2000 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
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!
