I am having the same problem. Were you able to figure out what was wrong with your radio?

Todd, if you haven't found a solution to your problem, I may have one... although the problem only happened in drive after several minutes of driving...
several years ago, I had the same thing happen... it took the Chevy dealer 3 visits to solve this.. there is a rubber seal on the inside of the front wheel that was rubbing up against the hub? or something else.. can't remember as it was so long ago

Hello I have an 04 rainier. When I take off I start to get a roaring sound that semms to be coming from the front driver side. The faster I go the Faster the roaring which makes me believe it is in the wheel. Then as a decrease speed it slows down. Is this the wheel bearing going out?

It really sounds like a hub bearing to me--to double check lift that side of the vehicle and spin the wheel by hand then try rocking it side to side---there should be no noise and very miminal movement of the wheel---usually this repair requires the enlistment of a qualified mechanic for the repair because of special tools needed---also don't wait to long to get it repaired because you are placing yourself in a dangerous situation

I own a '05 buick rainier and what I need to know---is the oil pressure gauge supposed to read over 80 lbs of pressure constantly whether I am at idle or at driving speeds---when I turn off the engine the gauge does go down to zero and is there a way of checking the gauge foe accuracy---thanks

Oil pressure may vary with engine speed, outside temperature and oil viscosity, but readings above the low pressure zone indicate the normal operating range. A reading in the low pressure zone may be caused
by a dangerously low oil level or other problems causing
low oil pressure.
I would be happy to ask our Technical Assistance Center for more information on this, but would need the last 8 digits of your VIN. If you were to email that to me, that'd be great!

Hello again handandy3,
I heard back from our Technical Assistance Center:
"Below are the minimum oil pressure readings (a service document). We recommend the vehicle be brought to a dealer so the vehicle can be properly diagnosed to determine if there is a concern.
• Oil Pressure – Minimum – Hot 41 kPa at 1,000 engine RPM
124 kPa at 2,000 engine RPM
165 kPa at 4,000 engine RPM
6 psig at 1,000 engine RPM
18 psig at 2,000 engine RPM
24 psig at 4,000 engine RPM
I hope this is helpful for you! If I can assist in any other way, please let me know.

Can you tell me if you have found a solution for this problem yet? My buick rainier 04 starts having the same problem now.
It is at dealership now for a different problem at this moment but I would like to know if I should expect another problem.
