2002 Buick Park Avenue humming noise?


Why would you not diagnose & repair, if necessary, the
ABS/Trac issue,seeing as how your very though on
everthing else.

Resolve the Code related issue first

Change the Power Steering Fluid & add some Lubgard
Additive,no other product to any thing on vehicle except
Lubgard in the trans ,which along with the P/S should be
changed every 3 years

Your noise is the transaxle or alternator,unless you have
some ABS Pump or HCU issues there

Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful assistance.

Discussion

Replacing the rear wheel bearings on these vans is relatively simple pretty simple. However, the first thing that you must do is satisfy your self that it's the bearing and not something rubbing on a tire or something else back there in the rear.

Follow this steps to diagnose the problem:
  1. Jack up the rear of the car
  2. shake the wheel side to side and top to bottom.
  3. if there is any wobble in it then it is a wheel bearing.
  4. However, you cant alway tell by the shake test.
  5. You can also go down the road and swerve side to side (being careful of oncoming traffic).
  6. Iif you swerve to the right and the noise is loudest on the left side.
  7. If you swerve to the left and its louder its on the right side.

How to remove and replace rear wheel bearings.

Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section of your User Manual.

Remove or disconnect the following:
  1. Rear wheel
  2. Brake drum or caliper
  3. Wheel speed sensor, if equipped
  4. Hub and bearing assembly from the rear axle

To install:

Install or connect the following:

  1. Hub and bearing assembly. Tighten the bolts to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
  2. Wheel speed sensor, if equipped. Tighten the bolt to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  3. Brake drum or caliper
  4. Rear wheel

While driving down the road my 88 chevy 1500 wants to swerve to the left and then to the right. I had the wheels balanced, and have put new shocks on the front. Any ideas?


Check ball joints and tie rod ends for play. Jack the truck up on the frame and try to move the wheel up and down for ball joints and side ti side for tie rod ends. Also make sure you check the idler arm on passenger side and pitman arm on steering box. None of the parts should any play whatsoever. If there is any play in them when you try to move them then replace them.
There could also be excessive play in the steering box but that shouldn't make it swerve back and forth. That would just let it wander to one side or the other until you corrected it by turning the wheel. Hope this helps.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

Speed sensitive steering loose at higher speeds


Check the rear upper control arm bushings. Try to move the rear wheels in and out at the top with the car sitting on the ground. This is real common.

Rear end noise from front wheel drive car


At that mileage it could be, and most likely is given your description of the noise. I assume it reduces in volume as you slow down. If you can find a quite piece of road drive up to where the noise is apparent and lightly swerve from left to right. (Don't roll the car!! ) If the noise reduces as you swerve left then its the left bearing. If its when you swerve right that the noise reduces its the right bearing. If its both the only way is to jack the rear up and spin the wheels as fast as you can and listen. If there's a hint of a rumble from it, its that bearing or both. It should be completely quite apart from the slight hiss as the shoes rub on the drum.
35K may not seem much but if you don't know the history of the car it could have hit a bad pot hole or even had a knock on a kerb.
I have replaced bearing with a lot less miles than yours.

Cheers John

Wheel Bearings


Yep - our cars are known for eating wheel bearings (I have a 99 2.8 quattro). I just did my rear left, which was howling, and now that it is quiet, I can hear the rear right going bad. The B5 chassis cars (96-01) are known for wheel bearing, control arm, and cruise control failures almost as much as they're known for fantastic driving and excellent traction in bad weather.
