    Hi I have a problem. After I start my '87 GMC Jimmy, 6.2L Diesel, I start to hear a continious squeak, squeak, squeak while driving at low speeds. I think that it continues to occur at faster speeds but I can't hear it because the diesel is soo loud. However, I did find out that it stops when I apply the brakes. I don't know much about automobiles so any advice/suggestions would be a great help.

    Maybe you have a warped rotor or two... pull 'em and get em turned, or replace them. Bet that solves your problem! Good luck!

    sounds like the brakes need to be replaced...most have an indicator on them to sqeal when they wear down...pull the wheel off and check them.
    When you apply the brakes the pressure makes them stop vibrating..if you go to your local parts store they can show you and explain better. Most likely new pads and have the rotors turned.
