Ok, working on my battered and beaten 97 GT. I've already spent an arm and a leg putting her back together after the ex took out the telephone pole...but you have that. And wouldn't you know it, fix one thing, find another.
Running the factory 4r70w auto trans
. Got around 110k on it or so now. Getting a growl type noise out of the tail shaft. Not really any vibration, but a lot of noise. Which seems to get worse and worse the longer you drive it. When its cold its pretty much quiet. To me it sounds like a bearing going bad. But all the info I find on it says the drive shaft rides on a bushing and the actual bearing is inside the main body.
Anyone ever have the issue? I already plan to replace the trans
completely in the spring, just trying to get her through the winter without having to park it and keep driving the 95 which is already in bad need of suspension work.
Note - the trans
was not damaged in the crash, it was all body damage. This issue didn't show itself until months after it was back on the road.
