Then the light vibration and some noise between the speeds of 40-75 mph started to return in just 150 miles. Overall there has always been more driveline noise at full highway speed in 4wd of course. It sounds pretty much like i have real aggressive off road tires like a wha wha wha sound and I can kinda feel it on the pedals too. The guy at the dealership told me that I didnt have to flush, all I needed to do was drain the old and add the new. It had roughly 100k on it when it started and had 125k when I traded never really got worse but bugged the heck out of me.
Do they sell a pump anywhere that you can use? Antoher way to determine Which wheel bearing is bad is to drive and turn to the left, if the noise gets louder than it mens the rightside wheel bearung is bad. The reason I asked this is there was several others talking about some pin or clip that comes loose or breaks apart, but that was in the 96-97s. This is commonly caused by broken parts inside the transfer case that control this operation. I dont have a autozone or checkers where I'm at, just a Napa. Im sure thats one problem. Cost more labor to take the case down than to install a new pin.

This is easily fixed on those by dropping the rear driveshaft and then there are four bolts that hold the tailshaft area of the T-case on that can be pulled of to expose this clip area. Sounds like I have a pinion bearing or side bearings that are spun, so Im looking for a salvage rear end to throw in the old work truck. I then noticed a couple of pin holes on the case. I am calling the dealership parts counter for a new clip for my 97 Tahoe tomorrow.
It's pretty obvious to most vehicle owners that metal grinding together is never a good thing, so if you hear , contact a mechanic as soon as possible. The old stuff didn't look bad at all. I have a 600 mi. Would i have to rebuild as well? And if you still suspect a wheel bearing odds of both going bad at the same time. Just before placing any order for your replacement Avalanche transfer case its crucial that you look on the rear of the existing transfer case on an id label see illustration down below.
When from a broken seal, it reduces the volume of fluid that is currently working inside the transmission. I would take it to a transmission specialist right away and be sure to call the seller. What happened: Rear bearing came apart, chewed up the pump, the reluctor wheel rubbed on the speed sensor, and rear bushing was worn. The rear axles had grooves worn in them and the rear bearing failed. A recall should be issued for these vehicles.
My truck is making a similar noise, but when I put it on the jackstands I couldnt hear it. Grinding noises coming from underneath the vehicle When the output shaft seal breaks or wears out, it also can cause noises to appear from under the vehicle.

It just started happening, I tried parking it in the garage for the weekend, because it was extremely could in Anchorage the last 2 weeks while I was on vacation, but that didn't seem to help. Be carefull taking out that fill plug. No codes had code reader in glove box.
Dont hear it til i go below 25 mph, but that may be because of wind noise, but I dont feel it in the pedals the faster I go. There must be something going on in there. If there is no movement doesn't necesarily mean the bearings are okay, however if there is movement in bearing replace and drive again. The parking brake remained inoperative. If not replaced it can wear a hole in the case, cause sprockets to fail and much more.
Even then it just sounds like a light clicking. Skip the repair shop, our top-rated mechanics come to you. The noise would go away when the truck was on the lift and then come back when you put a load on it, but it resonates through that big hollow aluminum driveshaft and makes you think its coming from everywhere!

Accelerated gradually and drove down highway and when accelerator pedal was released, transfer case shifted into neutral, again, engine revving freely with transmission still in d.
The transfer case in the 98 is different I guess. The wheel hub bearings going bad. I have a service appt tomorrow morning to have it checked over, but didn't know if anyone would have a better idea what the problem is inside that I can tell the service technician so they aren't spending all day hunting for the answer. Kinda a long rrrrrrrr sound. The garage stated that a main bearing had broken apart sending metal throughout the rear axle and destroyed the drive system. I could not accelerate and had to turn on flashers and merge to safety lane on right. I did find that the hub bearings are my roaring noise though.
