If you are able have some one start the car and put it in gear if you look under the front you should be able to see the drive shafts going to each wheel,if one of these is spinning you have a broken cv joint,if not the problem is in the transmission.

N16 manual makes a whiring noise when slowing down from 60kph in 4th, stops when put into nuetral


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.

95 Buick lesabre making loud grinding noise when starting. Once started runs and drives fine no noises


Yes, you are probably right about the spacer or shim. A salvage yard should have lots of them for little or nothing. When you remove the starter for the spacer, check the drive gear end of the starter for severe wear. If it is chewed off very bad, have a new drive gear put on, or replace the starter.

2004 hyundai sant fe clutch makes grinding/whining noise when trying to shift gears. Just replaced the clutch 2 years ago. 107,000 miles


Does clutch grind or does it grind as you put into gear? If as you put into gear then , Transmission needs new sycros.

Starter makes a grinding noise. and wont start changed starter and have the same problem. changed crank position senser and it worked for a while. changed it again but didnt fix the problem.


if the starter is making a grinding noise when you turn the key, it's one of several possiblites. 1. Bad Starter. 2. Bad flywheel. 3. You need starter shims that fit between the starter and the motor. Most starters will bolt straight up but sometimes the gears get too close so you need to shim them apart.
