    help needed!

    hi all, right i have a astra mk4 sxi 1.8 16v!

    and when i start the engine, i get a whinning noise and if i rev it, it gets louder! its not the cambelt!

    i first thought maybe its the power steering but the bottles full and when i out the steering on lock the noise stays the same!

    any ideas?

    maybe need a new drive belt?



    thanks ash

    Could be the AUX Belt?

    My car makes a ticking kinda noise (Can't describe it not tappets / tapping) When i rev it it gets louder but once warmed up its ok? Another member has heard it. We thinks its the aux belt and tensioner? Still gotta get it checked and sorted
