Q: My car make a winning sound when I accelerate the engine

My car make a winning sound it get louder as I go faster

My car has 214569 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

A whining sound that occurs while you’re engine is accelerating is commonly caused by a worn out or loose drive or serpentine belt that needs to be replaced. In some cases, the belt will become loose because the pulley is damaged; which is why it’s customary to replace the belt pulley’s when you replace the belts. To correctly diagnose this issue however, I’d recommend having a professional mechanic complete an engine is making a noise inspection first.
