Question about 2006 Chevrolet Colorado

1 Answer

I was hearing a crunching sound comming from my truck while going around turns, accelerating, and decelerating. The shop told me that they adjusted and lubed my cab mounts. I was just wondering how they lube them. Do they just apply grease to the outside rubber on the mount? And how can you adjust them? Don't they just have a bolt and a nut that has a torque spec?

The "SHOP" Lied to you as there is NO Such Procedure, they MAY have SPRAYED some Penitrating Oil on them but thats ALL they Could Have Done, This sounds like a SUSPENTION Problem, SEAT MOUNTS, or Simply the Mounts Groaning and May Need Replaced all together. If CV Joints have been ruled OUT.

I have a 98 Gmc Jimmy and everytime I accelerate it makes this noise around the front passenger side and it sounds like when you would put a card in the spokes of a bicycle...? Any ideas of what this

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Could also be a CV. Make sure you know what wheel before you replace anything. Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand. If correct wheel you will hear it. Hope this helps

High pitch nosie from rear end of 2004 ford f-150 supercrew

Does the sound change while accelerating or decelerating?? If it does i would suspect a carrier bearing or a pinion bearing going bad..If its consistant,,and doesnt change with acceleration or deceleration,,then it may be a axle bearing..

Sounds kind of like a crunching sound? right front end in drive, left front end in reverse, has all new frame bushings, new struts with springs and bearing plate, new brakes, front end shop sees nothing...

Seems like the noise is related to torque reaction from the engine/power unit that can move quite a lot under acceleration/deceleration especially if an engine mount is soft or broken.

Perhaps the exhaust or similar is badly positioned and is too close to the bodywork.

Searching for a noise that can't be duplicated on a workshop hoist needs imagination and some carefully placed brute force...

Front end noise

A suspension part is worn out - lift the front of the car and check the bushings (most likely), the pivots and the ball bearings.

CV Joints

You will usually hear a real loud clicking sound when your turning at a tight radius in either direction. Check the rubber boots over the joints. If they are cracked or ripped off you will need to replace them.There will be 2 on each side. If they are real noisy just replace the entire half-shafts. Shop around for axle shaft assy prices, typically $100.00 - $300.00 each side.

Hooting sound when driving

I had a similar problem. Turned out it was a vacuum line on the firewall on the passenger's side had come off. When you accelerate, the line sucks air and makes that long "hooooooooooot" until you let off the gas. Have you noticed it's burning even MORE gas? You'll need a bright light, even in sunlight to see the lose hose line.

Clunking noise w/ acceleration

Ya know it sounds like one of the U-Jonts in the front drive line to the front wheels has failed or even one of the driveline U- joints is either Dry and lost its bearings and is worn out,
One of the easiest ways to make sure its not the engine is while driving down a hill put the car in neutral, turn off the engine coast down a small hill and turn to either direction and see if you still hear it , if you still hear it its gonna be somewhere in the drive lines, becareful you will not have power steering or power brakes with the engine off, but you can restart the engine inn neutral at any time . Please let me know.
