    right it is An AWD equinox LT 05.

    whenever I am making sharp turns and have to spin my steering wheel maximum either anti/clockwise to turn I hear some resistance noise or strain. any thoughts

    When I make tight circles in a parking lot to park, or at a gas station I get a loud rubbing/ grinding noise from the rear end of my 2005 Chevy equinox. It is the LT so it is AWD but it only clicks in when it is slipping, so at the time it is not in AWD when this happens. Should this be the same problem? It only has 30,000 miles on it.... should I be seeing issues already?

I forgot to ask if the noise was front or rear and stationary or moving so I will cover both.

If the noise is while the truck is stationary and the noise is from the front I would have to say the power steering pump. I have been changing several lately for similar concerns.

As far as the rear if the noise happens while making sharp turns and makes a whirring/growling noise while in motion its the rear differntial. What you can do yourself to be sure is find an open lot and drive in rather tight circles for about a minute, then noise should stop. This action flushes the clutch disks and stops the noise. If the noise goes away you will need to do a rear diff flush.

The fluid is very expensive so be sure this is your problem first.

In order to do the flush drive in tight circles for 5 minutes in each direction and then drain and fill the rear diff with the new Versatrak fluid.

Good Luck

Pulsating humming from rear even when in Park


It is always helpful to know the make, model, and year of the vehicle. I assume that the engine is running when you hear this noise? Just from what you describe, i would suspect that what you're hearing is the electric fuel pump in the gas tank. If you turn off the engine does the noise stop? (i hope so!) It is not uncommon to hear a noise like this coming from the electric fuel pump. When cars accumulate a lot of years on them, the pumps tend to become more noisy over time. If the vehicle has 100,000 mi or more on it, it could be a sigh that the fuel pump is wearing out. Have you had any problems lately with it, like stalling, etc.? If it is running ok, i wouldn't worry about it unless you're having operational issues. you could be hearing it now because original insulation or rubber stand-offs on the metal lines have deteriorated or worn down and are conducting the noise. If it were me and i was really concerned, i would start the car, set the emergency brake and chock the wheels and get underneath it to see exactly where the noise is coming from. It could be something as simple as something just vibrating while the car is running. hope this helps a little

Chevy equinox 2006 Brakes Grinding, Pulsating, and Resisting


You did not mention rotors but that could be the source of the grinding. The pulsating probably is traceable to your ABS and traction control syatems

I recently put new front brake pads and had rotors turned on the front end of my 2003 tundra sr5,after a month of driving i'm getting the pulsation when braking back which is why i made this repai


HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

good luck

My 2001 saturn is making a thumping noise from the right front tire. It is not the tire. Thump.Thump.Thump, as the cars moves forward. there is no shaking, just thumping.


  1. Inspect your tire. Look for any bubbles or knots on the side of the tire. Look for any damage to the tread. A bubble or knot can mean that you hit a curb, pothole or another object on the road. Bubbles and knots can sometimes be repaired, but more often lead to the need for replacement of the tire.
  2. Think about what you were doing when you first noticed the tire noise. If you just hit a pothole or a curb, chances are you have a bubble on your tire and that it needs to be fixed or replaced. If you had recently spun out of control or had to make a forced turn quickly, you might have an alignment problem and the noise might not be a tire issue at all.
  3. Listen to the noise while you're driving. If it's a repeated thud on regular intervals, you likely have a severe knot problem on your tire. Take the car to a tire repair place as soon as possible. Tire knots may not appear serious at first but can be potentially dangerous.
If you have no others noise especially into turns (it would be a suspension problem, i.e., cv joints) then it is a tire issue.

05 Jeep GC 5.7 Hemi AWD- low grade groaning road noise


Pulsating in the brake pedal is normally an indication of ABS problems or master cylinder problems. A quick check after a short trip may isolate this further. drive the vehicle about 1 or 2 miles, preferably on a highway, then get out and feel for heat from the tires one at a time. Be careful not to touch the hot areas of the wheels. If you feel more heat coming from one tire than the others then the Caliper may be sticking causing the problem. You also need to check your read brakes this way as well as they could also cause this problem if they are sticking.

Thumping or clicking noise when steering sharp right turns


If it's a 4WD then your front universal joint(s) on the front wheel drive shafts are on the way out and should be replaced. They should be replaced as a pair (both sides) so that you have uniform wear, but you can replace the bad one to solve the problem. The noise should be coming from one side or the other, indicating which one is going bad, but it's most likely the right sive CV joint. Also, it the rubber boot on the end of the driveshaft is damaged or torn, that would point to the offending joint. Your parts store should be able to sell you a reconditioned half shaft to fix the problem. Replacement can be done at home with decent tools.
