Annoying whine when revs greater than 4000rpm

Hey all,

I got this annoying whine that comes on just after 4000 rpm. its kinda like a hissing noise i guess would describe it. I lubed all the ancillaries, and sprayed silicon spray on the belts. but didnt work! what could it be?

This could be a long shot, but is your girlfriend in the car when this whining occurs?

I have the same noise. I actually had two, one was continual and the other (is) when I rev to about 3 grand. I'll have to take off the fan belt and give it a rev and see if it still makes the noise.

If it doesn't its one of the bearing in the fanbelt line.

Just a matter of getting time......

I got the idler pulleys and tensioner pulley done all at the same time. I got my mechanic to do it and it cost me about $220 supplied and fitted!

Re: Annoying whine when revs greater than 4000rpm

Yes difference was you did them ya self dcliff and I got someone to do it for me. You saved $160 and I payed for the convenience.
I would love to spend the time to do things myself but in all reality, I just dont have the time.
