I have 1997 GMC Suburban. It will crank but when you have it in gear it goes no where when you press the gas and makes a loud noise. Was told it might be the flywheel. I am not a mechanic and don't have...


If it's not a transmission problem, which is usually the case, I would check to make sure your drive shaft is still connected and that the u-joints are in good shape. If you can possibly see under the truck while someone presses the gas, you can see if the drive shaft is turning. If the drive shaft is spinning and its still not engaging, that loud noise may very well be the gears grinding/broke inside the back axle (rear differential). Just a few things to check, hope it helps in some way!

1997 GMC Suburban electric 4WD will not engage 4WD


Check the actuator cable that activates the front axle disconnect. It is bolted to the inner fender and the cable runs down to the axle. If you apply vacuum it should pull in and shift the interlock. To see if it is working, jack up the right front so the tire clears. The tire should rotate pretty free. Now engage the interlock. The tire should become harder to turn and the front drive shaft should turn. Now engage the 4X4 (with the trans in park) and see if you can still turn the tire. You shouldn't be able to turn it with the interlock activated.

Keep us upodated (remember to rate this answer).

I can hear an intermittent (grind then no grind) noise, the frequency of which increases when the speed of the vehicle increases. It sounds as if it is coming from the rear wheel. Im in an 1997 Isuzu...


Not the CV joint, I don't think you have one in the rear, but the wheel bearing, yes, Next time you drive it, crawl under there and feel the rear end next to the wheel, Careful, Hot? How about closer to the wheel, then how about the drum dust cover itself? If it hotter than it should be, like oil boiling out or brake fluid boiling out, time to change the bearing, don't wait for it to seize on the axle, you will have to cut it off. You will need to check the book on the way the axle comes out, some come right out, some are attached inside the rear end, need to be un-clipped, then the axle will come out, You will need a slide hammer or a chain to snatch it out of there. Good luck, hope this helps.

I have a 2002 gmc sierra 2 wheel drive and when I take off initially and when I turn left I hear a grinding/grumling noise.


Loose or damaged Wheel-Bearing causing other parts to rub together, like the brake components or your wheels are too big or shocks weak, or exhaust hanging and are rubbing against something.
Perhaps oil is leaking from your rear axle housing dut to bad seals (check inner of wheels) and around axle housing - remove plug and check that your finger can reach in and touch it. Could be a sign of rear end failure or simply the backing plates on the brakes behind the rotors and the drums (steel disk) sometimes rust on the drums can grind against the backing plates if they are weak or warped (clean this area).

Clanging noise rear and rear don't pull


The axle probably lost a keeper ring on the inside of the differential and the pieces may be going through the differential and ring&pinion gearing making the noises you hear. You will need to drain the oil out, find the broken pieces, and inspect all gearing for broken/damaged teeth, and for any noisy bearings. Flush the case out with cleaning solvent. Re-insert the loose axle after cleaning and inspecting it well--especially the interior end. Replace the keeper (new) on the axle end inside the differential spider gearing. Inspect the brakes on the loose axle side for any oil deposits and for any damage that might have been caused when the axle came out. If the differential is badly damaged, it might be cheaper to find another rear end in a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!

1997 diesel suburban steering goes left


I doubt it's your 4x4. Most transfer case will start turning the front driveshaft, meaning that BOTH front wheels would try to turn.

Could be a brake pad/caliper locking up on your left wheel. That'll make that wheel turn slower resulting in the veering left.

Could also be a wheel bearing. However usually you'll hear a grinding noise to go along with that. And it'll pull rather consistently in that direction rather than suddenly.

Or, what first comes to mind is that your steering box is loose, or the gear inside the steering box is stripped in one spot. Or your front tie rods could be shifting or possibly ball joints. These would cause a sudden shifting/veering.

All of these things are front end related. And also very dangerous. Take it down to any alignment shop, have them put it on a lift, and diagnose immediately.

Worse case scenerio is that a front end part breaks and sends you out of control and into someone else. Please get it checked. A diesel Suburban could do a lot of damage.
