I'm getting a whine from the front area of the engine. It sounds too clear to be anything "inside" the engine, although it could be coming from under the valve cover. My guess is that it's the starter because I've had that replaced and I think it's stuck "on" and is making the whining noise.

I took it out for a test spin, and there are no indications that it's anything engine related. The car drives perfectly.

Since it could be related... I was at the track last Sunday but for all the times I started and stopped the car I never encountered this problem, and I drove it a good 40 minutes home with no problems too.

Has anybody experienced this?

Looks like it's the belts, and most likely the tensioner. The guy at the shop I took it to said the belt seems to be driving towards the motor as opposed to the center of the pully...

Anybody experienced this? Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
