PURRING NOISE

2004 Mitsubishi Grandis • 106,500 miles

My car is making a kind of purring noise when i'm driving, it doesn't do it whilst i'm stopped but only when my foot in on the accelaraor but it isn't doing it all the time but most of the time, I've had a mechanic look at it but he says there are no visible signs but he was unable to have a drive in it at that time and he isn't available to do so until next week, what could the problem be?

Try spraying water on your belt, if the sound goes away you probably need anew belt and tensioner. Recommended replacement is 60k for both
