It didn’t come on
Automotive Expert
light came in when it skid?Chris

Only check gauges came onNo other lightsOnce I turned right it skid a little and said check gauges
Automotive Expert
Okay, then the check gauges light usually indicates a gauge that is reading abnormal. I am thinking low oil pressure? Turning can cause the oil in the pan to slosh to the side and if low, oil pressure can drop for a few seconds and cause that check gauges light to come on. Check the oil level when you get a chance and let me know if it is low.Chris

I just recently changed the oil at gmc 5 days agoFresh oil
Automotive Expert
Gotcha, but double check the level. Make sure they added the proper amount. Just to be sure.Chris

Automotive Expert
I will keep an eye out for your reply.Chris

Oil level perfectWhat can be next ?I just put my parking break on it said check gauges too
Automotive Expert
Okay. Then we can rule that out. Do you think that you can recreate that right turn, and get it to act up again? If so, see if any of the gauges drop down, look abnormal, etc. Then let me know.Chris

I just tried as we speak nothing went downApologize for late response was taking care of son

Goodmorning let me know
Automotive Expert
Okay, well keep trying and just keep an eye on the gauges and see if you can see one act up. Chris

When I turn it be sounding like it’s gonna snap nowLeft or right jumpy feeling loud boom noise
Automotive Expert
Hmmm, let's get the vehicle up on a hoist at a shop you trust and do a thorough inspection of the suspension, steering and front axles. Then let me know if they see/find anything. Chris
