#1 of 33 whining from engine
Aug 31, 2009 (7:28 am)
So I have put about 10 K on my 07 azera limited. The engine makes a whining noise that seems to get louder as you accelerate. It is a constant noise and I am almost out of warranty but the dealer is less than freindly. Has anyone had this problem and if so what was it?
I was thinking of going to a private mechanic to see what it is then go to the dealer with more evidence (what is the deal with huyndai dealers).
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

as a side not for more info the car has around 48K and I am the second owner. From what I understand I only have the warranty until 50K.

No, you have warranty of 5 Years/60k miles. So, you still have 12k miles of warranty.
Take your car to your local Hyundai dealer. It should be covered under warranty. (Unless the previous owner didn't maintain it properly, like not changing oil, performing the required 15k, 30k services done etc.)

My problem is the dealers (went to two of them) completely ignored the noise and played it off as if it was normal. It is loud and intrusive. A friend said it may be the flywheel (admitting I really have no clue about mechanics). Do you have any suggestions as to what that noise may come from. If I go to a third dealer what should I say to them to have them take it seriously?

Yes, you may need to go to a 3rd dealer. But before you do it, maybe you can get it checked independently at a trusted mechanic shop & let them say what could be wrong. Then, go to a 3rd dealer & say that 'a friend suggested that there might be a problem with this.'.
If that dealership also doesn't seem to care, it is time to move up the ladder. Talk to Hyundai regional manager & call up the Hyundai customer service.

Do you hear the whining when the car is parked and you rev the engine a bit? Does the steering wheel position have any effect on the noise?

The noise is constant. It does it when the car is sitting still (in any gear) and it gets louder as you rev the engine in park or neutral or accelerate in gear. The steering wheel position does not have any effect on the noise.

Had the same problem with my 06, it's the belt tensioner pulley. I put some grease on it, went away for a while, but came back. Had dealership change it out. Traded this POS in this weekend. I will never buy one of these cars again. Every single problem on this forum I had with this car

It does sound like one of the accessory bearings.
