I have a '01 Rodeo that has developed a very strange problem.
After coming to a stop, like at a red light, with my foot remaining on the
brake, when I release the brake, all is well, then as I apply throttle there
is an "bump". It feels like a small car bumped the rear bumper, then all is
Thought it might be loose suspension parts in the rear, but they all checked
Could this be the limited slip in the diff. malfunctioning? Feels like some
kind of "slack" being taken up in the rear end.
It happens about 5 out of 10 stops or a little less and is hard to reproduce
when you want too.
It's a 2wd, V6 auto, driven on the road only and has never been abused at
all (11,000 miles).
Time to take it in, but I would like to have some suggestions before I do
