It COULD be the bolts to the torque converter or a cracked "flex plate". It could also be internal problems. ANSWER Another guy asked the same. He told to lube the yoke at the end of the rear transmission. I have the same problem and I am going to try this. I have just repaired the automatic tranmsmission and the clunk is still there. May be the solution is simple and not expensive. Good luck

Which trucking companies have auto shift transmissions?

US Xpress Enterprises and PAM Transport are two major companies which do. I've heard rumours that Maverick does, as well, but I don't know for certain. If you're just getting started in driving, I'd advise against going to such a company. What you learn about shifting in truck driving school does not make you proficient at shifting. If you start off with a company like US Xpress (which is a perfectly fine company to work for, don't get me wrong), then decide you want to work elsewhere, and that elsewhere doesn't use automatic transmissions, you're going to find yourself left wanting. By the way, there is a difference between automatic and autoshift transmissions - autoshift transmissions are basically a manual gearbox, fitted with a synchroniser and computerised shifting system. They still use a clutch. They're also going the way of the dinosaur, with the advent of the Meritor, Eaton Smart Shift, etc. fully automatic transmissions.

What causes a high pitch whine on the drivers side of my 2005 Chevy trail blazer?

Depends. Do you always hear it or only when speeding up and slowing down. I have the same thing on mine but nothing is wrong with it. It's the transmission that's making the sound. Nothing to worry about unless you start to get a clunking or grinding sound, then you have problems...
