    would that cause that high pitched whistle???

    I thought it was the bearings but it doesn't hum, it whistles like a tea kettle.

    Thought about the calipers????

    If it was the wipers, would that stop when I moved the steering wheel side to side (or press the brakes)?

    I will take a look at the wipers though...anything to rid myself of that noise!!!!!!!

    I have the same problem or maybe similar at 40 and up as you noted. Im suspected it was the transmission oil level not enough, so rechecked and added to ensure its on proper level when engine is warmed up or maybe CV joints? Im still figuring this out.

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.

Hey, I'm working on a 2004 Ford Freestar van with a coolant problem. There is no consistency, it happens at low and high speeds. While driving the temp gauge goes from its normal running position,...


do you have access to a good scanner (that reads engine parameters like engine temp?)-your gauge could be bad, you might have an intermittent problem with the cooling fan (connector?), your thermostat could be hanging open or closed, or you might have air in the cooling system.

My 2005 ford freestar has a high pitched "whistle"


I am having this same issue. I have changed my brakes and now I was going to change the front wheel bearing, but unsure to dump a lot of money out on an unsure fix.
Let me know if anyone has a fix?

At high speeds, I here a high pitched squeal coming from the passenger side dashboard. Its like the wind is reflrcting off something and it makes this annoying sound. Can you help me figure this out.


I'd check the passenger side mirror first, make sure it is tight to the window frame, no gaps. It causes a wind noise or whistle. It could be from the outside of the truck, try to pin point. Does noise go away with either window down? Does noise get louder turning in one direction (wheel bearing)? Does it get worse then seem better (could be tire noise)? Eliminate fan motor, and radio. Does it get worse with vehicle speed or just engine speed?

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?
