Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille
I just got home from work and was pulling into my garage I put the car in reverse then put it in drive to get in the garage and it started making this loud noise and vibrating really bad. The noise wasnt like when your low on steering fluid it was like a low grindy bumpy like rolling a r off your tongue noise but loud. the steering is getting a little hard but I can still turn fine. By the way the blinkers went out about three days ago and the fuse is fine and the check engine light isnt on and weve been having a antifreeze leak and overheating problem which it hasn't overheated for a long time because im very careful about letting the temp get too high the overheating thing has lasted about 7 months or so. please help
Noises are kind of difficult to diagnos if you don't hear them
firsthand. That said, the thing I would be looking at is the strut
bearing. It is circular like a lazy susan and what happens on cars over
75,000 miles is dirt can accumulate in the bearings and it can cause a
grinding or popping because it resists turning and when it does the
spring is suddenly turned and that sets up the noise.
If that is the problem I would recommend replaceing both sides and then you will need to get the alignment done. Let me know if I can be anymore help
