high pitched car whine

Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Asked by nachos on December 18, 2020

can’t figure out what this noise is. took it to the mechanic twice and they couldn’t hear anything. there’s a high pitched noise coming from the car that you can clearly hear in the video. any idea what this is?

about car: 2014 honda civic CVT with 25,000

last time i took the car to the mechanic they said the idler pulley, belt and tensioner looked OK. not sure what that means.

One Answer

Take a meter-long piece of heater hose or garden hose, and hold one end against your ear. Use the other end like a stethoscope and carefully place it near various pulleys, belts, air intakes and exhaust.
Be careful near the fan and hot exhaust. You can put a small funnel into the hose end toward the engine if you like. When you find the location, get advice or edit question if needed..
