1999 Suzuki Vitara JS 4 Cyl 2.0L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Before when I took my foot off the accelerator and coasted the little car would make a squealing sound.

Now the car has stopped squealing when coasting and now chirps only when I back up.

Is your vehicle a FR (front engine, rear wheel drive)? If it is try to check the condition of your propeller shaft and its mounting bolts in the flange (connected in your differential).

Thanks yboy82. It was the u-joint as it broke the other day. Cost of repair about $300.00. I however have another problem that is aslo a critical issue as that is the EGR valve on the little vitara. The estimated cost of repair is $700.00 as I may need a garage mechanic to assist in keeping the overall cost down in labor hours. If you have any better suggestions let me know.
