You are in the Hyundai Azera
What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Azera, Engine, Sedan

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.

This is why (and has been discussed at great length under the Genesis forum) Hyundai is going to have to get their dealers in line if they are going to be successful with the Genesis and Equus. My Father owned an Excel in mid to late 80's and I had 2 Sonatas (one totaled). The last one I forced Hyundai to take back as a lemon for full costs in 1998. I swore I would never own another Hyundai also due to dealer in Dothan, Alabama.
Hyundai has come a LONG WAYsince then (I LOVE my Azera!), but their dealers have a TREMENDOUS WAY TO GO (of course, there are exceptions )
#12 of 33 Engine whine noise

I have the same whine. When I took off the belt it went away. I checked the idlers and alt bearing and they all seamed to be ok. Sounds like finnwolf found the problem. Was it taken care of under warranty? We like the car and our dealer has been very good so far.

Wow- Mine is doing the same thing, for about a month now. It sounds more like a growling noise, but is constant with the ngine running and louder when accelerating, and no difference between being in gear or neutral / park. I am going to the dealer here in LA next week to have it looked at. I'll let you know what happens.
