asked by on September 25, 2017

Whenever I accelerate from a roll or take my foot off of the gas my transmission makes a small squeal. But when I accelerate from a stop it doesn't do this.any suggestions.

My car has 50000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you believe your transmission is making abnormal noises, I would recommend having it inspected by a qualified professional as soon as possible. This will avoid any potential damages that could be caused by whatever is making the sound.
