1.8 Whining noise in all gears after overrev - volvos60T5SE
Hi there,

i was with one of my friends the other night, he decided 2 idiotically race a "whiz kid" off at a set of traffic lights!!!
When changing from 2nd gear up, he accidentally selected 1st gear and lifted the clutch! The needle on the rev counted went past the stop and it must have hit at least 10,000 RPM bearing in mind the red line is at about 7,000. The car now whines in all gears and it is getting gradually worse, can anyone suggest what the problem is? I'm guessing he's ruined the gearbox.

Cheers

A Zafira B (2005 on) must still be under warranty so why not let a Vauxhall dealer diagnose the whine?

And it goes without saying that your friend should NOT to mention to them what he was doing just prior to the noise occuring.

I assume the ECU doesn't record maximum revs anywhere for later download?

A lot of ECU's record the max RPM as it is an excellent 'Get Out' clause for the manufacturer. Regards Peter

It would likely have set a code;

P0219 - "Engine overspeed condition; incorrect gear change."
