Question type: Maintenance & Repair

5 months ago, I had the timing belt and water pump replaced. Recently, an intermittent, high pitched whining sound has started, seemingly from the water pump area. The water pump was replaced last week. Now the sound is back. The car has been running perfectly. Any ideas as to what the noise could be? This is getting costly!

i have seen several of these vehicle have a whining noise start after the timng belt has been off or replaced because the tensioner is too tight on the belt. if it sounds like it coming from behid the timing cover and increases with engine rpms thhis is probably it. hopefully this helps you out
