Hi!!

It sounds like the radiator fan bearings, that's the only thing that keeps turning when the engine is turned of. The noise is allways there but with the engine noise you are not able to hear it.

The radiator fan motor is sealed so it's not repairable. They cost $75 to $100 depending on your vehicle and it is fairly easy to replace. Take the vehicle to a radiator shop or any auto shop for second opininon..

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!

SOURCE: There is a whining noise coming from the front

There are several things it can be and they need to be diagnosed when it is whining.

  1. Power Steering pump. If you put a long screwdriver to the pump and put your ear you should hear it a lot louder. (becareful you don't drop the screw driver into the belt area) If you have a stethoscope it will work too.
  2. one of the serp. belt pulleys.
  3. The transmission filter may be coming apart and restricting the flow of fluid.
  4. Could be the water pump, but less likely.
  5. Timing belt. You did not indicate which engine. The 4 cylinder belt should be replace around 90K.
Diagnosis is essential, you don't want to just throw money at it.
In one and two a service may take care of the problem. With the trans make sure they remove the pan and replace the filter, then flush the trans.

SOURCE: front end whinning noise

USualy it is one or both of the front wheel bearings that have gone bad, while yo have the vehicle on a jack stand with the engine off and making sure that the wheels are set straight, hold the tire on top and bottom and try to move it if there is any movement felt you have bad wheel bearings.

SOURCE: "whining" coming from front of engine

With the vehicle running, take a long screwdriver and place the metal end on the alternator housing. Cup your hand around your ear and place on the handle of the screwdriver. Listen for strong whining noises. If nothing, repeat the same procedure for all components you can safely get to that is powered by your serpentine belt. Chances are, the whining is coming from worn bearings on a component such as an alternator, water pump, etc.

SOURCE: cars turned off while driving

Is there a check engine light on? The whinning noise may be related to the power steering while the engine is running, but the engine shutting down is most likely not related.What is the year,make and model? How many miles are on the car?

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

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.
