    Whooshing, slipping noise any ideas?

    My car has just started making a funny noise in 4th and 5th gear when under load i.e. going uphill like a whooshing slipping noise. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be, seems to be coming from drivers side and is not a cluncky noise. Could it be the water pump or a tensioner? Is it possible to change the water pump yourself or is it a specialist job? Many thanks.

    4th and 5th gear share the same bearing in the gearbox apparently so it could have something to do with that! just with you saying underload thats when you would get gearbox noise.
    Or it could be something as simple as the aux belt but then again would that be put underload going up a hill!
    Tricky one
