Last night i started the car and as I was driving I noticed a weird sound coming from the car. It sounded like when you roll an RC car when its turned off. I have a feeling its my tranny cuz it just doesn't feel right when I drive. What do you guys think it is? My check engine light turned on two nights ago but turned off could it possibly be from that? Is it time for me to swap tranny to manual? :D

whining sounds can be the rear end.

Rear end bushing whine I'd say.

How do I know? I've got a Dana 35 and a Dana 44 in my backyard that make that same sound, only the bearings are outside bushings, not inside bushings ;)

mine was the pinion gear, (meaning new rear end)

BMWs don't have Pinion bushings? Or uh, just buy new internals?

aright.... i've noticed that it only makes the sound when its cold... when it warms up its gone? well the sound comes and goes and its coming from the rear end.
