Right, this is a long shot but thought i would ask.

When my car is running i have a very high pitch squeal coming from the engine. The car seems to run fine still. Any idea of what i can look for to find out why its making this noise?

Thanks

would say either the belt or the power steering pump, does the noise change when you turn the steering wheel? does it change with engine speed?

It just gets faster as I go faster

I have been told its a belt and tensioner? Are they a lot to get done?

belt and tensioner shouldn't be that much, if you give us a call I can look the price up for you.
