Dumb question - are you sure the wheel bearing isn't bad?

The only remaining possibility I know, is an impending failure of the transaxle; not a happy prospect.

the air bag is not ok, this is exactly what they do when they have a leak, these air bags are shot at about 100,000 miles, they start to leak at the creases, u will see cracks there.

Sure sounds like a throw out bearing having too much room. Might need adjustment.

I would get after the dealership for false diagnosis. You paid money to have it fixed and they didn't fix the problem. Sounds like a BAR violation to me. ( Bureau of Automotive Repair )
The most common problem with what your describing is:
1. Loose or bad strut, suspension parts.
2. Loose brake caliper or not properly seated brake rotor.

Those are the most common things I see in my shop with that type of problem. I wouldn't let the dealership get away with this.

I have a 93 regal buick and I can't turn my key something is lock. How can I unlock it?


It could simply be your steering wheel lock. Try turning the wheel to the left and right while you try turning the key.

I have a 2006 Buick Rainier. When driving at lower speed and accelerating or turning the rear end seems to lock up and there is a grinding noise and jerking sensation. What can this be? We put it on


I finally received the answer to this problem with my '06 Rainier CXL. The front gear pack (in mine) needs to be replaced. Vehicle is driving AWD, all the time. Expensive repair- $1600. Mine has 93+K miles, the engine is in awesome condition. To repair or not to repair... that is my struggle.

Hello, so I'm trying to better understand failing cv joints and how it can affect front differential on a front drive SUV. I read an article that when cv joints go bad it can affect the front differential...


First I think you read it wrong ,that Front WD suv have locking dif..they don't , it locks at the transfer case at the tranny and only on All Wheel Drive SUVs. And then it only transfer more power from back wheels to front wheel. The dif are open dif. means the power goes to the wheels with least resistance or limited slip dif. that transfers power to slower turning wheel. Yes max. load is at full lock and high speeds and yes it does damage over time (wear out), less at lower speeds. The symptoms of a failing cv is knocking while turning.

I want to make my 05 impreza front wheel drive


I can't see how this would affect your mileage by much since the engine still has to carry the weight of the centre and rear differentials.

Wouldn't do it to a new one either, you most likely wouldn't be covered under warranty if you did it either.
