Have you had any belts changed recently?

An over tightened belt can cause a whirry/whining noise, in my case we over tightened my new cam belt :eek:

The cambelt isnt self adjusting, the tensioner is set manually!

Im only talkin from experience here but when i did mine a bit too tight it made a whiney noise!
