whine

  1. Noise and vibrations when steering

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ever since I got my Alfa it has had whining steering on slow speeds. I did some research online and found out that the power steering reservoir and fluid are messed up from the factory so I did replace the reservoir and ran about 2.5 liters of green hydraulic fluid through the system(return hose...
  2. What is this whine I am hearing?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, My Giulia Veloce has only done 500 miles. I am hearing a whine in the background when I take my foot off the throttle. Even if going on normal 30mph roads. No need to accelerate quickly necesarily to get the noise. That is when it is obvious as less wind noise. Cheers all.
  3. Whining noise consistent with speed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Good afternoon, I have an Alfa 159 SW 1.9 JDTM 2010. I have a whining noise that seems to be coming from somewhere in the engine bay. It's sounds like it is a loose bearing or something; whirring and whining. It is only consistent with car speed - not revs or gears. The faster I go, the...
  4. Do I have the infamous M32 whine?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As title really.. I've noticed an odd noise when driving - it sounds as if it's coming through the vents.. It doesn't sound much like a whine at the moment, but it only occurs when I'm in gear... It also appears to die down once the engine is warm.. Could it be the start of the infamous...
  5. 2005 GT power steering sudden whine

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Folks, On way home tonight and my power steering developed a bad whining noise. When car is idle i get a noise as soon as i tough the steering wheel. I checked fluid and looks a horrible dirty brown colour which I'm assuming is not right. Level seems ok and power steering works...
  6. 159 / 939 Power Steering pump pulley whine

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I have an RPM-related whine coming from the belt end of my 2009 2.4 159. TI Autos say it briefly abated when WD40 was sprayed on the power steering pump pulley, and this is the likely culprit. At this point I'd already ordered most of the pulleys from the auxiliary belt (alternator...
  7. Unidentified whine at speed - M32 Dread..?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ever since I've taken ownership of my 159SW TBi I've noticed a speed-related whine, faint but it's there. The previous owner has painstakingly maintained the car (I actually have a service history dating back to the original order for the car!) but I dread the notorious M32 gearbox... On the...
  8. Dreaded gearbox whine

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am starting to lose patience and money with my alfa 159, I love the car but I have owned it for 5 months and i have already replaced the timing chain and now I have noticed a whine form the gearbox, most notably in 5th. Can this be saved by changing the gear oil or has it gone too far? the...
  9. Gearbox whine (with video).

    Alfa MiTo
    Had to drive through some flooded roads 2 weeks ago with the mito and it developed a whining noise that varies with road speed (irrespective of engine rpm). Starts at 50km/h and gets worse up to 80km/h. Video here: https://youtu.be/XkfnNxcFDYA I tried to swing the steering both ways in the vid...
  10. 159 selespeed gearbox whine

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all I have a whine from my 2008 159 selespeed gearbox with 110ks. I first thought it was an outer wheel bearing (it could well be) but we jacked the car up took off the front left wheel put it into D and then put a long screw driver just above the out put drive shaft and you could hear and...
  11. MiTo QV Making a loud whine sound when reversing onto my driveway

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone, I have been reading a few things on here about some people experiencing similar things. My beloved QV has started making a horrible whine when reversing onto the drive, its really loud! Sounds like Chewbacca in pain, probably the best way to describe the sound. My drive does have a...

    I've noticed a slight whine from the gearbox which stops when i press the clutch so is that the clutch release bearing thats failing or isit the gearbox ? The car is a 1.9 159 which has done 82,000 miles ...
  13. Gearbox whine in 3rd and 4th

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Good morning all Here's one for you... After spending loads on wheel bearings and brake calipers amongst other things, my late 2007 159 1.9jtdm has decided to make strange noises in 3rd and 4th gears. It is whining constantly regardless of revs - almost grinding. I suspect the worst but would...
  14. GTA Power Steering

    Alfa GTA
    Afternoon people. A while back I bought a good used GTA power steering pump with the view to having it refurbished as a spare to put in the 'shed'. I noticed just recently that there is a very low pitched whine while using the unholy amount of steering lock I need to get out of the side streets...
  15. Gearbox whine fixed!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My Spider 2.2 came out of winter hibernation a few weeks ago and I could detect a very faint whine coming from the left side. I knew about Andy from A&S clutch tecnology in Halifax from searching and reading about his experience with the M32 gearbox. Some people on here have mentioned him...
  16. Brera Power Steering Whine / Groan

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. I've got the dreaded power steering whine / groan. At first it would only happen on cold mornings and would disappear after a few miles of driving. Now it's terribly loud (which is extremely embarrassing and quite worrying) and doesn't disappear when the car is warm. interesting if I...
  17. Power Steering Pump whine

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, Noticed an increasing whine from my PAS pump in recent weeks, it's always had a slight whine under stress and this appears to be getting slightly worse. Its a PH1 (I think!), 96' TS 2.0 Spider. On checking levels etc the fluid appears to be OK, but just wondering if this is a common fault...
  18. Alfa GT Jtdm Gearbox Whine

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, New here and as is usual a problem seems to be the reason to post rather than saying hi! (HI!!) Bought a GT 1.9 Jtdm a couple of months ago and have been loving it. Few little bugs to fix (like a leaking swirl valve!) but otherwise it's been a pleasure to own and drive. However (isn't...
  19. New Brera owner - Steering column whine (video)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I've finally bought a Brera after having a giulietta and a 156 in the past and I'm made up with the car! I bought it as a second vehicle and got it very cheap so knew it would need a few jobs doing. The interior quality, to me, is a lot better than the giulietta in terms of plastics etc...
  20. ABS light on after rear O/S hub change for bearing whine

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Wondered if any suggestions regarding my last repair I've just finished, Due to a rear bearing whine from rear at 30mph onward ... unfortunately as the noise is till there after hub swap seems the bearing noise must be driver side.. problem is I used a hub from a 2001 916 and my car is 1999...
