CLUNK IN STEERING SHAFT


Sounds like this vehicle may have had some suspension or accident damage. It needs to be put up on a lift, engine running while someone turns the steering wheel back and forth, a second technician under the vehicle inspecting for where the interference exists when the clunking happens. I don't recommend driving this vehicle.

Gear box in my l300 4x4 ute is makeing a clunking sound in all gears apart from 4th and when clutch peddel is down it isnt makeing the clunking sound any ideas?


The bearings in the gear box are gone. When in 4th gear the input and output shafts turn at the same rate 1 to 1 ratio. In all other gears the shafts are turning a different rates and the clunking is a slight meshing of the gears. When the clutch is depressed there is no power (load) on the input shaft.

When turning the steering wheel it makes a clunking sound 2004 Pontiac any help??


Probably a bad intermediate shaft.

There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) published by GM because of this condition.

TSB Reference Number 06-02-35-010
Date Of Issue: May 09 2006
This bulletin involves replacing the intermediate shaft with an updated part.

Updated part number (per the TSB) is GM Part Number 26068295
This is an old TSB - you will probably want to check with your local GM dealer to make sure this part number has not been superceeded.

Every time the steering wheel is turned sharply to either side I hear a kind of cranking sound what seems like it is coming from the steering shaft.


Most sounds while turning (grinding, clicking, clunking, etc) indicate bad CV joints. I'd get this looked at ASAP...

When turning steering wheel - either way, clunking sound.


Sounds like you have a bad CV joint, this will make a clunking or clicking noise like you described only when turning, and varies with vehicle speed.

Have it repaired before it breaks and leaves you stranded, or damages anything else.

Steering concern when making slow turns or backing out of garage


Make sure that the coupling shaft from the column to the rack is tight at both ends. There is a pinch bolt on the ends. If they are tight try holding the shaft while turning. You will probably feel the clunking noise. If so replace the shaft.
