When driving down the road should the transmission be in drive or overdrive?


Overdrive.

Unless you're towing something, or maybe if you're going up a hill and the transmission is 'hunting' for the proper gear. You could temporarily pop it out of OD until you get to the top of the hill.

Overdrive will allow the motor to spin more slowly, thus burning less gas.

1991 gmc jimmy grinding noise.


I'm not sure exactly what the noise could be except that most likely it's in the drivetrain somewhere between the tranny, transfer case, or the rear-differential (AKA: rear-diff, rear-end or third member). None of which would be cheap to repair.

I'm pretty sure the intermittency you're experiencing is because whatever is causing the noise, is only worn & not fully gone yet, but will be soon. Unfortunately, I wouldn't know how to further pinpoint this noise, maybe someone else could???

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...


Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

May be I have to make my problem clear. The car goes ok when I drive it on plain roads. But moment comes to up hilly roads car loses power and almost stall. it makes only very tardy slow move up hill.


not getting enough back pressure in the exhaust system. weak or lose of power can be caused by this. usually middle box. if you hit it and it rattles thats were your problem is. also can be piston rings falling under pressure.

Grinding noise....sounds like metal


Check the disk brake pads. At slower speeds you can hear them squeak because there is less wind and road noise. The other possibility could be a bad u joint at the ends of the axle half shafts on the front differential. Check both. I really doubt it is the transfer case. You transfer case is engaged all the time. The axle is locked and engaged when you flip the lever by a vacuum motor on the axle shaft on the differential.

I have a grinding/scraping noise when driving forward. It sounded like rear brakes, and I checked/replaced rear parking brake parts that were suspect. Also changed rear drive shaft ujoints after noise...


Good Evening, those noises can be annoying and sometimes hard to find. However it sounds like you have a front hub assembly going bad. Usually the noise goes away when you veer one direction or the other. I have heard some transfer case noises but they usually do not go away on turns. Check those front hub-wheel bearing assemblies and see what you come up with. Hope this points you in the right direction.

1996 suburban makes grinding noise in 2 wheel drive


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..

Sorry to tell you this really but there is not cheap fix. It needs a tranny shop and at minium will need a few gears and probably a clutch pack or too not too mention a complete cleaning and adjust service..AAMCO is reccomended
