Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like a bearing is on the way out in the gearbox, nothing really to worry about yet, if it is still going into gear, and not making a grinding noise.
mine makes a whirring noise when accelerating through 1-3rd gears.
It's when there is grinding and growling in the gear box that you need to worry.

where does the noise come from? engine? back of car? can you feel it in the steering wheel? more through the brake pedal? is it worse under heavy braking? does it change when you brake or accelerate harshly?

SOURCE: When slowing down, everything is
Are there codes in the transmission computer? Likely the torque converter clutch is not disengaging or a holding member with the transmission could not be releasing. this could be caused by a faulty shift solenoid or a mechanical failure with the transmission. Check to ensure the transmission shift properly under all conditions. Also, stall test the torque converter, put it in gear hold the brakes firm and throttle the engine. Generally the torque converter will stall out around or above 2,000 rpm. If it stalls out much lower, check the torque converter clutch solenoid for proper operation.
Again, check the transmission computer for codes. You will need an advanced OBD1 scan tool which can communicate like a hikock scan tool ( ford factory for that era)
