well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing
Default RE: the diagnose my problem game! 'whirring' noise said the 'sound' changes volume as speeds change, meaning it gets louder/softer as speed increases/decreases...I'm just guessing the wind resistance may have an effect on that thing thats causing your problem.

Did you remove your air silencer? [8D]

I don't think it's wind resistance... I wasn't going that fast when it made noise.

Nothing was done to the car recently to cause it... something broke or wore out.

GO BEARS! I'm just here so I don't get fined...

Ok.. try checking your driveshaft where it connects to the the tranny and then to the diff. look on either wheel and check for leakage that would signify a worn out axle seal... which could cause you to lose gear oil and make a whinning noise.. jacking the car up would help the process a lot. -Chris

Are you SURE it doesn't matter with gear change? Mine does it in first like a mo fo, then it switches and still does it, but not as bad. Can you get a video for us?

These are some hillarious suggestions. However, I will bet $100 American that it's an axle bearing. Good luck Red.

i'm still betting it's rear-end related. i know dragging brakes don't usually whirr but that might be worth checking out too

Hell Hath Freezeth over...Red is posting in the Tech section [8D]

Seriously though, I'd go with the output/tail shaft on the Tranny. You may need to put a sleeve on the driveshaft where it goes into the tranny. Excessive play could cause that. When it's up in the air, the drive shaft should have a little bit of play (side to side) where the u-joints are at butthepart that goes from theu-joint retainerinto the tranny should be solid.

Another thing to check would be the fluid level of the tranny/rear diff if possible..

Axle bearings could be checked by swerving the car left/right and if the noise gets louder on one side, then it's time for new bearings.. They're not too bad to change, just remember torent /borrown a bearing puller and a good slide hammer...

Do you get any chassis vibration at higher speeds??

My car is making the same sound and just found out yesterday that I have a knot in my front passenger tire. Could this be where the noise is coming from?
