2008 sebring loud engine whine


... Chrysler Sebring

Have a 1997 Sebring. Have a loud whining sound that is proportional to the speed and rpm of the car. Only happens while driving. Rev the engine in park and it sounds normal. Equipped with new tires, pads, rotors, harmonic balancer, all fluids are good. What I fear is a bad transmission or a leak from the catalytic converter. Other than the sound the car sounds/runs great except the Assist Shift does shift harder than it should. uhhmmmm.


Either the torque converter is breaking up inside or the flex plate that holds it to the crank is broke or breaking around the bolts that hold it to the crank ... 1997 Chrysler Sebring

Engine whine I have been having an increasingly loud "whine" from my engine. It is louder with acceleration but not dramatically. I've been told it could be the idler pulley...any suggestions?


It could be any of the pulleys on the engine. Water pump, ac compressor,alternator, idler, or power steering pump. I would say that it is more than likely the power steering pump wining. That would be my first suspect ... 2002 Dodge Intrepid

2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with 3.8L engine. When engine is cold and especially when outside temperature is also cold, the normal engine sound is a loud whine that varies with engine speed. When the engine warms up to normal operating temperature, the engine sound goes back to its normal quiet sound. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Loud noise! 0 Jeep Grand Cherokee after about 5 min starts a very loud high pitch whinning.It used to eventually go away but now it is always whinning and even louder!Seems like it's coming from drivers side engine compartment near the intake manifold. I thought it was a belt because when you step on the gas the rpms go up and the noise quits until you slow down or come to a stop then it starts again!! Is it a vacuum leak? A bearing seizing somewhere? Belt tensioner?


I would say a bad pulley also. Try to open the hood at idle and see if you can hear where it's coming from. Possibly a bad idle pulley or even the fan belf if yours is a mechanical fan. ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I just changed the timing belt on a 1997 toyota camry and I tried to start it and it fired up and ran for a few seconds then I turned it off and then I tried to restart the car and it just let out a loud whining noise and would not start. I checked the oil and it was low so I checked the engine rotation to see if it had siezed but it rolls free. I will of course add oil and try to start it again but is there anything else I should check for before cranking the engine?


You might want to check to see if the timing belt came off. It sounds to me like the timing belt may not have been installed correctly. ... Cars & Trucks

2006 Ford Taurus-35K miles. When engine is cold, loud pop occurs when putting into gear (D & R). Sounds like frame flex or strut housing shift from engine torque? Also, whine at rear when rolling at higher speeds. Previous tires and new ones make no difference. At low speeds, struts in rear are noisy when going over jagged bumps in road. Dealer claims all noises are normal and can't claim to duplicate "pop" noise, but, of course, it did it for me immediately upon picking it up.

1991 Jeep Wrangler making whining noise when in gear. It did it for the first time tonight. Its a high, loud whine. It almost sounds like claws on a chalkboard. It can be heard a block away from the house. My dad thinks it might be the transmission, but then about halfway home, it stopped making the noise. Could it be the engine was just cold? I just got it this summer so this is the first time I've driven it in cold weather. It only makes the sound when in gear. I tried pushing the gas while I
