I wouldn't worry if everything is functioning properly, no metal shavings In the fluid?

How is the fluid level ??

Also - Do you have any leaks - Such as from the axle seals, that would cause the fluid to get too low ??

I have a similar problem but the whine in my car comes from the passenger seat :thefinger:
