I have a 1998 Chevy S-10. theres 187,000 miles on it and I'm hearing a wierd grinding sound in the clutch/tranny area when I reach a higher RPM and mostly when I let off of the throttle. I'm starting to...

If the noise goes away when you touch the clutch pedal the clutch fork pivot ball is dry and should have been updated to recieve a grease fitting on the bell housing.

2003 PT Cruiser. Check engine light, code cheked at auto parts store indicates a transmission issue. knocking noise when running but is loader at idle. Added ATF and got better, but noise came back.

if the noise is definitely coming from the tranny, you need to stop driving or get it to a shop before the tranny is completely destroyed. a rebuild is cheaper than a new one.

The last 2 weeks when i would hit the gas the engine would rev up and then it would catch after about 2 seconds and go. Last night i heard a loud grinding noise, almost as if my muffler had fallen and was...

Your description sounds much like a problem my son had with his Jeep. If the transmission and engine have ever been separated, there is a good chance that two very hard to reach bolts which hold the tranny and engine together at the flange of the bell housing were never tightened properly. With even normal driving (his isn't), the other bolts can loosen and eventually the angle between the two assemblies becomes too steep to function properly and the input shaft to the transmission can fail.
With a good light, inspect the rear of the engine where it meets the bell housing to see if there is any visible crack between the two. If you can see anything like space there, you may have some expensive repairs ahead.

My 1994 Chevy silverado is spewing fluid when shifting operates fine haven't lost any gears and doesn't slip. What could be the cause

If the fluid is coming from the bell housing of the transmission, your front hydraulic pump seal has walked. The only fix for this is to remove and rebuild the transmission. This commonly happens around 200,000 miles.

Loud knocking coming from the bottom end and now loss of power sludge build up i have changed oil normal every 2500-3000 miles with synthetic and slick fifty.

the engine probably has a bad bearing in it.oil sludge can be caused by short trip driving,overheating,pluged crank case vent or pcv system not working.the power loss due to the computer retarding ignition timeing due to the knock sensor producing a signal from the engine knock.regardless an ongine ocerhaul or replacement is neede.
but first make sure that the bell housing bolts,torque converter bolts are all tight.
make sure the knock isnt from the catalytic converter
check for dents in the oil pan
check engine accessorys for noise such as water pump.power steering pump,alternator,a/c compressor.and all attachment bolts

Car will not go move in forward gears

You are going to need a Rebuild on this Tranny. Unless you know how to Rebuild a Tranny, I would have it done at a Tranny Shop. If you get the Clutches in the Wrong order During Rebuild it could Crack the Housing on the Tranny and cause a Bigger Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

2000 caravan lound noise on acceleration...tranny???

The noise you could be hearing is gear noise. The gears could be whining as they turn. It could be the gears on the planets/hubs of the transmission "guts" that would be to far gone it they are making noise to matter. The only fix is tear down and replacing parts. The only pin that comes out is the differential pin which doesn't usually make noise if it creeps out slowly. It will just rub it's way through the bell housing and you'll see a leak. When it comes out not'll know(BOOM!). Neither of which problems would effect steering or inherently be dangerous, just leave you stranded somewhere.

If you plan on fixing your tranny, stop driving and fix asap. The more you drive it, the more it will cost in parts. If you plan on buying a rebuild and using yours as a core, then by all means drive it until it quits if you like.

1999 Chevy Suburban K1500 Transmission problems

Possible that it was damaged before and was over looked, or the transmission was not installed flush against the back of the engine block before the torque converter bolts were attached to the flexplate causing an abnormal wear and excessive stress causing it to break.
