    I have the same issue but I have one by one disconnected the power steering belt- I still get the loud noise, Then I disconnected the alternator belt and still the same noise. The only thing left on the car is the timing belt-what is left?

My jeep grand Cherokee makes a very loud high pitched noise but when I push the throttle it goes away. As soon as a release the gas pedal it comes back. What could this be?

Belt's are loose. Or a part of the motor is about to go out. Try the Belt's first if not that then a part is about to out 1 day look's for leakes like water exc hope this Help's...

Whistling from engine

This is a symptom of the inlet manifold gasket having a leak.The whistling is air going in through the small leak/hole in the gasket.With the throttle butterfly shut,air is getting sucked in the only way it can.Try tightening the inlet manifold bolts 1st.But more than likely the gasket needs replacing.Hope this helps

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer that has a vacuum or intake leak. I can hear a high pitched whistling sound that goes up and down with the throttle while going down the road. It also gets a low pitched hum...

best way to find a vac leak is get a can of engine start, with the engine running spray it around the intake but not into it, be carful not to get any on the exhaust. If there is a leak the engine revs will increase due to the engine start being sucked in.

My car is a 03 mazdaspeed protege. After about a twenty minute drive it starts making a high pitched whistle sound. When i give it some gas it stops but when i let off it comes back.

This could be caused the idle speed control valve as air passes through it, have seen this issue on other models many times, clean the valve first, if the noise persists replace it.
