Transmission fluid pump

Transmission Pump Valve --most likely

To resolve all or any issues, you would have
to pull the unit & go thru it ,make the modifications
to the pump & valve body.

All transmissions come new from the factory with
known problems & there are known fixes for all of
them, with kits from Sonnax & Trans-Go

Use Google & You Tube Video to learn about
those issues,there is lots to read on the net.

2006 tacoma whining noise

I never suggest flushing a trans

Just remove the pan & clean

If you want most of the fluid out,
drive it a week or so then drain again.

I suspect the noise is the trans pump,
but don't know exactly how any dirt sediment
flushed into it would cause a noise

Whining when i press gas

normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

98 fatboy engine noise.

Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.

I have purchased a bike which had the Road tech HA90 MP3 / WMA Digital Music Player on it. Okay this has been an ordeal getting it to work. Cannot locate a instruction manual or the operation manual , I relied solely on Internet Search and mostly this web site. Here is what I have done. First used a 4G Micro SD Card - formatted to Fat 32 ...nothing...nothing seen or recognized... err no all sorts of errors...NEXT a friend has a player so rode over checked his card in my player and all is well ...HIS card is a 512 mb.IT WORKS PERFECT !!!! NO 512 SD Cards anywhere...the lowest 4GB. (Unless you order online) I have seen somewhere that someone wrote that 512 was the largest ...then another has wrote nothing over a 2G ...Now since I do not have a manual looked back at catalog page and it came with 64mb ..best of both worlds I have been able to by chance locate a 1GB SD Card locally . They no longer make cards under 4GB or stores do not carry around here, but can get on Amazon...Okay back to the issue. NOW TRYING THE 1GB card in Fat format / then reformat to FAT32 Tried it and the player recognizes the card tells me the number of songs I have on the card , is going thru the motion but NO SOUND.....now what???? I plan to get with friend and check info on his card regarding format etc. since it works, and order a 512 mb card ..HOWEVER Does anyone have the magic potion to offer advice on what to try next??? Thank you
