I just recently bought (as in a few days ago) a '98 Chevrolet Cavalier LS, and it has about 112k miles on it. Its engine specs are 115-hp, 2.2-liter I-4.
I just put new tires on it last night, and noticed after driving away that there was a new sound in the engine. It was a kind of whirring noise, kind of like a baseball card in the spokes of a bicycle. It's really noticeable when idling or at low speeds, but I believe is always present, just not audible at higher speeds.
Any idea what this is coming from? I'm not sure getting new tires had anything to do with it, but that's when I noticed it.
