#24 of 33 Re: noise from front left; thump 2005 Tahoe - thanks; liftgate [alston28]

Turns out it the fix done per the bulleting didn't fix the problem. Also, rotating tires didn't solve the "thump." Took it to dealer yesterday (mainly for the lift gate problem). The shop foreman rode with me, and heard both noises. They made the following repairs, no charge:
Rattle from front left, when turning left
Cause: noisey E7638 Support, Steering Column Replace 469 WS96
FC: 2W part#: Count:0
Cause: Noisey E7620 Bearing and/or Bushing, Steering Shaft Lower Replace 469 WS96
1 88963617 Bearing 1 Misc TC
I haven't driven it enough to know whether these fixes solved the problems.

The other morning, I woke up and noticed oil dripping from the stabilizer bar. Looking under the engine, I cannot tell where it is leaking from. Anyone else have this problem? I would greatly appreciate any input. Also, turning the steering wheel when turning, the front "jumps" a little and/or knocks at least once.

Had it looked at. Apparently since I already had the timing gasket done, it was leaking at the very front of the oil pan. The oil pan gasket was bad. Got it replaced. No more leaks. The knocking/jumping with turning turned out to be a loose nut on the control arm. Tightened it, and it's fixed. Hope this helps someone.

The title pretty much explains it all...I heard this was recalled so many years back. I take it this cannot be fixed anymore complimentary of the dealership (if it was recalled)?

Replace power steering pump. My 08 was doing the same thing.

#32 of 33 2006 Tahoe Intermittent Noise
Apr 30, 2012 (10:34 am)
When I start off -- w/in three blocks -- there is a grinding noise from the left front. Lasts about 5 seconds and then stops. May happen once a day or thereabout. I recently had all brakes, etc., replaced. Any ideas? Other than this it runs fine -- 120,000 miles and going strong.

Doesn't seem to be...I drove 1500 miles over the last two weeks and it was fine. I am thinking it may be the spring on the emergency brake. I park on a slight incline and put the brake on. It was not working properly and they had to adjust it. I read somewhere that a spring can malfunction...I just don't know if that is it.
