These are side products of the all wheel drive system, incombo with the locking rear dfferentials.

You'll find the auto-lockers will tend to do that following a tight turn, particularly when you're doing it quickly.

The thud is similar in nature; it's just the All wheel system trying to figure out where to put the power.

SOURCE: Wheels locking up when turning sharply left or right

Could be one of several problems in the rear diff.
It depends if its the optional locking rear diff and it's stuck locked, or it is the limited slip and something inside caused it to lock.

See a mechanic before you do more damage.

The suspension levelors are vaucumn controlled, look for a leak in the vacumn lines and the levelors, sometimes to ease up your search you may use a spray solution of soapy water while the system is engaged to try to pin point the source of the leak.
Kinked, twisted, pinched or broken vacumn hoses are a straight forward sure sign of the problem repair/replace the defect and recheck your work to be sure it is repaired properly after the fix.

I have a 2006 Buick Rainier. When driving at lower speed and accelerating or turning the rear end seems to lock up and there is a grinding noise and jerking sensation. What can this be? We put it on


I finally received the answer to this problem with my '06 Rainier CXL. The front gear pack (in mine) needs to be replaced. Vehicle is driving AWD, all the time. Expensive repair- $1600. Mine has 93+K miles, the engine is in awesome condition. To repair or not to repair... that is my struggle.

2004 rainier egr valve location


Well, we have a couple problems here.

First of all, 2005 Buick Rainier is equipped with two different engines, 4.2L (VIN code "S") and the 5.3L (VIN code "P"). It would be really nice to know which one we are talking about.

Then, it doesn't really matter which engine your Buick is equipped with if you are looking for an EGR valve, because NEITHER of these engines is equipped with one.

Check to make sure te leveling switches by each wheel are working properly. There is a small link from each control arm that connects to the switch. These may be out of adjustment or broken. Also check all your air hose connections, it is most likely a bad O-ring or cracked fitting.

I have a 2004 Buick Rainier and the air suspension in the rear is dropping while I am driving. If I pull over turn the truck off wait a few minutes (2-3 minutes) turn the truck on it lifts back up. What is...


Sounds like air suspension bag leaking. (bag instead of spring) You can convert the car over to springs again, which are much cheaper then bags, but it will not have the load leveling capabilites that it used to have. The bags cost my local repair shop $168 EACH to buy (at his discounted price from the dealer.) It literally takes about 12 minutes to change the bags on each side! It is weird to look at them when you get it off. You will find dryrot cracks which when full inflated they seem to stop leaking. But the next morning, after a cold evening, the rear end will be all the way down.

I found it destroys the rear shock if driven very far when this condition occurs. I ONLY changed my rear shock to the KYB Gas Adjust, which the auto parts store will tell you they are not applicable to your car, but if you call KYB they will give the part number too you. However, I REGRET not having changed my front struts to the same spec KYB upgraded struts to match the rear upgrade.
