transmission clunk... a couple of questions.

transmission clunk... a couple of questions.

Postby johnshop [OP] » Jun 06 2014, 5:46am

So no surprise by the fact that I have the all too famous transmission clunk when conning to a stop, or accelerating, or accelerating after a not complete stop (traffic, etc)

Is annoying as hell and maybe damaging in the long run? Anyway, since I have a 4x4 I know I can't do the greasing trick. I also read that the yoke in the 4x4 is lubricated by the transfer case fluid? If so, would flushing and replacing the fluid maybe help with it? On in the worst case, how hard would be to replace the slip yoke myself? Would it be too hard for a normal driveway mechanic? I am a mere 3k for the end of my warranty and the dealer most likelly would deem it normal or that they can't replicate the problem and be 115 out of pocket that I could put towards actually fixing the Damn thing. .... So I wanna see if I can get some guidance on what to do next. Thanks a lot in advance :)

What year is your truck? I may be mistaken but I think the dealer has to replace the yolk with the nickel one. I know it's a tsb.

I have this exact same issue with my 2014 Silverado,.. the trans operates just fine, but Im worried the problem might get worse or lead to other things? Were you able to get it resolved? If so, what was wrong?

As far as the transfer case lubricanting the slip yoke, I've never heard of that. If you do grease the yolk it only last about a week. Check your u joints. The other person is correct on the tsb up to 09. My 11 does it very very seldom. Once and a great while it clunks. My 06 on the other hand did it a lot. Almost like something was binding up. Also my 06 did have the nickel yoke and it still did it a lot. If I were you guys and your trucks are under warranty take it to your dealer.
