Whine in all gears

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?

It is likely the diff making the noise.

SOURCE: Front whine when turning left and at whine when

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..

SOURCE: Rear End Whine Under Load

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.

Nissan pathfinder 1995 model SUV, when i try to start it its making a whinning noise then i hear a hard clucking sound and the whinning goes away without the car starting


Does the engine crank at all ?
The low whine could be the starter turning but not engaging the flywheel.
The clunk could be when the bendix gear on the starter makes contact with the flywheel.
If the starter does not have enough voltage, the solenoid or bendix may not engage. Even tho you replaced both the starter and battery, there could be a problem with the cables or the ground connection.

My Honda CRV (1998) is making a high pitched whine sometimes when I'm driving. It seems to happen when the rpms are high before shifting (I own a standard transmittion CRV). It whines between 2.5 and 3...


Does the high-pitch whine exist when the engine is just running? Not moving (transmission is not in gear)? Running but with transmission in neutral (coasting down hill)?

Gear whine at all speeds, recent. looks like pinion seal leaking, wet. Whine stops when clutch in and coasting. Should I see my mechanic immediately?


Yes...It can only get worse. If mechanic is a good distance from you, add lube to the diff before going there.

Whining noise when engaging 1st or reverse.


i had a nissan pickup that would whine in all gears except 4th...it started out with 1st then reverse then went to the rest...solution was new transmission...or rebuild cause the syncronizers or the gears them selves are being chewed up...the new transmission was cheaper then a rebuild. or take it to somewhere that will do free diag on the transmission.

1995 Rodeo has a whine to the transmission, is this normal??


Be Very Careful If your hearing whines from transmission.

On Automatic Could Be Filter, Low ON Transmission Fluid Or Power converter(Pump) Going out.

On Standard Could be low on fluid or worn gears.

Occasionally transmissions are misdiagnosed for rear end noise.

Continuous "whine" @ 1500 RPM only; and jerks/2001 Lincoln LS


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...

MY 1997 NISSAN XE 2.4 LITER, 4 CYLINDER, 5-SPEED STANDARD 2WD TRUCK WILL NOT GO IN REVERSE WITH VEHICLE BEING STILL WITHOUT KNOCKING IT IN GREAR WITH YOUR FIST BUT IT WILL GO IN GEAR IF YOU ARE COASTING...


With the vehicle sitting still, ease the clutch out just a little bit while trying to engage reverse. If it pops in, even with a little grinding, it seems the bearings on the counter shaft may be a little stiff. Have you checked the level of the gear lube in the transmission?
