RSX Whining Noise from Engine ? (W/ Youtube Video)

04 Base Auto. I don't know what's going on. It sounds like a supercharger, but obviously not so I need to get it fixed. The sound is best heard at 1600rpm, the higher it goes the more drowned out the sound becomes as I go faster. I can hear it in all gears. Sound is also there when I start up my car and in neutral.

Anyone know what the sound is??

Also, A/C is off, and everything seems normal and drives normal. No CEL. what is it??

Yes I can hear it as soon as I start the car.

Here is another video I just uploaded of the car parked, getting started up, and revving it a liittle. Sound is still very noticeable.

Any ideas?

blueberrydc5: p/s = power steering? not sure, but would a power steering pump still sound like that even though I'm parked and not turning the wheel??

The p/s fluid just looked dirty the last time i checked. It wasn't low or anything. I'll have another look tomorrow.

I'm gonna take it to a mechanic tomorrow as well to see what he can tell me first before I pay anything (hopefully, hah ).

So I think the problem has been fixed:

I took it to the mechanic yesterday and he told me the sound was from the A/C compressor's bearing (FYI my A/C cools and works perfectly even before the whining sound). He was able to get to the bearing instead of replacing the whole compressor, and now it sounds much quieter and much better.

I can still hear a VERY SLIGHT whine, but only when i rev up. I think that's normal??

At least I can hear the sound of my engine now instead of that whine.
He gave me a 3 month, 3k mile warranty.

It could be your power steering pump's bearing. I am having the same problem too! It really doesn't show up till a bit higher than what you were reving at in the Youtube vid. I am hoping if I replace that, it will quiet down. let me know.

Did the problem ever come back? What was the down time for the bearing replacement? Mine is still making the same noise!
