Question about 2003 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

I'm hearing a whine that sounds just like a bad bearing on a fan motor from the rear of the car. Only hear when car is running. I hear it when it's in park idling or in gear and moving. Only thing I can think of is fuel pump. Could that be the problem?

There is a loud whining coming from the motor


Hi Tyler:
Try using a mechanics stethescope (or a dowel sound rod, thumb over end held against your ear) and with the engine running, touch various components. You will hear different sounds, and hopefully be able to isolate the whine.
CAUTION - Work Safe - moving bits can make the sound rod hurt you.
I'd be guessing at an alternator bearing as they whine worse than a puppy on the wrong side of a door.
Cheers

High pitched whine to the right front passenger side that appears to increase with acceleration


It is a wheel bearing, no doubt.
the wheel bearing is pressed in so if you do the job yourself you will need to take the hub somewhere to have the new bearing pressed in, but 100% the bearing.

Steering wheel vibration and whine noise from rear of car


Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.

Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Good luck,
