Another noise question - transmission or engine

5097 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Voila
This board has been great. I have owned the car for only 3 weeks, really like it but there are certainly a lot of quirks and people have been great sharing information.

This has happened twice in the three weeks. I am driving normally in city traffic, come to a stop sign and put in in neutral. Loud whining coming from engine or trans. When I rev the engine the noise stops above 2,000 rpms, comes back below 2,000. I drive it a little longer put it in neutral and noise disappears - normal or serious. Thanks.

Noise and Clutch Wear

I had a similar noise when stationery - a loud whine. My dealer had the car back and (under warranty) replaced the clutch thrust bearing which was a known issue. The new part is a tougher Ferrari one - they also replaced the Clutch disc while they had it apart - all free of charge. The car had about 8k miles on it at the time.

Regarding selecting neutral at lights - I dont think it reduced clutch wear but it will reduce wear on the thrust bearings as it would in any manual clutch car.
