concerned cts-v owner

I own a v that seems to be whining only on acceleration. Is this the differential problem that everyone is talking about? I have had the wheel hop in the past. I have been trying not to accerate too hard but what is the reason for owning such a car that can't handle its' own power. I love my v very much! However, after reading everything that has gone wrong scares me. I also have a loud clunk when I push the clutch in from 1st to 2nd. Is there a problem with thestock clutch? Please help me with my concerns. I just want to enjoy my caddy.

The clutch noise you are hearing is normal lash in the assembly. GM won't do anything about that. However, the whine you are hearing is indeed the differential. I just had my differential replaced for the exact same noise. Best of luck.

Install a wide band oxygen sensor in place of a stock sensor:

thank you...

Thanks for the reply. I have already placed the order for the differential. I used the info here in persuading the dealer to help my situation. I gave them the id# of the memo sent to the dealers and they printed it out for me. However, they weren't to happy to listen about the wheel hop. I don't understand something. Why build a car with so much power and torque if they are going to accuse us owners of "hard excelleration"? Oh well still love the "v".

Here's my view on "so much horsepower and torque" issue. These cars were designed from a road race car not a dragster, so you will run into problems when you do things a road race car doesn't do. These cars are tons of fun on the road course. Horsepower makes you go fast, torque makes you go quick. Both are needed on the road course.

Just my $0.02
