Possibly a pump of sorts or a belt.. does it whine more when you turn corners?steering fluid pump Be sure to check all your fluid levels and make sure to follow manufacturers recommendations and read the bottles really well before you add any fluids.. check condition of belts etc..

Hello Kim,

What type of vehicle are we discussing here? Engine? 2 WD? Transmission?

Is the whining noise present at idle?

Is your vehicle air conditioned?

I need some details to provide assistance.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix


Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

The engine will have to be removed and inspected, to find out what has happened. Big expense, may need replacement engine.

Engine making whining noise


There are a couple of things to check. If your power steering pump is low on fluid, or a bad bearing is in the Alternator, they will whine. The PCV valve or any hole in the Vacuum lines will whine as RPM is increased. Even having the Air filter box not fully seated will make a whining noise.

Now both automatic and manual transmissions can whine as RPM is increased. Check fluid for each.

Serpetine belt and pulleys-can make noise.

Sometimes you can shift into neutral at any speed and the engine rpm will drop almost instantly as the car rolls at speed. If the problem disappears as soon as the rpm drops, then an engine part probably is the reason.

'05 Chevy Colorado has an engine whine coming from rear of engine block on passenger side. Took the drive belt off and the whine is still there. The more I accelerate, the louder the whine.


There is nothing that can make a whining noise in the back of the engine. Likely the noise you hear is coming from either the transmission converter or pump. Before anything else is done, check the fluid level. If the fluid on the dipstick smells burned, you definitely have an internal trans problem.

Whining in the engine


I had the same whining noise, but after a minute or two it would go away. It turned out to be my water pump. It wouldnt turn first thing in the morning and the belt was just running through the pulley, (causing the whining noise). This may not be your problem, but it is easy to check. Just pop your hood and see if the fan is turning.
