Question about 2000 Volvo S40
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.
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.
