Running gear and transmission Trouble
« on: February 23, 2008, 05:33:40 PM »
OK, a few issus to adress.. First When the truck is idling, the transmisson makes a noise like there are dry gears running(no oil), but the fluid level is good. Also when driving, something in the running gear is making an awful noise. it might be in the transmission, but sounds like its coming from the rear.  I just recently purchased the truck from someone who had not really taken care of it, and really did not own it( his parents did, well they still do, working that out as well). Think its worth the effort? Any thoughts will be appreciated.

does the noise go away when you take it out of gear and let off the clutch?  if so then your throwout bearing is gone, its the same way in my geo tracker really dry bearing sound when the clutch is pushed in but goes away if im in neutral and clutch out.

Ok, the noise is there anytime the clutch is engaged to the engine, even in neutral. Once the clutch is seperated from the engine, the noise goes away. I guess i could be the bearing.

my guess is #10 but that still requires dropping the tranny and you might as well do a clutch job

hmm I also noticed that the transmission still makes the noise when I am in gear, moving, even when the clutch is disengaged from the engine.  I think I will be getting a second-hand tranny, so ill just use that(after getting a new clutch). Any special instructions about pullng the transmission, besides what the shop manual has to say?

i have yet to actually pull the rocky tranny, but i have done a geo tracker and a mitsubishi mighty max, both 4x4\'s and the tranny\'s are combined with the tcase\'s as well just have a helper with you and take your time.

My rockys doing the same, but the noise seems to be coming from the transfer case, its bloody horrible, and seems to be worse in 3rd or 4th gear. Noise goes away if you put in the clutch. Any ideas?
Cheers guys

more than likely it is not actually coming from the t-case and it is coming from your 3rd/4th synchros and bearings being worn out, i would drain the fluid in the tranny and maybe put some royal purple fluid in it or something along those lines, maybe some power punch and see if the noise goes away

turned out, the seal on the main drive shaft yolk broke, and was leaking transmission fluid everywhere. A new yolk costs 179.19 USD, and has to be shipped to  US from Japan. My old one went too long without fluid, and got all warped from heat.

I think the absence of transmission fluid=gear damage.
