I have a 96 ford f350 with a 7.3 diesel. The speedomiter stopped working after a brief whining sound. Then my ABS light came on and my over drive light started flashing and the transmishion started to shift hard and not go into 3rd gear all at the same time.
I was told to replaced the speed control sensor on top of the rear differantal. So I did.
The problem still exists. What else can I do.

    This does not help. I do not have a speedometer cable.

You may have spun the speedometer cable gear off in the transmission. Try replacing the speedometer cable.

    What has been placed in the hole to your transmission where your speedometer cable would normally go?

Whining is typically one of two things. The power steering fluid is low or the water pump is on its way out.

Whining sound comeing from engine

It maybe the problem of V8 6.5 turbo diesel. To use the turbo success, the car must be reached the high certain speed. So it maybe the normal that whining sound coming from engine. Diagnostic engine regularly.

Vehicle will not start, normally when ignition is in on position there is a whining noise for a few seconds, I wait until the whining stops and then start the vehicle. Now, when ignition is on on position...

Hi. The whining noise you hear is the fuel pump priming the fuel lines. If you don't hear the sound anymore then your fuel pump has stopped working. Check your fuses. Also look for a relay for the fuel pump. The relay will usually be in a large box under the hook that says fuse and relay panel or something similar. If the fuses and relay are working the the pump will probably need to be replaced.

The engine makes a whirring sound when the air is on. The sound is quite brief, but when it is occurring there is power loss from the engine, the sound is very rythmic in its occurence.

The A/C compressor robs alot of Horse power from the engine...
Defrost will engage the compressor too...
The whirring may be the coolant fans engaging (drawing air accross the A/C Condenser ).

All of this falls into the ' normal opporation ' catagory , and should not warrant any worries.

Wynding noise under dash when picking up speed.

Does the winding noise speed nup and slow down with the movement of the car? Does the sound seem like an electrical whine or a mechanical whine? It could be your speedomiter cable.
