Question about 1983 Chevrolet Silverado
I have a 1983 Chevy Silverado 6.2 litre diesel 3 speed automatic 4x4 3/4 ton. I recently started having some noise issues from around the flywheel area, looked under my truck and noticed my flywheel cover had been removed without my knowledge. The noise sounded almost like grinding metal, and thought maybe a rock got stuck in the flywheel. The noise continued for a day and then quit. A few days later it started again and stopped 3-4 days later. New problem has arisen. I can shift into reverse but I can't shift into D 2 1. As I'm new to owning a diesel aswell as an automatic, I'm a bit unfamiliar with them. Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated.
The noise might be from a loose bendix on the starter,
the bendix is a little gear in fron of the starter see if there is any visual point to see it nad make sure it keeps away from the flywheel if not have the starter repalced, this bendix have a spring to keep it away from the flywheel also with a flash ligh try to see the closes you can to the center of flywheel sometimes they get crack where they atached to the engine,
and on the shifting might be a bad transmission or the shifter has to be inspected for your mechanic
