Question about 2001 Lincoln LS
My 2001 Lincoln LS keeps me a nervous reck. I never know what it is going to do. The car is in very good condition. At 1500 RPM there is a "Whine". the whining; whines as long as the RPM is @ 1500, car speed is around 43 t0 46 mile per/ hour quits @ 1600 above /1400 below, also when I'm driving @ slow RPM in gear 3 and 4 on snowy days the car wants to **** not stall, and continue to run even when I'm driving @ high or low speed.I have no warning when it is going to do this. I've been told the whine is the timing belt, power steering pump, alternator or any belt conponents. Could the whine be my transmission? Could the **** be caused by the whine in the timing belt or transmission? Help/ suggestins.
Run the car from the top of a hill and let it coast at your whining speed. Put it in Neutral, does the whine disappear?
If not its in the drivetrain (wheels, driveshafts, tranny)
Very unlikely to be the timing belt. If it appears at a fixed speed then its drivetrain, if it whines at fixed revs its the engine.
Most likey the transmission I fear....Tires will also make loud whining noise too though...
