Default Whining noise from engine

Hello everyone,
I have a 2003 PT Cruiser, I have been hearing the sound of a whining noise like a bearing is going out in the engine. My car has 117,000.00 miles on it, and everything seem to be working good except for this noise. Can you tell me what the problem could be, and could I fix this myself? I have had the timing belt and water pump done at 90,000
Thank you,
Leroy
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Leroy,

Sorry to hear about your noise but there's just not enough information to go on to pin point what the problem is. First of all, is it a Turbo or Turbo Lite or neither? Does the noise change with speed of the engine? Try to have someone experience stand by the open engine compartment and listen for the noise and see if they can isolate it.

I do not have a turbo engine, the noise is coming from around were the power steering pump is. Could there be a bearing going out in a pulley for the belts?
Thank you for any input on this problem.

Check your tensioner pully. Apparently the bearings in mine froze. At least it's an easy thing to get at.

Thank you,
I did not know that my car had a tensioner pully for the belt. I had this fixed on my RV when it was making the same noise. It looks like that will be the first thing that I check to see if that is the problem. I would think that you are right about this, again thank you for the information.
