need help with my trans.

Post by Dstrahler » Thu Sep 07, 2017 1:29 pm

I have a noise coming form my trans. its a buzzing sound like when you go in reverse but when I'm going forward. I will hear it for a week then it goes away for about two weeks. If some knows what the problem is please let me know. I've been hearing this sound for the past two mouths.

If it's the "helicopter" noise it's the sign your input shaft bearing is going bad.

It is not the helicopter sound. It is a loud buzzing sound that last a few days then goes away for a couple weeks. their our no lights ( wrench or check engine ) on. their our no codes. My mechanic thinks it is a throw out bearing going bad. But would that set off a warning light?

You don't have a throw out bearing. The throw out bearing is only used on a manual trans and fits on the fork and presses the pressure plate away from the clutch disc when you step on the clutch.

Well, if my mechanic thinks it's a throw out bearing I think I need a new mechanic!

Well if he meant it sounded like a throw out bearing that's one thing, if he meant it was a throw out bearing....yes!
