What would make a trans squeal while driving down the road?

You don't say, Front or rear wheel drive. First check oil level, On rear wheel drive check the thrower plate on the tail shaft at the diff end is not bent and rubbing on the seal, A dry oil seal can make this can the U/Joints. on front wheel drive , check the cv joints , dry oil seals , the drive shaft inner cv joints have a thrower plate that may be bent. worn or binding brakes can make this noise also.

Jeep cherokee rear differential

diff overheating is from incorrect mesh of the crownwheel and pinion
that can be from too little clearance , too much clearance of failing bearings and too much preload on the pinion bearings
it can also be from incorrect oil level in the diff to the bottom of the threads of the fill plug
it is time to pull the diff and check the bearings
the problem will most likely be the bearing behind the pinion as that one takes all the load
diffs normally run hot but it is the escaping oil that is the problem
that could be from bearings on the pinion allowing the lip of the flange seal to not seal properly

My Honda 2004 CR-V develops a howling noise from the rear of the car after about 20 miles of driving. I have changed the rear differential fluid, and burnished the differential clutches per Honda Service...

A howling noise from a diff is an indication of the gear mesh( pinion to crown wheel) is not correct. Several reasons being worn pinion bearings--loss of preload on the pinion bearings --- crown wheel carrier bearings failing ---not sufficient preload on the bearings---wear on the teeth from incorrect diff oil in use. or simply wrong diff oil. The grade should be 80w90 OEP for normal or special oil for limited slip diffs.

If the car was recently serviced and they did the diff oils,the wrong oil or a 'friction modifier' was not added.Limited slip diffs need a different oil to other diffs.The noise you hear is the clutch plates inside the diff,shuddering.In a straight line,the noise goes away.Hope this helps

Metal shavings in the oil of the differential whats going on ...

The metal shaving in the oil in your diff is a bad sign, you should not have that problem if your car is new and under warranee, if the proble is within your warrantee period, take it to service.

The metal shaving in the oil indicateds your pinion (input gear) to your ring gear (driven gear), the shims may be too tight or the bearing might run out of true, therefore the intermeshing of both gear teeth is too close causing high pressure point on the tooth and wear, the metal shaving is either your gears or could be your bearing that is no longer within limited, this is a serious and sould be fix immediately.

The oil in the diff act as a seal, cool, lubricate and wash of the gears and bearing. It should not be like that if your car is less than 150,000km.

It makes noise when it is hot because the heat expands the metal parts causing them even close together, as a result too tight = rapid wearing. Stop driving and get it service or else you are looking for a new diff.

Cheers and good luck

May be you should make sure all the oil levels are good and especially the tranfer oil and check the drive shaft's center bearing as well.

Rear diff noise

We have to be sure where the noise is coming from, a advise you or ask someone to do the following tests:
  1. jack your both your rear tires and make sure its stable. turn your tires either manually or by shifting gear into reverse and try listening to any humming or whiny sound or vibration not only from your rear differentials but also your transmisssion and independent transfer case.
  2. Be sure it secured and will not move and will not squish you under.
  3. also check on your rear propellers, differentials for excessive play
  4. If you determined where it is coming from, check on your gear oils.
My own assesment from what you have just told us, is I would also check on your clutch system, because whiney noise only exist when you are backing up the car. I hope you would pin point which part is causing the whiney noise to save you all the headache of having it repaired.
Comment after you determine where it is coming from.
Thanks for dropping by fixya
