Major drivetrain problem, my AWD is now FWD. Cost for parts to repair was $1600 plus, unable to rebuild the driveshaft due to it being a very non-standard design. My repair shop says he knows 3 other former AWD driving around as FWD...
U joint went out and dropped the drive shaft while driving down the highway @ 55 miles an hour causing the drive shaft to split the rear end in two. Chevy say's the drive train isn't under warranty anymore! Repairs are going to cost $3,700. No money!
Rearend ran dry on grease causing the gears to lock up and crack the housing, damaging the driveshaft and both rear axles.
Tried to isolate bearing noise in drive train. Appears to be in passenger side of transmission. 35mph or more showed bearing noise. Not CV joints, wheel bearing or intermediate shaft, the shaft was replaced and problem noise still there.
