I have a 2000 mercury grand marquis and there is loud whining noise that sounds like its coming from the air filter hose . What could this be?

Have you removed air filter housing cover and checked condition of your air filter ? If so, then remove air housing and hoses up to the throttle and see if noise is still there.
You may have loose intake clamps, check all and tighten.

Information on how to remove oil filter housing

Removing your oil filter housing is a simple task with the correct tools. You will need to evacuate the oil in the drain pan before removing the filter housing. You need a torx bit to remove the housing. The oil filter housing is located near the distributor cap. You can unbolt the housing by unscrewing the torx bolt on the outside of the neck. The filter and the housing will come out.

Whining when i press gas

normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.

oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

It's making a whining noise and it won't go into reverse, I changed the transmission filter and it is still doing it.

the whining noise is the torque converter and trans oil pump,this needs replacement,reverse is probably clutch pack or a gear set

2007 volvo s40. engine has a whining noise however when the oil cap is removed the noise goes away. If i put my hand over the oil fill hole the suction is very strong and the noise comes back. too much...

You will need to change the oil filter housing and the hose that attaches to it, the amount of vacum going thru this box has changed causing an excess in the crank case. do not drive for you may cause damage to cam and crank seals
