    Hi ...... Try checking the tension of the belts and listen to the alternator, bearing 'goes' very early on them ............. Let me know how you get on.

    dont think its that expensive if you can find a local mobile mechanic or a mechanic from a garage willing to do a private sunday job

What can cause a whining noise coming from 2003 mazda 6 engine?


That is commonly caused by a power steering pump issue, it is either low on fluid due to a leak in a hose or the pump is defective.

Fuel smell in cab from vents when first driving


There isn't much which moves at the back end with the vehicle stationary. I would also guess fuel pump issue. Try locating the pump to listen more carefully.

Here are the common causes or rear end noises
Constant high pitched whine at all speeds: Pinion Bearings or Ring gear carrier bearings
Whine at steady speeds or whines on deceleration: Rear end gear set is worn and will need to be replaced.
Rumbling type of noises are caused by wheel bearings or a tire with a separated cord.

2005 Chevy trailblazer ext. engine whines constantly. Truck seems to operate fine, but the constant whining is annoying. What is it? Idler pulley was replaced a few years ago.


Sometimes when your altenator bearings are going bad they will make a whining noise, could also be power steering pump, try to see if you can isolate the noise to one or the other, is it louder on one side of the engine or the other side. That would help to narrow it down.

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.

A constant whizzing


that whining noise is definately your power steering pump. the earlier models eg 2001-2003 just have noisy ones. so they say, if that noise become really excessive; its an early warning that its gonna fail. the newer pumps are much quiter, but i was quoted approx 1200+ CND for a new pump. I have a 2003 cooper, and the whining noise is loud. only once has the steering been really stiff, but i resolve that problem by restarting the vehicle. watch out tho, the power sttering could fail on you while your driving around a corner, and if you dont have both hands on the wheel, you'll go strait.
