Question about 1990 Chevrolet C2500

1 Answer

Rear axle problem

I have a 1990 chevrolet 2500.......ext cab, 350 motor, automatic. 2 x 4 rear wheel drive.

here is the problem.............. ME !!!!!

I had made a trip to edmonton from williams lake, and I had noticed that a howling noise came from the driver side rear axle and gets louder whenever I hit the gas pedal while I am driving, and it also starts when the speed gets faster from 30km/h.

I am highly interested in receiving picture diagrams and specific instructions on the procedure for me to fix it myself. I can follow pictures a lot better than being explained with no pictures, for some reason.

I dare not take it to canadian tire, since they will only add more problems that have nothing to do with the rear axle, they seem to be great con artists when it comes to fixing vehjicles.

so........ is there someone in the world who may be able to help me fix my truck before the snow flies. if there is then here is my email address for someone to get back to me on this

shawnblackjackcarlson@hotmail.com

it would be nice to have heard from this, as it is going to get even more important as the days go by. I am very thankful for people to be helping me on this matter, have a great day, chow for now.

blackjack.

Your best bet is to go to a wrecker and replace the complete axel. If you start messing with the gears an so on, you could be walking til spring! This way you can be back on the road in days! Frankster016

4 wheel drive won't engage


Which do you have ?
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
The NV236 transfer case is an automatic transfer case with three drive ranges. Shifting from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive is done automatically when the transfer case shift control module receives wheel rotating slip information from the speed sensors. The transfer case shift control module then engages the transfer case motor/encoder to position the transfer case from rear to four wheel drive. When the transfer case shift control module receives information that the wheel rotation is the same on both axles, the transfer case shift control module sends position information to the motor/encoder to put the transfer case back into rear wheel drive. The three drive ranges are 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO. The 2HI position is for normal driving with the rear wheels pushing the vehicle. The 4HI, position is for driving through sand, snow, mud, gravel, or heavy rain at normal or slightly below normal speeds. The 4HI engages the front axle to allow for four wheel drive. The front axle is pulling the vehicle, and the rear axle is pushing the vehicle. The 4LO range is used for off road driving, heavy snow, deep mud, or shallow fording. The 4LO is similar to the 4HI except that the gearing in the transfer case is set for low speed and high torque. The NV236 is manufactured at Syracuse New York by New Venture Gear a division of New Process Gear for General Motors.

I have a 91 k1500 ext. cab 4x4 and my 4 wheel drive wont engage . what all could it be?


SOLINOID ON FRONT AXLE IS MOST COMMON PROBLEM. CHECK FOR POWER ON BLUE WIRE AT SOLINOID ON FRONT AXLE. KEY MUST BE ON WITH SHIFTER IN 4X4. CHECK FUSE FIRST I THINK IT IS THE SAME FUSE AS RADIO.

Check engine light on? Does it run normal driving it? Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check the gasket under the throttle body.

Change engine in different engine/350 fuel injection, try to find gas line to attach to switch with two tanks lines.


What you have is commonly known as a "dually" (because it has dual rear wheels) Essentially the truck is identical to others of that year except for the rear differential which has "floating" axles (likely a Dana unit). The best manual would be the original chevy shop manual...Otherwise try and find a chilton or motors manual for that year.
I don't quite understand what your question heading means...Are you considering swapping the engine?
