    So the engine is revving higher than usual, you take your foot off the gas, and the tach needle then drops to a more normal RPM? Is it like a delayed upshift---takes longer to shift than usual?

    You can still have codes stored in the TCM, or the TCM portion of the ECM. I'd certainly hook up a professional scan tool and look around.

    I have a 03 Redenzvous. I replaced the bearings & brakes and every since it has been squeaking (which is driving me nuts) it was only doing it when I back up now its squeaking as I drive down the road. Does anyone have any idea of what it could be?

    Did you do the replacement yourself or have it done at a garage?

    Does the squeak go away if you press the brake pedal and hold it while slowing down from a higher speed?

    It might be the pads themselves squeaking against the rotors, which I assume were machined or new ones put on.

    It might be a backing plate that's behind the rotors to protect from splash and dirt somewhat that is rubbing against the wheel because the backing plate is bent or out-of-place.

    If you're do it youself..., jack up each wheel and rotate to listen for the sound of something rubbing, whether it's the brake pads or a backing plate. If you can already tell from inside while driving that it's from a specific wheel, start with that one, of course.

    If a garage did the work, go back and tell them you're getting a noise that they need to inspect. They should be happy to fix it.

    I have a 2003 Buick Rendezvous that is making a rubbing noise coming from the rear end of the car it sounds like it's in the driver side rear tire and only makes the sound when I'm turning a sharp left

    I'm thinking its a wheel bearing. Determining where sound is from can be difficult, and noise when turning might make me thing front wheel.
