Noise 1999 ford contour

When i start my1999 ford contour in the morning it makes a loud noise I thought it was from the intake since it seems to go away as it warms up and as i press on the gas and especially in the cold months gets worse hardly does it in the summer

    My air filter housing has not been modified and this noise has been going on for over a year so should i just replace idle air control valve and see if that is the problem

    I have the same problem on my 99 svt, but it doesn't matter if its cold or hot. It's almost a wierd huming vibration, i don't know if it affects anything though.

    At low speeds or idling engine, my car would make a horribly loud, what I called, banshee noise. It'd go away at higher speeds, but I think even then I could get the sound on the highway.



    For me, it was the idle air control. There was also a part that was mis-replaced that was corrected at the same time.

The sound is comming from your intake
has your air filter housing been modified in any way or is it missing a part?
what you are hearing is the idle air control solonoid opening up and allowing alot of air into the engine .

water gets in past the membrane under the inside door trim, from blocked drain holes under the door, from rust holes in the phylum chamber at the bottom of the windscreen. If you had work done on the doors then the membrane has not been properly sealed up after the job.
