Why are you whining Lenny?

Post  JamieSaysMikeyIsACoconut! on Mon Sep 17, 2012 6:07 pm

Hey dudes

Driving home yesturday I noticed Lenny the Lupo's started to have a bit of a whining noise when we get up to about 60-70.

I've tried in all gears and seems like you can only really hear it in 4th/5th gear.

Any ideas what it could be? would the gearbox oil be first to check?

Thanks muchly! Smile

Gearbox oil would be a good start.

Might also be a wheel bearing.

Does it change tone with road speed or engine speed?

Not to be the bearer of bad news but these are known for weak gearboxes. but do check fluid and bearings first

In that cause, thicker oil and louder stereo.

lol thanks guys!

With regards to the
"Does it change tone with road speed or engine speed?"

Think its more engine, faster it goes the louder it gets, I'll have to take one of you out at the next meet so you can have a listen.

In the meantime I have just purchased a quick fix......... Breakdown Cover!! Laughing
