Whining noise in the rear end of a 2002 HIghlander

I have a 2002 HIghlander. When the temperature is below 10 degrees there is a high whining noise from under the car as the car accelerates. It decreases as the car slows down. It does this whether it is in neutral or drive. When the warms up the sound usually goes away unless it stays very cold outside. Above 10 degrees this does not happen. Could you please tell me what this might be and if I should be concered. Thanks

Well, not sure if the temps have a direct cause for your problem, but you may want to check the CV joints on your axles. If you have ripped a boot, and lost the grease, that could cause a whinning. There are also a few other things it could be as well............any more info?

SOURCE: Whining Noise

Hi, this sound is most likely coming from the power steering pump. I would first, check the power steering fluid level to see if it is full. if its not at the full mark, add some fluid. If the fluid reservoir is full upon inspection and the whining continues, the pump may be damaged and the pulley on the power steering pump could be slightly out of sync with the pump housing.

The second issue could be belt slippage. i would do a tension check on the drive belt and pulleys as well. make sure there isn't any ware and tare on the belt and make sure the tension is to specs.

Please rate and god bless:)

Car is running high oil pressure between 60 to 80. it runs it always high and kinda makes a whining noise. its a camaro ss 2002


The oil pressure is normal. A whining sound could come from anywhere on the vehicle from the power steering, alternator, auto transmission, the water pump or even the air conditioner. It could be the power steering pump. Check this by moving the steering wheel back and forth. This will put load on the system and it will increase the whining if it is the problem.

Whining noise when temperature is below 0 on 2005 f150


A whining noise when it is extremely cold outside is usually caused by the power steering pump due to the fluid being real thick at low temperatures. This noise usually goes away as the vehicle warms up and the fluid thins out.

2002 Pontiac Aztek - AWD disable light and Anti Lock Light


AWD disabled from a sensor unit in rear differential that senses high temp. This thing is over $300. Whine is from fluid. Need to change fluid. This versatrack fluid is about $40 per bottle and you need 3 bottles. Thumping noise is from loose rear knuckle bushings. These are part of the entire rear knuckle assy. and you must replace complete knuckle.
