    drivetrain that whistles

    my car whistle, I think it's the drivetrain, but I'm not sure, and I can not find the cause.


    it whistles when I accelerates, when I released the accelerator, it stops immediately.
    noise with increasing speed.

    all bearing of the drivetrain are new.


    where could it come?

    No, just the bearings.





    It's not the intake.

    I was going to ask the same thing. Sound like a pinion bearing.

    if you changed the pinion bearing you changed the setup on the rear end by taking it out if it is not set up properly it will whine and fail prematurely.

    I have to do a professional, I think it's well done. The noise was there before and it's still there.
