i probally don't have the answer...but someone will.
my 98 1500 318 auto just done something similar,but the whine was loud in every gear but neutral and tranny also wouldn't upshift unless I let off the gas.i wound up replacing all the internal tranny electronics....cost me $145 on ebay,and was easy to do.
plus fluid and filter more whine and smooth shifts.

heres the kit I bought

are all these electrons under the tranny pan once it is off ?

yes...I had to remove the pan,and valve body....ive never done it before....figured it shouldn't be that bad.

so that kit got ride of the whiining noise completly?

igotit 04-04-2013 03:57 PM

on my truck...yes.
but there are other things that cause whine,the pump could be going out,or the torque converter going out.i just figured for $ was worth
replacing on a chance that it may solve my tranny also had problems upshifting out of gears.
plus my fluid was realy bad,lots of metal shavings in my pan.
but with 162k miles....I have no whine in any gear since ive replaced those parts.

my govoner pressure solenoid....after pulling it and inspecting it,the little screen on the end was completely cloged up with gunk,im assuming it was starving for fluid....possibly causing the whining noise.
my tranny whined in all gears and was quiet in neutral and I drove the whine got louder.
