Question about 2008 Citroen C1 1.0

1 Answer

Hi my c1 has started to make a whining sound (bit like a dog whine) the last couple of days. It tends to get louder and is intermittent, it starts when the engine is fired up (no probs starting engine) then it will start to whine when just stood, when i set off it can get louder, pressing the accellerator doesnt rid the problem and sometimes it sounds louder when i do this. I switched the engine off after 10 mins as it was embarrassing, when i started it up 5 mins later it made a slight noise then went away and didnt come back for the journey home of 10 mins. Any help appreciated, thanks in advance!

Have your drive belt replaced (sometimes called the auxiliary or serpentine belt) when it slips it creates a screeching noise and it's also a sign that it's going to fail (snap).
These can run the alternator and power steering so you should change it as a preventative measure.

SOURCE: my citroen C1 will not start

If the engine still won't crank over with a charged battery, then likely the starter has failed. Are your battery and starter connections clean and tight?

SOURCE: immobiliser fault

Spelling was fine, along with grammar and punctuation-you should see some of the mangled illegible questions we have to decipher, or try to!

But thanks for the follow-up on your problem and the solution. Who would have thought was just the battery? Responses like yours are great encouragement to keep going.

SOURCE: citroen c3 stood on an incline for 1 hour now wont start

You may need a reset of the immobiliser..you do this by pressing the alarm arm button while strating the engine.

Same problem: a high pitch whine after extended driving


Sounds like a dry/failing bearing or power steering pump noise. You first need to try to track down where the noise is originating, and the most likely place is at the front of the engine.
I would start by listening with the hood up while parked with the engine running and the noise present, and seeing if it is coming from there. If so, the most likely cause is something connected to the belt - e.g. AC compressor clutch, tensioner, power steering pump, or generator. Can also be caused by the belt just slipping (warn out belt, tensioner not working properly).

Loud engine whine (like a jet noise) from 2002 subaru forester


Have you crawled under the vehicle and personally inspected your exhaust line from manifold to tail pipe? The roaring sound usually occur when there is a hole in the exhaust line. I had it happen to my forester before. A hole half the size of a dime made my subaru sound like my old 74 chevy pickup.

Whining sound from front passenger side.


Check the condition of front disc brake pads, if they are in need of replacement a preset little metal arm starts rubbing the discs and will make a whining noise. It doesn't do any damage but it's irritating to listen to.

Whining


hi these boxes tended to be a bit noisey anyway but a simple test for the release bearing and first motion shaft is easy first make sure g/box oil level is ok
start engine ,take your foot off the clutch peddle compleatly you have a whine, put your foot on the peddleVERYlightlynoise should change ,if the noise is more of a rattle than a whine it is coming from the clutch release bearing if it a definate whine it is either the spigot bearing in the flywheel or the first motion shaft
