    Just got a accord ctdi and it's got a whine that gets louder with the revs only, just had new clutch and flywheel but the whine is still there does everyone know what it could be

    Sound like turbo whine.Mine used to do it from cold but not bad once warmed up.
    Also check all hoses,some might be lose or not connected properly.

    Its DEF not turbo sounds like its coming from the alternator belt area

    Sounds more like a bearing or pulley whine

    Hmm,does your air con compressor works ok?
    On my previous Accord compressor was starting to seize and i had to change it but no noise of any kind.Take the belt off and spin all pulleys(A/C,alternator etc) by hand and see if the noise is coming from any of them.Just a thought.

    Just recharged the A/C so not that but will check the others thanks

    Hi am welcome have a look at this thread

    it could be that or your engine is showing the first sign of timing chain rattle, either way get it checked out quickly by a trained technician with Honda diesel knowledge.
