My 2011 outlander sport is whining when driving, not on

Customer Question

My 2011 outlander sport is whining when driving, not on startup and higher tone at higher speed. One mechanic believes that it may be the start of losing lower gears in the aoutomatic transmission. Does this sound right?

HI,

Ok, there are a couple of possible causes - gears in the transmission or the bearings in the differential that the front cv shafts go through. This is easy enough for a shop to diagnose which. Put up on a lift with someone in the vehicle, crank engine and put in gear. Accelerate it as another tech listens at the differential where the shafts go thru with a mechanic's stethoscope and do the same at the transmission. At whichever the noise is amplified thru the stethoscope, that is the culprit.
