GMC Sonoma tranny problem
 
Hi everyone, my buddy has a 1996 GMC Sonoma 4 cylinder, with a 5 speed manual transmission, and when you start up the truck and and drive it, the tranny makes a sound like when you shake up a bottle of water half empty. Anybody have a solution to this problem?
thanks

re tranny problem
 
Sounds like the pilot bearing might be bad, it will jump around and sound like a bad throw out bearing. I had a similar problem once in a nissan while going in reverse. Also sometimes the internal shifting parts vibrate loose and cause a similar noise. The only way to check is to pull the tranny out and spin the main pilot bearing by hand, if it makes noise, it is changeable through the front of the tranny. Hope this helps.

Does it make this noise in all gaers, or does it go away in 4th?
