Sounds like you have a planetary gear whine. This is internal to the transmission and only engages when in gear. The only correction is t minimul, a soft rebuild of the transmission.

I have a 1987 G20 Van 305 automatic,turbo 400 tranny. I get going the tranny shifts fine til I hit 50mph then it starts to slip , I have done a filter and fluid change , had to replace the vacuum line...


It could be failing clutch packs or a failing torque converter. I had a TH350 that whined after upshifting to 3rd, then it quit. For me it was the torque converter. It took out the entire transmission, including the oil pump.

What would cause my transmission to whine, but only in gear, not in neutral or park?


Time for a trans rebuilt

What your hearing is mostly pump noise, from
fine debris in the pump valve bores or worn bores

2001 is way over due to come apart

Worn out from heat & wear & seldom seen a fluid change

Funny shifting is worn & hardened rubber parts,partially
clogged solenoids,dirty valve body,the usual, given the years
& mileage on it

Check for failed engine mounts as that will put the linkage out of line and cause hard movement. The bolt for the mount has to be in the middle of the rubber and if it is faulty will be to the bottom of the rubber.

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..

it does sound like the transmission has packed it in. you might be able to find a decent used one via a wrecking yard and get a local mechanic to install it.
try to find one out of a car with under 100K miles on it.

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.

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...
