I have a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LT. I bought this truck brand new in Sept 2006. I have approximately 93K miles on the truck. I have just noticed a whining noise when I start to excelerate from a complete stop in first and second gear. As I increase speed, the noise goes away. I took the Suburban to my local service dealership and they suggested it could be the bearings. However, in order to confirm, I would have to pay $1250 to tear down the transmission. There would be no guarantee that the problem could be fixed. If it is not the bearings, the transmission would need to be replaced. Since I have owned the vehicle over 5 years (9/2011), the transmission would not be covered. They suggested a rebuilt transmission for $2700. Any ideas what is causing the whining noise so I can narrow down the problem without having to spend tons of money trying to find out? Thank you!
