Question about 2000 Toyota Camry
There is a high pitched whine from the front of the engine when starting from cold. This vanishes as the engine warms.I have changed the main drive belt to no avail.Car has done only 60,000 km (35,000ml) so should not need timing belt. Any ideas?
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.
