See if you can pinpoint where the whining noise is coming from.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

After checking it just sounds like its from the engine kinda maybe narrowed it down to ether starter, crankshaft position sensor (since recently a coolant tube leaked and sprayed scolding hot coolant all over it ), or possibly something in the header area. Like I said radio and lights work but when i go to turn it on it seems like its on the edge of turning over but never does and sometimes during this there is a misfire type sound. I just cant for the life of me figure it out.
