problem #2

In the morning - below say about 55 degrees when I first get in and drive, I have to turn the wheels to the left to exit my driveway. For the first minute or two, the steering is very stiff, almost like manual - then it goes normal for the remainder of the day.

problem #1

Dec 012004

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles
The contact complained about rack and pinion steering problem. The vehicle clanged while changing gears. When putting pressure on the accelerator pedal and driving between 60 - 70 mph he could hear a whining sound. When he released the accelerator pedal the noise stopped. The dealership replaced the driveshaft but, this did not correct the problem.
