Question about 2007 Land Rover Freelander

2 Answers

My 2007 Land Rover Freelander makes a whistling sound when vehicle is idling. Sound goes away when accelerating or applying petrol?

High pitch whistling sound when vehicle is stationary. The sound disappears when you press the accelerator. Even when the vehicle is moving at high speed and you take your foot off the accelerator the sound comes back. The sound was there for a few weeks, disappeared for a few months and has now come back. Vehicle performing fine otherwise

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak; try to locate it by standing in front and on both sides of the engine with the hood open - STAY CLEAR OF MOVING BELTS AND PARTS! It can often be as simple as replacing a rubber cap or plug.

It may be a turbocharger if so equipted, lots of turbocharged cars whistle as the unit gets older..only other thing I can think of is something with the exhaust system.. get it looked at by putting the car up on a lift and inspecting it..now some cars also whistle thru the radio ..this is called alternator whine and is usually correected by a filter in the power line of the radio...good luck

check the serp. belt for glazing ont he smooth side and for cracks on the side with all the ribs, if you have either, it's time to replace it. either way, you should remove the belt and spin and rock each pulley back and forth to check for wear or grinding. alsoif this squealing happens only with your ac or windshield defrost on, it's possible that your ac compressor has seized.

Makes high pitch whistle


Do you have the brakes taken apart once a year,
on all your vehicles, for rust removal,inspection,
needed work & lubing,that is required
Have to flush brake fluid every 2 years, if you
don't want moisture in the system ruining it
Don't know what the noise is,work on the
brakes & then get back to the noise, if it's
still there

I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler that has a high pitch SQUEALING sound when I release the accelerator. Any ideas what's causing it or how to fix it?.


I know i have the same problem, and i also noticed than when i open the Hood the whistle just stops, so i figure out it must be some air cycling in or out osmewhere, I found out my air intake connected to throttle body was misplaced a weird gap was left open allowing air to whistle. u might wanna check there
