High pitched noise from under the hood.

so ever since I had the car this noise has been annoying me. It's on and off.

it's a really high pitch noise while the car is idling. If I even rev the engine slightly it goes away, then comes back on as soon as I stop.

I'm guessing a belt or loose bearing, but I really have no idea what it is and it's hard to pin point.

any ideas?

Re: High pitched noise from under the hood.

sounds like you need to replace the belts to me. hard to tell though, you didnt give us much to go off of

Re: High pitched noise from under the hood.

Do you by any chance have the AC on? Try turning it off and on and see if it makes a difference. But your description sounds like a drive-belt problem.

Re: High pitched noise from under the hood.

yeah, the AC does seem to have a higher chance of triggering it. Serpentine belt maybe?
