car   Driveline Center Support Bearing problem of Dodge Ram 2500

The car involved is a 2004 Dodge 2500. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1D3KU28D44_. My wife and I bought a 2004 Dodge 2500 hemi quad cab pick-up last March. We took is back to the dealership every month last year except July which was the month we got married. The problem was a high pitched whine coming from what was later discovered to be the center bearing. This whine would start at 20 mph and would continue longer the colder is was. It would also continue into higher speeds the colder it was. The dealership tried many things to fix it including replacing the center bearing twice. Nothing worked for more than a day. In December one of the service managers said the center bearing was vibrating so hard,"I couldn't keep my hand on it. " he also reported that Dodge was aware of the problem and was not able to come up with a solution. At this time my wife and I proceeded to enforce the lemon law in December. We finally took delivery of an identical replacement truck about 3-4 weeks ago. Initially the truck ran fine. Then this last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday the new truck started making the exact same noise and the previous "lemon". Do you have any further information on this problem?. It was Mon., Dec. 13, 2004 when this driveline center support bearing issue happened.

car   Driveline Center Support Bearing problem of Ford F-150

The vehicle involved is a 2007 Ford F-150. On the above listed date, while driving in rush hour traffic in a busy metropolitan city my drive shaft center support bearing allowed the drive shaft of my 2007 Ford f150 to slip backwards completely detaching from the transmission. Luckily, my speed at that time was only 10-15mph. When calling the for dealership to inquire about replacing the part or advise the sales person was only interested in selling me an entire drive shaft and adamantly stated the part in which I was searching was not obtainable in no possible way. After searching for the exact part on Ford's parts website I did locate the individual part allowable for order online. My main concern at this time is there was no regard for the tremendous safety hazard of this particular device or piece of equipment, moreover there was more concern with obtaining a larger sell. After reading online I have found other issues with this exact device or parts pertaining to it's function but there does not seem to be any recall or investigation regarding these matters. I am only addressing this issue because of the definite safety risks that are at hand and to advise to other owners of this year make and model to have your vehicle inspected for this possible safety hazard. Also, to the Ford motor company, being a massive entity in the vehicle development and sales industry I was appalled to learn of no existing investigations in this matter. Please, for the safety of the families driving your product alone with my family as well, please take an initiative in further investigating this matter. Thank you, satisfied but dissatisfied customer. It was Friday, August 16, 2013 when this driveline center support bearing issue occurred.

car   Driveline Center Support Bearing problem of GMC Yukon

I purchased a 2001 GMC Yukon xl 06/15/01. In the early 40k mile period on my 2001 I started hearing a road noise that I thought was my new tires. I took my vehicle in to marlow-werner pontiac GMC in punta gorda, florida on 3/06/03 at 44,792 miles and told them I had some sort of tire noise if they could check out. They reported no problem. The noise kept getting louder during a 6 hour trip. Upon returning to town we took it into tuffy auto service center in port charlotte. We told them we thought it was a bearing noise and to please check it out. They had the knowledge to put it on the lift and put in gear and realized it was the rear end. We immediately took it to marlow-werner and told them what tuffy had said. They checked out the vehicle and told us the complete rear end needed to be redone. The bearings were scored and they had to replace all the rear differential bearings, pinion, and side bearings. I have had my vehicle serviced at the dealer every 3k miles as per manufacturer recommendations. I have never known a new vehicle with 40k miles have the rear end go out this way. I feel there is a manufacturer defect and they should have repaired it at no cost to me. They charged me 50% of the repair cost under the goodwill warranty. I feel this is a problem that needs to be checked into further and should have not happened with the low mileage and is a safety concern. I called GMC on 4/2/03 and spoke with darren christensen which is a consumer relations manager. The file number is #1-867-42264. He said he didn't know how I drove my vehicle and if I hadn't drove on it for so long the repair wouldn't have been so extensive. I was furious. I told him that I use my vehicle to take my two kids to school and on vacations and was not a hard driver. He told me he couldn't help me any further and that they would only cover the 50%. I just want this noted in case there are other consumers that are having the same problem with the rear pinion/bearings. This issue happened on April 1, 2003.

car   Driveline Center Support Bearing problem of GMC Sierra 3500

The car was a 2004 GMC Sierra 3500. Reference a GMC 2004 Sierra 3500 4 wheel drive pick up truck, 6. 6l diesel engine with 6 speed manual transmission. The molded rubber around the driveline center support carrier bearing (part # 12472424) dry rotted causing driveline vibration that, in turn caused the transfer case to fail. The vibration was slight and not constant, not indicating a major problem. The part in question is a non-serviceable part, preventive maintenance did not and would not prevent this failure. The transfer case was totally destroyed and was on the verge of total lock up which would have caused the rear wheels to lock up under normal driving conditions. The cost to fix this problem is over $3000 dollars to have the dealer do the repairs. Since I am a competent mechanic, I inspected and found this problem when I first noticed a slight vibration, most vehicle owners would have driven the truck until the wheels locked up possibly causing a life threatening crash. The part in question is without a doubt a defective part. It is made in china. While many parts coming from china today are of sufficient quality, chinese rubber is substandard and dry rots in about two years under most circumstances. It is unconscionable for gm to use substandard parts in such critical areas of their vehicles. This problem occurred on Oct. 11, 2007.

Toyota USA acknowledged problem, Toyota USA instructed dealer how to attempt to remedy problem. Dealer inspected, removed & road tested with vehicle in 4x4 (without rear drive shaft installed) and vibration / shudder gone 100%. Dealer reinstalled and problem returned. Toyota advised dealer to tell me (buyer) to go away until 5000 miles and live with the problem. Other complaint was transmission grinding and often reluctant to go into 1st gear. 2. At 500 miles, I returned to dealer with problem still present and I refuse to live with it. Dealer told me Toyota USA instructed dealer to not document my visit and not inspect my truck. 3. At 4914 miles, I brought truck brought to larger dealer, for 1st service + same complaints: shaking still present, transmission grinding and reluctant to engage gears as well as popped out of 1st gear (worsening?).
