High pitch whine or whistle


if it was front main seal, the belts all had to come off to acess this..as a result the timing belt may have been replaced by them and put on too tight which will whine as the engine runs..this will get less intense as the new belt gets stretched and will be gone within a few hundred miles..as long as the belt was installed to specs there should be no problem other than a noise which shouldnt last long repost if it keeps on or something else happens..good luck..

Engine sound when speeding up


the problem you are describing sounds like you have a loose rod bearing which is common on a engine with that many miles on it and under excelleration yes!! it will knock with it knocking to that degree for any lenght of time! putting new bearing in won;t fix it!! cause damage to the cracnshaft has already arose you will need to pull the motor and change the crank and bearings or replace the motor

Seat belts receivers are taped over


First step is to remove the tape, no way to know the process of a mad man better then to dive into his world. Just make sure no one is sitting in them when you try to connect the male to the female end, perhaps they got stuck which could be a reason they were taped over. Start with that and report back.

Rough idle


look on the back of your accordian like air intake duct...you will find a small crack...hard to see unless you flex it or at least look carefully....electrical tape will work as a temporary fix. A new flexible air intake hose....which runs from the air flow control box on the fender to the throttle body on top of the engine is about $100....but you can get one from a wrecker for about 5.

I have a 1989 chevy cavalier z24 2.8 6 cyl. Hard to start


a serpentine belt will not cause any such problems and the shop that told you the motor was bad probably can't figure out the problem and figured aww what the heck just replace the whole motor at your expense.... an even easier way to check the motor is with a compression tester you can rent from an auto parts store they cost about $50-$100 us to purchase new if you can't rent one I suggest getting a repair manual at that auto parts store as well @$30 take a couple of hours to read through I am not to familiar with that particular model but I wanna say there is an air temp sensor located on the air intake line or the intake manifold itself prob. a $12 sensor if you feel like taking a shot in the dark
