My Ride: 2001 330i
330i automatic gear noise

Got a 2001 330i automatic with 115,000 miles on it and it has been getting a gear/whine sound from the transmission area. Only occurs when the car has been driven for a bit and when it is stopped in "drive" or "reverse". When you put it in neutral or park it stops and when driving it, can't hear it.

Found this clip on youtube from a 330i automatic as well and it sounds similar - it is at the end of the clip. Not my car but sounds the same.

Any ideas on the issue?

Albert Einstein once said - Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
