Still searching the problem of a whine/whistle noise. I took it to a transmission place an they said the noise is too high pitched for a tranny problem. I have isolated it to something on the serpentine belt. But I have also replaced the alternator, idler pulley, tensioner pulley, new serpentine belt, a/c tensioner and a/c belt. The noise stops when the serpintine belt is removed from the engine. With a stethoscope the power steering pump and water pump are real quiet. The new alternator is real noisy. The is a very distinct whine/whistle from the back side of the alternator. Could this new alternator be making the same noise as the old one, or is there some electrical issue here.
