Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500

Smooth Grinding noise From Under Vehicle

The noise I hear on a 98 C1500 sounds like it comes from the rear of the truck where the differential is. I cant hear the noise from outside the truck when someone else is driving it also the noise is affected by the up and down movement of the bed. we use it to haul a full size trailer so I believe this has an effect on it also. the noise is smooth like grinder on a knife and is not so subtle

Is the rear differential part of transmission on 98 sub forester


The rear differential is part of the transmission but you may have only had the gearbox replaced and not the rear differential serviced at the same time to see if anything was amiss

Noise coming from the rear of thr truck


Bad bearings probably. What bearings, is another story. You'll have to narrow down the area its coming from. Try to have some1 drive slowly down street while u listen from outside truck for where sound is coming from. I would guess wheel bearings but could also be bearings inside your differential or even driveshaft. Good luck, hope I could help.

IF YOU ARE ONLY HEARING WHEN TURNING YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SIDE GEARS OR SPIDER GEARS IN REAR DIFFERENTIAL THE ONLY TIME THEY COME IN TO PLAY IS WHEN TURNING BECAUSE IN A TURN THE INSIDE WHEEL TURNS AT A DIFFERENT SPEED THE THE OUTSIDE WHEEL ALSO COULD BE LIMITED SLIP AND MAY NEED ADDITIVE PUT IN

2002 dodge 1500 rear end making whining nosie


This could be one of several problems: If the noise increases with speed, and you are only hearing it from the rear differential and not the transmission, it could be the rear differential carrier bearings, or rear axle bearings going bad. If you are only hearing the noise upon acceleration or deceleration, the rear differential ring and/or pinion gears may be going bad and the rear differential will need an overhaul. You'll have to get the rear wheels off the ground and see if you can pinpoint the location of the noise with something such as a stethoscope. If it's coming from the rear differential, you'll need to pull the bolts and the cover to determine if the gears are still in good shape, or if there is any pitting. Same with the carrier bearings; if you see pitting/ discoloration, they'll need replacement. If the noise is coming from one side towards the end of the axle shaft near the wheel, it's most likely a axle bearing going bad, and you'll need to pull the wheels, remove the diff. cover to release the C clip which holds the rear axle in place at the differential, and pull the axle out. You also need a special tool with a slide hammer to remove the axle bearing and seal.

Front End Problems


first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.
