Need Help with Drivetrain Noises
Posted 23 February 2005 - 08:25 PM
The first problem is a whining noise heard when accelerating. The whine starts slightly above 5 to 10 mph and increases in pitch as I accelerate. If I remove my foot from the gas pedal and coast the noise immediately goes away but returns as soon as I begin to accelerate again. If I shift to neutral while coasting then rev the engine the noise is not present. Nor is the noise present when in park and revving the engine. I recently had the rubber boots replaced on the front driveshafts because one was cracked. Could this be related? Any ideas what may be causing this whine?
My second problem is a noise that is heard at slow speeds. It sounds like pebbles inside of hubcaps but the car does not have hubcaps. Another description is that of a worn U-joint on a driveshaft. The noise is most obvious as you slowly accelerate from a stop or while braking just before stopping. If I go very slow (walking speed) the noise has a cyclic rhythm.
I've inspected the transmission and differential fluids and both are at the proper level. Any suggestions?
