Hello all. I've been reading the posts on this board for awhile and it seems like this is a good group. The reason for my post is that I have a whining noise coming from the engine ('93 Northstar). At first, due to my unfamiliarity with the Northstar I thought it may be the serpentine belt, or that the power steering pump was low on fluid, as it it kind of like a turbo "whine" that increases in pitch with higher rpm. Upon closer inspection, the noise seems to be coming from under the intake cover on the right center of the engine. Has anyone experienced this before, or know what the likely culprit may be? The motor has only 95,000 miles, runs very well and does not overheat at all. The noise does not diminish much, if at all as the engine warms up. I've changed the oil twice since I've had it (3,000 miles), as well as the serpintine belt, water pump belt, water pump (THAT was fun!) and have plans for a new exhaust. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
