This could be a bad starter solenoid just spinning and not retracting forward or backward. A solenoid is similar to an electric door bell. When electricity is applied through a coil of copper wire it becomes an electro-magnet pushing an arm to hit a bell.
The solenoid engages a small spinning starter gear forward onto the flywheel ring gear so it would crank and start the engine. When that stage is complete, the starter gear should retract back to it's default position via spring tension as soon as you release the key from the start position, away from the spinning flywheel. It could be that it's just spinning in place and not hooking up with the flywheel causing a no start scenario.

My Explorer is demonstrating a high pitch noise and feels like the engine is racing with acceleration, but no check engines lights are on


I really need the year but here is what might be the cause, the engine cooling fan clutch may be defective, if it locks up you will hear a roaring noise that gets louder as the engine speed increases. Open The hood and rev up the engine does the fan make allot of noise, like an airplane propeller?

I have a 2001 VW Bug it was making a noice while it was running. Parked the car and came back out later to start in again and now it wont start at all.


You did not mention what kind of noise so that's a tough one. Check the engine drive belt. If that's good and tight try to give a detailed description of the noise.

03 nissan altima high pitch whine from engine


I assume that you have a 6cyl engine, noise came from both worned secondary timing chain tenssioner shoes, just replace those two and while you have them all apart, also replace main tenssioner and guide, then all noises will go away. Good luck!

2004 GMC Envoy Radio high pitched noise when off and static


In my opinion, it's almost certainly the radio. Even when turned off, it is still alive managing a few other things (like chimes) until you exit the vehicle, and I suspect that part of the radio is faulty.

Why does my paid off 2000 VW Jetta GLS make a high pitch buzzy grinding sound. Is it the alternator ,transmission,or timing Belts. What do I do and how mauch can it run me. Am I still covered with the


The trick is to take off the belt and spin the different things and see if any of them make the noise you hear.
Water pump, alternator, power steering, air pump, belt tensioner pulley. You could also briefly (30 seconds) run the engine without the belt and see if it still makes the noise.

For prices, you can check autozone.com or partsamerica.com

My car will not start


are you saying the starter makes a high pitch sound and the engine does not turn? if so then your starter is probably bad, if you do not want to spend $175 dollars for a new one, find your local salvage yard they should have one for around $25 dollars

High pitch whistling noise in engine compartment of 2005 envoy


There may be a small hole or cut in a vacum line or possibly just loose. Also make sure the air filter box and the big hose to it are secure and clamps etc are tight. Pulleys and belts can make a high pitch sound also.

High pitch noise from engine compartment in 2003 Subaru Fores


There is a little beeper that sits just behind the front grill close to the Subaru emblem. It makes the sound you hear when you press the remote to lock or unlock the doors. It sometimes whines for a while but eventually stops. I have had this for a couple of years and it does not appear to have caused any problems.

High pitched car sounds


does the noise and light occour at the same time ? another cause of a high pitched noise can be slipping drive belts, alternator,powersteering etc so check them for tightness, condition etc, does the noise happen when car staionary and just rev the engine ? if so i would say it is the drive belt/s, go back to the VW dealer re the ABS light and get them to check the OBD as should be done as part of the service , hope this helps
