The only thing that I know of that will make that noise is the belts . get a can of belt dressing and spray the belt(with engine off) and the noise will go away. check the belt to see if it is tight and is in good condition.If your engine has just one belt the belt dressing should stop that noise but make sure the belt is in good condition .

The trucks seems to 'shimmy' after shifting into 4th gear but only when gas is applied.


This is a common problem when your Universal Joint's are going back on your Drive Shaft...

Recommend replacing them with SPICER..... A little more money but worth it...

RPM goes up then down when slowing down


my 07 Tc does this also not sure why, but it helps me brake, could be that it is coming out of passing gear, and going back to last gear

Rpm are very high and wont shift in to gear unless i let go of the gas pedal


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST. This guide is meant for problems that do not show up as PCM codes (like shift A&B solenoid failures, for example)
1-2 shift does not happen at WOT until you let off the gas: Best case: try replacing the TPS. Middle case: leak in the 2nd gear apply circuit (servo assembly or 1-2 accumulator). Doublecheck by using the pressure gauge and watch for a big drop when the PCM commands 2nd gear. Worst case: poor line pressure rise (see below)
1-2 shift is delayed and harsh, may not shift into OD: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

You need to have the vechicle scanned for codes.I believe you are going to limp in mode on the computer.Have them check all codes,transmmission and body along with engine.

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.

Shifts hard from park to drive and engine moves


That would be the transmission and motor mounts. Take it to a auto repair facility.
