NHTSA Item Number: 10001111
Component: POWER TRAIN:AXLE ASSEMBLY
Summary: WHINE NOISE FROM REAR AXLE. *TT I just went through the same problem with my SS. It had 3000 miles on it and it was whinning while turning either left or right. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the entire rear axle. I am not the first person that I know to have this problem. I was told that there was a problem with some of the rear ends and I have had no further problems since having mine replaced. Thank you for using Fixya and good luck
Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.
Siunds more like a visous clutch fan. It's bolted tho the water pump hub and belt driven. Electric fans are attached or mounted against the radiator and are driven by an ekectric motor that is relay controlled. Electric is quieter, yet can be heard when they kick in. Only because it is at an idle or low speed.VC fans can be very noisey depending onwhar srage of engagement it's in. Both fans are negated by the ram air effect at speeds above 35 mph. If your fan is noisey throughout the acceleration and shift range and variable levels of noise are exoerienced in down sgifting, You have a viscous clutch fan.
