Hows it going WF?
If you said good, I wish I could say the same
If you said bad, youre not alone.
I just installed my front drive shaft again after taking it of because i thought it was causing a noise. Well that noise was detonation in the engine.
After putting the drive shaft back on, I've got a whine. Now, usually when you change something, and something starts happening differently, its usually a result of you changing something. But personally, ive never heard of a drive shaft whining...
What do I mean by whine? purse your lips together like you are about to whistle, but dont, only blow out air. it sounds kinda like that, but more of a whine than an air leak.
This noise only happens at say, 30 mph and up. it doesnt seem to have any corelation with the A/C being on, radio, turning, or even the clutch being pushed in..But tonight, I noticed if i have it in 5th gear, and i take it out, as if i have to turn, the whine gets quieter.. This is what has led me to beleive it is the transmission, as its obviously not engine related if it doesnt do it at idle, or while reving. and not part of the outer ware because if I take it out of 5th, it gets slightly quieter.
Here is the video the whine is barely audible, but seems to be noticed once i take it out of 5th before I rev the engine.
Could it just need new oil?
All feedback is appretiated!
Edit* after watching the Vid on my computer, it is DEFINATELY audible after i take it out of 5th the last time. at about 1:50. its more of a ringing/whine sound.
Edit 2** if you really want to get personal about the noise, it sounds similar to you trying to breathe through your nose when there's stuff in it! Ha!
