2000 deville


Recommended Posts

hello, my caddy is making a noise , like rattleing coming from what seems like the front left wheel, when i press on the brakes, i hear it, or turn the coner, like it is whobble, or grinding on something. also, when turning, its a noise, like somthing is loose, or needs lubing. can some one please help me with some idea of what this could be, i just got ripped off from the dealer, on a tranny. i dont want this to happen again. i have a trip coming up real fast, and need my caddy running perfect. any ideas wil be highly appreciated!!! so as to know if i can take it to a wheel machanic, or back to the dealer :( thankyou again, sweet caddy ps/ its a 2000 deville 4.6 northstar with 93, 000 miles

Jack up the wheel and grab it at 3 and 9 o'clock and see if you have any play. It sounds like a hub bearing. But your description is very broad, it could also be a brake pad / rotor problem (metal on metal). How is it at highway speeds are you getting a shimmy or groan?

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Have you checked the brake pads? If they are the original pads and you have 90,000+ on the odometer, there might not be anything left of the pads except for the metal backing plate....

I think there is a bulletin on greasing the intermediate steering column shaft.
