Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I'm getting a whining noise coming from my 2006 freelander. When I'm driving I can hear it, not loud but annoying . When I stop at lights or in traffic it stops . I brought it to a garage this morning and they were only able to have a quick look as I had no appointment . Thought the noise was coming from front passengers wheel and they thought they had found something rubbing but that was not the problem . They had the car jacked up spinning the wheels but couldn't see anything , have to bring it back for an app but they are talking about maybe a gearbox , any ides?

I would have to ask if the noise increased with speed or did it change when the car shifts gears? Noise with engine speed (in park, slowly rev. engine), No then manually control transmission and drive slowly and try and maintain the same engine RPM while manually up-shifting the transmission. If the sound changes with gear changes then you are looking a transmission problem or a CV joint. I would check the CV boots for damage. If so then that is your problem.

SOURCE: rubbing/squealing noise in front passenger side wheel well

Repeat the experiment and rotate wheels at same time. Might be just coincidence and it is actually a belt. My guess would be power steering.

SOURCE: very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

What is making this 08 caliber 2.0L sxt cvt have a High pitched whining sound at idle and driving?


Possible bearing in one of the drive pulleys. I have changed numerous alternators for this noise. Take the belt off and start the car. If the noise goes away you know it will be pulley related and not transmission related. If noise goes away, spin all pulleys by hand to determine the defective/noisy one

Whining humming noise under hood


If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.

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.

1998 ford Taurus Whining Noise


Does this noise lessen as you drive at high speeds?
Is the noise present at all gears including park and reverse?
Either purchase a stethoscope at Autozone or use a very long screwdriver place it behind water pump,alternator and a/c pulley and listed for the whining noise. Where ever you hear it with the scope / screwdriver is the problem.
If you don't hear anything at the described pulleys then get all four wheels off the ground, get on a creaper and place whatever your using as a listening device on the transmission . If its comming out of here its the pump inside the torque converter . If its not and the only time its happening is when your driving it could be wheel bearings (not likely because they grind and howl). The same with axle's except if the boots are torn. this may be your problem. I think its the transmission. Good luck

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.

Whine/high pitch noise from under hood '00 Explorer


Sounds like your tensioner and belt are both going bad together and need replaced. The tensioner pulls the belt tight to hold enough tension for the belt not to slip, but the belt once it has slipped gets "burned" or slick and slips anyway. When the A/C is engaged it has alot of pull on the belt and slips causing the sound most likely. When belt is off check other bearings for noise to make sure that is your only issue. If one starts to go the others may not far behind.

LOUD RACE CAR NOISES FROM MY 99 VW BEETLE


This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.
