Rear shocks,that can do it, the most prevalent of all is the binding driveshaft slip joint due to a lack of lubrications. This is more prevalent from a quick stop ,or pulling out of a quick stop,alot of Kia Sorento owner have this problem the fix is to seperate the the drive shft half and lubricate the joints and reassemble and retest

SOURCE: i hear a whine when

If you have a turbo that could be it, usually around 40 mph it's noticeable. Driveline, gearbox and differential can also produce a whine. Put it in neutral and coast, listen for any variations. Clutch in, clutch out...after you pinpoint the area it's coming from it will be easier to troubleshoot.
Hope this helps,

Car runs smooth, until I have to stop at red light or stop sign, then it runs rough. When I put it it neutral, it runs smooth. Could that be the EGR valve sticking? Any help would be appreciated, than


Depends on what you mean by rough. Could be a cylinder misfire.They sometimes are not noticed as engine speed increases during driving or under light load as when idling in neutral but at idle under load as when stopped at a light in drive became noticable.
Could also be running rich. The causes of either are too numurous to list.Consult a good mechanic who can actually see and hear the problem to put you on the right track.

May even be as simple as a bad seal on gas cap. Stop in to one of the bigger autoparts stores such as Autozone, Pep Boys etc, and they will scan it for free to point you in the right direction. If code(s) doesn't give obvious fix, get back to us with code and we'll further assist you.

WHEN DRIVING AND THE TRANS NEEDS TO SHIFT ON MY 2005 VW JETTA 2.5-5 NEW STYLE THE RPM'S REV UP BRIEFLY THEN THE TRANS WILL SHIFT THE SHIFTING IS SMOOTH BUT THE HIGH RPMS WORRY ME.


when vw started to use the computer controlled gearbox system a criticism was the shift was very harsh,to counter this they made it rev slightly before changing.so that you know the system, try this out....without touching the gas.....put it in d and let the car accelerate to its max speed,stop,then use 1/3rd of gas (keep your foot still)and let it do the same...stop,then,if safe,put your foot to the floor,hard, notice when the car changes gear(revs/speed)then if you drive,only using the first1/3rd of the gas,the cars change pattern will alter to suit.......wierd it is.....

How to reset the service engine soon light


If there is an Auto Zone or any other large auto parts store, have them scan the truck for the DTC codes. The DTC codes will identify the Issues that needs to be addressed in your engine and transmission that has set off the service engine light on. Once the issues has been resolved, the light will reset it self after the third start up and after 40 start up will erase it self from the history as long as there is no additional issues. Good luck and hope this helps, Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.

When first driving, I hear a high pitched whistling sound while my foot is on the accelerator. As I pick my foot off the accelerator, the sound will stop completely or after a moment or two and then return...


I have the exact same problem, however reversed. My whistling sound stops when I accelerate and starts when my foot is off the accelerator. Frustrates me and am afraid to have it looked at for fear of the cost of fixing this problem. Have you since discovered what the problem is or was?
