1st, 3rd and 5th Gears all pop out of place + Whining noise
Car is a 1995 440 not the 2000 s40. my car wasn't available in the drop down menu, but they're very similar cars so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My car started off making a whining sound two days ago, and as it's christmas I can't get it to a garage. The whining sound starts low pitched in each gear then gets higher pitched as the rev's increase. Doesn't make the noise when the car is in Neutral or the clutch is depressed.
Today i've had more problems. Now it is very difficult to get it into 1st gear, very stiff, and when I get it in, I have to hold it in place or it'll pop back out and make a grinding noise. So I have to hold it in place til I get to second gear, then make use of just second and fourth for all my driving as all the other gears (1st, 3rd and 5th) do the same.
Re: 1st, 3rd and 5th Gears all pop out of place + Whining...
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.

I had same problem with mine when I first got it. It's really quite a simple fix, if indeed it is the same problem. Anyway you need to jack up the front end and support it on both sides with jack stands. crawl up underneath the car and look for where your gear shifter comes down through the floor of the car. follow the linkage, and check that its nice and tight. I am telling you this from memory so sorry for the vagueness, but there are two pretty big screws holding it in place. Maybe they are lose or as it was in my case, one fell out. I replaced the screw and tightened the other and voila! worked beautifully. Hope this helps.
this would be an internal bearing inside the gearbox on the input shaft......you have the shft coming in form the engine, and the input shaft houses 1,2, 3rd and 4th gears.....the 5th gear is located on an intermediate shaft.....and then you have the output shaft...now if you had said all gears i would have said output shaft bearing......and if you had said 5th gear only, then this would be the intermedaite gear.....
but you are only saying 1,2 and 3......why its not happening in fourth is that the gear ratios that the shafts turn in correlation to thre gearing changes as you get to 4, like on a 10 speed bicycle but in 4th it is a 1:1 ratio, so no excessive loads on the shafts are noticeable....
Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.
Well, you say the noise is in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th, and I assume this is an overdrive tranny with the overdrive in 5th.
This means your 4th gear is more than probably direct (1:1) ratio.
Meaning you have a bad countershaft bearing(s), or gears...
In direct, your countershaft still spins but carries no power/torque to the wheels (it is basically just freewheeling), input shaft speed/torque goes directly/is locked to the output shaft, so you don't hear the noise; in any other gear, where the countershaft bears a load, you hear the bad bearing or gears.
Either way your tranny has serious internal issues and needs to be rebuilt before it destroys itself.
