I washed my truck and it cost me $5.00, Yeah! It seems that when the rotor is real shiny and gets a speck of brake dust on it, then it will make an awful whining noise (only when taking off). If I want I can sand them down, but a car wash will do.

My Kia makes a whining noise upon acceleration- engine seems to be ok at freeway speed


check the condition of the alternater etc drive belts , to test rev engine and spray a little WD 40 onto the belts, if the whining goes then if your lucky a new set of belts will be all you need to change , but it could also mean a bearing is wearing out on one or more of the components that are being driven by the belts ,so more diagnosis would be needed if still whining after new set of drive belts

Discovery 3 MY09 TDV6 front end whine under load acceleration


When you say whine does it only occur under acceleration only? If so most likely the wheel hub assembly or some will say wheel bearing but on these vehicles it is complete hub assembly. If you turn or swerve one way then the other does it go away in one direction? If so another strong indication of hub wearing out. If not, and it is a really high whine with acceleration it is also possibly the transmission. I have heard of this complaint before, it's not a sign of failure just a noise that develops due to the pressure placed on bearing under a load. First change fluid and filter for tranny after a good flushing. Replace with high quality fluid and a bottle of transmission seal restore product. Go 1000 miles, change fluid again, if noise is still there turn up radio.
Sorry but just a whine under acceleration isn't a lot to go on. But I'm willing to bet wheel hub. 9 out of ten front end whine complaints is wheel hub or bearing especially on a heavy 4x4 suv

Makes clicking noise while under load.


Sounds like you have a defective universal joint or constant velocity joint in the drive line.

Wynding noise under dash when picking up speed.


Does the winding noise speed nup and slow down with the movement of the car? Does the sound seem like an electrical whine or a mechanical whine? It could be your speedomiter cable.

Whining noise from front of 2003 impala.higher


Apparently the whine is car speed related and not engine speed. I'm surprised that you didn't say anything about checking the wheel bearings?

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.


One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
