    I have a 2004 Limited with 105,000 miles on it. There is a strong and loud whining sound that changes in frequency when accelerating or decelerating. Whine sound is the same whether the car is in gear or not. Seems related to front steering as whine is altered during when wheel is turned, whine is worse when the vehicle is cold.

    I have a 2003 Chrysler T&C with 84000 miles. I replaced the pwer steering pump and replaced the fluid. Put in some Lucas rack and pinion oil in and the whine is still there. What's next???

Thanks all, turns out that the fluid was leaking from the power steering system somewhere, brought the fluid level back to normal and the problem was solved, still leaking slowly and get the whine on start up, but goes away after a few minutes. Fluid must be draining from where the whine is generated, (Pinion gear?). Whine disappears when fluid warms and is pumped back through the power system.

Sounds like you need to replace your power steering pump, or add fluid, your tranny shouldn't whine when its in park... its disengaged!!

Make sure you have enough fluid, and honestly, regardless of the fluid level, change it and put in new transmission fluid. If it's an automatic, change the transmission filter too. You can try adding some Lucas stabilizer as well. If that doesn't do it, you may be looking at a rebuild or replacement.

SOURCE: ax 15 transmission grind after new clutch installation

Take it back to the guy that did the work. Sounds like he's got the pressure plate on crooked putting it in a bind. Whatever it is happened during the installation. That's a given!

The car has an automatic transmission and all of a sudden i had no reverse had no slipping or nothing the drive gears work fine no slipping grinding nothing shifts through all gears just fine


It may just need servicing/adjusting.

Your reverse gear is actually first gear ... when you select reverse another 'cog' fits into the toothed wheels to change the direction of first gear ... to give you reverse...

It may be a sticky valve or just a bit of adjustment (workshop job..) that is required.

What you can try ..

Start the car ... move the lever through all the positions several times (foot on brake..). Keep your foot on the brake and then put it in reverse and rev the car. Hard!

Try doing it several times.

An auto transmission works on valves opening and closing. Reverse gear - in comparison with the forward gears - is seldom used. The reverse valve can 'stick'. Try forcing it to open ... frighten it ... but keep your foot on the brake...

1990 Ford Bronco II manual transmission extremely hard to shift will not go into reverse


90 Ford Bronco II: You have to put it in whichever gear you want it in before you start it or it wont shift at all. Then once you are going its extremely hard to shift into the other gears. Reverse is the only gear that sounds like its grinding.

What is it when in reverse the automatic transmission on a 1999 Camaro grinds?


Reverse is not "synchronized" forward gears are, so it does make some noise, try shifting to 2nd before engaging reverse to slow gear rotation and limit gear clash or grind.

Grind when putting into reverse, hard to gp into 1st gear


When it is hard to go into gear or grinding when going into gear is an indication of worn synchronizers. The only solution is to take it to a mechanic that specializes in transmissions and having the synchronizers replaced. Sometimes a weak clutch and clutch plate can make it hard to go into the lower gears, you may want to examine these first.

Tranny trouble??


TRANSMISSION FLUIDS CAN BE CAUSED BY ONLY A COUPLE OF THINGS. MOST COMMON BEING A WORN OR BROKEN SEAL. THE TRANSMISSION SEALS ON MOST CARS ARE MADE FROM RUBBER OR METAL. BEING IN ALL KIND OF EXTREME TEMPS FOR YEARS ON END NOT TO MENTION THE PARTS MOVING AROUND THEM WILL EVENTUALLY CAUSE LEAKS. ALSO FAULTY INSTALLATION (OF A SEAL) CAN ALSO CAUSE A LEAK TO HAPPEN. THE ONLY OTHER THING THAT CAN CAUSE A LEAK TO MY KNOWLEGE WOULD BE IF YOU BOTTOMED OUT A CAR LOW ENOUGH THAT IT CAUSES DAMAGE TO THE TRANS CASE OR PAN. One cause of grinding when shifting into reverse is improper adjustment of the clutch linkage. If the adjustment is correct when the clutch is depressed the gears should stop turning and eliminate the grinding. Make sure there is some free play in the linkage when the clutch is not depressed. Most manual transmissions do not have a sychronized reverse gear. When you try to go into reverse from neutral, the transmission countershaft (which is linked to the pilot shaft) is still turning. The main shaft (which is linked to the tailshaft) is not turning. Therefore, since there is no sychronizer (or clutch brake like on a heavy truck tranny) the sliding cluctch gear (splined to the main shaft) grinds against the main shaft gear (floating over the main shaft but meshing its respecive countershaft gear through the reverse idler). The slider's function is to lock the main shaft gear to the main shaft thereby transmitting power to the rear wheels in the desired gear ratio (depending on which main shaft gear is locked to the main shaft). The way to cure this is to select a forward gear to stop the transmission and then go to reverse, all the while holding the clutch down. If it still won't go into gear you can either slip the clutch ever so slightly to "bump" the gears while gently pushing the stick into reverse (not too hard!! you can bend or break forks!! OUCH!!) or go into neutral, let the clutch all the way out, go into a forward gear and then reverse.

Grinding when in reverse and tries bogging down at lights


stop shifting so hard. your reverse gear is the same exact gear as your first, so if you shift hard and grind that gear a little then reverse will be harder to get into. you probably need your transmission rebuilt the harder your engine has to work the more its going to bogg down
