Chevrolet GMC Sonoma: , my name is***** own a 2002 GMC

Customer Question

Hi, my name is***** own a 2002 GMC Sonoma. When I made a 90 degree left turn, the right front seemed to dig in. In that it dipped very low and made the steering very difficult. It did the same when I backed out, but not as bad. I first thought it was transmission trouble, because the RPM dropped in half. But once the turn is complete, it ran fine. From a parking lot to a 70 mph highway. No pronounced vibrating or RPM loss. Light turns at 70 had no effect. (For more background, the truck had been vibrating more than normal, and was a bit louder.)

Hi Larry,
Is this a 4X4 because if it is, it sure sounds like the 4 wheel is engaged.
If it is still doing it, try making a full hard turn to the right and see if it does the same and let me know.

Larry you were right on. Turned on the truck and there was the 4 Hi button, just as you suggested. Disengaged the 4 Hi, and the problem was gone. I gave the truck a good driving, and nothing.
You were 100% correct.
Thank you!
I want to pass on my experience
and let JustAnswers know how you naild it!
Again, Thanks Larry. If I have another problem
I sure hope I get your help!

"MY" mechanic Larry was incredible. Once I got his ideas of what it might be, my truck was back up and running, in two minutes.
Would have been less, but, I had to find my keys. Larry is outstanding. I hope I never have car trouble again, but if I do, I hope I get Larry again.
