Weird Noise, any ideas (with video)
 
Not sure how to describe the sound. It sounds like a small plane maybe?

Like a high pitch gears turning?

Only when I accelerate and the sound can be heard outside the car too, around the engine.

Give a listen, any ideas?

More information is needed for members here to aid in identifying the possible cause of the sound.

For example;
Is it auto or manual...?
How many miles...?
What was happening when the sound first started...?

Automatic.

83,000 miles. Been sounding like that for 2-3 years.

Purchased new in 2003.

It`s impossible to deduce anything from 8 seconds of crappy video....

Get serious, dude....that`s like asking a doctor to diagnose you by hearing you fart over the phone....

teamfalcon 09-12-2012 12:58 PM

Thanks anyway....first time I've ever had such a negative response when asking for help.

Thanks for your input anyway.

Next time, try constructing your scenario in a way that will generate a more favorable response....what the hell did you expect, asking us to try and determine what`s wrong from THAT ???? You gotta be kidding me....

teamfalcon 09-12-2012 02:59 PM

I get it Bob...thanks for your feedback.
