If the noise increases if you rev the engine suspect the serpentine belt. This would be more of a screech than a whine. The noise would be more pronounced on a moist morning. It comes from the belt slipping or being misaligned. Try a GoodYear Gaterback belt as a replacement. It has grooves cut into it to reduce noise. Be sure your tensioner is working correctly. Also, the starter can make a noise if it does not disengage properly.

Funny sound from the gear when in motion


If it's a high pitched whining noise it's will more than likely be the bearing in clutch assembly. When your drivin push clutch pedal down if noise disappears then will be bearing in clutch. If a automatic it might be a wheel bearing.

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.

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.

Howl or whine noise inside after the a/c compressor lines replace


Be sure that oil was added when the new compressor and line were put in. It sounds as if the compressor is the one making noise. Is it a new compressor?

03 Windstar makes a whining noise when idling and turning. Sounds like it is coming from steering column. Power steering fluid level is good.


When you checked the power steering fluid level were there any indications of excessive foaming? There are three things that would cause a whining noise from the power steering. 1- low fluid (you checked that so that is not the culprit), 2- loose steering drive belt (you should not be able to press down on the belt more that about one inch between the steering pump pulley and the crankshaft pulley), 3- power steering pump bearing worn out.
