Well, you say the noise is in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th, and I assume this is an overdrive tranny with the overdrive in 5th.

This means your 4th gear is more than probably direct (1:1) ratio.

Meaning you have a bad countershaft bearing(s), or gears...

In direct, your countershaft still spins but carries no power/torque to the wheels (it is basically just freewheeling), input shaft speed/torque goes directly/is locked to the output shaft, so you don't hear the noise; in any other gear, where the countershaft bears a load, you hear the bad bearing or gears.

Either way your tranny has serious internal issues and needs to be rebuilt before it destroys itself.

1999 silverado1500 5.3L...tranny shifts fine from 1st to 2nd, but when shifting to 3rd, it's like neutral. Could it be solenoids inside tranny?


COULD BE FAULTY 2 -3 SHIFT SOLENOIDS ALSO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.LOW FLUID LEVEL WILL CAUSE NO OVER DRIVE CONDITIONS. HAVE TRUCK CODE SCAN LOOK FOR CODE FIRST.DONT SPEND LOT OF MONEY GUESING.

1st 2nd 3rd gear whining noise but stops in 4th and so on,


this would be an internal bearing inside the gearbox on the input shaft......you have the shft coming in form the engine, and the input shaft houses 1,2, 3rd and 4th gears.....the 5th gear is located on an intermediate shaft.....and then you have the output shaft...now if you had said all gears i would have said output shaft bearing......and if you had said 5th gear only, then this would be the intermedaite gear.....

but you are only saying 1,2 and 3......why its not happening in fourth is that the gear ratios that the shafts turn in correlation to thre gearing changes as you get to 4, like on a 10 speed bicycle but in 4th it is a 1:1 ratio, so no excessive loads on the shafts are noticeable....

This will require a transmission overhaul......

Ford transmission wines in 1st 2nd 3rd revers, no


It is a 5 speed manual transmission? If it is noisey in all gears except for 4th, then the problem is countershaft bearings.

1994 ranger in 3rd and 5th gears, it has a loud whine to it.


Mine has a high pitched whistle at high rpms and I can't figure it out. But mines def not the tranny. I'm thinking it's a vacuum line somewhere. It's a 97 2.3l manual. The colder it is the louder...

I own 1994 Acura Integra with a 5 speed manual transmission that recently started to develop a gear whine between shifting 1st to 2nd gears and 3rd gears--less so between 4th and 5th gears. What do you...


If the whine is there than the main bearing is already worn adding fluid will not save it, you will have to swap it or rebuild it. sorry i know you were hoping for something better.

Providing there are no oil leaks at all, some transmission stabilizer may help. Any experience i've had with a whining 5 speed, is not good. Usually it's a bearing on it's way out. Try some of this, and see if it makes any difference. RISLONE® TRANSMISSION STABILIZER

1998dodge1500 wont shift from 2nd to 3rd unless I let off the gas


Well, I should be asking for more information, but since I am now on my 5th, yeah, 5th transmission in my 95 1500 Ram I have come to learn a little bit about them. Chrysler had a bad problem with their trannies in the 94's & 95's. They then made a change in 96, but that didn't solve the problem. So here goes my attempt to help you out.
Have you checked you tranny fluid level? Very important. A transmission kind of works under the same principal as a jet boat. Meaning, it pumps the fluid through the transmission much the same way a jet boat pumps water through it to move the boat, but in this case the fluid power is directed through several lines causing the gears to move. You switch gears when there is a certian amount of pressure on the modulator to divert the fluid to another area.
Long story short: Check your fluid, not only the level BUT the fluid. Are you seeing any metal in it? Dodge had a problem with the webbing of their torque converters flaking off, causing transmission cooliant lines to plug up. This same metal chips, shavings, etc. were damaging the face of the clutches, and plugging up modulators. Check your fluid. I would probably say change your fluid and transmission filter. It's not that big of a job if you have a place you can work on your vehicle. Be careful when putting you transmission pan back on. Make sure you tighten the bolts in a crosswise manner, and tighten them snug, BUT not over tight. That will cause leaks.
Another point I will make. Check for vacuum leaks, this could very well be your culprit too.
I'd start with that first.
Good luck, let us know how you come out.
