  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,391 miles
After numerous other repairs to this vehicle, it started whining through the first few gear changes. The GM shop said that the torque converter went out and they had to overhaul the transmission. It is still in the shop because after they put everything back together, the whining noise is still there. After 11 days and three tear downs and rebuilds, the mechanic is at a loss as to what is wrong.
