SOURCE: well my mitsubish galant makes

Replace the belts when they are worn and or dry rotted they become brittle and slip. sound is much worse when vehicle is closed. I would also try shutting the A/C off also sometimes the compressor will make a lot of racket if the clutches are shot.

SOURCE: when i start my lancer it makes a loud whining

Had this same problem, it was a loose alternator belt. If there is one thing I have learned in my experience, it is start with the easiest things first. Check the tension on your alternator and serpentine belts. Both should have manual adjusters as apposed to being able to auto tension.

SOURCE: I have a whining sound

That sound, under those conditions, usually indicates a bad p/s pump, as you suspected, but first check the fluid level of the p/s. Low fluid will also cause the pump to whine like that.

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.

2000 Estima, 6 cylinder, makes a short whining noise on start up, also when placed into gear both forward and reverse - mainly when cold - makes a slight knocking sound that fades when you pick up speed,...


The whining noise at start up is either the power steering pump (possibly low fluid, or faulty pump bearing), or possibly a belt on the engine. As for the knocking sound, that is hard to diagnose without actually hearing it, but based on the fact that you are hearing a whining sound at start up, which is indicative of a loose belt, I would start at the belt tensioner and make sure that it is applying the correct amount of pressure on the belts. If the belt tensioner is faulty, it can make a knocking sound. If that is not the issue, then it could simply be the lifters. With engine run time/miles on the engine, internal engine components, such as lifters, valves, bearings and any moving part, deteriorate from friction wear and heat.They have a tendency to make a knocking/rattling sound when they are building up pressure. When they build sufficient pressure, or the engine reaches operating temperature, this sound/noise will dissipate and become nonexistent. This can be remedied by changing the oil, and possibly the weight of the oil (5w30, 10w40, 20w50) depending on your driving habits , or conditions (Highway v/s City/Stop&Go, or short trips under 30 miles)

I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

How do i fix the whining noise my 2009 kia sorento makes


may be your power steering pump whining. Check fluid first, then if it's up, start the car up and have someone turn the wheel back and forth a few times. Listen to see if there is more or less noise when this happens. Does the noise go away after it warms up?

I have a 2001 Jeep TJ.4.0L I6 5Speed 176,000Km When the engine is cold, at 1800RPM it makes a whining sound. It goes away when driven a couple miles.


It sounds like you need to replace the serpentine belt when they get old they will whine and when they warm up alot of times it will quit and sometimes not but it sounds like you just need a new serpentine belt which runs your water pump,alternator,powersteering.

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

Whining sound from under van only when i push the gas.


The serpentine belt is the most common cause for whining sound when accelerating, try to understand if noise is coming from serpentine belt.

Also check power steering belt under steering column, and also the rotor and chain, thei do not make whining noise , but can make noise when accelerating.

The belt is first suspect.
