    Hi all. I have got a quite noticeable whine coming from what i think is the gearbox of my 2011 4.4TDV. it’s done just over 100,000 miles and i have heard rumours on here of horror stories on L322 at around 80,000m. Am I about to enter a world of expensive pain?

    The 80K horror stories relate to the earlier diesel with the GM box.
    Even so you may well be about to enter a world of pain. Whining is IMO more likely to come from Diffs or transfer box than the auto box or occasionally the wife:cool:
    First step is to check all the oil levels.

    Thanks Keith, The wife is now whining because she is driving it and can hear it. Also commented that she thinks it has slipped a gear or struggled to change occasionally. The front diff has been changed, due to wading on salisbury plain and then not servicing the diff afterwards - you live and learn - but the rear diff’ is original.
    Oil has been changed in the transmission system in the last 2 years, 20,000 miles as i also had to replace the oil pump not long ago.
