You're in luck.. Chevy dealers have service depts and they are everywhere!

Fords, OTOH, usually dont make any noise in reverse they dont make going
forward.

So I have no idea what you mean, perhaps if you hum a few bars....

Re: help

What I mean by the reverse is like sound in stick shifta cars if you go
reverse for long distance you hear specific sound.

I know the "Chevy dealers have service depts and they are everywhere!"
but I am asking for other peopl experience before going for that.

meaning, i assume, a gear 'howl' or groan.

I googled for a proper forum to pass onto you... but all that came up was a
lot of restoring sites, unlike the ford-truck.com which covers mini-vans
too.

So I guess that it's all in your head.. Chevvies dont break.

It would be in the trans or the differential, whatever. Almost certainly
gear mis-alignemtn but probably not fatal, at least till you hear it going
forward.
