It sounds like the cylinder is part of the emission control system. It is probably a valve which is stuck inside. Remove it and clean it with wd-40. If this doesn't work, let me know.

Why is humming noise that gets loud and then go away coming from area of my air filter


Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor. This helps about half the times. The other half would be to replace them. Or live with it. They are still working.

Toyota tacoma makes sqeeky noise loud when engineis cold and not so loud when hot


Most likely first check your fan belt or power steering belt. Its probably stretched and needs replacing. If this is not the case you might need to have a mechanic look at it

Car idles very high when first started then a loud humming noise mechanic says its an air diverter valve


He is probably right. It is part of the fuel injection intake near the air filter. Change the air filter if it needs it and check the air filter box and make sure it is sealed correctly. There may be a gasket that keeps that box sealed correctly.

Loud hum from under the hood. heavy vibration fron air filter all the way to top of engine


Hello,
I think the loud hum is coming from the exhurst. The exhurst either has a cut/hole or the rubber holding the exhurst has removed. This will make the exhurst begin to shake and vibrate.
Turn on the car, go under the car, then ask someone to press the throttle. This will reveal where the vibration is coming from.
Keep me posted.
Good luck.
