Is the trans fluid fluid full when checked in park engine running
Uh oh. The final drive in the tranny just went south. Disassembly is required
Sorry man. It sucks but the tranny has to come out
You didnt mention the noise was coming from the rear.
Pleas give me as much info that you can. I cant go off of."The engine run and the drive shafts seem to be spinning. The is a clunking noise when I put it back in pa r k
How did you confirm the shaft was turning?
Hope you didnt have it off the ground and assumed that becauise the wheels turned and you assumed the rear diff was engaged..
But was it under a load....probably not. In other words can you stabilize the shaft and see if it slips?
centrifical force can make the shaft turn but when a load is applied (like the diff gears kick in) if the rear diff is slipping you wont know unless a load is applied....follow me?
Do you know what rear diff this has..there are 3 options on this truck
Would the shaft increase rotation with engine rpm?
Thanks bud. The read diff definitely has something broken inside and will need to come out. Hard to say what exactly because there are a few things it can be. Its very expensive working in there and you might want to price out a good used rear end to be honest with you.
