A few months ago I was getting a high pitched whistling noise. So we went and bought a few things. A new battery, tensioner belt, cooling fan, water pump. Afterwords the noises stopped. Last night they came back. Also I've been having trouble starting my car. Is the problem my alternater or is this a vacuum leak?
