Question about 2000 GMC New Sierra 1500

Squeaky drive shaft?

My truck (duramax) has recently started to make an increasing squeaky kind of noise from the rear and it fluctuates with speed so i assume its the driveshaft. Does that sound about right? Does any one know how much it costs to fix this problem typically?

Hello James,

If the engine revs up with no increase in speed, your clutch is slipping. Probably the reason the car was sold!

CAR MAKING A LOW MOAN NOISE AS IT SLOWS DOWN BETWEEN 50-40MILES


diff noises are a harmonic whine on drive (Acceleration or drive speed )or a growl on overdrive ( slowing down or coasting)
if you have a drive shaft to the rear diff it is possible that the rear shaft has not been assembled correctly and the out of phase of the joints will give indications that you describe
Take it to a drive shaft specialist shop for a diagnosis

Try spinning the rear wheels by hand and see if you can hear the noise, if not it may need to have a load on the wheels indicating a possible bearing, or could be a loose brake pad or backing plate. Also see if anything is touching the drive axels.

Yuck, this doesn't sound good at all. Stop using this truck until you find out where this noise is coming from.
Inspect the drive-shaft, look for faulty U-joints (you may need to drop the drive-shaft to see if one is binding), look at the gear-oil inside the drive-axle (is it full, does it have metal in it?), check for loose lug-nuts on all four wheels, check for cracks in the rims, and inspect rear E-brakes, They may be defective. Good luck, let me know how its going.

if it is the pinion bearing located near the drive shaft it could cause slack and thump the drive shaft. with the truck jacked up the driveshaft would be sloppy near the rear up and down.

I have a noise that sound like it is coming from my drive shaft but i am not positive its not quite a GRINDING NOISE ALMOST LIKE A HOLLOW RATTLE


check the fluid in the rear. We just replaced a rear on the same exact vehicle. Does it hum going down the road? Does the humming increase with speed? Also check the exhaust. Chrysler products are famous for their ratteling exhaust.

Hello. I can assist you. Rear end noise is typically from one of three things: a bad or poorly balanced rear tire, the differential, or a bad U joint.
