SOURCE: 2000 GMC Jimmy Transmission Whine

I recently took my vehicle to a transmission shop and they had to rebuilt the transmission right through. I was recently told that the transmission is a common problem in these vehicles. Sad that GM can not fix or recall the transmisison since there is a problem.

SOURCE: my 99 gmc suburban won't start. the starter

Need more info -- but I will try to help you as much as i can. If the starter is not turning -- you will have to ck your cables from the battery to the engine. So you need to ck the positive or red cable to the starter, this one is the large wire on the starter soleniod. Ck it all the way to the starter, from the battery and any conections in between. It must have a good conection and be hot same as the battery voltage (+12.+dc). You will have to ck the ground or black cable conection to the frame and also the engine block. The battery grounds to both locations. You have to have a solid conection to turn the starter on both of thses wires. Ck these wires and the conections to the starter and the engine. Next problem could be a bad flywheel.  The flywhee has teeth on it like a gear- and the starter has teeth that mesh into these teeth to turn the engine over. The flywheel could be damaged in the area that it is in now at rest, so the quickest way to find out is to turn the engine over by hand. Using a ratchet with the right socket fitted (to the crankshaft end-- the largest pully center bolt) turn the enging 1/4 turn and get the ratchet out of the pully and try to start the engine, if it turns over and trys to start you have a bad flywheel my friend.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

I replaced my starter on my 94 ford ranger. my truck won't start, when it cranks, it makes a loud grinding noise. How can I fix this problem?


When buying starter motors it is essential that the starter pinion teeth are of the same pitch as the flywheel ring gear. Not all starters from the same make fit different engines because of this problem. However I would be checking that I had put the starter in the housing properly as any misalignment will cause your problem

1995 GMC Suburban Volt Gauge Dropped


Put a temporary voltmeter @ the battery....see what IT reads...If your charging system reads between 12.8 and 14.2 volts, with all of your acc's. on (headlites,wipers etc.) you don't need to drive into a boulder. Just get a new voltage gauge!!!!!!!

Check the wires on starter solenoid to make sure they are in the right spot. Sounds like the ignition wire terminal on the solenoid is getting constant power. I hope this helps!

1999 Chevy Suburban K1500 Transmission problems


Possible that it was damaged before and was over looked, or the transmission was not installed flush against the back of the engine block before the torque converter bolts were attached to the flexplate causing an abnormal wear and excessive stress causing it to break.

Electronic problem in 1996 Chevy Suburban 1500


srgy,
Have 96 burb and had similar issue. Mine was finicky about starting sometimes and thought it was the neutral safety switch. Turns out, it was the starter solenoid. Not positive yours is same issue, but it is worth checking.
