Hearing a constant and loud whining noise that coincides with RPM. Has progressively gotten louder over several months. Any suggestions? -

Get this checked immediately, it could be the timing belt tensioner and if that was to break, you're looking at thousands of dollars in repairs to the engine. How many miles do you have on the vehicle? -

Answer 2
115,000 miles -
