Hello and thank you for using Justanswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your GMC problem.

 

Is it a single clunk when accelerating?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes its a single clunk, it happens frequently when moving off from a stop line or when i would suddenly accelerate

 

 

Expert:  Dave Nova replied 2 years ago.

The common problem with the H2 is the body mount bushings popping. The fix is to install insulators between the body mount bushings and the frame.

i said that i have a H3 and NOT a H2

Expert:  Dave Nova replied 2 years ago.
Sorry, missed that information. Be right back
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 2 years ago.
On the H3, a clunk when accelerating is normally caused by the driveshaft sticking on the output shaft of the transfer case. The fix is to clean and lubricate the internal splines of the front driveshaft yoke. Use GM Special Lubricant for this.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

 

do you think that the front propeller shaft universal joint could be a source of a problem; my mechanic said it is broken and needs replacing

Expert:  Dave Nova replied 2 years ago.

When universal joints break, the driveshaft will fall down on one end. If the driveshaft is not hanging down, the u joint is not completely broken. The u joints can fail and have a good bit of play in them and make a clunk noise. If the u joint is worn, I would definitely address this first.
