Question about 1992 Ford Ranger

2 Answers

High pitched noise and Rattling in gear box.

When I accelerate for a long time, on a highway for example. I start to hear a high pitch noise. It doesn't sound super bad. It starts out quite and gets louder. If i stop accelerating it stops immediately, but starts doing it again after a bit. I also have a second problem. Rattling in my gear box when i go over bumpy roads. It's super annoying, The noise is coming right from under my stick.

That could be a loose belt. Sometimes it is caused by a vacuum leak. It could also be a transmission sound. Check the transmission oil level. That sometimes causes a whining sound.
Hope this helps.

Sound like main shaft bearing assuming it is manual( if it comes on all the gears)

if it is automatic it must be your torque converter bearing

SOURCE: Loud rattling noise while accelerating

First thing i would try...... ISOHEET, Red bottle..... allows water to be mixed into the fuel and be burnt out of the tank.
get a good qaulity fuel injection cleaner, if you can locate the brand MALCO, i found it quite succesful..... and go with a full tank of premium fuel such as ammoco or shell......do not use yellow bottle of heet

My brand new 2009 Highlander has this high pitch whining noise right from the start. It happens when decelerating, like if you go on a little hilly road, once you get to the peak and then just let gas...


Your noise is called over-run and its in the gearbox which is also the diff and thats the noise you are getting .
Its the meshing up of the crown wheel and pinion and the only way out of it is to replace the GEAR BOX ASSY with a S/Hand one as you dont get to many doing that noise.
Let me know how you get on. RON

High pitched electronic/dentist drill sound when accelerating.


Probably the front differential, your probably hearing the famous differential gear whine. Change the oil, put Lucas for gears in it. You can get a hand operated oil pump to **** it out through the dip stick if it has one. Then fill it with the recommended amount.

High Pitched noise


I had a high pitch noise, didn't sound like it came from the "underside". Turns out it was one of fans that had little chips in the blades? My Audi dealer replaced it, and it's fine now.
