Question about 2002 Chevrolet Suburban
My 99 4wd suburban is making a noise when i release the gas pedal...sounds like a grinding noise from the transfer case. transmission shop told me that all is ok....have catalytic converter checked. any ideas?
SOURCE: vibration at 45 mph.
first, if the milage is high it could be a cv halfshaft even if the boots are not split. if the tires are new and no rims are bent, make sure there is no fix -a- flat in the tires, (liquid will not balance) and cause a severe vibration. i would suggest you take it back to your shop and have them put it on a lift, raise up the front wheels under the outer part of the lower control arm where the front is not hanging down too far and start the vehicle. run it up to 45mph to 60mph and have them feel in the drivetrain for vibrations and shakes.if it is felt with the car this way the vibration is in the drivtrain. inner cv's or in the transmission. thanks and let me know what you find out.

there is a cable running from handle to brake assembly it is probably broke there is a release lever under there on brake about a one inch lever hold down on brake and move this and let up on pedal.

you're having the same problem i had with my 99 isuzu rodeo 2 wd 3.2 i paid a muffler guy over $600 to replace those catalytic converters, if you're good at welding you could do the welding yourself after buying the catalytics, basiclly i seen them just cut them off and welded them back on

it's possible you might need to just change the trans case fluid.... it's a pretty simple task, i usually do all the small minor work first before i take it to a dealer to fix.... if they said you need a new trans case, but didn't tell you why, more than likely there might be something you could do yourself to make it better... those service men have been working around vehicles long enough, they should be able to tell you exactly what's wrong!
i would also do a tranny fluid change to... some of the noise could be coming from there too -- when you change either fluid, add a little lucas transmission fluid stabilizer, it helps alot with seals and makes the fluid stick to the gears better...

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..
