Does anyone else notice a kind of, transmission whir in there cars? I am talking about city driving, you pull away from a light and it makes a kind of, humming whirr up until like 3000 RPM or so.

Is this normal, or is my torque converter going out?

Mine does this all the time too. It feels fine to me but sometimes the tranny pulsates when in reverse and the odd time in drive. Weird.

Mine makes the same sound. I think it is from something an accesory on the motor tho because it does it when I rev it up (yours probally does too). Never really looked into what caused it but its fine.

Mine is only on acceleration.

Its a lot more noticiable under acceleration. I know mine does it real bad when I stop on a really steep hill and start moving again. Its natural.
