Question about 2003 Volvo C70
I have experienced some 'pinking' recently especially when driving up hills but generally the car has operated fine. It has just experienced this problem for the first time and thought it was something to do with the coil pack or could it be cam belt??
On some cars, a low battery voltage will only spin the starter, but not enough to engage the engine. Have the battery checked. Try a jump start from a good battery in a running car.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the response Mike. In the end I called out recovery and the engine was flooded due to a very short start stop of the car earlier in the day. The mechanic called it 'bore wash' Basically if the car is started up and moved a very short distance and turned off and left fuel continues to flow flooding the engine although there was no indication of the smell of fuel. Apparently this is common!"
If the car has a lot of miles and the serpintine belt has not been replaced pull the cover off the belt ,and inspect the belt for damage or breakage. your lucky if you get 150,000 miles out of the belt .when replacing the belt make sure to ask for the gator back belt ,if you don't like squeaking . it's.only a couple dollars more.

SOURCE: Whining noise from engine
altho new you may have a whining water pump or tensioner or it may be over tensioned.
take a long screw driver & place in on the timing cover to try to here where the noise is coming from, this should help you find the proplem with the car
