Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Focus ZTS engine whine/ noise

The exhaust system on this vehicle has to be able to flex or it would crack at one of the joints, so it has hangers with rubber bushings to hold it into place and still be able to flex with the engine. Now grant it one of these bushings may have come loose or one of the hangers may have broke but I would be concerned about the thumping of the exhaust against the floor board. This could be caused by a broken motor mount letting the engine flex to much. I would suggest having someone inspect these.

SOURCE: rattling noise during engine start up.. 2005 mitz galant 2.4l

Probably a heat shield. Often time the screws that hold the shields in place rust away causing the shield to rattle. After the exhaust heats up, the pipes and shield expand causing the shield to stop rattling until it cools down again later when the car has been sitting for a while. Usually you'll find shields under or around the catalytic converter and around the exhaust pipe nearest to the engine. Most folks would probably recommend you remove the shield and be done with it. That's your call. Just remember though, the shields are there for a reason. In particular, the shield under the catalytic converter is there to prevent the possibility of starting tall grass on fire in the event you had to pull off the road for example to fix a flat tire or something along those lines. It might be unlikely, but its definitely been known to happen. Let us know how it goes. Thanks.

SOURCE: Whining Noise

Hi, this sound is most likely coming from the power steering pump. I would first, check the power steering fluid level to see if it is full. if its not at the full mark, add some fluid. If the fluid reservoir is full upon inspection and the whining continues, the pump may be damaged and the pulley on the power steering pump could be slightly out of sync with the pump housing.

The second issue could be belt slippage. i would do a tension check on the drive belt and pulleys as well. make sure there isn't any ware and tare on the belt and make sure the tension is to specs.

Please rate and god bless:)

Whining noise when extreme cold days, that goes away when my 2005 Mariner warms up. Seems to come and go until the car warms up.


Alternators can sometimes whine when start up on a cold morning, they run on full load till they get the battery back up to full charge. When the whining stops, switch on electrical equipment (Headlights, fan full boost, heated rear window) if the whining starts again its the alternator.

My 1991 subaru 2.5 legacy boxer sounds like the power steering is out of oil when you start car in th mornings, but ok once car has been run ,


Your Pump is getting worn, as it expands the noise goes away. You can try and Empty the Power Steering Pump of its fluid and put new in and there is a chance it will go away but if it does not, you are looking at replacing the Pump.

Preventive Maintenance goes a long way, the same thing with the brakes, Engine, Transmission, ect.. They all require changing the fluid to prolong the life of the components.

When I started my ford 08 explorer sport tracker in the cold it started while running i heard a winding noise for a minute then it was gone what could the noise from?


whining noises are usually the power steering pump. Check your power steering fluid levels. If they are fine do not worry about it, cold weather does this to the pump and goes away as you warm up.

Nissan pathfinder 1995 model SUV, when i try to start it its making a whinning noise then i hear a hard clucking sound and the whinning goes away without the car starting


Does the engine crank at all ?
The low whine could be the starter turning but not engaging the flywheel.
The clunk could be when the bendix gear on the starter makes contact with the flywheel.
If the starter does not have enough voltage, the solenoid or bendix may not engage. Even tho you replaced both the starter and battery, there could be a problem with the cables or the ground connection.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe V6 3.5L with automatic transmission. 48K miles. When I start the car after sitting over night, I hear this whirring/whining noise from the engine compartment. I goes away...


your whining noise might be comming from dry belts in order to pinpoint your problem have a jug of water ready before startup open the bonnet then startup if the noise appears pour water over the belts if noise goes away replace v belts

Whining in the engine


I had the same whining noise, but after a minute or two it would go away. It turned out to be my water pump. It wouldnt turn first thing in the morning and the belt was just running through the pulley, (causing the whining noise). This may not be your problem, but it is easy to check. Just pop your hood and see if the fan is turning.

Whining engine


It could be a pully bearing going bad, or your power stearing pump. next time you start it when it's cold try moving your steering wheel left to righ and see if there is any changes. The next time try removing your belt before you start it and see if the noise goes away. The belt could be warn out and hard itll it warms up and soften up. Start with a new belt. Good luck
