Question about Cars & Trucks
I would be doing the simple checks first . Open the bonnet and check the drive belt on the power steering pump to see if it is good and tensioned as what you describe sounds like a loose / failing belt. If you have a fan that is connected to the water pump grab hold of a blade and see if you can move the unit back and forth ( failed bearings ). Check any other drive belts as well. Check oil level in sump and transmission (if auto) and check water level in radiator at the cap. IT is good if you can get some idea as to what is wrong first so that the dealer cannot put it over you.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

I had the same problem on my 2006 Lucerne and it was the engine mount located on the front of the vehicle behind the radiator.

I have the exact same problem, however reversed. My whistling sound stops when I accelerate and starts when my foot is off the accelerator. Frustrates me and am afraid to have it looked at for fear of the cost of fixing this problem. Have you since discovered what the problem is or was?
