The first thing you should do is check the transmission fluid and make sure it is full. If it's a really dark color and smells burnt then I'd recommend replacing it. If it's clean looking fluid then check to make sure the shift linkage is fully engaging the transmission into gear.

SOURCE: i have whine noise from gear box in 2nd gear 3rd

being a renault, the n/s drive shaft holds the oil in box, it splits, replace then try oil some times they do thousands of miles others not, 5th gear over hears and braeks teeth off, then very noisey. if getting a box there is a tag on top, silver, near the diff, this has to be matched to other gearbox as so many different boxes.

SOURCE: makes a loud whining noise and is slipping when

Verify that your trans fluid is at the correct level. When if at all was the trans last serviced?

If fluid is low, try bringing it up to proper level with Valvoline ATF+4 fluid. You need to used either fluid from a dealer, or the valvoline brand which is approved by Dodge.

Rear bearing


I would be checking first for a seized brake at that wheel as defective bearings normally will still turn by hand and when driven as you describe the noise would be a pronounced grumble. Whining noises occur when driven as you describe because the spider gears in the diff are straight cut and will make a noise when one wheel is spinning and that makes them work

Starter making whining noise


sounds as if your starter isn't engaging,usually due to either the solenoid not operating the bendix or a bendix fault, to prove a point, if the vehicle is a manual, put it in gear, handbrake off and push the car forward ( which will turn the engine into a different possition) then put h/brake on out of gear and try starter again, if it tries to turn over its possiby the starter ring gear, if not it's starter.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

I replaced the 2.73 gears with 3.42's and it makes a whining sound, and a knocking noise. I've checked the backlash and tried putting shims in, but it still makes the sounds.


why not go to the local salvage yard and buy a whole rearend with same gears as original or new gears but remember to change the drive gear on the end of the speedo cable or you will have the wrong speed

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.

Whining from engine when in gear


Just a thought- remove the oil filler cap when the whine is present - (this checks if PCV valve is faulty, causing high crankcase vacuum, which in turn causes a whistling/whine noise as air leaks past engine oil seals). Worth a check.

Try listening with a short piece of hose pipe to locate immediate area/source of noise.

Tranmission


this sounds as if your drive shaft has failed, take to your nearest mechanic and have him verify this this should only cost about 200 euros to repair if it is the drivshaft.
