Faint whirring noise in third gear?
I searched for whirring gearbox noises, but this seems a bit different:
I can almost feel it more than hear it, it's so faint. When I shift up to third, say 20 mph, I can hear a very faint high speed, high pitched whirring/rattling noise. If I move the shift lever a fraction in the gate, the noise stops. I can feel it through the base of the shifter.
You wouldn't notice it with the radio on. The gearbox has never been exactly smooth. You have to let the synchro take the gear, you can't force it.
I had the gearbox oil changed 2,500 miles ago.
Anything to worry about?
Thanks in advance!
