Question about 2006 GMC Envoy

Open Question

Yesterday a light turned on saying service stabilizer track and today it didn't turn on but if I'm making sharp turns it feels as if my tire kicks back and there's a loud sound. I also had a code come up saying I may have a faulty tps and how can I reset my oil life since the oil was changed.

SOURCE: "service tracking system goes on and off"

This is the automatic traction control system kicking it when going around corners. Vehicle may think tires are sliding around corners kicking in the traction control. If you don't like traction control, you should have a button to turn it off, or remove the fuse.

SOURCE: Steering is too sensitive

I will attempt to suggest a few things to check. You are correct about the stabilization. When new the vehicle is made top heavy. The owners manual warns that a SUV can lose composure in sudden manuvers.

Your vehicle is worn with 6 years of supporting the weight of the chassis on the suspension. There can be play in all the links and joints and the front-end alignment can be improperly set. This will affect handling. Your sway bars can have worn bushings.

By now you may have replaced tires. The inflation and type of tire it now has can make a difference. Soft tires can make a vehicle feel like it is running on bicycle tires. The tires can have weak sidewalls.

There is valving in the steering assembly. Some of the towing packages offered quick ratio power steering to aid in moving a towed boat or trailer into a tight position when backing up. You may feel overboosted when you go forward. Checking part numbers and changing something like a "rack and pinion" may give you the steering you want.

At the very least an alignment is the first thing to try.

My stability track light comes on but it doesn't always stay on and sometimes when I turn to the left it feels like the passenger side tire is rubbing. What is this and how can I fix it?


You can fix it by getting a good DIY mechanic or enthusiast or local garage to have a look. It maybe more serious than you think.

Engine light came on


Make sure your gas cap is tight, at least 5 clicks, sometimes a gas cap that doesn't seal tight will trigger the Check Engine Light. If the light stays on you will need to pull the Trouble Code from the ECM (Computer) using a OBD II scanner.

I replaced front track bar and stabilizer and now makes clanging sound when i make sharp left turn and doesnt turn for a coupel seconds when you turn to the right.


Sounds like a hub bearing. Jack up the front end and place a hand at the top and bottom of each front tire. Try to make the top or bottom of the wheel move inward and outward. This shouldn't move very much at all. The tolerance is measured in .000 of an inch. So if there is any significant movement, the hub bearing has failed. Another good part to check are your ball joints. If the hub isn't your problem, drop me a line and I'll tell you the procedure for checking the ball joints.

Service stability system message came on today-what does this mean? Is car safe to drive? cost to fix?,04 Deville DeVonia


I can only speak from experience and hope that you'll agree when I say that a "check engine light, an ABS light and the check stability service light all come on at various times due to events as sutle as a pothole or a sharp turn. These systems being independent of each other have their own computers which store codes.These codes often mean nothing, now, what IS important is if you feel a sudden change in the day to day operation of your vehicle. If not, I would, when given the time, take your vehicle to a proper dealership and have it checked and the codes cleared. Thank you, Dana

Turning problems


My Answer:

The one thing you never mentioned was if you had your Jeep SUV Front-end Aligned after you had the new tires installed?

I'm guessing/hoping you did???

Where did you have the work done at? Be specific here!

Was it a 2-wheel or 4-wheel alignment if that applies here? Big difference it was done RIGHT or if it was done WRONG? That's just maybe part of the problem though if it was indeed MIS-ALIGNED. When you say PULLING - that is a BIG CLUE right there of a possible MIS-ALIGNMENT!!

Not sure what size tires you had on it originally or which size new tires you had put on, but if the new tires were over-sized then you are rubbing on the mainframe or possibly rubbing the front fender wells??

This has happened before, as sometimes they don't pull the right size tires from stock, and then don't double check them before mounting them.

Esp when you are running bigger rims and lower profile tires, which might be your case, as you didn't say anything to the contrary.

If we're talking about STOCK tires for STOCK tires here then your driver side door decal will state the factory installed tires as to their proper size. Any modification to that as to bigger rims and lower profile tires has to be done to factory recommended specs. Lets hope so anyway!

If I were you I would be double checking everything, as to what was actually done, and as to what tires, etc were put on your SUV.

The clue to your problem lies right there to start with! After all nothing was mentioned about any "pulling" before you had the new tires put on.

Here's one last big clue as to if you actually got a "bad alignment" on your Jeep SUV.

Have someone else drive behind you on an empty straight flat street (or else have someone else drive your Jeep and you follow behind about 4 to 5 car lengths back). If your Jeep's body is trying to track crooked (as if on an angle diagonal to straight ahead) as the tires are trying to track straight ahead - then you definitely just got a bummer mis-alignment!

I'm putting my money this is the case, as I've seen it so many times it's not funny.

It called a "shade tree alignment" and for good reason.

Let me know I was right?
