No web bunny can answer that, he cant touch it, see it, hear it or do tests.
my best guess. is the Alternator front bearing is burned to a crips
whines and the bouncing shaft beat the slip ring brushes inside
to dead.
bad ALT,
or the belt fell off, and is dangling inside and is touching a pulley and making racket.
open the hood, have any mech. look there, see if the belt is bad
or the front bearing on the ALT is toast
i use a $5 sethoscope (Dr. like) and listen, yup, bearing is screaming
all in 3 min. flat.

SOURCE: steering difficult(slow) and a whining noise when turning wheel

The whine is most likely your power steering pump. Check the fluid in the pump. If you are low on power steering fluid you may have a leaking hose or fitting or the seals in the pump may have began leaaking. If you continue to run the auto without power steering fluid you will burn up the power steering pump very quickly.

SOURCE: Alternator makes a loud whining noise tht can also

It sounds like a condenser in your alternator that works like an isolation transformer in stereo equipment to stop a ground loop between two components. Its allowing a frequency to just pass thru without stopping it at the source.

Loud whine coming from engine


The whining sound that you here could be coming from a number of places. It may be a coincidence but I think you may be talking about the transmission's pump. You may want to buy a stethoscope. This tool, if properly and carefully used, will help pin point a mechanical noise. Other possibilities are the power steering pump, tensioner and idler bearing, A/C compressor or A/C clutch, or Alternator. I hope this helps, write back if you have any other questions, good luck.

When I engage the clutch, sometimes it makes a whining sound.


If it is a throw-out bearing it will only make noise when pressure is applied to clutch pedal, there is also a pilot bearing that will squeel with clutch in if bad. when doing a clutch replacement all these parts should be replaced.
