So... my steering wheel sounds like this
2000 Yukon 5.3 4wd
funny vid, mine sounds like that to
could be intermediate steering shaft
Haven't figured mine out yet either, but mine only does it every once in a while. I think I remember it doing it more often when I first bought it.
I doubt it's the intermediate shaft cause the sound is up too close to the actual steering wheel.
Hard to say. But it may be the steering shaft. That's a fairly common problem on these trucks. I would let a mechanic hear it and see what he has to say.
you would be surprised what noises the intermediate steering shaft can make. GM just cant get them right for some reason
Is it a safety hazard to ignore the noise?
I guess I just wanted to know if I have to fix it so it won't fall apart on the interstate and kill me or is it just an annoying noise if left unfixed?
I was wondering the same thing myself.
no it wont fall apart. in fact i drove a tahoe today with the same exact noise. its the intermediate steering shaft. common gm problem. u could try to lube...use lithium grease not wd40.
mine does it on my 02 with 160k also like everyone seas its common my dads 04 duramax did it at 5,000 miles had a recall and all they did was lube the steering shaft but it will come back over time just have to live with it
