1999 Chevy Suburban K1500 Transmission problems

In June I took my truck to get the tranny fixed because it would shake when I would take off and it didn't want to go backwards without alot of loud noise. The shop I went to rebuilt the tranny, little things just didn't seam right like rolling down the driveway backwards it would whine and sometimes when I would start the truck it would make a loud bang and shake but it would start everytime. I haven't driven it much untill the last 2 weeks when I put my other burb up for the winter. Now I'm driving this one and yesterday it started making a loud knocking noise in the front of the bell housing, so today I take it to the shop and they say that its the flywheel. Do you think that it is something that just went bad in the last 700 miles that I put on or it was something that they did when they rebuilt my tranny.

Thank you for any help!!

Possible that it was damaged before and was over looked, or the transmission was not installed flush against the back of the engine block before the torque converter bolts were attached to the flexplate causing an abnormal wear and excessive stress causing it to break.

Check the sensors on the transmission. May just be corrosion on the sensors or it may be a faulty sensor. Also, the torque converter bearing may have went bad due to the running it on low transmission fluid.

1999 chevy suburban k1500 4wd eletrical problems?


As far as the speedometer not working and the transmission not shifting; I'd check the speed sensor connection on the tail of the transmission and follow the wiring to see if it is cut somewhere. If the PCM doesn't get a signal from the speed sensor, the transmission won't shift. Did the auto have wires get chewed by rats after sitting?

I have a 1997 chevy k1500 and i was wondering if it would run if i gutted the catalytic converter or took it completley off?


yes, it should run, but you'll have an engine light on because your downstream O2 sensor will think there's a miss fire.

Is transmission cooler located inside of radiator on 99 chevy suburban? (OEM) car froze at -3 temp fear we have antifreeze in trany fluid, fluid resivore is to full. also water leaking out under car...


I would not worry about antifreeze in the transmission. The pressure in the tranny cooler will not let any coolant get in. If it was leaking you would have tranny fluid in the radiator. You may have some freeze plugs that have pushed out or a cracked block or some coolant passage above the transmission. Get it pressure checked
