Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1995 Nissan 2wd pickup, manual shift. I've detected a faint whine in all gears and while coasting and about to take trip of 2500 miles. The whine sounds like it coming from the transmission. But it could also be coming from the differential. A new alternator was installed a few months ago, and I haven't checked the power steering fluid level yet. My gut tells me it's the transmission at fault. What do you say?

Whine usually occurs on tight turns maximising pump output and/or pump may be worn and needs replacement. Leakage can be from pump reservor,connection, or power rack and pinion steering assy. Spray off any area with a sign of fluid with a brake clean or carb. cleaner and look for signs of leakage.

SOURCE: i have a 98 ford f150 thats sounds like a power steering whine, but the reservior is full and the steering i working fine. It only whines when you get the rpm above 1500 when it shifts it goes away. i
Sounds similar to my Sable.. I was told that it is the power steering pump making the whine and that if I couldn't stand it, I'd have to have it changed.. Other than the whine, it works just fine.. SO, it's whined for about 10 years, now..

Replacing gears and/or bearings in a differental is not an easy project. You'll need a press. The positioning of the gears requires a great deal of precision. Shims are used to acheve the correct setting. Preload setting on the pinion bearings is critical. I would recommend leaving this one to the experts.
