What does an automatic have to do with it?

You have 5 gears to go thru

Have a trans shop road test & lift check

Maybe solenoid problem

You have to resolve ALL Engine issues FIRST

SOURCE: Loud clicking noise coming from

sounds like the rockers or lifters have some play due to wear.you don`t say what rpm you are shifting at other than high rpm.by changing the oil you have increased the viscosity of the oil as its new and not dirty and thin and cold oil is thicker than warm oil.you might want to try a heavier oil to see if it helps.you may not get this noise out unless you replace components or adjustment of rockers if they are adjustable.if its not very bad you may have to live with it.

I was driving my 04 avalanche and it made a loud popping noise while driving, after that noise the drive didn't want to work, only the reverse and 1st and 2nd gear worked. Now when its in drive it...


The trans has to come out & apart to hopefully
find the issues

Noises aren't that common in trans failures

They fail often & by the millions every day from not
changing fluid every 3 years,but a loud noise is more like
worn or broken parts

How is the oil level in the engine? Have you actually checked that? Also, what kind of oil (and what weight) are you running in the engine, and how many miles are on the car? You may be running oil that is too thin for the amount of wear on the engine parts! oil leaks cause low oil levels!

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps
