Default Whining sound when accelerating

I need a little advice please! When I press the accelerator my car starts making a noise that I can only describe as a quiet kazoo, the more I press the accelerator the faster and louder it gets, when I take my foot off it slows and quietens slowly, it doesn’t make the noise when the car is stationary.

any advice would be appreciated!!

Hello,

From your description I think the sound you hear is the turbo (if your car is HDI). My 308 1.6HDI has the same sound a little bit louder when is colder outside

My car hasn’t got turbo...
also, sorry, Forgot to say that the noise doesn’t happen when my cars idling, but it still sounds when I put my foot on the accelerator when it’s not in gear.

It might help if you told us exactly what "my car" is. You might know but the rest of us are not telepathic.

Additional info includes - 1.4 engine - 2009 - petrol - 5 door.

Obvious that it's a 308, but then you have quite a choice of engines and gearboxes.

If it's anything like my car it might be noise from the stereo or something. I noticed it in mine and it's worse when I have my little Bluetooth device plugged in to the cigarette lighter. Turn the radio off completely and it went away. Hope this helps you

I have exactly the same noise when accelerating. I find it improves if I leave my wife at home.

Hi I have a similar issue but mine is to do with my clutch. If I'm driving along and have the noise it disappears if I lightly touch the clutch while in gear and driving along. Now I'm not suggesting this is your problem or you drive with a light foot on your clutch, just a mere suggestion of trying it to see if your noise goes when you try it. My mechanic advised the clutch can't be adjusted and I will only get rid of the noise when I get a new clutch so I'm going to live with it as it's not slipping and the biting point isn't high up either.

Your description reminds me strongly of the one I had, which was caused by the alternator belt idler pulley bearing. This can be confirmed by putting the blade of a screwdriver to the bearing support, and the handle to your ear. Probably best to replace the tensioner, belt and idler at the same time.
