Making the 150 mile trek from the Poconos to State college this weekend, I noticed a new noise from the truck. It seems to be getting worse with time and mileage. It sounds to me like something in the rear end is dry. I could be imagining but it almost seems like fuel consumption has increased as well. Just buzzing about town here, I notice the humming start up between 30 and 35 mph. I checked my transmission fluid, I'll check it again tomorrow as I'm not positive the truck was hot enough. My next step is to pop the plug in the pumpkin and check the fluid back there. I hope and pray that it's low and adding fluid to it now will catch it before it causes any real damage. Granted, the truck has 232K on the clock, but it has to last me at least one more semester, as I'm a broke student.
