My truck whines in 1-3 gear and the closest thing i can relate it to would be a m22 rockcrusher, just a little more quiet. It only does it when there is a load on the transmission, whether it be me accelerating or decelerating in gear. I was reading a thread on here saying that a bad pocket bearing in the transmission could be to blame? Its been doing this for as long as i can remember, even back when the original owner had it. I just changed the transmission fluid and it's the same. I really like the sound, doesn't bother me at all and the trans shifts fine, i was just wondering if this needed to be addressed or is nothing to worry about.
