Differential noise/whine when of 1994 land rover discovery

When the disco is cruising on higher gear specially when free wheeling (not accelerating), the differential has a whine... can this be solved by adding differential conditioner/additives?

    The differential in my Chevy Tahoe was repaired recently, but it is whining. I was told that I would need to add or remove shims from the pinion gear to stop the whining. Is this correct?

1994 Land Rover Discovery Manual has a grinding and clunking noise from rear, right side


A grinding noise suggests a bearing at fault or perhaps worn pads on the brake rotor.

However, the clunking noise you mention could also point to a problem with the drive shaft or differential.

The first thing you should do is to get under the vehicle and try twisting the propshaft back and forth. If there's any movement this points towards a worn universal joint on the propshaft. A worn universal joint can cause a clunking noise - particularly when pulling away. The vibration caused by a worn universal joint can also damage bearings in the differential and also to the splined ends of the axle shaft.

You're also going to have to remove the wheel from where the noise comes from and examine the end of the axle shaft/bearing.

95 landrover disco has problem with transmission or transfer case. will move when I put it in Lock HI and Lock Lo but will not move when transfer case shifter goes to road gears in hi or lo and will whine...


Sounds as if the gears may be broken in the rear axle, the front axle will pull the car if in four wheel drive but when in 2 wheel drive only the rear axle pulls. Get the back tires off the ground and turn the rear end by the wheels. You may or may not hear any noise but if it is in park it you should feel some resistance if the gears are in good shape, will likely turn freely or lock up completely in spots if the gears are broken.

The differentials should be disengaged or you going to do damage. They should only be locked in when moving at low speeds.

My 1993 discovery v8 auto wont change into 4th gear


It sounds like you need to have your d-tent adjusted which is your kick down cable. I would take it by a local transmission shop and have them take a look. This would be the simplest, most accurate answer as to what is going on. If they say your transmission is shot, ask them what they believe the problem to be. Automatic transmissions are complicated. Hope this helps.
