In hte last 5 days my tranny has developed a whirring sound that is fairly faint right now. I found that when I put it in neutral I can hear hte throw-out bearing making noise. I thought that I was home free with just the bearing going bad. But, I read another posting that said this is the final drive bearing that's bad.
This tranny leaks. Would the noise be due to low fluid level. (or was the low level the cause of the final drive bearing failure!?)
