Question whinning nosie

wife notice a whinning noise comming from her car which, is a 1997 plymoth grand voyager 3.3litter. it has 107,800 miles on it. I was woundering if it could be the transmission? I hear the whinning when you step on the gas when accelerating. Any suggestions would help alot.

Thanks

Clinton

Does it whine in park or only when moving in gear? Whining in gear is usually torque converter/internal tranny related.

A bad alternator bearing will also whine.

Good chance for a bad alternator bearing.

Take the belt off. Run the car BRIEFLY with the belt off. If the noise goes away, it is accessory driven in nature.

If it IS a bad alternator bearing, which I think I may also have on my car, since my alternator makes a really nice buzzing sound, can this be fixed, or does the alternator have to be replaced? Thanks

Replacement of the alternator bearings requires they be pressed out in most cases. Not worth the effort. Replace the alternator.

SVT: Help me understand your comment, I'm still trying to figure out the logic of your post through both your poor grammar, spelling and pathetic humor.

Are you a troll in real life or do you just play one online? .

Keep it up and you'll be with your buddy Datssingle. You might ask him how it feels to be the bug on the windshield. Lol
Now behave and contribute constructively. Cmon I know you can do it .

joe ,go out and get a sense of humour. come down off your plinth and learn to laugh at yourself.
Davo, you,re partly right. lets get on with business.ie.cars.
don,t think i won,t disagree with you though joe if you get things wrong.

I've got a good sense of humor, yourself? Got car knowledge too, yourself?

Now, if you'll behave, we can move on as Davo stated.

As for the original poster's problem, the drive accessories are not the problem. It is engine/transmission related.

Try alldata.com and see if they show any bulletins on this type of noise.
