5 speed transmission whine..?? '97 tacoma v6..
Hey everyone...I recently took a 97 tacoma for a test drive that a close friend is thinking about buying..It performs just about flawlessly except for one "potential problem..??" The truck seems to have some sort of transmission whine that seems like it gets louder by the time your into 4th gear as well as being the noisyest in 5th..It can be heard in the the lower gears, but just not as loud....If you push the clutch in the sound goes away all together, and it also seems the "loudest" when de-celling with the truck in 4th/5th gear...Its not really a dry bearing type of sound, almost more of a teapot whine/whistle( just not as high pitched)...Other than that it shifts fine through the gears, but we were just wondering how noisy/whiney these 5 speeds are in general.....Oh, vehicle is a v6,4x4,with 93k on it btw......Thanks for any help/guidence..!!
