I would suggest changing your serpentine belt to a Goodyear Gaterback belt. It has grooves cut into it to reduce or eliminate noise.<!-- from fixya rte -->

High Pitched Whine


A high pitched whine like that indicates a bad bearing. Water pump, power steering pump, accessory belt slipping, alternator bearing, or in the worst case scenerio, Transmission pump.

I have a high pitched whine when accelerating coming from behind the area where the timing chain is. took it to a garage and they didn't know what it might be. any ideas? the vehicle has over 120,000...


If the noise started after the new belt was installed then chances are the timing belt is too tight. This "singing" would be noticeable immediately and will change pitch with rpm's. If this is not the case then it could be a bearing on one of the timing belt idler pullies.

Whine from 2005 corolla automatic transmission


Have the tranny serviced with fluid change and filter, if noise it still there it is the torque converter . Have the dealer fix it ,and have it on paper with dealer invoice when it is done. Do all this before warranty expires. IT IS NOT USUAL for any car, Toyota included, to have tranny whine!!!!!

High Pitch whine during acceleration


Hi Pullerwife,

I have a few suggestions for you,

First of all, check your air filter, make sure its clean, not clogged, and doesn't need to be changed.

I don't know how handy you are, but if you are fairly handy, check the idler pulley bearings, if your not, have a shop check it out, as a last resort.

Power steering pump/fluid being low is also a possibility, but thats usually more of a lower pitched whine then what you describe.

You say once the vehicle is warmed up, the whining stops. Does Weather seem to be a factor as well?

Hope I've helped, and don't forget to rate.
