frown PLEASE HELP! -High pitched whining buzzing noise when cold!

Hey guys, happy Easter.

Anyways, you all know how much I love my car, and its getting on 5 months now that i've had it, I treat her like a queen however suddenly, strange things are happening. and its breaking my heart.

for about 4 weeks now, when starting the car cold, Along with the engine/exhaust noise, the car is making this HIDEOUS loud High pitched whiney squeaky buzzing noise which changes pitch and becomes louder as the revs rise. Once the car warms up and's driven for a while (after about 15-20 mins of driving), the noise is gone. But until then, its really loud and frankly quite embarrasing.

When I open the bonnet to listen for the location of the noise it can't be heard from the engine bay, however listening from under the car the noise can be heard to be coming from behind the engine, somewhere around the gearbox area. Its strange and only can be heard when its cold so if I take it to a mechaninc, by the time I get there the bastard noise is gone.

Guys? Can anyone help me? Its annoying the shit outta me big time, as well as worrying me to the point i'm almost going grey! I dont know what it is... I've never heard anything like it before..... I hope someone out there knows what i'm on about.

Thanks fellas, I have faith that someone will help me get to the bottom of this......

-Daniel

Could be your thrust race (on input shaft in gearbox). Does the noise change at all when you put your foot on the clutch?

It never goes away, but sometimes the clutch has a tiny tiny effect on the sound, only very minimal, then again, I might be trying to hear things....

maybe try and make sure that your belts arent slipping. mine makes a noise like that until the belts stop slipping and get traction.

Re: PLEASE HELP! -High pitched whining buzzing noise when cold!

If its manual make sure there is some slack in cable..Or the throw out bearing is always engaged and can stuff clutch as well...
Alternator bearings maybe on their way out ??
Enough power steering fluid in pump ??
Belts tight??
Nothing caught in fan?? Heater fan??
Mother inlaw???

Re: PLEASE HELP! -High pitched whining buzzing noise when cold!

Does it go away as it warms up idling, or only if you drive it?
Any changes with different gears/driving styles?
