this is easy... buy a volkswagen.lol.
This could be the lifters, ie you might have a sticky lifter. you can fix this yourself if you know what a lifter is and were it is situated... if you dont know any of the above I recomend you take it to a someone who knows.

SOURCE: VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

SOURCE: oscillating vibration around 60-70 mph in 6th gear

sounds like a cv joint to me. That is what usually occurs when one is showing wear. C.V joints usually wear out between 80,000 and 120,000 k.m.

Renault faults


Sounds like you might have a bad bearing or possibly a synchroniser. Fifth and Sixth gear wound more than likely share both especially a bearing. The engine noise could changed if it is a bearing and is loading the engine because a faulty bearing is making it work harder to pull it. One other thing that is possible is the engine is giving problems at that particular RPM but if it reaches the same RPM in other gears and doesn't make any noise then that has to be in the transmission..

My 95 Camry cant go into 5th gear. I was told that it was the clutch because it was making a grinding noise. I got the clutch fixed but even after that its not taking 5th gear and its still making the...


If the clutch is bad it would make the same noise in every gear, because the clutch does always the same engage and disengage the trans and its different gears. So if there is a noise in a specific gear the problem is the trans-axle ( if the noise is coming from the trans axle.)

My 1999 1.8 petrol vectra is making a whirring noise in the engine when its steady in 5th it stops


very difficult to advise without heariing the noise ,opel vectra (vauxhall) nice motors these ,if noise stops in 5th then it could be the gearbox like the layshaft needle bearings caused by low or no oil in the gearbox ,remember 5th gear doesnt use the layshaft its on the end of the mainshaft behind the cover next to the wheel arch

Transmission issues with 3rd and 5th gear


It's weird but it's the problem!!! There is a switch on the transmission near the selector, usually only affects 3rd gear!!! The switch is being distorted after repetitive battering with gear selection!!! I have experienced it and also read about it in australia on a Navara!!!
