Default ran into another problem

ok so now my truck is makin another wierd knock
but it almost sounds like the trans
it will not do it in park or neutral no matter how high it gets revved
and it only knocks when im slowing down wether it be coasting or braking
and it stops once the trans dropps to first
i looked at the trans fluid level to see and it was low so i added a half a quart of trans fluid cus it was all i had, it was till about a quart low at this point
it has a leak from the dipstick as well

bowhay....top it off and see if the noise goes away...could be a flywheel or it could be the front pump in the trans....sounds like it might be the pump....but wont know until it is topped off.

Check your torque convertor bolts.

yup...it will sound like the mains are hammering if they are loose.

But you could have hurt the bearings with that deal you went through before.

bowhay this may sound crazy, but you may want to check the alternator, i had a bearing go bad in one, it sounded like all the bad stuff... wrist pin bearings etc, just something to check, good luck.

take the belt off, or use a ( hose-a-scope) a peice garden hose from the ear aimed toward the alternator, i did both, only in reverse.

You can also use a long wooden handled screw driver with the metal end on the part in question and put your ear on the handle end. Works great.

I like the hose-a-scope deal.
