Thanks, ***** ***** from outside the vehicle listened around to see where the noise appears the loudest?
Like under the vehicle or under the hood for example?
Does howling noise describe it best?
Is it effecting the vehicle operation?
Thanks for the details. I believe the noise is coming from the transmission or transmission area. Confirm the transmission mount and the surrounding exhaust mounts are good. If so then get it on a rack so you can listen to the trans pan. Within the trans the noise can come from a front pump failure or a concern with the valve body.
Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.
If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.
I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.
Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.
If low fluid were to blame then the damage as a result from it has already been done. Low fluid alone can not create this noise.
With no symptoms, no codes would be stored in this event.
I see no reason to smell the fluid since I do not believe there is clutch material burnt which is what would cause a odor in the fluid.
The age of fluid can cause it to appear to have a burnt odor. If trans oil is burnt it will no longer be ruby red. It will be brownish or blackish and smell kind of like fish.
What does it smell like, oil, wiring or something else?
Can you get under the vehicle to see if you can source the origin of the noise and odor?
Since both the noise and odor occur together can you pay attention to the air suspension compressor.
It is not the air suspension compressor then, its on the passenger side behind the front bumper. Can you feel around while its occurring to see if you an feel the source of this noise and odor. The compressor and transmission are the only things that would be effected only occurring in forward gears based on all you have told me.
Have some one help, holding it in drive while you feel around with your hands and ears trying to find the source.
Its coming from the heater core hose connected to the engine and firewall?
If that is the case and its still effected by drive and reverse use then I would check the engine and trouns mounts to see if the engine is flexing over in drive excessive.
However that does not explain the electrical odor.
