Truth is it could be any pulley on the serpentine belt configuration. Basically the squeal is caused by a bad bearing on anyone of those . You might want to put your ear (be careful) as close as possible while revving to see if you can locate it. If that doesn't work take off te belt and check and see if any one of the pulleys wiggle ( indicting a bad bearing) . If you don't feel comfortable locating it take it to a pro.

SOURCE: Engine Making Noise when accelerating

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

Driving a good distance car makes a whamming sound the more Itry to accelerate the speed decreases whinning louder only stops whinning when I pull over to let the car cool down


Have your wheel bearings checked, when a wheel bearing is going bad it hums louder as you accelerate, when you stop or slow down the sound stops. A bad bearing does that, it over heats due to it not having enough grease on the bearing and will hum as you drive and get louder as you accelerate.

Siren nosie from engine


sounds like a power steering issue. They whine when the fluid is low. Check your fluid level. If it is low, you have a power steering leak. If its not that, describe the sound a little more and I'll try again.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Could also be a CV. Make sure you know what wheel before you replace anything. Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand. If correct wheel you will hear it. Hope this helps

Alarm is armed but when door is opened no siren


Is there power to the siren? Are the lights flashing? Can you choose to have the siren on or off? If the lights flash and there is no power to the siren it may be the controller. If you have power to the siren then make sure you have good ground at the siren even if you have to run a ground wire from it
