Question about 2000 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

My 98 Villager makes a high pitch sqealing noise

From the driver side of the engine. Higher the revs the more higher pitch to the squeal. Sounds almost metallic.

    HI, yes it does. While driving it is constant, in park you must rev it up fairly high for the noise to start. I thought it may be a pulley but the noise is obviously coming from the opposite end.

    A/C works like a champ. Also when in park and rev the engine and get the noise, when let off the accelerator the engine shutters.

    Does it do this both while the car is driving and if you have it in park and rev the engine?

Engine Squeal, unsure where from, not belt, Sounds like vacuum leak, but can not find the source.

Squeal is always from the serpentine belt. Buy a can of Belt Conditioner, and spray it on the belt with the engine running. Sometimes you have to spray two days apart.

You can make a stethoscope by using a length of plastic tube and putting one end to your ear and the other end in the direction of the noise.

2004 honda odyssey making whistle noise

I know this original question was written quite a few months back but I was wondering if you ever found out what the high pitch sound was. I just purchased a used 2005 Honda Odyssey and it is doing the exact same thing. Any advice?

2004 ford freestar 4.2L engine...high pitched

this sounds odd but mine did this when i replaced the wipers. it seems the design of the wiper frame was making a whistle at higher speeds. the freestar wipers are exposed on the window cowl and not hidden so they endure the winds at high speed. it is worth a shot.

If you think it's the timing belt, get it replaced or inspected.

Even though there are other things that might make a noise, the damage you might do by having the timing belt fail while the engine is running are not worth the risk.
