99 chevy silverado making grinding noises in reverse

\015 The truck makes some minor clunking noises in the front end when in drive, but yesterday when I went to back up that noise turned into a grinding noise and it felt like my 4 wheel drive low was locked in and the wheels started grabing. What may be some possibilities?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Noises I had replaced the right front wheel bearing on my truck. It is a 2000 Chevy Silverado 4X4 2500 series. The problem is intermittent and it is usually at higher speeds, 80kph and above. The noise is like a rubbing grinding noise and like I said it doesn't happen all the time.

I have a 2000 Frontier V6 Auto Crew 4x4 with an odd 4x4 issue. When using reverse, the transmission makes a quiet popping noise both when turning or going straight back.

My 2004 Chevy Trailblazer is making a bizaar noise when I start it up. It's starts as a high pitch squeal then drops to a lower pitch squeal then ends in kind of a grind. Thought it was a slipping belt but there's only one belt and it's fine. It runs fine and the noise dies away after the engine settles. It only makes the noise on start up. If you cut off the engine before it settles down - the noise continues, so it doesn't stop with the engine. Seems to be coming from inside the engine itself.
