#1

97 Dodge 2500 van. Started a couple days ago. A breif scarping/grinding sound is produce when accelerating moderately from a stop. No sound is produced on easy “grandma” acceleration. The sound appears to come from a point below and between the driver and passengers seats trans Fluid level was a half quart low, filled no change.



My first assumtion is transmission problem, also thought front suspension, and wheel bearings. the front passenger wheel does sqeek over bumps. new shocks (6 mo)
