Question about 1998 Honda Civic
Car starts fine runs good but when running it has a whining noise coming from the engine somewhere that revs and slows with engine. While idle it is not bad but as you speed up or rev the enging it will get a little louder until cruise speed is achieved or at an idle. Could this be the ac unit, a belt tensioner or something of that nature? Please help.
Most likely a belt tensioner or pulley take some penetrating oil and spray the center of each pulley one at a time if the noise stops you got your bad pulley if not take the belts off the motor and spin everything by hand to feel or hear any grinding noises if you still don't feel anything run the motor (not for more then a minute) with the belts off and if the noise is still apparent your timing belt needs to be checked right away! it may be on its way out and if that goes your motor is toast good luck and please rate -jeff
