Why is there a whining noise when you take your foot off the gas pedal?

On my 99 Montana it turned out to be an exhaust leak in the catalytic converter. This is additional comment to above question about a whine noise from another person.

I have no solution yet, but overdrive lock up stopped functioning in "D" and it now "whines" with change to engine speed, especially noticable going up and down hills as load changes. This noise starts after about 20 minutes of driving when everything gets up to temperature. Putting the transmission into "3" out of "D" and it will quieten down a lot, which takes the lock up overdrive out of action. Yes, transmission still runs ok and has for 8,000 plus miles. Seems ok but I suspect it may cause problems or transmission failure eventually.

PS: Transmission has 177,000 miles at this time.

If this is a general noise, it could be the transaxle. When you are accelerating, the engine is pushing the gears, and when you let go of the pedal, the vehicle starts to shift back down. If this is an engine noise, it could be predetonation or a valve problem.

My 98 Ford Explorer eddie bauer edition as started to make this whining noise when im accelerating.. it stops when i take my foot off the gas...what is going on?

That could be any variety of things, of a combination of them, it would be best if you take your car to a trusted mechanic.

take your foot off the gas pedal.

Get a tune up....the popping noise is caused by excess fuel being burned in the exhaust system,you cant hear it until you take your foot off the gas and the back pressure is reduced...

Either your gas pedal is stuck to the floor or you are going downhill.

Take your foot off the gas pedal and gently coast back onto the road.

The belts generally don't make a whining noise. They squeak. The whine is probably the tensioner or the alternator. Listen closely you should be able to tell where the noise is coming from. You can also take off the belt and roll each component and feel for bearing crunching.

The first appearance of a two-wheeled riding machine with pedals was in 1865. The first pedal bicycle was named Velocipede, which is Latin for fast foot.

Yes, there are three: * Dorsal veinous arch (top of the foot, where you take a pedal pulse). * Posterior Tibial Artery (at the ankle) * Anterior Tibial Artery (also at the ankle).

first, you take your right or left foot and gently apply pressure to the gas pedal

sounds like bad break light switch. your break pedal has a switch that turns on your break lights when you press on your breaks and off when you take your foot off the pedal.

Take your foot and put it under the brake pedal and pull up the pedal a little. The pedal for some reason is getting stuck and keeping the lights on. I've seen a few neons have this same problem.

the brake switch is just above the pedal.they are usually white. when you depress the pedal it opens the switch and when you take your foot off the pedal it closes the switch.

Don't apply the brakes, take your foot off of the gas pedal and allow the car to slow down by itself until traction is achieved.

1) turn key just to the ON position (not start) 2)fully depress the gas pedal 3 times 3) take your foot off the gas pedal and turn the key to start

Take that noise outside, Private! What was that noise? Noise is unwanted sound.

carburetor problems, clogged fuel filter, or the fuel pump starting to go south.
