1999 996 Engine noise


Vehicle Information: Model: Carrera; Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 86k;

The motor has started to make a 'whining' sound that gets higher pitched as I accelerate. It's not so noticeable when I have the radio on whilst driving. Could it be it just needs a good tune up (I follow Porsche's exact service schedule), or does this sound more ominous. My daughter and I noticed a burning smell coming from under the car a few days ago, but it has since gone away. Please let me know your thoughts.
