I've had this knocking sound on the underside of my van for a long time. I took it to Les Schwab Tires & Brake. They couldn't pinpoint the noise, but they thought it was something else causing the noise to the tune of around $800. Paying that amount didn't cure the problem. The same noise is not too soft nor too loud, just in between. My van still drives okay. Once in awhile I hear a clunk noise when shifting from Park to "D".

I replaced the battery and started my GMC van, started right up, sounded good. I had a broken line on my brakes so I disconnected the battery and had the vehicle towed to the shop. When they reconnected the battery it was extremely difficult to start and barely ran at all. What happened?

I dont have the fuse box cover and need to know what fuse is for tge headlights and rear lights

mounted new starter . went to reconnect battery, touched red to terminal and the van cranked without key in! What is wrong? Is ECU involved?

aalso shake bad over 40 miles per hour

Had replaced the battery,starter, and alternator. Ran good for about a day. Then the battery drained and died while running. What's the problem now?

checked obvious stuff like fuses.
im thinking that the odometer is responding to the speedometer.
should i start my search for the cause at the speed sensor or some place else?

The old one rumbled for awhile. Then started to make a high pitch noise. Eventually stopped working at all. I put a new blower fan in. There's power to the unit but still doesn't work!

Excluding obviously poor quality mfg, like China, there is still a range from Delphi at at$70 to Ac Delco at $300. What is the reason for this. Im i getting more if I pay more?Last week I got a new fuel pump assembly priced at $280 locally, for $48 on line. It was perfect. I understan the brick and mortat mark up but that does not address why the vast price range on line. Am I missing something here?

Question 2. as long as I am at it should I change out plugs and wires as well?

a cracked distributor housing makes me want to replace it. what do you think?

Can jump the negative wire and compressor starts. But can't leave the jump as it would drain power when off..
I've heard there has been problems with wiring harness corroding and wires breaking. Do I need whole harness replaced? CPU?

why is my safari carriage so squeaky? not the pop associated with ball joints just eee eee eee sqeaky! and there is a smooth bounce to it when on the road..could both be from shocks

i thought it might be the flywheell but then i jacked the back ened of the truck up on stands and it didnt ping at all

after all this emission report read "incomplete" no visible pipe cracks..what else should I look for ERG issue?

I did a scan for my check engine light and it says cylinder 3 is misfiring

steering feels very loose

When shutting off engine, dash gauges go down as I would expect. 5 sec later they go back up. Something is not shutting off.

My windshield wipers will quit working. I found on here that there was a recall in 2007 for this problem.

Think my radiator fluid is from here.

I have a leak behind the ac compressor that trickles down the front of the motor. I thought it was the thermostat or the water pump but all is good with them.

It is about 10 inches long has a yellow head it;s a female 3 prong and it is a wire. It is wrapped in some kind of tape for heat protection. It seems to be connected to a small bolt in to the frame to the right of the oil filter about 5 inches back.It wasn't hanging down the last time I checked. Can't find what is is suppose to be plugged into

Any solutions I found like change cylinder or check short circuit or change fuell pump check I ignition circuit , veteran module ,fusses relays, wiring , has no trouble. Battery is new .starter to.so I do not know what I can do whit this problem. So if some body can help. Anticipated thanks for.

3 doors cant figure out how top open to open up two under it?

I start the engine, doors lock, but while I'm driving down the road the door locks click like they're trying to lock aagain.Also, when I shut off my vehicle the radio automatically shuts off instead of playing for 20 minutes or a door is opened. I'm trying to think of what might be wrong.

Can anybody help with brake line routing to help me find & repair a leak? Seems that leak is somewhere around the front frame crossmember - Thanks

Old brg housing frozen - how do you get it out?
