Noticed a new sound today when reversing the car - fiesta 1.4 2009 tdci

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, and sorry for creating so many posts.

Today I noticed a new problem with the car.

When going in reverse, I get the normal whine which is also apparent in the first and second gear, but when i reverse uphill the whine gets loader and more like a growl, or maybe more like a whine with much lower pitch than the normal high pitch whine.

What could this be?

The sound does not appear when reversing on a level surface.

I have not tried to release the clutch pedal completely to check if the sound is still there.

This low pitch growl / whine is not heard when going forward. Only in reverse.

Clutch burning under heavy reversing load?

No bad smell, so I would not think so. Isnt it so that usually when that happens, you will have a burnt smell of some kind?

The clutch does not appear to be worn either, as it does not slip or anything like that.

I have been doing some more testing. Definetly not slipping as the engine stalls almost immediately when releasing the clutch in for example the second gear. 

The sound in reverse is related to load. Tried holding the handbrake and the sound started to appear when the clutch was in the middle of fully released and pressed. The wired thing is that the sound went away when more throttle was applied. 

Any ideas?
