Warmed engine as normal, eased onto roadway, at first stop, trans put into park & starts making noise (Bad Noise/ sounds like failing bearing) Noise is (Whirring Intermitently yet consistent with RPM. Each time trans is put in either reverse or drive noise stops at once but trans slips a little before normal engagement. No further driving after returning home with about 2 miles total travel. No progression of noise or drive engagement during return. Possible Torque Converter?? I don't know & hope you do because my nephrew lives for his truck ** Note: recently rear differential failure (replaced ring/pinion/spiders, shafts/everything except axles) ( mechanic blames damage on rear end alignment after truck lowered 3 to 4 inches. Truck is cared for but not babied, however, have experience with several other trucks with same lowering kit w/o any differential failure but have read about possibility of damage because of torque twist.

the parking spaw inside trans came off, remove trans pan, drain fluid, get a new trans filter and fluid, and a repair manual for this vehicle, it will show you what to do, its easy fix, as long as nothing else is bad. parking spawl is visable , will probably be in pan when you remove it.
Try getting on an open road, get up to about 45 MPH or where ever the noise is loudest. Put the car in neutral and turn the engine off. You can roll in a straight line for a long time. Make sure nodody is around you. If the sound stops when the engine is off, then the noise is coming from the motor. If the sound is still there, its got to be coming from the tires. Id guess a wheel bearing.
If it's an automatic transmission, then it's best to check when the transmission is fully warmed up to operating temp. then while the engine is idling in PARK, pull the dipstick out and wipe off. Re-insert and pull out again. read the level as where ever the fluid stops making the dipstick wet. The transmission dipstick should be on the same side as the engine oil dipstick but further back. Some makes have "engine oil" and "trans" stamped on the dipstick handle.
Those metal flakes are normal wear and tear within the trans. You may try having it flushed (this may/may not work), The transmission may need a rebuild if you have serviced it already and is experiencing the same issues...hopefully this helps
If you use the Emergency brake more when you park a trailer, then both the clicking and the wheel bearing noise is due to the Emergency brake. The linings in the E brake are drum type and are inside the rear rotor. They will accumulate rust and make noise.
The rear pinion bearing in the differential can make a noise under load. This noise will go away if you are coasting in DRIVE, or put trans into NEUTRAL while moving. Pulling a load puts more strain on the bearing.
The heater problem can be several things. Usually an electric or vacuum "door" under the dash. A low water level after warmup. Or a bad thermostat will stick to begin with and then open too much causing a temperature drop. After the truck is warmed up, feel the heater hoses and see if they are both hot. If they are both hot, then its a "door" problem under the dash.
On that model the trans is monitored and controlled by the on board transmission control computer. If you had a problem it would default the trans into 2nd gear and not shift. You can check the fluid when it is hot.
Put it in neutral with the park brake on, there is a dip stick near the fire wall on the rt side of the engine, pull it out, wipe it clean with the engine running, reinsert and pull back out. It should be in the thatched area of the stick.
Make sure you check your power steering fluid too. That could be the wine you hear.
Hello and yes this is a major noise. I would check your oil now right before you ever start the oil again. This noise may have been your engine locking up from really low oil levels and excessive heat from a lot of driving. If this is fine contact me again and we will address more problems if their is more. Thank You.
I don't see you did anything wrong per your description.
With the engine off, check the level of the transmission oil, replace the dipstick, start the truck and recheck the fluid level, level should drop. This will indicate the front pump is working.
Next, with truck running, put transmission into any gear, then return to park position. Do you hear any ratcheting noise.
Its the parking pal in the transmission that's bad but let me ask something was the car in drive when this happen? if so then it's normal but if it was in park then it's not normal. The parking pal in the transmission is bad. Have a nice day
