My kia does that when I am on the highway. It is just wind coming in. I switich the air coming in the car to be open instead of shut and it stops. Or you can crack a window and it will quiet. It is sometimes louder than the radio. Started after I had the car about 1 year.

If the idel is rought or higher than normal you might want to chk. for a broken vacume line or maybe one has come off. It also could be comming from the power steering pump, may want to chk. the fluid in it too.

I own a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. At highway speeds I hear a loud winding noise coming from what sounds like the right front of the car. And also a whistling noise on deceleration.


sounds like you have an hole where air is blowing past. check for any missing screws or holes. if a mounting brace for any hoses or pipes that run under the vehicle have come loose they could whistle as well. if the noise during deceleration only happens when you brake then it's time for new brake pads.
hope this helps

Loud whistling noise when 65 to 70 miles an hour


This is sometimes caused by moulding lifting around the windshield and on the panel housing the wiper arms. Sometimes the moulding is affected by temperature. The best thing to do is trial and error taping of a small section of the moulding or the panel covering the wiper arms. What is happening is an edge is poking up and catching the wind. By taping a small section, you are smoothing out the edge that is making noise. Once found, just try removing the tape and then use a clear silicon to fill in the edge gap.
You would be getting water in the vehicle if the wind was coming through the front bottom gasket of the windshield

Vw sharan loud whistling from front of car


Theres many holes on the fire wall for the wires to come through from the engine to behind the dashboard, one could be missing the rubber around it or one could be missing, also you may likely have a leak on your windshield, you can get some black silicone and patch it with it, same for the dashboard.

Whistling from engine


This is a symptom of the inlet manifold gasket having a leak.The whistling is air going in through the small leak/hole in the gasket.With the throttle butterfly shut,air is getting sucked in the only way it can.Try tightening the inlet manifold bolts 1st.But more than likely the gasket needs replacing.Hope this helps

High pitch tone from my 2001 chevrolet S-10 pickup


You didnt indicate whether you ran the engine with the belt removed while replacing the alternator,if not do so and verify noise. Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak, best way to diagnose would be with a smoke machine if not available with the engine cold try spraying carb cleaner around the intake & any suspect vacuum hoses with engine idling look for a change in idle speed or elimination of noise. Hope this helps you out

I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT. About 2 months after purchase, I noticed a whistling sound emanating from the right corner of the dash/windshield when driving 60 mph. The whistle was steadiest...


Hi, 2possible suggestions that will help you, when dealing with a wind noise it is almost always visible in the affected area by seeing a redich resedue caused by entering dust particles,

you could also use''masking'' duckt tape to seal off all your suspect areas(starting with the r/h section of the windshield) then by trail and error systematically remove piece by piece of this tape untill your noise is located, then you can decide on what to do with the ''leak''
