The reverse gears are splined and not hypoid which means they are straight cut, while hypoid gears are cut on an agle. Reverse gears will always make a wining sound due to the straight cut gears. Sound in forward is making me think that clutch plate n seals are burnt out.Wouldnt be a bad idea to open her up, I had plates, seals, and a lfuid flush for 350$ and i havnt touched the tranny since. Just a suggestion

Do you live in a colder climate? if when you start your truck in the morning and you hear a whine type of noise when you place your truck in reverse, the problem you have is likely a malfunctioning valve body. this problem is common with the 46re trans log onto http://genosgarage.com this site is dedicated to rams both diesel and gas. in the search box at genos type in tech service bulletins and it will list any tsb specific to your ram. it will describe the problem and walk you through how to repair. im pretty sure this is your prob. if you start your truck with the transmission in neutral and let the engine come up to temp before engaging reverse, this will reduce the noise. part of the problem is inadequate trns fluid circulating though the torque converter. placeing your truck in neutral while idling seems to improve fluid flow thereby reducing the noise.

1997 dodge ram pu 4x4, when I turn corners or start moving I hear a grinding noise coming from the rear end area. Any idea what would cause this and estimated repair?


most common cause is rear pads sticking (rust) and when you move, it has to break the rust from the rotor,hence the grinding noise.as long as it only does it when you start moving or turn first thing do not worry.....
