Escort mk6 1.8 Estate has a noise from the gearbox

My recently bought Escort mk6 1.8 Estate has a rumbling noise, from I think the gearbox. Even when you depress the clutch or take it out of gear. Is this normal on this engine/gearbox Its done 109000 miles. Gear changes are fine and it runs fine too. It sounds sort of like wind/road noise coming through an open window. ???

Recently developed a whinning when I first start to move


Where is the whining noise actually coming from .. engine/gearbox or elsewhere?
A whining/screeching noise could be a drive belt .. such as the belt that drives the alternator.

On a manual car it could be the clutch bearing making the noise until it warms up. Does the clutch make a noise when you depress the pedal? That's the thrust bearing .. the bearing that operates the clutch.

I don't think you have too much to worry about. If you had engine trouble there would be knocks, rumbles and strange noises at all speeds.

A whining noise is usually associated with something spinning/turning .. such as a pulley/idler on a drive belt or a bearing alternator.

Put your mind at rest - get a mobile mechanic's opinion.

Rumbling noise under neath car


I am at a loss knowing what gear box your referring to and if the rumbling noise began before or after changing the box. There are many things that could simply be loose underneath a vehicle. A wheel bearing can definitely make a rumbling noise. Sure you changed the right one. Can be hard to tell which one sometimes. Sorry I couldn't help more than I did.

Hello all, I've bought a 57 reg V70 that has a rumble coming from the nearside underframe. All suspension bushes, etc. have been check and nothing found wrong. The noise is there all the time, not just on...


first thing to come to mind is a wheel bearing, being a noise that 'rumbles'-jacking it up, one wheel at a time and turning by hand might reveal which wheel is making the noise. Does the noise 'change' with speed, or braking? Noises are tough over the internet, but your description leads me to think they need to be checked first.

I have a 2005 Ford focus. I first noticed a rumbling noise which seems to be coming from the front drivers side wheel. If I turn left the noise dies down but I'm not convinced its the wheel bearing. It has...


I have the same problem. I had five new bearings fitted ... one on each wheel and one on the long drive shaft. The noise is now ten times worse so I would guess a faulty "new" bearing being fitted. Ford say that it can only be the final drive bearings in the gearbox now which means an exchange gearbox (not expensive ... around £350 - £400) but add labour and fitting a new clutch while the opportunity is there, I'm giving £700 a nasty look. If I am in neutral with engine running, the noise is not there. If I coast out of gear (with clutch in or out), the noise is there ... can only be the wheel bearings or gearbox driveshaft bearings.

Rumbling noise when in 2/3/4 gear


When you think the engine is really powerful even my dads one makes that sound. I think it's the parts like airbags, handbrake area which have degraded due to Aging.

Trouble changing gears


It sounds like it hasn't been setup right, and needs adjusting, there is an allen key bolt on the top of the pedal, try adjusting it here first, if it doesn't cure it then adjusdt it ontop of the gearbox
