My 2002 forester has started making a gh pitched wining

Customer Question

my 2002 forester has started making a high pitched wining noise over 2000 rpm's when the transmission is engaged. I was told it was probably the trani was going out. I look for a fluid stick to see if it had enough fluid but couldn't find it. what do you suggest?

Hi there,

Does the car have to be moving for the noise to happen?
