The top rattle could be from the shifter coming loose, basically becoming unbolted.

The bottom clicking/rattle could actually be a broken gear/clutch inside the tranny that is hitting when it rotates. You could pull the pan and see if you can see any material in it. But I seem to remember years ago something similar happening to an auto and the problem was internal.

You may want to talk with some local transmission shops to see if they have had an issues with this type of transmission in the past, just to give you an idea.
haven't checked the fluid. Not even sure how. LOL

I'm going to go with the little kid approach here but, it sounds like you've got rocks bouncing around. Like I said it's the stupid little kid approach, but I remember reading about a member whom had an irritating rattle and when he finally tore the car apart it turned out to be a rock bouncing around in some little corner of the frame somewhere.

But it's the clunk that bugs me most.

You should reall check the fluid level on the trans dipstick! Let's us know if it's low.






Hahahaha

How did vengeance let it go like that? Did they have any thoughts?

I learned when looking at it that there are no U Joint in front.

In fairness, the noise was only every once in a while then. And isn't easy to hear now.

I suggest you stop by the auto parts store and pick up a stethoescope. Something like this http://www.google.com/products/catal...=0CIQBEPICMAk#

Pete,

Should we start a poll on what the problem is...???

I'm personally thinking it's something to do with the driveshaft carrier bearing or u-joints at the center section...

Not being there it's really hard to tell though... Obviously it's hard even if you are there...

You sure all those quarters you had in your center console are accounted for?????

At least the "thump thump" sound (the deeper one) is happening consistantly. By that I mean I watched the vid and see it happens at the same time that bolt comes around, every time when it's turning.

You said you heard this every now and then and now it's pretty much constant?

The car was in neutral and you were spinning the wheels.

When you drive the car it matches vehicle speed ~ not engine speed.

With the consistant thump and the same place every time that sounds like a tooth missing somewhere. Kind of like where I put the arrow pointing to. It has to be something that spins constant so I wouldn't think that would be a gear (like behind the arrow) That tooth may have been hanging on by a shred of hope and finally gave. While it was hanging on you would hear the noise every now and then, but when it came off it created the constant thump noise. I think the metallic noise is that piece floating around in there just bouncing off of things.

I hope I'm wrong.

I think a new torque converter would fix it.


Seriously though... it's really hard to tell from a video. I can' tell just exactly where it's coming from. Did Vengeance say anything about it when they had your car?

I don't think a converter will fix the issue Em. I think the only *real* solution would be to get a ZL1.

While I won't rule anything out, I will say that the rattling/tumbling noise is coming from the very rear of the tranny and the clunking noise is coming from the same area.

When I put my head rearward to the denter of the drivshaft it's very obvious that I'm leaving the noise area to the front. There is 100% certainlty that the noise is coming from there. How far up toward the front of the tranny I can't exactly tell but not far. The clunk sounds like it's directly under the shifter but harder to pinpoint.

I need a lift.

I asked him to take a listen but it would come and go back then. In fact, when I picked up the car, I thought maybe they found and fixed it becaue I didnt' here it. It just didn't make any noise at that time. I never asked them to find it. Just listen to see if they could hear anything.

I hope not. If so, it's a big ass tooth. God I hope not. If so, however, I see a 4L80E in my future. Or similar. Russ has a pretty good set-up. But it would all depend on cost.

Don't know about the rattle. Freaky.

Ask one of the custom Driveshaft guys to give a listen.

I'd like to see the inside of the new driveshaft coupler design, wonder if it's similar to a CV joint, if so, it would make sense. If that's the case your driveshaft may be sloppy if you jerk it around.
It's at the tranny. When I listen back at the diff. there is no sound but what is coming from up front. The popping COULD be from the U Joint in the middle. It's harder to pinpoint BUT the rattling is 100% coming from the rear of the tranny area.

Man I hope you find it and it is an easy fix. Mine is an LS3 and my center splines twisted at the center slip joint, didn't make any noise but was a bitch to get the stocker out of the car. If it is the shaft I used the Drive shaft shop one piece aluminium and have had no problems with it.

It isn't your drive shaft or u-joint.... that loud and obvious of a noise, you would see that drive shft flopping around...... that is in your transmission somewhere....

You don't notice an shifting issues, or lurching? Did this noise happen to start after a burn out out

I picked up a set and used them. Pretty cool. But I couldn't pinpoint the sound. The driveshaft was moving and the tranny housing just had no sound in it. I'd swear the sound was coming from the driveshaft. I put the needle on the spinning shat but obviously the spinning of the shaft made it useless to hear.

Driving is smooth as silk. Never a miss or hicup. Can only hear the noise under the car. I believe I've narrowed the klunking noise to just above my X-Pipe on top of the heat sheild. Isn't there a U Joint up there between the two shafts?

Anyway, I'l have to wait and just have a good shop diagnose it. I don't want to be buying new bolts several times.
