Sounds like it is time to have the pressure plate serviced and a new clutch put in the tranny

My car is a standard trans. When weather got cooler car started making a whining sound even after car is warmed up.


The fluid is more thick in colder temp. thicker also means lowe level. Check your fluid level in hte cold. Could even be the input shaft bearing howling as well. Does sound match speed or engine speed?

VW 1996 Transporter T5 Shifting problems hard shifting when cold but as it warms up it shifts better.


Your fluid is either old or the wrong kind for your transmission. Changing your manual transmission fluid with a higher quality fluid should definitely reduce the difficulty of cold fluid/cold weather shifting. First go to the parts store and find out exactly what kind of fluid your transmission takes. Most manual transmission use gear oil. I recommend using something like Red Line, AMSOIL, or Royal Purple if available. A synthetic will make it even easier to shift. Always check with the manufacturer if you are unsure. I try to stick with the manufacturers recommendations because typically they know what works best with what they've engineered...but sometimes after market fluids can't be outperformed.

99 isuzu rodeo auto transmission making loud noise when shifting


It wil require that your trans is rebuilt or replaced
with a factory built or reman

If you change your fluid every 3 years you avoid
most trans problems

After 12 years they are pretty much worn out anyway

Check your power steering fluid level. If too low the pump will whine like that. Put some in it if low. Don't buy power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid is the same thing and is much cheaper.

Does the high-pitch whine exist when the engine is just running? Not moving (transmission is not in gear)? Running but with transmission in neutral (coasting down hill)?

2001 celica gt Hatch has a whining sound. 10,2000 miles(.Tran Fluid is up but dark with a barely red color.) When its warming up I hear a new whining sound. The car is a combo standard and automatic. ...


trans will raise line pressure when cold that will cause hydraulic pump to scream causing that noise, so check your temperature gage and t-stat to make sure its getting up to temperature has intended by manufacture a cold engine will hold gears longer and at hi press until working temp is reached. good luck.

My 2005 Jetta is not shifting smoothly between the lower gears and makes a kind of clunking sound from 3rd-2nd. Drives very nice on freeway but it is very noticible when stopping and going frequently. ...


Standard or automatic? If auto have you checked your fluid. Is it full and what does it look like a bright red or a deep burnt red that smells burnt. Automatic transmissions use solenoids to control shifts for a while now. Occasionally they can get plugged or quit working due to small metal filings that come from where on transmission. When they gopen they will cause hard shifts.. p.'s. Is it cold where you are as vw transmissions really don't like the cold. They is many reports of cold weather causing hard shifts and also slow reacting to going into drive or reverse.

I replaced the 2.73 gears with 3.42's and it makes a whining sound, and a knocking noise. I've checked the backlash and tried putting shims in, but it still makes the sounds.


why not go to the local salvage yard and buy a whole rearend with same gears as original or new gears but remember to change the drive gear on the end of the speedo cable or you will have the wrong speed

1st, 3rd and 5th Gears all pop out of place + Whining noise


hi my name is nathan .......now...... what it sounds like is #1 (I have to hold it in place til I get to second gear) that can be that your shift linkage is worn or out of adjustment,pilot bushing is Badly worn,shift fork,lever and or shaft is bent or worn,or your bell housing is misaligned or just loose...i have a few more ideas on why it is jumping out but those are the main ones now about your whining gear noise#2( The whining sound starts low pitched in each gear then gets higher pitched as the rev's increase) you may have worn gears maybe or it could be just that your transmission lubricant is incorrect or inadequate.
