Ryan2828 replied to Ryan2828's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500So the dealership narrowed it down to the transfer case. After waiting a month for a transfer case a finally got it back and truck is much quieter in 4x4 unlike before. However i still have the noise but at faster intervals now. Used to be at 10 second intervals now it more constant. Put it in 4x4 and it goes away. Back to the dealership
Got a call this morning that the transfer case is on backorder! Not sure when i’ll get it back now. They did give me a 2018 silverado to drive though, could be worse i guess
Just got word from the dealership that they are putting a new transfer case in it. We will see.

Ryan2828 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Was thinking about putting one on on my truck but dont want to be annoyed by it on long hauls. I have a 6” lift and 35’s so the motor/trans is working more than a stock truck. I had one on my 2013 f150 with the 5.0 and i couldnt notice a power difference but the noise from it would get annoying from time to time. I live in western PA so i’m up and down hills all day long. I have a magnaflow exhaust and a tune from flashpaq in the truck now. If i knew i would feel the difference by putting one on i could deal with the noise. Wonder If anyone could feel i power gain by putting one on.
truck going back in shop next week when its cold. See what happens. Frustrating to say the least.
Not in 4wd auto, i never drive around with it in that setting. Funny thing is, when i hear the noise i put it in 4wd auto and take it back out and the noise goes away.
Ryan2828 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Wondering if anyone with a lifted 1500 is having any drivetrain problems. I bought a 2017 silverado new with a 6” lift done by dealer services international. I’m getting a noise from the front axle/differential area when its cold outside. Kind of like a growl that comes and goes in 2-3 second intervals around 40+ mph. Been going back and forth with dealership. They kept saying its tire noise. I just pulled the muds off and put a less aggressive tire on and now waiting for the temperature to get below 30 before i take it back to dealer. Just wondering if anyone else is having any kind of issues
Ryan2828 replied to Ryan2828's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Nice trucks, here is mine. tires are 325/60r20’s not 35/12.50r20’s. Not sure anybody could tell the difference anyway
Ryan2828 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Looking for a picture of a 1500 with a 6” lift and 35/12.50r20’s.
I would understand the differential being louder in 4wd auto. This is a whine/humming on drivers side in 2wd and putting in in 4wd auto makes it go away. Its opposite of what of what you think should happen
Ryan2828 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I got a gear noise in my front differential that i’ve been fighting with the dealership about. They say its the tires but i drive the truck everyday i know what the tires sound like. When i hear the noise i can put the truck in 4wd auto and it goes away. Take it out of 4wd and it doesn’t return. Thats not tire noise. Its temperature dependent, above 60 degrees doesn’t do it ever. Its in the teens now and the only way to get it to go away is switching to 4wd auto. Truck is 2017 silverado with 5.3. 10,000 miles on it. Going to another dealership and trying to have all the info i can get before i go.
Ryan2828 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 15002017 silverado 5.3 with 3:42 gears. So i’ve been having this issue with a humming noise that starts around 40 and is heard up to 75 mph. It literally showed up one day on the way to work on the highway. Truck had about 7,000 miles on it and the weather just turned cold. Sometimes its rythmic(4 seconds of noise then no noise). Sometimes its constant. Coming from front driverside. Can barely feel it in my feet when it occurs. The kicker is when i hear it i can put it into 4wd auto and the noise immediately goes away. If i drive for about 15 miles of highway the noise will also fade out if i dont do the 4wd auto trick. I’ve done some searching and saw a forum about this issue back in 2015 but cant really find anymore about it. The forum also said it was a front differential issue and guys were having them replaced after a lot of battling with gm. Most said the noise came back after 1000 miles of having the diff replaced. Any help is appreciated with this. I’m trying to get all the info i can before i do the service manager shuffle.
Going into 4wd auto immediately does away with the noise
