Another "what is this noise" question...
I have a 2WD 2000 crew cab dually with the six speed manual transmission.
When in first gear started off while making a turn the transmission is very loud. It will not make the noise when starting off in a straight line. It is not a grinding noise but you can hear the gears. It will also do it in second gear if I "short shift" it while still in the turn... As soon as I get the truck going straight or go to higher RPM the noise goes away
Also, when cruising I will get a clunk when I turn off the cruise control... The clunk sounds as if it is coming from the end of the transmission leading me to believe it is a worn u-joint.
A buddy of mine that has limited experience with PSD's suggested that the transmission noise may be caused by worn out or broken transmission mount.
Have any of you all experienced such noises?
If so, what was the cure?
I just want to get some ideas together before I tear into this thing.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions...
