Question about 2002 Saturn VUE

Creaking under the car

Every little bump in the road and my 2002 Saturn Vue creaks. It's sounds like the frame or the undercarriage. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

The problem is a bushing....the other problem is identifying which one it is. It is almost impossible to duplicate the squeak if the vehicle is up on the rack...or if it is jacked up on stands or ramps. You have to try a process of elimination to isolate it. WD-40 or a can of liquid wrench (just about the same thing), crawl around underneath and spray one bushing at a time. It is some work to jack it up and drop it down but at least you can narrow it down.

Creaking sound


If it is really cold then the rubber insulators that are between the sub-frame and the body may be a bit loose and allowing movement. It may be worn / hard suspension rubbers squeaking under acceleration. Check the whole of the front of the car looking for rusted areas in the body and sub-frame that may be allowing body movement where there should be none.

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning


Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

I am getting a huge clunk in the front end of my 1997 Ford F-250 when turning into a driveway with any type of dip to it.


That would be the frame rivets creaking and poking. You need the dealer to address this properly.

I have taken my 2003 GMC Envoy in to a GM dealer more than 6 times to be repaired for a very loud creaking noise in the front end. When I brake, the creaking noise starts. Or if I go over a bump, the...


My wife drives a 2003 GMC Envoy and has been complaining about this same creaking noise upon breaking or going over speed humps. I researched this topic on the internet high and low and tried everything I read to no avail. I was about to give up and then realized it could be the motor mounts since when you break or go over bumps the engine does have some movement. Sprayed the most interesting looking motor mounts I've ever seen with silicone spray and the noise was gone! My wife has been complaining for years about this noise and now looking back what a simple solution!. By the way my motor mounts where not worn out, the rubber portion of the mount just needed a little lube.

I have an 03' vue with same problem. I took it to my garage, and found out it was indeed the strut. My mechanic told me that vues have issues with struts, and wheel bearings. You may want to have your struts checked.

Creaking sound while turning steering wheel


There's a chance that the ball joints need grease. This should help, however once they have started to make noise like that due to lack of grease, they usually have gone bad. Replacement may be the only remedy. Hope this helps.
