Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Open Question

2001 Silverado Buzzing/grinding noise behind dash.

I have 2001 Silverado with an ANNOYING buzz/grind. It worse when it's cold on startup. It seems to be some type of vibration that happens under load. It's an automatic. In 1st, under normal driving, the "grinding" is from about 800 to 1000 rpm, in 2nd and 3rd it happens when the tranny shifts up or down and the rpm is in that range.

If I'm stopped and in neutral, it makes the noise, but much softer. In gear with the brake engaged, it's loudest at about 900 rpm.

Any ideas what this could be. My mechnic said it could be just about anything which didn't help much.

Thanks for your help!

SOURCE: 1996 suburban makes grinding noise in 2 wheel drive

sounds like the clip on the rear output shaft its probably broke. do this by removing the rear driveshaft, and the tail of the transfer case, there are 4 bolts holding it in place. then grab the output shaft and see if it has any front to back movement. if so pull it all the way to the rear and you should see a groove at the front part of the shaft where the clip goes. Then you should find the pieces fo the clip in the tail housing. One person said he found the replacement clip at a local tranny shop. I am calling the dealership parts counter for a new clip for my 97 Tahoe tomorrow. Hope this helps..

You have a 4L60E whick is controled by your ECM. It sounds like you need and new transmission, the sun gear in it has failed and is the weak point on this transmission. 
When you get a new transmission have them to a corvette servo upgrade. The part is only $45.00 and the shop should know about the upgrade. It will make your truck shift a lot more firmer but last longer.

Good luck and hope this helps

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

What's causing my 2001 hyundai accent to be noisy when moving on the driver side front wheel?


It could be the disc brake pads telling you they need to be replaced.

Sounds to me like you have a bad front hub. The good news is that the wheel speed sensors are part of the wheel hubs. The tricky part can be to figure out which side is bad. If the noise is worse when turning right, it is most likely the left side that is bad. You could try jacking up each corner and shaking the wheels to see if there is any play.

Grinding noise from behind the dash. The noise sounds like it is related to the tachometer. I have a 2004 Suburban with the Stabilitrak system where it is in All wheel drive all the time (no 2H only All...


No idea what the problem is either. I have a 04' LT that started doing it as well. Doesnt matter hot or cold, does it randomly. Usually when I come to a fast stop then resume speed its sounds like grinding in the dash and while hitting the gas I get NO acceleration, let off for a second then its good. Its happening more often now than before. Does anyone have any ideas?

Buzz noise behind dashboard 2001 GS300 LEXUS


The buzz noise is probably coming from the airflow controls turned off but being stuck in a particular mode such as vents and feet mode or winshield and feet mode, creating a buzzing noise while it is turned off. To stop the buzzing noise turn off the aircondition / heat by pressing the off button, next press the mode button for the fan controls to make the picture point to face only not feet or winshield, this should stop the noise.

with engine running?? assuming noise is under hood here is one possible cause. sometimes pcv valve will make a buzzing noise as the little ball in there flaps around when spring gets weak. locate your pcv valve and feel it if this is noise you will feel the hose vibrating and if so replace valve

well that's where your ac blower motor is. you may have something wedged in it smacking the blades on the wheel or the bearings in the blower motor could be going out but that would making more of a hum or a grinding noise.

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
