January 03, 2015, 01:52 PM
Driving home car was fine, then after a stop sign heard loud clunking noise. Thought it was a flat, but no. Kept happening sporadically the rest of the way home. Loud clunking noise from underneath, sounds like it is coming from center of the car. Didn't see anything hanging from underneath the car.
Question Asked: Burning rubber smell under hood

There is a very distinct smell, like burning rubber, that is coming from the drivers side of the hood. There doesn't appear to be anything loose, etc. Recently thought, my steering wheel has been making creaking noises and sometimes creaking noises near the break pedal possibly (it is hard to determine where that one is specifically coming from).

When going over even slightly bumpy roads, there is a very loud rattling coming from back of car. Now, there is also a very loud metal on metal sound coming from the hood as well. It sounds like the whole under of the car is going to fall off.
Question Asked: Lights on Speedometer only light up halfway

The lights on the Speedometer only light up to 70mph. It lit up all the way halfway to work and stayed on. Tonight, again it only lights up halfway and this time it stayed only half lit. Is it a fuse or a battery issue?

Car is very difficult to start in morning. When putting key in, speedometer engages and makes a ticking sound. Turns over or tries to on 7th or 8th try then fully turns over, next time you start the car it is fine. Is it a battery issue or possible electrical issue?
Question Asked: Car makes a loud whining sound when accelerating.

When accelerating the car makes a loud whining sound, the sound is not there when driving normally. There is also a clunking sound coming from underneath car sporadically. You hear it sometime from rear passage side, next time it is the middle of the car. There is no rhyme or reason to the sounds.
Question Asked: Transmission went out after Body COntrol Module replaced.
December 24, 2012, 09:23 PM
My car took several tries to get it started. Took it to have battery tested. Battery was fine, didn't receive bad gas everything looks good, then they couldn't get car started. Determined it was the BCM because they couldn't get it to reset. My mechanic (very trustworthy) towed it to a GMC dealer who replaced the BCM. They say car starts but wont move/no power and the transmission needs replacing, the trans fluid is very dark and a burnt smell. Car is only at 82500 and it isnt recommended til 100,000 miles. Had it towed back to house but tow truck driver drove it around the block and said he didn't feel/see any problems. Would it be worth having my mechanic change or flush the trans fluid? Was the dealer just screwing with me?
Question Asked: Loud rubbing noise when braking
October 07, 2012, 02:16 PM
I had the brakes replaced little more than a year ago. Lately when you brake (more so when you put harder pressure on the brakes, not so much during light braking)you hear a rubbing noise from front of car. The brakes work fine, there is no fear of not stopping from that noise, but, what are the potential causes?
