Need help. I have started hearing a pop sound while driving on the freeway or down the street. Sounds like a back fire but it seems to be coming from the front rather than the rear. Just had water pump replaced and brakes done. Not sure if a change of the plugs and wire would help. I took it to the shop and they said they would need to hear the noise to diagnose it and charge me $90. Any ideas? Cat, plugs, fuel mixture...I have no clue. Thanks guys. Escalade 2005 230,000 miles.
The popping kept getting more frequent. Then it started to shift funny until it got into 2nd gear. Had it towed to a shop and they said it is clearly the transmission. Getting it rebuilt but it has 230K on it so I guess things don't last forever.
Price given was $2300 with all high end new parts inside. From what I have researched and found it sounds like a good price. Any thoughts?
