Question about 1989 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

I have a 95 Chevy Tahoe and when I accelerate from a stop I hear a whining noise. It goes away after about 3rd gear and when I have the cruise on. There is also an odd noise when I turn, mostly left. Any suggestions on what it might be?

    I haven't checked the power steering fluid yet. I plan to this afternoon. Do the engine whining sound and the steering noise go together?

  • blue_eyes_11 Jun 15, 2009

    Great! Thanks for the help! I will check it at lunch and hopefully fill up the fluid and it will be an easy fix

    I filled up the power steering fluid and both the noise when I turn and the engine whining noise are gone!! Thanks for the help!! =0)

    Oh boy, hopefully that doesn't happen. The rubber seal around the plug looked to be in good shape. I will keep a check on it and see how fast is does/doesn't go down.

    Yes. When you rev up the engine, the pump speeds up and it will whine parallel to the RPMs of your engine.

You may also want to check the transmission oil. I can't hear the whine, so i'm only guessing.

    Okay, great! Now you have to find out where it's leaking. If it's really slow, you don't have to worry about it too much. It's probably a hose connection, or the seal on the pump. Just keep an eye on it. If a hose blows when you're driving it can be interesting. All of a sudden you have arm stong steering, and it always happens on a corner.

Sounds like it may be going on you.When you accelerate from a stop you put added pressure on the belt, which is fine if are the pulleys and components are good. If the compressor is going bad it will struggle handling the added pressure The cheap possibility is the belt is old and stretched and needs replaced.

Loud whine then knock in overdrive


well, without hearing the noise myself, i could guess that the torque converter clutch might be going bad. the torque converter is the part that transfers the power from the engine to the transmission via viscous fluid motion, the converter also has a clutch that internally provides a direct connection inside the converter for better fuel economy. but as with anything labeled as a clutch, it wears down to a point where is slips. the noise your hear could be the torque converter clutch slipping. i owned a 90 astro van with the same drivetrain that made a noise similar to what you speak of up hills. while driving up hills, fully depress the accelerator and if the clunking noise occurs, then the whine goes away as you accelerate faster in a lower gear, very likely this is the case. you would have to have a transmission shop diagnose further. i drove that old van for five more years cause i didn't want to pay to have transmission repaired. it can be very expensive.

SOUNDS LIKE A POWER STEERING PUMP NOISE, IF THAT IS NOT IT THEN IT IS THE FRONT PRESSURE PUMP IN THE TRANSMISSION.

I am assuming the whining noise is not in the engine area.

The transmission is the most likely cause.
When put in a heavy load on acceleration , The trasnmission internal pump is whining . The cause of this is lack of pressure from the fluid because of a seal or gasket , clutches or steels are damage.
When the vehicle gets into cruising speed , The pressrue is less and the pump is not working as hard. The torque convertor lock up helps the pump. I would make sure the fliud is topped off.
The noise might go away with the correct amount of fluid thus changing the overall pressure of the transmission fluid inside.
If this does not help, I would take to the transmission shop in the area ,
Again this is assuming the engine is running normally.
