Tapping Noise from front end
 
Hello All-

New to the forum, glad to find this site. just picked up a 2012 JGC Overland V6 a couple of days ago. I noticed a tapping noise coming from the front end while slowing to a stop, continued while stopped and break pedal pressed, could still hear upon slow acceleration. It goes away after picking up speed. I also noticed tonight it did the same think while reversing slowly. I came across the TSB for 2011's that seem to address this(I think anyway). Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!
Rob

Are you driving a AWD vehicle? I get it after going in reverse for a few hundred feet. Then when going forward and commping to a slow stop you get this tapping it's more pronounced when you turn left. after a few miles of going forward it goes away. I'm suspecting something with the awd is getting mis aligned drivetrain/differential.

I have not had time to bring it into the dealer.

I took it in today as I had to go in and get my registration. Turns out it is the air intake valve, at least thats what they said. New one is on order, hopefully it does the trick.
