Noise in reverse

My truck makes a squeaking noise in reverse. While backing up I put the truck in neutral and the squeaking stops. Any solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it a four wheel drive? Do you have disc brakes or drum brakes in the rear? When you put it in reverse, backup and then coast with it in neutral, does it make any noise? I don't think it's in the transmission, more like u-joints or maybe brakes.

Sounds like a brake issue but paul is right it could also be the u-joints I suggest taking a look at the brakes first though also is the noise coming from the rear or front of the vehicle?

it is likely one of the pullies failing. the most likely one is the tensioner pulley. only way to fix that is to replace it. also examine the front of your water pump. if there is any fluid "weeping" from the casting hole(s) at the front that would likely be your culprit

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

2004 jeep grand Cherokee limited 4.0 squeak from transmission when first engaged in reverse. I have verified this with a mechanics stethoscope, the warmer it gets the quieter it gets, sound is louder


great but no transmission stated.
a/t
42RE? or 45RFE?
check bolts on flex plate? (TC flex plate to fly juncture)
seem like a torque reaction , caused squeak, ( i cant hear it so...)
the mounts, spray them all with silicon spray, try that first before
a new $2-3000 trans..
U-joints? spray them next, if now gone ,bingo>
keep in mind noise can telegraph. that means
noise can travel far , from origin. fooling any one with a stethoscope.

Possible Tranny problem...


I am sorry to have to tell you this but it sounds to me like your transmission is shot and will need a rebuild. If you can get it to a transmission shop they will tell you 100% what wrong with it. .

2000 subaru outback/ clunk when i put it in reverse


Turn off engine . get the vehicle on level ground. try to move driveshaft back an forth or,by rocking in twist motion,,, try to hear a knock,,,this would indicate a worn universal joint.either front or back, if you are good enough to discern which one is making the klunk, change both to be on the safe side. think they may be about 20 dol apiece.
