1992 GMC sierra two wheel drive 4.3l V6 Have a vibration or rubbing noise when I turn the steering wheel sharply to the left at parking lot speeds.


If you let go of steering wheel and step on brakes does the wheel vibrate?

I'd say its either warped rotors, power steering malfunction, or possible wheel bearing, although if wheel bearing you should feel/hear a hum which would get louder depending on which way you turn the vehicle.

Brake fluid is spilling out on the ground from rear passenger side when in park and pumping the brakes


Try and pinpoint where it is leaking.First start by cleaning everything off (brake fluid) of wheel hub.Check to make sure the bleeder valve is closed(tight).While you have someone applying pressure to brake pedal look on back of wheel hub and search for leak.Search on brake line,brake line fittings,around bleeder.

2006 gmc 2500 vibration around 60 mph stops when I let off gas


Usually a vibration is due to one or more parts that have become worn or damaged. I'm not sure why you mentioned the tires but don't disregard them unless you know that they are fine. Check for correct inflation (on the door jam), for uneven tread wear, or bubbles and damage.
Other things that can cause a vibration is the front-end needing an alignment, a tire that is unbalanced, worn out steering components (like a wheel-bearing), defective u-joints and/or an unbalanced drive-shaft, or low gear-oil level in the drive-axle can cause damage to the ring & pinion gear. The damage would primarily be on one side. So when you let off the gas pedal the sound goes away. Check as much as you can and let me know how it is going.

When the brakes are applied thereis a vibration , and some noise. IT is not severe unless it becomes necessary to brake really hard in which case it causes the steering wheel to vibrate. It has been to a...


If the brakes are fine, try rotating the wheels.
The tires it self could have a bad belt in it and have a soft spot. Try putting the front tires to the rear and the rear to the front, double check the tire pressure and see if the vibration go's away.
If the vibration is still there then the tires are good and it's the brake rotor or worn steering parts and or needs a wheel alignment. As the front end drops the toe-in changes geometry and may just be out enough to cause the wheels to vibrate.
Good luck and hope this help. I fine the brake rotors inexpensive enough at a parts store that it's better to change them rater then have then turned to a smooth surface again. If your handy try changing the rotors with new one's. Auto Zone has the parts and would give the step by step instructions to do the job.
