Assuming it is not the gearbox (gears can whine). See if you can locate the area. As a starting point check items with bearings - Alternator, water pump, check the fluid for the power steering (this would be my first thing to check),

SOURCE: Noise when making a slow speed tight turn.

noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

Whining noise


would need head under the bonnet to know for sure but feel the AC lines as a lack of gas can cause a noise like this but its not often that you can hear it above the clanking of the diesel engine ,no petrol ones here at our fuel prices

Water pump; My 1990 Buick Century is leaking what looks like water or antifreeze, it's probably a mix of both because we have been putting water in the radiator. But everytime I park my car for a...


if you have the cooling system pressure tested this will show where the leak is coming from as there are frost pulgs and intake/headgaskets and other things that could be leaking.but pressure testing is the way to find what is leaking for sure.the rad may be full as it will draw water from the overflow bottle until its empty.if you didn`t have this problem until after the plugs were changed then it could be a hose that is leaking that was leaned on or moved to much.again pressure testing the system will show were its leaking.the whining noise could be antifreeze that has gotten on something causing the noise.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
I may not recommend a bypass on the compressor's wiring. This can lead to wire burning and may damage the vehicle's electrical system (which usually happens during bypass). If you can get one on the junkyard then it's better plus you can cut the cost.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

As long as the ignition key cylinder has never been changed, dealers will have records of factory key cuts going back some years. I think the cut off is 10 years but I could be wrong.

Car whines when in reverse


You didn't say if it was an automatic or a manual transmission. If it is a manual, whine in reverse is normal because the reverse gear is straight cut. The forward gears are helical cut so they don't whine.
