Are you checking the fluid correctly? Car fully warmed up, on a level surface, engine on, in park. Open hood and pull the dipstick, wipe and reinsert and look again. Look on both sides.


Most shops will tell you they can't diagnose the issue without taking the trans apart and once it is apart, you are doing a rebuild, since one component has failed, it's best to rebuild with all new parts while you are in there. Are you sure the whining is from the trans and not the rear diff?
