Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.
There has been a service bulletin for that type of concern. Here is what it states.
Bulletin No.: 01-07-30-042F
Date: February 05, 2010
Subject: Information on 2-3 Upshift or 3-2 Downshift Clunk Noise
Some vehicles may exhibit a clunk noise that can be heard on a 2-3 upshift or a 3-2 downshift.
During a 2-3 upshift, the 2-4 band is released and the 3-4 clutch is applied. The timing of this shift can cause a momentary torque reversal of the output shaft that results in a clunk noise. This same torque reversal can also occur on a 3-2 downshift when the 3-4 clutch is released and the 2-4 band applied.
This condition may be worse on a 4-wheel drive vehicle due to the additional tolerances in the transfer case.
This is a normal condition. No repairs should be attempted.
