Grinding/rubbing noise after transmission bearing repair. made a popping noise while driving at normal speed. starting making banging noise. gets louder the faster you go. changes gears fine though.


an educated guess would be that the flex plate isn't on correctly , id get it back to repair place , if flex plate is it and it falls off or breaks then input shaft will break as well !!

Revolving, clanking noise when shifted into reverse or drive that disappears at road speed.


I would check the torque converter bolts to make sure they haven't backed out, may possibly be a cracked flex plate also

Clanking noise coming from Allison Transmission on a 2001 Chrevrolet Silverado 8.1 Liter engine


this does sound like theres a loose line tapping the engine/frame,during warm up the engine idles faster which could make it vibrate faster causing the the clanking or tapping noise,if this has started after trans fluid change,then check the lines running from the trani to radiator sometimes the service person might bang into something causing plastic clips that hold the lines to break,try getting under it and have someone start the truck and listen to see where it's coming from also hold the lines & see if the noise stops,the service guy could have unbolted something & never put the bolt back causing the clank ex.line may have a clip holding it thats bolted to the trani pan ?good luck

My pajero manual transmission 4WD has a clanking noise after you have driven it for a long time. when the transmission becomes hot the clanking noise appears. but when i step on the clutch the noise...


hi.
a transmission problem when hot, but ok when cold, would suggest that the oil in the gearbox is getting too thin when it heats up.

you say that the transmission has been pulled out but do you know if the oil was actually changed in it.
if the oil has not been changed, drain it and replace with the specified oil.
if it was changed recently, then i would consider using a thicker grade transmission oil instead.

changing gearbox oil, is normally a matter of removing the drain plug on the bottom to drain the old oil, and then refilling using the level plug on the side of the engine.

I am having a problem with a rattle noise while


try U joints or check all you heat shielding on your exhaust it might be harmonic. My 96 300zx rattles alot when i give it some gas and it sounds like tranny but the trans seems to be smooth for the most part and the clutch is relatively new. also check your trans mount. i've seen bolts get loose and it wont knock but it will rattle.

My 1999 jeep C started leaking fluid somthing broke underneath


Check all fluid levels, especially oil and transmission. You are probably bone dry. After topping off fluids, check to see what and where it is leaking from.

1999 Grand Am SE, weird noises, possible transmission problem???


I cannot say for sure but maybe a suggestion that it IS your transmission. The front wheel drive in these cars tend to cause problems for the transmission even at a young age. If you're driving around in the snow also you could be wearing out the gears prematurely. Sometimes a warning sign is the sound the gears make (humming and grinding) before one or more gears give out.
