It has been my experience that that type of whine as you call it your probally looking at a torque converter, or FRONT transmission pump going out I had the same type of condition on my wife Ford tarus and I'd beet if you listen carefully the whine will ALWAYS be there and your trans fluid probally smells burned and maybe it might have small pieces of metal in it might be compared to.glitter in your fluid may want to limit use of the car till a transmission shop you trust gets it te keep from.damaging anymore hard internal parts good luck.Sorry to be the barrier of bad news I wish you my best

1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse whining noise from the rear when accelerating


A whining noise during acceleration usually, is from the gear set, indicating the pinion is too close to the ring gear.
I believe the eclipse is a FWD car though. Could it be the transmission you are hearing?

Rear End Whine Under Load


Replacing gears and/or bearings in a differental is not an easy project. You'll need a press. The positioning of the gears requires a great deal of precision. Shims are used to acheve the correct setting. Preload setting on the pinion bearings is critical. I would recommend leaving this one to the experts.

Discovery 3 MY09 TDV6 front end whine under load acceleration


When you say whine does it only occur under acceleration only? If so most likely the wheel hub assembly or some will say wheel bearing but on these vehicles it is complete hub assembly. If you turn or swerve one way then the other does it go away in one direction? If so another strong indication of hub wearing out. If not, and it is a really high whine with acceleration it is also possibly the transmission. I have heard of this complaint before, it's not a sign of failure just a noise that develops due to the pressure placed on bearing under a load. First change fluid and filter for tranny after a good flushing. Replace with high quality fluid and a bottle of transmission seal restore product. Go 1000 miles, change fluid again, if noise is still there turn up radio.
Sorry but just a whine under acceleration isn't a lot to go on. But I'm willing to bet wheel hub. 9 out of ten front end whine complaints is wheel hub or bearing especially on a heavy 4x4 suv

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe V6-2.7L. Engine has rough idle which is more pronounced when in gear and less when transmission is put in neutral. Once engine is up to speed 25 or higher engine seems to smooth out...


There are several possible causes for the drivability issue you describe. I'd be guessing at this point with the limited information here. Best advice, take it to an authorized Hyundai Service Department & have it properly diagnosed. This way you'll find out exactly what the problem is and what it will take to fix it.

Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

I understand that you are having transmission problems. Sadly there is only one solution with the problems that you have mentioned. You need to have your automatic transmission overhauled.

I hope you get this problem sorted out right away. Have a nice day.

2004 Grand Cherokee Whine - What is the Problem


It sounds like your power steering fluid is low. When the fluid is low there will almost always be a constant growl coming from the pump. Worst case - it may be the pump itself going bad. . I own 3 Jeeps but have only had this problem on my 87 Cherokee.
Ford PS pumps are notorious for making noise as they get old, but they still seem to work ok. This may be the case with your Jeep. If the PS still works and the fluid level is normal, it may just be a matter of whether or not you can stand to listen to the noise.
