Jul 14, 2006 (1:46 pm)
I have a 2005 Sierra 2500HD. It has been making this whistling teapot type noise comming from the engine area. You can only hear it when the vehicle is in any of the drive postions. If I put it in park neutral or reverse, they noise goes away. It also seems to get louder as it idles and the HD transmission gets hotter. Anyone have any solutions or idea of what it might be? Thanks.

Is this truck worth looking at, considering long term ownership? I have a 1997 Sierra 1500 and the repairs have gone through the roof!!!

I had a friend once that was told his tranny needed replaced and the problem was the catalic converter (sp) He didn't have any power and tranny was running hot.

In an effort to make things a bit easier to research, we're adding more focused discussions for the Silverado/Sierra so that they don't get lost in one general discussion.
If you click on the main Silverado & Sierra Group, you will see a bunch of new discussions broken down by specific sections of the truck. We'd like you to start posting your problems under those new discussions, and hopefully you can get faster respoinses by those who may be more knowledgeable about those specific areas.

I have a 2003 GMC 1500 Z-71 and at 60,000 miles my speedometer did the exact same thing and then finally froze up pegged at it's max. It cost me $1,100 for the dealership to replace the entire instrument cluster. Now a friend of mines 2004 GMC Envoy is doing the same thing at 55,000 miles. Is it too much to expect the speedometer to to work? Let's just say neither of us are happy campers.

I was having problems with my 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 with the 5.3 engine. At times the engine would not accelerate past 1800 rpm's, the engine had poor performance, and the transmission was slipping. I recently had my truck to a GM garage, and after some research, the problems appear to have been solved. General Motors has a technical service bulletin out concerning aftermarket oil charged air filters, such as K&N. If too much oil is put onto the filter when it is recharged, some oil can transfer to the Mass Air Flow Sensor, and cause it not to work properly. Hard to believe, but true. The bulletin describes everything, including transmission slippage. A new MAF Sensor ($215) and my truck runs perfectly again. The GM mechanic was surprised that a MAF Sensor could cause improper transmission shifts. At no time did the vehicle computer show any codes for these problems. While driving the vehicle with GM's Tech 2 plugged into the computer port, there were improper readings on the O2 sensors in the manifolds, but these cleared up after the new MAF sensor was installed. Hope this helps.
