    This thread helped me diagnose my own whine. - https://forum.ih8mud.com/60-series-wagons/196873-fj-62-whinning.html I was having the exact same problem.

    I originally found this thread many moons ago while trying to diagnose my own whine. When it was starting I was the only person who could hear it. To me it sounded faintly like a small two stroke bike riding next to me. I could not hear it from the passenger seat. It finally got so loud that I would have to turn the radio up to drown it out. In the end it sounded like a swarm of bees were under the car.


    This was KKT's Idler Shaft.

    So more than a year later..

    Here is my own Idler Shaft – Looks familiar huh?

    I went to Mudraks for the t-case rebuild because I know better than to do this type of work on my own.

    While they were under the cruiser they cleaned the transmission pan

    Did a new gasket on the oil pan to hopefully fix my annoying oil leak.

    Mudraks Rocks! Gary is super cool.

    Looks great and I don't hear any whine! We switched motor oil to Redline Synthetic - also went synthetic in the transfer case and transmission. For a shake down drive we drove to Monterey and back for the weekend from SF!

    I think I will drive it to work to morrow just because..

    5/6/09 update - the oil leak has been fixed 100% by changing the oil pan gasket!

    Cool.

    Mudrak's is a good shop, not surprised you got good service.

    Was your t-case run low on oil?

    Yeah Mudraks is top notch.

    As far as I know it never ran low, but I don't really remember checking it myself between oil changes. I try to stay current on most preventative maintenance with recommended fluid change intervals and such. I keep lots of records. I suppose it could have run low it's definitely possible. The local shop I use is pretty good at checking this type of stuff when he has it.
