Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

2005 LT Equinox 3.4L has transmission bearing noise on passenger side of transmission. Drivers side does not make noise. Noise is apparent35 mph and above. no increase in noise level with increase in speed. Already changed the intermediate shaft without any change in bearing noise. Since this model has not got a transmission dip stick, could it just be low on fluid? I understand there is a level check plug under the car in side of transmission case. Any thoughts?

    No signs of leaks, however, I have never been able to check the fluid level due to the lack of a transmission dipstick. Vehicle shifts what appears to be normal, but what is normal?

    What is the level of the fluid expected when I get the car up on a lift, and the plug is removed from the casing? How do you judge?

    Low fluid can cause noises. Have you noticed any leaks? Is it rough to shift throughout the driving range?

    Normal would mean that it rides smooth. When you accelerate fast, it shifts without jerking or missing a gear. That it doesn't hesitate for even a second to fall into the next gear. If the transmission fluid was low, you would feel some type of hesitation, maybe when you go down a steep hill or encline. If it doesn't, I doubt that is the problem. I should of asked this earlier, is it a standard or automatic?

There is a grinding noise from the front of the vehicle while driving. All new brakes. The wheel bearings have been checked and are fine.


Is it more like a vibration and humming, than grinding noise? If so it would be a bad engine or transmission mount. To check bearings while driving.. Find an empty parking lot, Make right and left turns/circles. Making a left, if the noise get loader, the right side bearing is bad. and vice versa. Do around 10 MPH while turning circles.

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

Humming noise from front left side


I hate to say it, but it sounds like something in the differential - transmission. The part about the noise and coasting fits a differential bearing noise. Making turns could put extra load on the bearings and gears in the transmission.

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps
