My guess is a pulley or bearing. Open the hood and have someone pinpoint the area of the noise. Listen around the drive belts.

most likely a belt or bearing. cheap easy fix.

TS, lay it on me...in private...I'm a good listener-


It's not a super charge

I agree with regal, belts and pulleys tend to squeal and bearings tend to grind, I'm not saying they don't whine, just saying its not as common as a P/S pump.

@ilregal it has like 65, 000 miles on it but thanks ims get it looked at this weekend


I didn't even see what you had written before and yes that supercharger whine will make the little dogs and their civics get back on the porch.

chickenlittle33...that's cute!


Remember when ford tried supercharging their Thunderbird 3800 and it barely made as much HP as GM's N/A 3800. GM is where the performance is. I would like to get my hands on a late 80s GNX, or a late 60s grand sport with the 455, stage 1, turn on the AC and smoke tires through second gear.


1970 gs 455 stage 1, just look at the beautiful body lines


I fount out the problem my tension belt and alternator needs to be changed

guess that's what grandmaster Tom said in the first entry....yay.
