Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I was driving along today in 4wd when I heard a very loud clunk. The trk. seemed fine until i tried to go in reverse. I can shirt it into reverse, but it won't go.
It drives forward in all gears fine with no strange sounds.
the truck has been very well maintained all of the years that I've had it.
Thank you in advance for your help.
As far as not having reverse onthe truck anymore could be one obvious to many litlte things really..but I believe that your back axle probably has about $1200 in repairs coming.
In 4 wheel drive the front will pull the truck along but has nothing to do with going backwards.....I hope you understnad what I mean.
If the Pumpkin hasn't been maintained by checeking an chaging the lubricants you may have destroyed a gear, or gears that make the back axle do it's job.
The cheapest, but best thing to so is have a GM garage replace the bad gear/s, and seals as long as they have it apart.
Without actually hearing your vehicle, or feeling what it's doing. ... it's the best I can do for you.
