Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1991 Daihatsu Hijet 4x4 Van makes a fairly loud high pitched humming sound when accelerating in 4th gear(4 speed manual). It only makes the sound when pushing on the gas in 4th gear.

well it could be a few things but most likely you belt is sliping. That is very common and happens to all cars over the years if the belt is not changed. You should check it out. The belt could be bad but it could also be a bad pully. If you dont know what these parts are look them up on google. its very simple

- Does it happen when standing if you raise the RPMs up to 2-3,000? If yes, listen closely to the alternator.
- Is it related to road speed? If so, then you should put it on a chassis lift, wheels free, then cause it to happen by putting it in gear and raising RPMs to road speed.
I suspect it isn't the acceleration that causes the pitch to change but rather engine RPMs.
You could check this while on the road by starting in a lower gear and noting when the whine is very noticeable, then slip into the next higher gear to see if the whine changes or remains the same. If it remains, it probably isn't related to the engine but to some rotating part(s) outside it (for example, wheel bearings.) If it changes, then the noise is coming from some engine component and alternators can do this when the amperage load is high; it's also a part that turns at a fairly high speed and will 'whine' rather than 'growl.'

Probably the front differential, your probably hearing the famous differential gear whine. Change the oil, put Lucas for gears in it. You can get a hand operated oil pump to **** it out through the dip stick if it has one. Then fill it with the recommended amount.
