Question about 2000 Chevrolet Suburban
I drove my 2000 chevrolet suburban as the vehicle was moving it felt like the emergency brakes automatically went on although it wasn't on then it began knocking from the back rear wheels, when my husband checked it there was oil leaking badly from the back and when he drove again it began knocking really bad. The leak came from a round part from the back what could that part be? Is it replaceable? How much will that estimate be to refix it?
First, STOP DRIVING IT!!! it sounds like your rear differential.
Best case scenario, it has a leak on the gasket and that is why you saw the oil spill. If that's the case it is a pretty simple fix: buy a new gasket and refill.
Worst case scenario, the leak has damaged your gears. You will be able to tell this when you take off the cover, if there are a lot of metal shavings you may be in for a costly repair.
I can't emphasize enough tho, DO NOT DRIVE IT right now. not until you find out. if you havent hurt anything, you may be alright, but if you drive it you WILL be in for some trouble
