Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

I am getting a vibration and high pitched squeal from what seems to be the drivetrain. Upon investigation I found a fluid leak from the transmission on the driver side axle. Can I replace the seal or does the transmission need to be rebuilt? How can I verify that my fluid level is sufficient?

The clutch was having a hard time going into gear.All of a sudden there was a high pitched squeal/scream coming from the transmission area.


that sounds like a throw out bearing failure-is there any adjustment at the slave cylinder-it may be holding the bearing against the clutch and causing the noise-this thread may help-http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/how-change-bleed-clutch-slave-cylinder-511531/- cheers Denny

2000 Impala high pitched squeal, not a pulley


It could be a vacuum leak on the inlet manifold or pipes Start engine and allow it to idle, spray some wd 40 or similar around the inlet manifold & vacuum pipes, if you notice a change in engine speed when you spray you will have found the area of the leak

I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler that has a high pitch SQUEALING sound when I release the accelerator. Any ideas what's causing it or how to fix it?.


I know i have the same problem, and i also noticed than when i open the Hood the whistle just stops, so i figure out it must be some air cycling in or out osmewhere, I found out my air intake connected to throttle body was misplaced a weird gap was left open allowing air to whistle. u might wanna check there

It still could be the throw-out bearing. When going bad, they have a high pitched whine or whistling, and if bad enough, could imitate a vibrating sensation. IDK, I would have a mechanic there listen to it.

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

Vibration


your highway acceleration problem could be a coil problem. Not sure if that year of chev has coil packs or not but experienced same thing with ford 5.4L. went through 3 coil packs and did the same thing each time before biting the dust. Transmission seems to be sticking on the 1to2 upshift and could be a sticking solenoid in the valve body of the tranny. If the shifting problem persists then the tranny deffinately has to be rebuilt. It's made it quite far if tha is the original tranny, you cant expect too much life out of it if it has been worked hard. I highly doubt a fluid change would help at all. Or if you want, you can buy a can of new truck from GM for about 25 to 35 thousand bucks! Typically works great!

High pitched noise, engine shuts off at idle


You need fluid!! The high pitched noise yu hear is air in the hydraulic sections of the transmission. Top up the fluid then find out where the leak is
Good Luck

Vibration in drivetrain


You actually answered your own question. Your transmission is slipping. The reason that it's vibrating is that it isn't downshifting to 1st gear to start. It sounds like it's either in 2nd or 3rd. The leak may have a lot to with it. I'm afraid you need to find your nearest transmission repair shop ASAP.
