    Then your belts are possibly slipping and probably need to be adjusted or you can replace them and adjust them yourself if you know how to, I really dont think it could be the timing chain because its a timing chain and you will most likely never hear noises from them

Why is my car making whining noise by belts and pully


One of the accessory bearings could be going out
(I.E.-alternator,water pump,etc)If the noise is near an idler or tensioner pulley,it could also have a bad bearing.The best thing to do is remove the serpentine belt or release the tensioner pulley so the belt is loose,then you can spin each accessory pulley by hand and listen for the noise.You'll also feel the pulley dragging while you spin it and it might have a ratchety feel to it(in other words,as you're rotating the pulley you'll feel it spin somewhat freely and then it will feel as if its catching on something) If the belt itself is bad,it usually makes a squealing or chirping sound.If your vehicle has a vbelt drive with multiple belts,check the pullies the same way as described above and make sure the belts are all tight.A loose belt normally causes a squealing noise rather than a whining noise.Check your power steering fluid level too because the pump will whine if it gets low on fluid.

2004 Mitsubishi Outlander started squealing loudly when turning right


If it's the sound I'm thinking of you might just need a new belt or a pully. Typically water pump going out sounds like you have a turbo winding up and steering will growl.

Need to locate and replace the water pump on 1997 nissan sentra.


The water pump is located on the passanger side of the engine. Look right below the timing chain cover and there is a pully and belt on the water pump. You will have to remove the water pump and thermostate together then seperate them after you get them off the car. I would recommend replacing the thermostate also (cheap fix). You will have to remove the belt and pully before you can remove the water pump. Hope this helps....

My 92 chevy blazer is making a loud squealing noise sounds like my belts but its not that I've replaced the belt and the tensioner what else could it be?


Bearings in Alternator, water pump, power steering pump or even a squeal from Vacuum line, EGR diaphram or similar. Check power steering fluid level.



Now when you replaced the tensioner, did you notice more pulleys that were just "there" and not connected to anything? These are idler pulleys and are helpful in routing the belt. They have bearings too!

Pleae rate my info.

Timing chain making noise after water pump replasement


Basically its said,that when water pump is replaced,its also advisable to replace timing chain.The timing chain is either worn out or while replacing water pump,the timing chain got misaligned.It has to be inspected.Most probably,it needs to be replaced.

Whining sound and lost acceleration. Sounds like noise coming from pully? Whining increases when pressing the gas.


The lost acceleration is of major concern. Maybe you have lost your water pump. It would work great for a few miles when you start out and then gradually heat up and loose performance. The fluid would eventually boil over? Maybe a bearing on the camshaft is expressing it's discontent and causing extra load for the engine to overcome. Try to determine where the noise is coming from.
The serpentine belt connects the alternator, water pump, power steering, front timing pulley, fan, and front timing pulley. All these components generate a parasitic load on your engine. If the engine has to work harder because of increased load it could be any of these components. I'd definitely check the water pump listening for noise while running. Look for obvious things related to the belt and its' components.
Check the serpentine belt for wear. May indicate pulley misalignment or wear. There exists two idler pulleys that have small bearings that wear out and squealing noises. Check those for wobble with the tension off the belt. They are pretty cheap so replace them if any concern at all.
Power steering pumps cavitate and make a high pitch gear whining sound if fluids are low or gears warn of. Check the fluid and top off to the correct level.
Best wishes,
TF
