I have a 2000 old body style Tahoe Z71; 5.7 with the automatic tranny. Recently, there has been a "Chirping" noise coming from, what seems to be, the front of the vehicle. I took it to a local mechanic and he stated that the u-joints were bad. Replaced the u-jpints and the problem still exists. From a dead stop, if I give it reasonable gas pedal, it "chrips" 2-4 times (kind of sounds like a faint horn beeping) and goes away once I get rolling. If I SLOWLY accel from a dead stop I can keep it from making that noise; it does not make the noise while I am moving and give it gas. The tranny was serviced to see if it would cure the problem and it did not; the mech stated that there was good pressure in the tranny @ 20 psi. When this thing "chirps" it almost feels as if something is slightly slipping during the acceleration even though it is quick and hardly noticeable. Any ideas? Torque converter going bad? Good u-joints bad? Thanks!
have the same problem?
