I am sure your trans level is fine this is very normal problem with 46re transmission cold weather equals thick oil which makes higher pressure, until warmed up then pressure decreases, no noise its a valve body issue there is no real fix and there is no real problem either

What would cause a high pitch whine in a Dodge Dakota only when the weather is cold?

A high-pitched whine in a Dodge Dakota only when the weather is cold might be a normal thing. When the weather gets cold, the belts, starter and alternator need time to warm up. Try a little drop of dish soap on the fan belt to see if this helps quiet the whining.

Why would a 1989 Honda Civic DX 1.t automatic make a clunk when put in reverse if it is cold but work OK when warmed up?

The fluid is thicker when cold so you get a harsher engagement when you put it in reverse. Also, part of that problem is that the transmission is wearing out but it's highly unlikely that you need a rebuild very soon. Check the transmission mount to make sure it's not broken because if it is, it'll torque upwards and bang when it's put in reverse. You can check that by putting it in reverse with your foot on the brake and tapping the gas pedal.

Transmission on your dodge ram is slow to engage when it is cold?

There is a service bulletin out on this problem (NUMBER: 21-015-05, GROUP: Transmission, DATE: September 01, 2005). It seems that fluid will drain from the torque converter after the vehicle sets awhile causing the slow to engage problem. According to Dodge, while it causes customer concern, it is not detrimental to the transmission. There is a new version of a transmission cooler filter which when installed mitigates the problem.

What are signs of trans filter needing to be changed in 87 700r4 trans?

Normally if a transmission filter becomes clogged the pump will whine and usually the transmission will slip and possibly quit pulling after it gets full operating temp. When cold normally the transmission will pull fine and the pump will not whine as loud if it whines at all. The bad is that if the filter is stopped up damage has usually already been done and the debris is usually clutch material or metal. If I owned a auto with a 700R4 the first thing I would do is install a cooler and service the transmission. They have a overheating problem from the factory and that is why they have a locking dipstick and usually a rubber hose added to the vent on top of the transmission diverting the fluid away from the exhaust.

Well if you have checked the transmission fluid levels when its cold and warm, and they are good, then you might want to get the fluid changed and have the transmission ajusted... assuming its an automatic, if its a manual, then it might be the throwout bearing, but i dont know why the temp would affect that.

What could cause a loud belt whine when starting the engine of a Lexus RX 300?

Sounds like the belt is loose. Another possibility is that your water pump is going bad. Sometimes when they set ovrnght for instance it will start to "freez" up a little due to the bearings inside going bad. Hope this helps. It is just impossible to say w/o personally seeing it. There is a problem with the RX300 transmission, when it begins to fail, it will whine when started cold and the sound will decrease as the car warms. It is often confused with another part, but within a short timeframe of days to weeks, the transmission will stop shifting properly, to completely failing.
