That year it seems the boys at Chrysler weren't concerned too much with cabin noise. Though one thing might be the fact that the molding around the windows cracks and breaks off prematurely, I think it's most likely the following. It sounds like the drive belt is loose and slipping. There should be an automatic tensioner under the hood that keeps the belt taught. But it sometimes will need adjusting (or a good whack). That sound does get louder as you accelerate or give it gas (the faster the motor turns, the faster the belt spins).Have that checked first. Always begin with the cheapest thing. Good luck.

I really need the year but here is what might be the cause, the engine cooling fan clutch may be defective, if it locks up you will hear a roaring noise that gets louder as the engine speed increases. Open The hood and rev up the engine does the fan make allot of noise, like an airplane propeller?

I have a 2005 Mercury Montego. It is making a high pitch whining sound when the engine revs. It is louder when going up hills or when the engine is reving harder.

first thing to check is proper tension on all the belts, if they seem good and not worn,, check for vacuum leaks , a bad hose, or one that has come disconnected will cause this too

HIgh pitched sound when accelerating w/ My 2007 Hyundai santa fe

This may sound strange but have someone check out your radio system. Sometimes an antenna wire or wires, when jared loose will make that ear piercing noise. It may not be the problem but it's worth looking into.

Electric nois form the engin low rpms in park

It's quite simple, really. You have an electronic bird living under the hood. Electronic birds are very rare in the United States, so it is not surprising that the dealer is not familiar with this problem. The best solution is to let an electronic cat loose under the hood of your car and let it kill the electronic bird. Don't worry about noises from the electronic cat - they are a lot quiter than electronic birds and usually make only a dull electronic purring sound. You can purchase an electronic cat at your local electronic exotic pet store and it shouldn't cost you more than $100.00 (give or take $1,000.00). Best of luck, my friend.

Loud engine whine (like a jet noise) from 2002 subaru forester

Have you crawled under the vehicle and personally inspected your exhaust line from manifold to tail pipe? The roaring sound usually occur when there is a hole in the exhaust line. I had it happen to my forester before. A hole half the size of a dime made my subaru sound like my old 74 chevy pickup.

High pitched car sounds

does the noise and light occour at the same time ? another cause of a high pitched noise can be slipping drive belts, alternator,powersteering etc so check them for tightness, condition etc, does the noise happen when car staionary and just rev the engine ? if so i would say it is the drive belt/s, go back to the VW dealer re the ABS light and get them to check the OBD as should be done as part of the service , hope this helps
