Some alternators will complain during higher output to replace the charge you used in starting the car.
An old mechanics trick is to use a screw driver, held with the handle pressed firmly behind your ear (bone conduction) and then press the tip on various (NON-rotating!!) accessories to isolate the source of the noise.
An old mechanic friend could tell you exactly which bearing, crank or rod, was rattling and predict how long you had before failure.

The most common cause would be a defective power steering pump.

My Honda CRV (1998) is making a high pitched whine sometimes when I'm driving. It seems to happen when the rpms are high before shifting (I own a standard transmittion CRV). It whines between 2.5 and 3...


Does the high-pitch whine exist when the engine is just running? Not moving (transmission is not in gear)? Running but with transmission in neutral (coasting down hill)?

Continued battery drain and high pitched noise when car started


Maybe the alternator is bad. A high pitched whine could mean that the alternator is not working properly.

One can test, by removing the belt to the alternator and running the engine and seeing if the whine goes away.

High pitched whining sound, like engine is revving but it is not. I believe it is related to the fan


sounds like a bad clutch fan. With engine OFF check to see if you can turn fan by hand, if not the clutch is bad

Same problem: a high pitch whine after extended driving


Sounds like a dry/failing bearing or power steering pump noise. You first need to try to track down where the noise is originating, and the most likely place is at the front of the engine.
I would start by listening with the hood up while parked with the engine running and the noise present, and seeing if it is coming from there. If so, the most likely cause is something connected to the belt - e.g. AC compressor clutch, tensioner, power steering pump, or generator. Can also be caused by the belt just slipping (warn out belt, tensioner not working properly).

High Pitch whine during acceleration


Hi Pullerwife,

I have a few suggestions for you,

First of all, check your air filter, make sure its clean, not clogged, and doesn't need to be changed.

I don't know how handy you are, but if you are fairly handy, check the idler pulley bearings, if your not, have a shop check it out, as a last resort.

Power steering pump/fluid being low is also a possibility, but thats usually more of a lower pitched whine then what you describe.

You say once the vehicle is warmed up, the whining stops. Does Weather seem to be a factor as well?

Hope I've helped, and don't forget to rate.
