1998 Nissan Maxima Whining / Whistle Sound

When driving my Nissan Maxima I always hear a whining / whistle sound when I press on the gas. I happens mainly between 40-50mph. When I am on the freeway the sound goes away. I have replaced my cv boots and axle. I have not replaced the drive belts and nissan tells me that I need to replace my rack and pinion because I have a leak. Are any of these factors the cause of this sound?

What is making this 08 caliber 2.0L sxt cvt have a High pitched whining sound at idle and driving?


Possible bearing in one of the drive pulleys. I have changed numerous alternators for this noise. Take the belt off and start the car. If the noise goes away you know it will be pulley related and not transmission related. If noise goes away, spin all pulleys by hand to determine the defective/noisy one

After oil change on 2010 mercury mariner I hear a whistle when i accellerate


Did you remove any plastic/metal splash shields under there to get to the oil plug/filter?
Make sure you put those back in correctly as they could catch air and make noise if put in wrong.

Other than that, I can't think of anything oil change related that would cause a whisteling sound.

Whistle noise


A whistling noise can be generated by an alternator at high RPM's and indicates a slip ring brush problem or a diode failing . It resembles a frequency whistle.. IT may also be from a leaking gasket and a partially blocked exhaust system from a failed cat converter and at speed and power, the exhaust gas is forced out the hole

Every time I press my gas in my car I hear this whining Noise and I'm trying to see what it is that whining noise


does the noise sound like its coming from your speakers? if so and if it gets louder with engine rpm it is called RFI (radio frequency interference) its coming from your alternator and being picked up by your radio and coming through your antenna. hope this helps.

Makes whining noise from windshield at or around 65 miles per hour.


that means you have a bad seal and air is whistleing through that. Does it still do it with wipers on,make sure hood is closed all the way also. and check moulding for loose,this could whistle also

Blazers in park = rattling noise ..... Blazers in drive = whining sound & while driving on interstate (ranging 35mph-65mph) I can feel it hesitate when I press on gas almost as if it can't (but it doe)...


have you had the catalytic converter checked. When they break apart they will make a rattle ling noise. eventually the broken pieces will plug the exhaust and cause a lack of power feeling. When the exhaust is cold hit the bottom of the catalytic converter with your hand. If it rattles it is bad and needs to be replaced.
