Question about 2003 Cadillac Escalade
Vehicle has 70 k miles, all whell drive. The gears were replaced a year ago. Over the past 3 months we notice that when the vehicle speed is 35-40plus, and you take your foot off the gas, the front end whines. As soon as you give it gas again, the sound, while still faintly there is hardly noticable. he same shop who replaced the gears suggests that cadillac told him it was a normal sound to have the hum/whine from the front end. I do not recall hearing it until recently.
Is this normal????
The last time I had a hum coming out of the area of the differential it was an inside axle bearing going bad. In my case there were four bearings (one on each end of each axle). It was a Toyota. We changed one bearing after listening very carefully and guessed right. I don't know if Cadillac is built similar in this regard but I'm thinking it may be. It was a speed sensitive hum sound like you describe.

I have the same problem with my 03 escalade and was told that I need to change differential. Used is about $1100 so I'm still confused what to do. Can it be rebuilt??
