Did you remove any plastic/metal splash shields under there to get to the oil plug/filter?
Make sure you put those back in correctly as they could catch air and make noise if put in wrong.

Other than that, I can't think of anything oil change related that would cause a whisteling sound.

I've seen that sound before. Check the transmission oil level. That sometimes causes a whining sound.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like a vacuume leak, use some carb cleaner in a spray can and gently spray the engine. When you find the leak the engine will stumble, check in that area for the leak.

hi,

make sure your vacuum advance doesent have a slow leak, attach a spare piece of vac hose to the vac advance mod on the distrributor and s u c k on that hose., it should hold air and not leak make sure you dont have any other vacuum leaks. the vac mod on the tranny could have the same problem. open the jets on the carb a little by turning counterclockwise, you see the engine mellow out. theres two screws up under the front of the carb might need a rebuild, fuel filter could be half clogged. and then re time the engine..

Most likely one of the transmission cooling lines which go from the transmission to the side of one or the radiator expansion tanks has rusted through. It is making that noise because you are driving it with no transmission fluid in it. If you continue to drive it you will break the trasmission.

Whistle noise


A whistling noise can be generated by an alternator at high RPM's and indicates a slip ring brush problem or a diode failing . It resembles a frequency whistle.. IT may also be from a leaking gasket and a partially blocked exhaust system from a failed cat converter and at speed and power, the exhaust gas is forced out the hole

sounds like you have a turbo with a bad bearing.
pull of the turbo and rotate it by hand to see if it is hanging up.
Most turbos start to make a different noise when they start to go.
Sometimes dirt can bypass the air filter if is not changed on a regular basis and can cause the turbo to fail or become dirty enough to cause it to spin slower, (the dirt prevents the exhaust to spin the turbo at the right speed and the air passing the fins can whistle), it will cause bearing failure after a while. Also if you have too much soot in your exhaust from too much oil, the exhaust side of the turbo can become too dirty to operate properly

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION


Maybe your car U join bearing damaged,check the bearing first.If the noise from the transmission, Change the transmission oil and filter, This is the cheapest way, sometime you can solve this kind problem, but if after you change transmission oil, still have the whistle noise, probably you have to change the transmission.

I suggest that if you can take your car to a transmission shop and let them give you a quote and also get their opion, I think it is better than I give you my opion without hear the noise.
Good luck
