Loud High Pitched Whine from the Rear
Okay, so on to the next problem. Driving down the road today, about 35-45. REALLY loud annoying high pitched whine coming from the rear of the car. Intermittent. Not constant under acceleration. Rear differential whine? Not a dull roar like bearings, but a high pitched whine. Did I mention LOUD?
Let me guess: since the woman that owned this car before me didn't do ANY preventative maintenance, it probably needs the rear diff fluid changed, right?
Update: Drove it again moments ago on a short trip, and no whine. Will change the rear diff fluid this weekend along with EVERYTHING ELSE already on my plate to do.
