Question about 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited

1 Answer

Whining Noise I have a whining noise, especially upon acceleration up a hill, in my Santa Fe. The noise is coming from underneath the hood, on passenger side. The dealership has already replaced the fuel pump once, and the power steering pump twice and last time they realized the line was clogged (I think to the fuel pump) and they flushed it out. Each time the problem is fixed for about one month. Now it is back and I am frustrated!

Sure sounds like a power steering pump, if they did not flush the grim out of the system from the old pump before they replaced the pump the new pump will fail in short order.

My 2005 Chrysler town & country is making a whining noise and gets louder when I accelerate. Also my light is on for rear defroster, but it doesn't defrost. Help!!!!!!


If the whining noise is coming from under the hood, have all pulleys checked for wear. ( Alternator/tensioner/idler etc ). A bad pulley will whine. As for the rear defrost, check the wires that go to the back window. There will be one on each side of the rear glass. One may be seperated/broken from the glass causing the defrost not to operate

If it was low, more then likely, your temperature would rise. Have you checked to see if the belt is making the noise or the tire? Is it just while you accelerate? You may have a vacuum leak.

Whining noise when AC or heat is on coming from engine compartmen


I suspect it is the blower fan and the ductwork for the air intake to the blower picks up the air in front of the engine compartment.

It would also be a good idea to have your alternator checked and use the A/C heat controls to see how much the blower motor is demanding from the alternator. Autozone and Oreillys will check the alternator on the car for free.

Whining Noise


Hi, this sound is most likely coming from the power steering pump. I would first, check the power steering fluid level to see if it is full. if its not at the full mark, add some fluid. If the fluid reservoir is full upon inspection and the whining continues, the pump may be damaged and the pulley on the power steering pump could be slightly out of sync with the pump housing.

The second issue could be belt slippage. i would do a tension check on the drive belt and pulleys as well. make sure there isn't any ware and tare on the belt and make sure the tension is to specs.

Please rate and god bless:)

Whining sound from under van only when i push the gas.


The serpentine belt is the most common cause for whining sound when accelerating, try to understand if noise is coming from serpentine belt.

Also check power steering belt under steering column, and also the rotor and chain, thei do not make whining noise , but can make noise when accelerating.

The belt is first suspect.

Well, not sure if the temps have a direct cause for your problem, but you may want to check the CV joints on your axles. If you have ripped a boot, and lost the grease, that could cause a whinning. There are also a few other things it could be as well............any more info?
