new sound my truck learned to make...whining sounds...maybey tranny

Alright, I'm not sure where this is coming from, but it sounds like maybe the tranny. Anyway, it makes a sound when I am slowing down (wheter in gear or not). Anyway, it sounds comparable to the sound a jet engine makes as its is being shut off. It only does this starting about 25-30 mph and slower. And it seems to go away mostly after about 30 minutes of driving. Anyone have any ideas???

Oh, its a 3.0 manual trans. if that makes a difference, or helps.

sounds like diff gears, have you changed them?? messed with the fluid?

check the fluid first, if youve changed the gears, then the lash is not set correctly

there is a fill plug on the side, should remove with a 3/8 ratchet extension, stick your finger in, the fluid should be right up at the hole, if not, add some until it is.

There's a plug you can check from the back of the diff, it's a 3/8" ratchet hole i beleive..

if it's a milkshake in there, time to replace the gear oil..
