Answers :

First of all, check to see if there are any fluid leaks under the vehicle, specifically anti-freeze or oily type of leak. If so, the fluid is probably getting on your fan or alternator belts and causing the noise. Otherwise, your belts could need to be replaced, or if your vehicle has an idler pulley, it is possible that it is bad. One other thing to note, if you are using air conditioning, sometimes, the condensation will spill on to the belts, if the belts are worn, they will squeal.
You have almost ten questions on here about this car. One you said the motor wont start. anouther you said the car runs but then stalls when you stop or turn. so why dont you post what is actually wrong with it so it can get fixed?

I have a loud whining noise coming from my ac compressor. i have a 98 cadillac deville and it makes the whining noise even if the ac is off. it makes that noise the whole time the car is running


The A/C compressor constantly turns because the pulley is connected into the serpentine system. The whining noise is pretty indicative of a low charge in the A/C system. I would start by having your A/C pressure checked and charged if needed. ... 1998 Cadillac Seville

I am preparing to sell my 94 Cadillac Deville. Towards the end of last fall, I replaced the power steering unit, belt and one of the small plastic pulleys. The car was making a high pitched whining noise and thought the new pully would fix that. Turns out the condenser and its pulley is jumping around and is the source of the noise. Is it seizing up - how hard is it to change this out?


Are you referring to the A/C compressor? You will definitely want to have it serviced by a qualified shop. Releasing freon into the air improperly is not only harmful to the environment but illegal. The parts are usually what cost the most on this ty ... Cadillac DeVille

I have a 1994 Cadillac DeVille and it has a very loud whining noise which seems to getting louder. I've been told it is the power steering unit and not to worry about it. Don't you think it is advisable to have it replaced? I'm afraid some day the power steering unit will fail and I'll be without power steering but am told that will not happen. Please advise.

When i start up my 98 cadillac deville there is a loud whining noise from the ac compressor. Will my car run without the ac compressor or will i need to spend the money to replace it?


The car should run okay without the compressor, you just won't have A/C. The cooling fans should still operate with the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. It is also possible that you just need to charge the A/C system. A loud whining noise is ind ... 1998 Cadillac Seville

Whining noise My Grand Caravan makes a whining noise some times when I?m driving. It does not drive any different when this is happening. The noise gets louder when I turn. I have checked the fluid and the pump and all appears normal.

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. ... 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited
