Mix a bit of soap and water and spray near the sound to determine from where the sound is coming, and post more information. If it's a gas car, try not to spray much water on wires like spark plugs or coils. Post information like make and model of car. Engine size, turbo or not, diesel or gas? Not much to go on here. Could be a small vacuum leak or a busted manifold, a bad intercooler, who knows with this bit of info?
Have you tired spraying some dry lock cylinder lube into the key opening to free top the lock? try that and see if that works if not you will need a locksmith to change the key cylinder or remove it. Do not use anything like WD40 Us dry spray in Graphite powder lock lube.
There are many potential problems but first buy some spray MAF cleaner and clean the mass air flow sensor. It will set you back less than $10. Do not stick anything into the sensor. Just let the cleaner do the work.. Allow it to dry completely before installing. The link above will give you more avenues to help you diagnose the problem.
Check out the MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR (MAF), it's located inside the air intake manifold right after the air filter assembly. It's a tiny sensor that you should use electrical spray cleaner on. Spray it and let it dry (10 min.), then reassemble. It should also make your car run smoother and get 5 more miles to the gallon. This sensor is never cleaned and can make an older car feel powerless. Once it's clean you'll think you have a new car. Oh, don't touch the sensor. Just spray it real good and let it dry.
chances are you just have water in one of the spark plug boots take off the spark plug wires one at a time and dry them out with a paper towel a spray can of electric contact cleaner will help to get rid of the water do not use wd-40.
The 7MGE has 2 separate valve covers/gaskets with 8 screws holding each cover that will loosen over time.
Find the phillips screws holding on the covers and retighten snugly by hand do not overtighten! Pull plug boots/wires by the boot not the wire and use paper towels or rags on a long screwdriver etc to absorb the oil from the wells.
Carefully clean plug boots with spray brake cleaner (avoid spraying anything but the boot) and let dry.
Apply 100%silicone grease to inner boot before reinstalling to allow future removal without damage.
If your engine is particularly dirty you may need to remove the covers first and clean all mating surfaces then reinstall.
If your rear brakes are making the noise take off the rear drums and spray some brake clean in there on both shoes and the drum let all parts dry which wont take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute or two depending on the brake clean also if you want you can have someone take a piece of emry cloth to your front rotors and scuff them up a bit with about 80 to 100 grit emry and spray them and the pads off with brake clean let it dry to you can emry the pads to this will get most if not all the glaze on pads and rotors.
