Car has sat for a week in garage just started her up and there is a higher pitch engine whir/whine . Seems hard to locate. Turning into a costly caper these older cars. Car is a 1998 1.9 with 87000 miles.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWPeGdS ... e=youtu.be
Listening to it, could be alternator or water pump. Get a long screwdriver, or some other long metal implement and rest it on various components with the other end against your ear. You should be able to narrow down the source, but take care. We don't want any accidents.
I am thinking alternator. I had a burnt electric smell today with my new battery needed a jump from a boost pack. I am not too sure if it is an easy swap over or not. Looks a bit confined. I have found a new one with 12 months warranty for £90. Hopefully I can swap it out my self.
