I have a 2004 Chevy silverado 1500 four wheel drive when I come to a stop and release breaks it clunks what is causing this?


Not %100 sure, but it sounds like a loose brake caliper, or if equipped with rear drum brakes, it could be one or more of the many components involved with holding the brake shoes in place, and one more possibility of being a broken brake pad or shoe. Can you tell where it's coming form? The front, rear or possibly the center which would point more towards drive train issues....

What's a clunk followed by warning lights for VTM4, VSA, and check engine mean, followed by the vehicle accelerating very slowly and not seeming to shift out of first gear.


your vehicle went into limp mode to protect it self --when you turned it off what ever the clunk was reset itself and your check engine light is still storing the code ===your code should tell you what happened

I have clunk noises coming from the differential as the car is coming to a stop. There seems to be too much play in the unit. The transmission tail shaft and bushing have been replaced and the ring and...


NAW, sounds like you need the updated slip yoke and "special" spline lube, I would think your local dealer would have done that way before going into the diff. Or maybe they did and I didn't post it?
I've also found sway bar end links to cause a clunk but you will usally hear this when you are turning or going over a bump also, But once or twice I have found them to be the problem with stops or starts only!
If it's 4x4 then you could try and narrow it down by pulling the rear drive line and going for a short drive in 4 wheel drive and see if the noise is gone.

Rear End in a 2000 silverado moning whenever I turn a corner.


I would suggest a rear differential service. When the fluid breaks down in the rear it doesn't provide the proper lubrication for the rear and you'll hear the "moan". Don't forget to buy and add the limited slip(posi-trac) additive.

As far as the rear end noise, There was a TSB released on GMC light duty trucks that says "Some owners of light duty trucks equipped with automatic transmissions may comment that the vehicle exhibits a clunk noise when ******* between Park and Drive, Park and Reverse, or Drive and Reverse... Whenever there are two or more gears interactin with one another, there must be a certain amount of clearance between those gears in order for the gears to operate properly. This clearance of freeplay (also known as lash) can translate into a clunk noise whenever the gear is loaded and unloaded quickly, or whenever the direction of rotation is reversed." It goes onto say "...Whilse some owners may find the clunk objectionable, this will not adversely affect durability or performance."
