Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix

Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

My 96 baleno sadan has a wind in the gearbox

double posted.
i think you mean Whine? noise.?
whines in what gear.??????? PRNDL?>>>>
whines parked or only moving or both?
is tranny A/T or M/T auto or stick????????????????????????????
my guess is auto.
if the auto whines at any time it's low on fluid, ? or too much (air trubulance caused) or bad a tranny
the problem is many folks don't read the operators guide on how to check ATF levels. and do it wrong, and over fill it big time.
causing what is called airation of the fluid, that in turn, destroys the bearings in said tranny. RTM and do it right.

in the usa we have this $4 manual.
in the usa this car is called the Esteem.

see transmission page for tranny level checks.
on newer cars you must read the FSM to find this out.

Just had a tranny flush. Tranny was whining coming to a stop, the overdrive kept shuting off and felt like it was goin into 1st gear. it was in drive but felt like it was in 1st gear while accelerating....

i do feel this gearbox has had its day and needs a rebuild ,they do wear out and once the oil goes a funny colour then no amout of flushing will cure it ,its done its life end of story ,exchange box or fit a manual gearbox

Whine from 2005 corolla automatic transmission

Have the tranny serviced with fluid change and filter, if noise it still there it is the torque converter . Have the dealer fix it ,and have it on paper with dealer invoice when it is done. Do all this before warranty expires. IT IS NOT USUAL for any car, Toyota included, to have tranny whine!!!!!

Whining sound from under van only when i push the gas.

The serpentine belt is the most common cause for whining sound when accelerating, try to understand if noise is coming from serpentine belt.

Also check power steering belt under steering column, and also the rotor and chain, thei do not make whining noise , but can make noise when accelerating.

The belt is first suspect.
