    Every time I make a turn (left or right) in my GMC Sierra, I hear a knock in what appears to be the steering. I had the knuckle replaced, but it still does it? Any ideas?

The noise you are hearing is coming from the inter. steering shaft. You can lube it as per bulletin or replace it. When you lube it use a tefflon based grease 1. remove the shaft 2.streach it out 3. install grease 4. make a plug and stick it in the end where you put the grease 5. push on the shaft to collapse it and the grease will forced throuth the splines of the shaft coming out the other end 6.reinstall

Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel


this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

Where are the lubrication fittings on a 2007 Ford Expedition EL?


There are usually no fittings to grease on the ball joints or steering linkages. Recommend a front end inspection every other oil change as I have seen the ball joints go bad at 50000 miles.

Inspect Brakes and Traction Control Evaporative Emissions System (E) Inspect all the fuel and vapor lines and the hoses for proper hook-up, routing and condition. Ensure that the purge valve works properly, if equipped. Replace the components as needed. Exhaust Gas Recirculation (E) Fluid - Differential Inspect front/rear axle fluid level and add fluid as needed. Check constant velocity joints and axle seals for leaking. Lubricate Steering and Suspension Lubricate the front suspension, ball joints, steering linkage, transmission shift linkage, transfer case shift linkage, parking brake cable guides, and brake front axle. Ball joints should not be lubricated unless their temperature is -12 degrees C (10 degrees F) or higher or they could be damaged. Replace Air Filter Element (E) Engine Oil (E) Change engine oil and filter as indicated by the GM Oil Life System (or every 12 months, whatever occurs first). Reset the indicator. Never drive the vehicle more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) without and oil and filter change. The system will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner. Fuel Filter (E) Oil Filter, Engine Rotate Tires
