Does this truck fall into the group that has the transfer case hole. Oil pump wears throught the side of transfer case than oil drips out eventuallt blowing the tranfer case right out of the truck?

My suggestion would be to drop by a reputable transmission shop and let them listen to it

There is a bulletin that says the 4L80E is whinny in first and it's normal. Mine is. The whistling can be the hydroboost unit for the brakes. I get it too once in awhile but I haven't nailed it down. The brakes work fine.

Any chance this stuff is noisier under load like when towing or hauling?

ive been told this before...i just wanna know why it does it? there has too be a reason...some do it and some dont...it hasnt seem too hurt anything so far...i got a bully dog programmer hooked up on performance settings and it shifts really hard and nothing has happened...it did it before it met the chip so i dont know...my buddy says its the torque convertor and you can buy an additive to make it stop but i just wanna know if someone else has had this also and got it figured out. and yes it is a little louder but not by much...i pulled a ten thousand pound trailer with it no problem didnt even really get that hot HAHAHAAH

I will try to find the TSB but I recall it being because of the gear cut. Mine does it. At the same time, part of the whine I was getting was the power steering overheating so I swapped to a plate and fin aux cooler for it and it's gone.

Found it:

4L80E , 4L85E Whine Noise in First and Second Gear - kw accelerate case clash filter first fluid gear noise oil second whine #PI00976A - (Nov 13, 2003)
4L80E, 4L85E Whine Noise in First and Second Gear

.

When servicing the vehicle with the VIN you entered, the following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the described symptoms.

Condition/Concern:
The 4L80E/4L85E automatic transmission may experience a condition of planetary gear whine noise in first and second gear. The planetary gear noise is typically louder in first gear as compared to second.

Recommendation/Instructions:
This planetary gear whine noise should be considered characteristic of the 4L80E/4L85E. The vehicle should be compared to a like unit for comparison before attempting any repairs.

Both of my 4L80's do/did it, my brother in laws trucks does it, I consider it to be normal. I actually hear these trannies do this all the time when I drive next to them.
