2 problem posts in 1 week, I'm on a roll!
So I have a quite loud whining that rises with the engine speed as the title states, it's basically as loud as the engine itself. If I didn't know any better I'd think someone stuck on a supercharger running 15psi haha. I've noticed no driveability issues with it, but it's annoying and if it's something that could potentially become serious I'd rather take care of it now. The pitch doesn't change when I dry-steer so I don't think it's the PS pump, so in my head I've narrowed it down to either the water pump or alternator (while crossing my fingers that it's not the pump).
Anyone dealt with a whiny Path before? Is there a good trick for diagnosing it aside from using a stethoscope/long screwdriver?
