Squeaks or Squeals. If it squeals then you should check all of the drive belts on the engine for tension.

SOURCE: wont accelerate past 20 mph

Check to see if your air intake is cracked or has seperated at one of the joints. If you have an after market short ram or cold air intake the piping does not always stay together and a massive influx of unfiltred air will cause this phenomenon you are speaking of. Also check for intake vaccuum leaks.

Where is the IAT sensor

Although I am not familiar with your specific engine, the intake air temp sensor must be located in the air intake box or somewhere in the air stream between there and the throttle body. Usually located just after the air filter to give good reading of outside air temp.

Engine has a slight whistling noise, increses with acceleration.

Lift the hood and listen to the engine while it's running and see if you can locate where the noise is coming from. Check to see if all your cold air intake connections on the engine are tight and check all your vacuum hoses. Do you have an aftermarket cold air intake on your vehicle? They improve air flow into the intake but may increase intake noise.

Loud squeaking and rattling when you accelerate after a stop

Is the underside rusty? If so, take it to a qualified welding and autobody repair shop to have new metal welded on.

Your symptoms sound like the engine or transmission mounts may have deteriorated.

Clean/Inspect Intake, MAF sensor, IAC valve for proper operation. Also check for vacuum leaks within the air intake hose and intake components. Hopefully this helps
