Whining noise in 2nd gear and wide throttle
Posted 23 January 2013 - 02:21 PM
Like the title says its only when I accelerate at wide throttle and only in one specific gear (I'm not sure if it's second or third?). It sounds like a bearing noise or a whistling noise.
Is it likely a transmission noise or could it also be a front diff bearing? Trying to guage whether the likely fix will be a 4EAT swap?
Thanks for reading.

I'm an expert on front pinion noise at this point
check out the pinion noise vids I have on youtube at CNY1RC.

I'm just kinda wondering why its only in the one gear. I can also hear it when the transmission downshifts during an acceleration too like on the freeway.

The fact it only makes noise WFO is a hopeful sign.

With Him the Tabs for the air box were broken. At wide open throttle this would cause an air leak, hence a whistle.
So check to make sure your airbox (air filter) is seated if you have touched it lately.

Thanks for the advice, I did have it opened a while ago so I will check that first. Its also due for an ATF change as well so I'll do that too and see how it goes. I guess when it is in that gear and WOT it can make a noise and when it shifts, the RPM drops so that may be the reason it only does it at that time.
Thanks for all of the help!
