SOURCE: loud wizzing/whistling noise

i don't know terms or names but i had the same problem. i found for me it was a whistling coming from the black box w/ hose and air filter that is on the right as you look under the hood. I opened it up and re sealed it and the noise is gone. Sorry I don't know the proper names but for me no more annoying whistle while the engine revs.

SOURCE: when i give my car gas a whistle comes from the engine. It's a high pitch continual sound. When i let off the gas the whistle stops. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the block.70k miles Thun

Sounds like a vacume leak, chk. for a cracked or broken vacume line or maybe one came off. Does it idle ruff? With it running open hood and listen for a low pitch whistle you may have to rev it up a little.

Take out the cabin air filter that is in the plenum behind the glove box. This will lessen the noise but you should get the unit serviced soon.

Whistling when accelerating outlander turbo diesel


turbo whistle is common as it comes from the tips of the compressor wheel passing through the sound barrier and the turbulence occurs. IN the older trucks you would the turbo whistle as the engine reached full RPM just before a gear change. In smaller engine it is not do noticeable as there is an excess of air pressure that keeps the compressor wheel at a lower rpm and the pressure is dumped out. Turbo compressors reach revolutions in excess of 120.000 rpm under full load If it has just started to make the noise then check the intercooler system for leaks--loose clamps--- splits - Have the turbo compressor checked for damaged fins from the ingress of fine dirt from a bad air filter---check the air filter is not blocked as the turbo speed may result from running in a partial vacuum ( no load on the compressor wheel)

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
