Whining sound Nissan Almera 1.8 N16 2004 Hatchback

Asked by: 22 views Noises Question

I have just bought a Nissan Almera 1.8 from 2004 with a manual transmission.
One thing i have noticed, is that it makes a slight whining sound that will pitch up with the engine speed, and then the whining will disappear when the engine speed increasing,
or if i press the clutch pedal down.
I have recorded the noise here https://instaud.io/1RR6
It also has a weird sound on cold starts, which i also recorded https://instaud.io/1TxK
what could be the problem?
Help is much appreciated!
All the best 🙂

    Hello, I think the sound comes from the heat shields around the exhaust pipe, try to rub them and see if there are not loose.

    Another possibility for a whining sound is to feel on the serpentine-belts to the generator, ac etc. Tighten them up abit to see if it helps 🙂

    Thank you very much for your answer,
    Its funny you mention this because the exhaust needs to be changed, but didnt thought that it could make that kind of noise.
    Thank you very much again, now i know what to look for.

    All the best

    Hope you will solve it. If you checked the heat shields on the exhaust and it’s not the problem, tell me and we’ll figure it out 🙂
