SOURCE: BATTERY DIES OUT IN 2-3 DAYS.
are you saying that you got this battery from autozone? I went thru three batteries in a week from autozone because the lot# was bad. It,'s quite possible that you have either a short that is draining the battery or that the alternator isnt charging properly. To do a fast check, start the car then remove the positive battery cable with the car running. If it stays running, theres a chance its ok. If it dies, It's most likely the alternator or the voltage regulator Diods. On most cars, the voltage regulator is built into the alternator. I would take it to autozone and have the charging system checked

You may have an engine vacuum leak/bad fuel system or electrical fault.With the loud whistling sound id go with vacuum leak.find where that noise is coming from and block it off to stop it leaking if it is a vacuum hose or other leak,Make sure your air box and tube to the throttle body are not loose and correctly mounted.Is the air filter clean and air box properly locked down so it can only get air from the intake tube and to the throttle body ?

Check the voltage at the battery. It should be in the 12.5+ volt range. Check your connections also to be sure they are clean and tight. A quick check to see if there is enough juice to crank the engine over is to turn the ignition switch to start and at the same time honk the horn. If the horn blows and the starter does not crank, you probably have a bad starter.
The starter is located on the radiator side of the engine block and is held to the transaxle by 2 bolts. Follow the positive cable to the starter. Hope this helps;

I have the same car I had the same problem.If you have the correct battery for your car with the same problem you have a short or positive ground in your dash/electric fuel pump/fuse box also be carefull of how you take the key from the ignition and if they're old replace them.
