Have your transmission inspected for low transmission fluid and condition. It sounds from what you have described to be a transmission low on fluid and your transmission pump is whining from lack of fluid.
Try not to run the car to hard until you have checked the level of the transmission fluid and low fluid will damage the transmission due to lack of lubrication through out.
Thank you for using Fixya and keep us posted

Won't turn over... just makes a clicking sound... and a wierd humming sound.


Try cleaning your terminals at the battery, even if not corroded. In my years as an alarm/radio installer I have come across this problem constantly, especially on GM vehicles.

Car wont start-not a gig


it sounds as if you might have to replace the battery, if your battery is shot you can still get a boost and the car will run because the alternator produces electricity which should take car of the cars functions and top up the charge on the battery. if the battery is no longer taking the charge or not holding it as soon as you shut it off it will not have enough power to start the starter. A lot of automotive place will do a check on your battery if you take it to them.

please note that i'm not a mechanic and this is just based on my own experiance
