Hi, Do as Bill suggests there is something alittle too tight and or seazing up. Check the A/C compressor is a common problem.
Also check the power steering pump for the whine noise. Add oil if needed. Lubricate the idoler pulley (Bearing). Good luck

SOURCE: Fan Blower working, just not getting any cold air

The tensioner pulley is not turning??? Have you been burning up belts left and right?? Is the belt tight against the tensioner pulley?? You need to check to make sure that pulley is operating correctly. Are you getting good charge out of your altenator?? Is it hard to turn do to lack of power steering?? Have you thrown the belt multiple times?? If that pulley is not spinning there is only to causes for this. Either the pulley is froze, or there is no tension against the pulley. If the pulley is frozen you should be burning up belts often. The tensioner pulley spring is broke and not holding the proper tension. The belt might still be rotating, but the belt will not be rotating the other accessories attached like it should be. My chrysler van has a dual belt set up and yes if the tension pulley is not moving then you will be lacking the rotation need to make the ac compressor operate properly.

SOURCE: .i need a diagram of


Open hood, although it is easier to reach the belt tensioner from under the car, you will need to route the belt from above. Take the tension off the belt tensioner (a breaker bar or rachet and the proper size socket with a pipe to give ya more leverage should work) and pull the belt while the tensioner is pulled away from the belt. to put new belt on, properly follow accesorie pulleys with new belt, leaving the tensioner pulley last once that far, take your breaker bar or rachet with proper size socket... and pull the tensioner away from the belt so that you can slip the belt over the tensioner, push the belt over pulley. release the tensioner and check to make sure the belt is seated properly on all pulleys.

There should be a sticker with the diagram on the right strut tower. If it is no longer there the way to find the information (and a lot more related to your vehicle) would be to buy a Haynes manual for your model from an auto parts store or go to your local library and look in a Chilton manual. Most libraries will copy the page containing the pertinent info..

It could be your Ac Compressor pulley bearing. Thats what it was for me. I replaced the altenator first too thinking that was it.

Why is my car making whining noise by belts and pully

One of the accessory bearings could be going out
(I.E.-alternator,water pump,etc)If the noise is near an idler or tensioner pulley,it could also have a bad bearing.The best thing to do is remove the serpentine belt or release the tensioner pulley so the belt is loose,then you can spin each accessory pulley by hand and listen for the noise.You'll also feel the pulley dragging while you spin it and it might have a ratchety feel to it(in other words,as you're rotating the pulley you'll feel it spin somewhat freely and then it will feel as if its catching on something) If the belt itself is bad,it usually makes a squealing or chirping sound.If your vehicle has a vbelt drive with multiple belts,check the pullies the same way as described above and make sure the belts are all tight.A loose belt normally causes a squealing noise rather than a whining noise.Check your power steering fluid level too because the pump will whine if it gets low on fluid.

A high pitched whining noise in the engine.

This Noise Description sounds Indicative of the Sounds that come from the Serpentine Belt Or Related parts such as Belt Idler Pulley or Belt Tentioner witch also has a Pulley, but if Tensioner itself is Literally BROKE I've replaced a number like this it will cause a Whining noise . Best case scenario its just the Belt, and if any of the other Problems turn out to be the Culprit the Belt MUST be Replaced Anyhow as Damage is Being caused By the Very Whining you hear.
PLEASE Spend the Extras $ for the BEST BELT as this Drives your Water pump, Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power Steering Pump All Crucial to Control of, easy Steering ,All Electrical-Power Distribution, The COOLING of Engine << VERY CRITICAL Component
The Pulleys usually have a more Hum type Whining. So I would say at Best The BELT , And WORST Belt Tentioner is Broke

Noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner

I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. do I fix it??????
