First of all, check to see if there are any fluid leaks under the vehicle, specifically anti-freeze or oily type of leak. If so, the fluid is probably getting on your fan or alternator belts and causing the noise. Otherwise, your belts could need to be replaced, or if your vehicle has an idler pulley, it is possible that it is bad. One other thing to note, if you are using air conditioning, sometimes, the condensation will spill on to the belts, if the belts are worn, they will squeal.

What is making this 08 caliber 2.0L sxt cvt have a High pitched whining sound at idle and driving?


Possible bearing in one of the drive pulleys. I have changed numerous alternators for this noise. Take the belt off and start the car. If the noise goes away you know it will be pulley related and not transmission related. If noise goes away, spin all pulleys by hand to determine the defective/noisy one

How to remove the whining from xc90 frontend


Whining from the engine or the driveline itself? Whining can be caused by lack of or low lubricant, a bad bearing or a serpentine belt on the way out. Can you be more specific? Does it only whine while you are driving, or does it whine all the time and changes pitch with engine RPM? Does turning the tires change the noise, if so, does it go away in one direction but not the other, or does it increase in noise the closer you get to full lock on the steering wheel?

Could be your alternator or a bad idler pulley. Is the transmission good? It may be the tranny or your differential whining.

High pitched whine


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

Engine makes whining sound


Take the belt off and spin all of the pulleys. the bad component should be obvious. high pitch whine is usually alternator bearing for the 98 3800 its timkin part# 100ccab or it can be the power steering pump(but the pitch will change as your steering if it is that) water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys(if you have to change either one, replace the tensioner itself). if you have the supercharged model there are a few parts that can whine( or the s/c is low on oil.)

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.

I have a loud whining noise coming from my ac compressor. i have a 98 cadillac deville and it makes the whining noise even if the ac is off. it makes that noise the whole time the car is running


The A/C compressor constantly turns because the pulley is connected into the serpentine system. The whining noise is pretty indicative of a low charge in the A/C system. I would start by having your A/C pressure checked and charged if needed.

Weird noises in drive and reverse


The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
