The rear differential is doing its job. The wheels are turning at different speeds as you turn, because the radius of the inside wheel is far smaller than the radius the outside wheel makes as it turns. The differential keeps both wheels spinning at the same rate, which means the inside tire is spinning faster than it needs to while in the turn.

97 GMC K1500 4x4 not locking in/ blinking lights


When it is in 4x4 check and see if you can turn the front drive shaft. If you can the problem is in the front end. If you can't the problem is in the trasfercase.

Car is squealing persistently from rear right tire


Pull the wheel,you will find that the brake pad,or after pulling the drum,the shoes are in bad shpe,if not ,check the wheel bearing,but my bet is the shoes,or pads are bad,do A brake job,it will most likely be the problem.

2005 GMC Envoy Locked in 4WD all the time


If your luck it's going to be a $15.00 vacuum switch on the transfer case that takes about 15 min to replace, if it's the electronic solenoid to the transfer case then it's going to be cost a little more and take a little longer. If your try switching from 4WD to 2WD and hear the solenoid working by hearing the cluck's when it engages and disengage then it's going to be the vacuum switch on top of the transfer case on the drivers side. Auto Zone Sell's them for $15.00 and they will have the step by step instructions to replacing the switch. They will also have the transfer case solenoid  too, if you don't hear the solenoid. Check the fuses, the fuse may have gone bad. Good luck and hope this helps.

Right rear wheel locking up


okay you had brake work done!!! "THINKING" that was the problem originally right rear wheel locking up! okay,,, so doing brakes has not solved your problem! I would maybe look into rear end bearing??? do you have any load road noise from rear and do you have rear end fluid in differential? question to you was the baking plate ""WET"" looked damp? or moister get at it!??? seal might have leaked all fluid out??? all the above would be good place to start! good luck I hope this info helps you out.Happy new year.
