GM: Squeaking Noise From The Vehicle Underbody

Some customers may comment that a squeaking noise can be heard from under the vehicle while driving at low speeds.

Model

2015-2019 Cadillac Escalade 2015-2019 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe 2015-2019 GMC Yukon

CONDITION

Some customers may comment that a squeaking noise can be heard from under the vehicle while driving at low speeds.

CAUSE

This condition may be caused by the parking brake cables rubbing against each other.

CORRECTION

Figure 1: Placement of the tape to prevent squeaking.

Ensure that the tape extends at least 25 mm (1 ̋) above and below the rubbing point at the parking cable bracket. Using Woven Polyester Electrical Tape (PET), locate both of the brake cables near the parking brake cable bracket (1) and apply tape (2) to the cables ensuring that the tape is applied in a double layer extending along the cable as shown in Figure 1.

Spark Plug Replacement

Here are some tips to follow when replacing a spark plug.

Every time a spark plug fires, the spark burns a few molecules of metal off the plug’s electrodes. Over time, this eats away the electrodes and rounds off their sharp edges. The erosion gradually increases the gap between the electrodes, which, in turn, increases the firing voltage required to generate a spark. Eventually, the point is reached where the ignition system fails to produce enough voltage and the plug misfires.
