2005 Honda Accord Question: Engine Chirping

 

Question

Whenever I'm driving my car I hear a constant chirping coming from the front of the car. I'm assuming it has to be in the engine. It seems to speed up when I am traveling at higher speeds. I hear it best when I'm driving next to something solid and the sounds echos directly into the car. It will sometimes chirp as soon as I start the car. It's dfinitely something I'd like to get fixed.

    That sounds to me like it's a drive belt that may be a bit worn or loose making that sound. I'd recommend confirming it by taking it to a shop to have diagnosed by a technician who can check the belts. Good news is that it will probably not be too expensive to fix if that is indeed what the sound is.

    If its a chirping sound that you hear at speed traveling next to a traffic dividing wall, I am wondering could it be out at the wheel? Perhaps a wheel trim, wheel bearing, or even brake pad sensor or dislocated brake pad hardware.
