Front diff whines !!
Recently I started to notice a whining sound from the front diff at 45 to 50 MPH speeds, only comes when slightly give it some gas and disappears when letting it off. ,, also disappears quickly after 50 MPH!
Any one faced this problem and got it fixed?
I hope its not a major problem in the diff that might require a rebuild or a whole axle change !
Tomorrow I'm planing to change the oil (just on time, around 17k miles from last change) ,, I'm thinking to open the front cover after draining the oil to look for any clues, .. I'm not experienced mechanically so I would like to get your advices about things to look for or test inside the diff to isolate the problem.
Current mileage : 65k miles
