Definetly try oil and filter change on gearbox , they have internall filter that block slightly , if this doesnt work i would think one of your diff bearings may be on its way out .

Whining noise on Volvo 240 when in neural and park


A common cause of a whining or buzzing type noise when not in gear (neutral and park) is a WORN PUMP in the transmission. How many miles are on the car??

A noisy pump is just noisy and won't cause a breakdown until it becomes MUCH louder. If the noise is not that loud at this point, just keep driving it for now, and chalk it up to normal wear & tear. But DOOO make sure your transmission fluid is topped off. The amount of fluid between the LOW and FULL marks is about one pint. DON'T overfill OR allow it to get below the LOW mark. Transmissions are VERY fluid-level-sensitive.

97 Lincoln Continental whining noise when driving noise increases when pressing on gas also sometimes when starting the car it goes away once in awhile


that whine you are hearing is the transmissions torque converter , it is low on fluid , how long since you had auto tranny flushed , pull the tranny dipstick , fluid should be red or pink , if it is brown or even worse BLACK , your transmission is ready to fail

Whining when I give it gas, hen goes away before it seems to get to 3rd auto. gear


Try this have your transmission fluid and filter changed if you have not had it done in over 50,000 miles. Whining is a indicator that the fluid is getting dirty.

I have a 1996 landcruiser and I have a gearbox problem, it seems to be getting stuck in gear and feels like its building pressure in the box, it still drives barely and it's also making a whining nois


Go check your clutch master cylinder,if empty,then your slave cylinder is bad,you can fill up and bleed to get you to a auto parts store to replace,if fluid is okay,then disreguard this.

1998 ford Taurus Whining Noise


Does this noise lessen as you drive at high speeds?
Is the noise present at all gears including park and reverse?
Either purchase a stethoscope at Autozone or use a very long screwdriver place it behind water pump,alternator and a/c pulley and listed for the whining noise. Where ever you hear it with the scope / screwdriver is the problem.
If you don't hear anything at the described pulleys then get all four wheels off the ground, get on a creaper and place whatever your using as a listening device on the transmission . If its comming out of here its the pump inside the torque converter . If its not and the only time its happening is when your driving it could be wheel bearings (not likely because they grind and howl). The same with axle's except if the boots are torn. this may be your problem. I think its the transmission. Good luck

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

During driving the transmission switches to neutral (Lexus RX300)


Your tranny need to be repaired at once. The tranny is slipping. Some Lexus owners do have the similar problem including myself.

Continuous "whine" @ 1500 RPM only; and jerks/2001 Lincoln LS


Run the car from the top of a hill and let it coast at your whining speed. Put it in Neutral, does the whine disappear?
If not its in the drivetrain (wheels, driveshafts, tranny)
Very unlikely to be the timing belt. If it appears at a fixed speed then its drivetrain, if it whines at fixed revs its the engine.
Most likey the transmission I fear....Tires will also make loud whining noise too though...
