2007 dodge ram hemi whining noise from under hood


Inspect the belts for any carbon build up (It will look like specs of glassy residue), cracking, or for proper tension. If it tends to go away at a certain rpm or after a bit of driving I'd say it's definitly a belt.

You could try to figure out what belt it is by sitting in your driveway and idling while you turn the wheels (Powersteering belt) or turn on the A/C (A/C belt). Do you notice any lose of power? This could point to the main belt that winds its way around most of the engine.

Hope this helps!

Make sure the oil cap is on the engine properly & oil is'nt spraying out as the engine runs.Check the oil level.Possibly a vaccum hose was knocked off causing air to be sucked in (thats popular) which affect the idle & causes whining.Have you been to this shop before? If you dont find the answer, ask them to help.
