Here's a noise I haven't heard before!?
Rode my '01 LT from South Bend to Covington, KY over the weekend to visit my neice and her family. While enroute I noticed a noise while pulling away from stoplights.
We're all familiar with the little clunking sound our abs units make when we first start our LT's and pull away from a stop. Well, this sounded a lot like that clunk...maybe a little louder and happened only while pulling away from a stop or slow roll...but not only from the first pull-away after a startup, but subsequent motor-runnin' pull-aways as well.
Today coming back, it didn't do it even once. Everything was back to normal. At no time during the noises did my abs lights flash. My brakes seem to be working fine.
Any ideas anyone? Could it be something amiss with my abs unit?
I'm leaving this Saturday for a leisurely ride to the International in Vermont, so this ISN'T the time for mechanical failures. Since my LT is an '01 without the power brakes...if my abs unit comes up bad, will my brakes still function OK (minus the abs feature, of course)?
So many questions...so little time!!!
