If it's a 2.5 liter engine, then you need an air bypass valve.

Cold weather squeal


Check your belts and pulleys. Belts should not be cracked and pulleys should turn freely with no noise.

Humming sound from cold air intake


Thats probably nothing to worry about, unless your car has problems driving in cold weather. If nothing happens and you just hear the hum, you'll be fine.

What would cause a new muffler system to be loud only during wet or cold weather?


do you want it to sound loud? if it's only during wet or cold weather it may be because your new muffler (if supposed to be loud) is for higher flow of gases and when the weather is cold there's more air flow to the engine. try replacing the air filter with a k&n drop in maybe you just need a little more boost. or you could replace the entire box with a cold air intake. up to you. also clean your MAF if you get the chance older cars specially imports tend to get dirty after the years

Noise coming from the rear end of my 2004 honda pilot it really only occurs during cold weather and after it warms up you hear it slightly


When does the noise occur, while driving only, or driving and idle, in gear, or in neutral and park? If it occurs all the time (while driving and at a stand still in cold weather) it could be the fuel pump. If it occurs only while driving, it may be a wheel bearing. Describe the noise (humming, grinding, whirring, etc), and what is the mileage on the Pilot? Answer my questions so I can fine tune my answer. Thanks!

My 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport makes a loud whistling noise (like a balloon when you let air out while pinching the opening) when I drive in cool or cold weather. It doesn't happen when it's warm out. If I...


It could be tons of different things , but being that the problem is more evident during cold weather , I'm inclined to think that the serpentine belt is loose.

Humming noise from Steering Wheel


I have frequently run into this problem. The "clock spring" in the steering column has a plastic case (shrinks when cold/expands when temperature warms up). It's a design flaw, not a defect. Replacing the clock spring usually eliminates the noise for awhile, but eventually it returns. It's one of those things that drives some people up the wall, but others just ignore it.

Mysterious car noise


Check the oil first, if it is low it will cause a host of noises in the engine.

It sounds like that may be the problem you have
