Question about 1988 Chevrolet C1500

2 Answers

High pitch noise.

88 chevy silverado 1/2 ton 4x4 350 TBI with 4 speed auto. The truck makes a high pitch noise at about 35 mph but stops if you let off the gas. Ive had the rear end rebuilt since the factor posi unit spider gears were destroyed (switched it with an alburn unit from randys ring and pinion). Changed the u joints also. I know its either the transfer case or transmission but im not sure which. The 4L60E was a GM replacement at 120,000 miles ago along with the motor. As far as I know the transfer case has never been serviced and I assume that is where the problem lies.

    Why would it go away when you take it out of gear when cruising if it was the belt?

  • dennday67 Sep 02, 2008

    Its not so much a high pitch noise as it is a howling noise like its rolling on boggers, it happened before and after i changed the tires. Its rolling on BFG all terrains 265/75/R16 that are new (less that 3k miles).

Did you check that the noise it is not just the serpentine belt slipping on the alternator pulley.
In this case you fix it by replacing the serpentine belt or putting in tension the pulley arm.
The transmission usually does not make high pitch noises, rather scratching noise when it is faulty,

Could be Transmission related. Have you checked the Fluid level?
Also have you changed anything recently like new tires? Its not uncommon for some tires like (Hankook for example) to make road noise?

Golf SE 1.8l 1781 cc auto, constant jerking. Have tried all possibles suggestions but still not fixed


try this to see if it gets any better,from stop.put into drive and let car accelerate without gas(do not touch gas pedal) around 30/35 mph is about right.STOP.then use 1/3rd gas(keep foot still)and do same(around 60/70 mph)STOP. then foot to floor and go to max legal speed.then back off to 1/3rd pedal.then stop.you have just reset computerised gearbox settings.(only use 1/3rd gas for about 250miles,and you will feel the difference(boring)but saves you a fortune in fuel costs.and if you still have problem put on diagnostic to check out.

Maybe a stretched transfer case chain.

The heater fan on my 98 chevy silverado stopped working... worked on high at first but made a high pitched noise and stopped all together


Run 12V directly to the motor and see if it will run, if it dosent than the motor is bad, if it does than the resister is bad, the resister makes the blower run and also regulates the speeds for the blower, but chanses are if it was making a high pitch squeel before it quit the motor went out.

I have a 2001 nissan pathfinder 4w. The OBD system-readiness status: Says catalytic converters, NOT READY; oxygen sensors, NOT READY; evaporative system, NOT READY. So did not pass inspection, I was told...


You have to re-set the obd via using Nissan's approved drive-cycle which is;

1. Start the engine when the engine coolant

temperature gauge needle points to C. Allow

the engine to idle until the gauge needle

points between the C and H (normal operating

temperature).

2. Accelerate the vehicle to 55 MPH (88

km/h), then quickly release the accelerator

pedal completely and keep it released for at

least 6 seconds.

3. Quickly depress the accelerator pedal for a

moment, then drive the vehicle at a speed

of 53 to 60 MPH (86 to 96 km/h) for at least

5 minutes.

4. Stop the vehicle.

5. Accelerate the vehicle to 35 MPH (55 km/h)

and maintain the speed for 20 seconds.

6. Repeat steps 4 through 5 at least 3 times.

7. Accelerate the vehicle to 55 MPH (88 km/h)

and maintain the speed for at least 3 minutes.

8. Stop the vehicle and turn the engine off.

9. Repeat steps 1 through 8 at least one more

time.

If step 1 through 7 is interrupted, repeat the

preceding step. Any safe driving mode is acceptable

between steps. Do not stop the engine

until step 7 is completed. If you cannot or

do not want to perform the driving pattern, a
NISSAN dealer can conduct it for you.

Vaccum hose diagram for 88 chevy truck. I put a 350 motor in my 88 chevy 1500 truck from a 95 suburban. I cant get the throttle body to stop idaling to high. I may need a vaccum line diagram for this motor...


it may not be a vacumn leak from a line,check the throttle shaft for movement,for example,i had a 89 1 ton 350 and my throttle shaft was moving around a lot and in order to keep it from idling high,i had to kick the throttle pedal.But also check the idle air control valve,which is the round sensor on the side of the throttle body.
