I've got a 1995 toyota sx manual, and I've noticed my transmission whines quietly in 1st gear whether I'm accelerating or decelerating, and whines the loudest in 2nd gear. It sounds a bit like a low whistle. I can't hear this noise in any other gears. Now I've seen videos of people driving my type of celica, (the 1995 - 1998 model) and I've noticed that the celica in the video whines a little in 2nd gear. Is this what they all do? Is this a problem that may be linked with the transmission clunk in my other post? (this is my 1st celica & I've only had it for 3 weeks)

Step 1. Remove partner from car and recheck fault.

Are you certain it is the gbox? not being a smart ass just there are so many other things that can cause a whining noise. basically impossible for anyone to know with out experiencing it themselves. That being said.

if the gearbox is whining under accell/decell its bearing noise. If this is the case it will probably be more noticeable under harsh down gearing with higher revs. Try doing a fluid flush. Many older manuals seem to get neglected very severely in terms of g/box oil
