I just got my Jeep TJ back with a new clutch, a retaining pin blew apart and caused internal damage to other clutch parts so I have a new clutch. $819.00.
My Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 is making a howling noise from the rear end. It gets louder when I accelerate and stops when the truck is stopped. When the engine is revved in neutral the sound is not there and the engine sounds fine. I don't think the transmission, u-joints or drive shaft is causing the noise. Could it be the differential or rear wheel bearings? What the test for the wheel bearings if I pull the diff cover and it's fine? The bottom of the differential case appears wet but not dripping and we have just returned from Moab, UT pulling a small trailer.
Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
