Sounds bad,pull the tranny dipstick,engine off and look at the fluid, if it's black or smells burnt the tranny has to come out for repair or replacement. I suspect the front pump.

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: 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..

I have 1997 GMC Suburban. It will crank but when you have it in gear it goes no where when you press the gas and makes a loud noise. Was told it might be the flywheel. I am not a mechanic and don't have...


If it's not a transmission problem, which is usually the case, I would check to make sure your drive shaft is still connected and that the u-joints are in good shape. If you can possibly see under the truck while someone presses the gas, you can see if the drive shaft is turning. If the drive shaft is spinning and its still not engaging, that loud noise may very well be the gears grinding/broke inside the back axle (rear differential). Just a few things to check, hope it helps in some way!

When i try to start the car it makes a funny sound and wont start it sounds like something is not catching


Good indication of a bad starter. Is it just clicking or is it a grinding ugly noise?. The second is definately the starter.

You Definately have a Gear Broken in the Transfer Case. It is not Easy to Rebuild. I would find a Tranny Shop and see if they could rebuild it for you. Tranny shops here in OKLAHOMA Do.
