    Why would the RPM change rapidly up and down between 30mph and 60mph?
    When driving between 30-60 mph the RPM needle will go up and down and the car will have jerking movements a few times before it stops. Could this be a speed sensor problem?

    Why does my car jerk while accelerating.
    My trailblazer jerks lightly kinda like a skip when accelerating but doesn't do it when gas it pushed down harder. Only when lightly gassing arround 50-60 mph. Doesn't do it when I let off gas or accelerate harder just the inbetween. What could this be?

      Plug in a code reader and read fault codes. Checking for codes cannot be skipped as it is the first thing that should be done.

      If the transmission is difficult to put in any of the gears (not just first gear) with clutch pedal depressed but it is able to easily engage in the gears with the engine not running, then your cause is the clutch hydraulic system has either a bad slave cylinder or a bad clutch master cylinder or the system has to be bled.

    Loud nocking in rear end, when coasting and then accelerating
    My 2007 GMC made this same noise and they would take the drive shaft out and put grease on the yoke. Chevrolet dealer said this would not be required on my 2011 chev. Now the last few weeks there is a popping noise when the transmission shifts about 30 to 40 miles ...

      It does that to tell you that your traction control senses slip on one of the wheels and is transferring some of the spin to the other wheel(s). May be related to one or more wheel speed sensors.

    What causes the backlash in the drive train when you let off the gas, then quickly apply gas equals a clunk.
    This problem is similar to the rear wheel drive noise in the differential between the ring and pinion gears that have worn, resulting in a clunk when you give just a little gas. Chevy dealer says "backlash" is in spec but has not identified just where the backlash ...

      It depends. I would have to drive it and see if I agree that this "clunk" is an abnormality and if it is as you say and i agree that it is wrong to be there, then I would suspect a loose part in the drivetrain anyplace. The vehicle is almost new so normal wear and tear does not apply here. Engine mount, transaxle mount, transaxle itself, loose bolts someplace...

      The drivetrain noise as 'clunk' indicates a not normal condition - excess backlash and noise in drivetrain or gearsets within the transmission is not acceptable, especially with such a new 2012 model year vehicle.

      Take the vehicle back to the dealership for warranty service and diagnosis until they have resolved the problem for you.

      Inside the rear differential there are U-shaped retainers that prevent the axles from walking outward and there have been cases of these U-shaped retainers wearing out and allowing the axle to move sideways. Get this checked asap and I would stop driving the truck immediately before you cause a crash.

      On the inside jam of your passenger door or in the glove box bottom you will see a decal with many many 3 digit codes showing. Look at the codes that begin with "M" and M30 = 4L60E and MT1 = 4L80E

      Thanks house call auto going from working on the chrysler sebring to working on my truck.I have a oil leak coming from the rear main crank seal.Me and my son in law will be removing the change seals on engine and trans.Thanks for the info.on the trans.
      3/17/2014 HouseCallAuto
      Your welcome Lester. Make sure its just the seal leaking after you get the tranny away but the rear seal housing gasket should get replaced also. Its right there. It may even come with the seal in the kit.
      3/18/2014 Lester L
      Thanks again House call auto.I now know my transmission is the 4L60e what seals should I replace on the front of the transmission.I looked on looks like there's several different ones.Do I have more then one on front of trans.
      3/18/2014 HouseCallAuto
      No just the front seal - ACDELCO Part # 24202535 or TIMKEN Part # 3227
