Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1999 Chevy Silverado with clunking/jerking in the back

This problem just recently happened. It sounds fine when I'm driving forward, but when I start turning the truck makes a clunking noise and jerks like I'm getting hit or running over something. I had somebody look while I was turning and they said that it looked like it was coming from the rear axle or drive shaft.

It sounds like your 4WD is still engaged and you need to have it serviced. It's common for the 4wd to get stuck in the on position with the button pushed to the 2wd mode. As you turn the front wheels are binding with the rear wheels. There is a vacuum switch on top if the transfer case on the drivers side that may have gone bad and needs to be replaced. You can pick it up at Auto Zone for $25.00 and $85.00 at the dealer, there is three vacuum hose attached to it that needs to be disconnected and then the switch can be un screwed from the transfer case like a spark plug.. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad to answer any question you may have.

1999 chevrolet silverado 1500 when i start it up it makes a clunk under the truck, it sounds like it comes near the transfer case or transmission. Also it is 4x4 and it is an automatic. Does anyone know...


If this is the only problem you notice, it sounds like universal joint going bad in the drive line. Put the gear selector in Drive from neutral and then back to neutral and then select reverse. Listen for the clunk when changing from drive to neutral and neutral to reverse. A bad universal joint will make a clunking sound when the drive line reverses direction because of the slop in the joint due to the bad needle bearings.

Most likely you have a bad drive axle, each drive axle has 2 universal joints and when they get worn they make a big clunk sound. Especially turning or going from forward to reverse.
