Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I have a 06 Freestar that makes a whistling noise. Very annoying and random. I can't associate it with anything. Sometimes it doesn't do it at all but mostly it does. Never when stopped or going below 30mph. No one seems to be able to fix it.

Hi, I had this "whistling/whining" noise coming from my front right tire area. It didn't make the noise at 50km/hr or slower... and on "colder" days... it would take a little longer before starting up.

The solution (after reading a FixYa) was to replace the whole Right Front Hub Assembly. I bought this for $280 incl. tax (it was on sale). And I did the work myself. I had already replaced both the front Rotors and Brake Pads, so I knew those were okay (and didn't fix the whine)... so now I just went to town on the Hub assembly. It comes apart pretty "easy" (I'm not a mechanic and don't have too many tools... but I bought what I needed) and the new Hub Assembly slides on. It's been about 2 weeks now with a road trip included and the noise is gone.

LOL , We had this issue arise before and it turned out to be that when the audio guys at American TV installed the car stereo speakers in our door , they tore the plastic sealing membrane on the inside of the door under the door panel.
To locate the leak you will need a passenger with good hearing .
drive into the wind until the noise starts and have the passenger guess which door the whistling is coming from... remove the door trim panel and be sure the membrane is intact and sealed... pay close attention to the mirror area... as they are prone to leak and cause a whistle...

Hope this helped!

Making whistle noise on off on run and stopping.


There are basically two types of whistle noises.

* Whistle when you get more gas (increase RPM, put gas pedal, sometimes just idling but louder when you put more gas)
This usually intake-side leak.
Intake manifold itself, intake manifold gasket (most likely), even airfilter housing, Airflow meter housing (connector), anything where air goes to engine.
usually engine get rough or unstable idle when intake leak occur.
Engine knocking or pinging may feel.

* Whistle when you decrease RPM (engine brake, reduce speed, sometimes just idling but louder when it dropping RPM)
This usually Vacuum-side leak.
There are many vacuum hoses in engine room. even inside of cabin (heater control, etc)
Try to spot where it coming from.
Vacuum also connected to Brake servo, heater control and spark timing.

Put metal or plastic pipe (small PVC pipe will work fine) to one of your ear then isolate source of noise and find where it come from.

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

I have a 2005 Freestar limited. when traveling over 100 km or if there is a strong wind there is a howl in the front right side of the windshield, or door jam or somewhere... I can't pinpoint exactly. This...


Check weatherstripping around windows and doors. Sometimes it's crushed slightly and air is getting through. Easy way to find it, take your rig to a self serve car wash & spray high pressure water in areas you suspect. If air gets in, so will water.

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.

Whistling noise while driving


If it is whistling while you rev your engine (while parked), then most likely there is a leak or hole in your air intake or vacuum hoses.

Facts:
1. Your car creates a vacuum to constantly receive air from the outside.

2. A whistling noise is created when air travels through a hole.

Check all air pressurized ducts for holes or leaks.
Check air intake system for holes or leaks.

2003 Mercury Grand marquis utlimate edition Whistling noise coming from the rear and eerie annoying.


What speed?
In the trunk area?
Around the rear doors?
Only in crosswinds? Sometimes the antenna makes a whistle noise in cross winds at 50 plus mph.

Get a roll f 2 inch masking tape, and tape off areas one at a time and test drive.

Wind whistle noise


To determine what's making the whistle, try putting some tape over anything that might be causing it. I'd tape over any trim or moldings to try and find out where its coming from. You might try a wide roll of tape over the window edges, and trim points, if the whistle stops, take off a section at a time and recheck until it appears again, and you know what's causing it. Try to keep the tape flat, or you might create some new whistles! Let me know how you do. countrycurt0
