Looking for good shop in Boston/Providence metro area. >>
Thought I'd post this here too (mods, feel free to delete here or in the V6 section if I'm running afoul of the rules).
Trying to track down an issue that's cropped up after having my gears redone (but I don't think it's related to the gears themselves as they were done by an experienced mechanic).
Basically, the problem is this. I get a brief whistling whine at around 1k RPM, mainly when coasting in gear. I also notice some increased driveline vibrations around 60 mph and a rumble coasting at low speeds. All seems to be coming from the transmission area. My thinking is that the 6R80 isn't really known to blow up under normal use, so I suspect U-joints or maybe output bearing as a source.
Dealer would be a last resort, so looking for recs of a good shop or two that members have used and which could handle this fairly routine (I hope) stuff. Would rather not pick something off a list of web results or a phone book.
