when it is cold especially I crank up put the truck in reverse and the back area makes a loud wining noise. It makes the noise when going in reverse only. it does it most of the time, but always when its cold. I just had the transmission rebuilt less than two years ago. I don't think it is that. Could it be the pinoin nut on the rear axl

Originally I only had a problem with it stalling after taking a sharp corner or stopping at a light, and it would usually start up again right away but then it got worse and took longer before it would start. Replacing the spark plugs and the wires going to them seemed to fix the problem completely for a couple months, but now it will randomly refuse to start or stalls while driving. Sometimes it feels a little "sluggish" while driving, a few minutes before it actually stalls but feels like it's running fine just before it does.

rplaced wires plug distr. rotor and pickup
