Shuttering or vibration when accelerating from stop or low speed. now makes clicking/slight clanking noise at low speeds


cv joints are what normally make that clicking m noise at low speeds ,more prevalent when turning a corner
as to the other faults , run the fault codes as it sounds like a random misfire and may be fuel pressure or injector related

Accelleration noises of the magnitude you descibe makes me think the engines crank shaft bearings have gone. Has the oil pressure light come on recently and what's the oil level like.
Without being there to hear it, it's very difficult to diagnose. You should detect noises and rattle if you rev it when in neutral if it is the engine. If the engine is smooth in neutral and the oil is good you may have a bad diff or cv joint

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

When accelerating the truck vibrates and feels like tires are rubbing on fender well or something


It might be the universal joints in the driveshaft are worn out or busted. Or something might be wrong in the rear end or transfer case if its a 4x4.
