Probably the final drive bearing inside the trans - a bad habit with those trans - design flaw, oiled poorly. No quick fix, must tear the trans down to get to it.

SOURCE: Galant 2003,Abnormal whinning noise on gear shifting.

I would have the transmission fluid checked to see if it needs any added and if it doesn't it sounds like a bearing going out or something. I would take the car to the dealer, since it's fairly a newer model and see if they can find the source of the problem. they are best when it comes to knowing everything about your car than any other shop around.

SOURCE: fourwheel drive noise when driving in 2wd noise whinning sound

This is a somewhat common problem with the 04-06 MY 4x4 trucks.

The IWE vac solenoid can ingest water, and introduce it to the IWE, or can develop a problem where it does not keep constant vac on the IWE ends, and the gears hang part in ( grinding ).

You can check the IWE solenoid to make sure it will supply VAC to the IWE ( vac keeps the IWE out, remove vac, and the spring will engage it into the gears ).

You can check the vac lines to the IWE, and the solenoid, but I hate to say the IWE solenoid needs to be replaced.

Here is a link to a PDF version of the TSB with the part number for the updated IWE solenoid that the 07& 08 MY trucks have.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE layout, so you can check the vac lines. Hope it is as easy as a cracked vac line. Also check that the vent tubes are clear, and still up into the engine compartment.

How to fix whinning noise when car is accelerating, or turning? Is the whinning noise an electrical issue, fuel pump, power related, etc.?


the whining noise is your engines alternator bearings
they are worn out , the alternator is close to failure
it is barely producing any voltage
( the battery light in the dash only indicates that the alternator is no longer generating any amperage )

What gear oil is recommended for 2005 lincoln aviator


I used SFR (Superior Friction Reduction) with 80w90 gear oil in a Ford differential and experienced an increase in MPG. Mine never made noise but I am in favor of the friction conditioning fluid with the gear oil. I ran that car for 270k miles and the rear axle was as quiet as new.

Whinning noise from engine when changing gear went to pull off in 1st gear car stalled and now cannot engae gears is this just the clutch cable or something else


Hi, I think the noise you were getting while changing gear is most likely to be the clutch release
bearing ( as you press the clutch down the release bearing contacts the clutch pressure plate
fingers ).
The whinning noise is the bearing seizing up,
Unfortunately it looks like yours has damaged the fingers of the pressure plate so the clutch is not disengaging to allow you to select a gear.
A clutch kit will need to be fitted this contains clutch plate, pressure plate, release beaing
I hope this dos`nt turn out to be to expensive for you
