Whistling sound from engine after changing front battery

The whistling is possibly the alternator belt loading to charge the battery, listen to the noise and turn on the rear heated screen and headlight, if the pitch of the whistle changes then it's the alternator belt. Hope that helps.

Jetta compressor makes a noise as if the fan belt is finished but when I lubricate it it goes silent then later makes that whistling sound. What could be the problem? and It's a year now.

If you are talking about the fan it's self it could be one of three things.
Fan belt may be worn and needs replacing or if its new the belt may need to be tensioned again as new belts do stretch a bit. But while you are there check the rubber of the belt for cracking or perished area
Could be a noisy bearing that needs cleaning or replacing which will make a whistle type sound.
Last is that the actual fan may be out of shape or the fan housing which could have a build up of dirt dust that could give off a odd sound.
Hope this is of some help

My 2007 Land Rover Freelander makes a whistling sound when vehicle is idling. Sound goes away when accelerating or applying petrol?

it may be a turbocharger if so equipted, lots of turbocharged cars whistle as the unit gets older..only other thing I can think of is something with the exhaust system.. get it looked at by putting the car up on a lift and inspecting some cars also whistle thru the radio ..this is called alternator whine and is usually correected by a filter in the power line of the radio...good luck

There is a whistling ticking noise coming from my engine while running. What are some things that could possibly cause this.

Whistling can be caused by vacuum leaks. look for hoses and tubes to be cracked or broken. The tick may be the sound of the injectors working or valve noise. more info needed.

High pitched whistling on startup - madza121

The symptoms sound like a loose fan belt to me. That is normally described as a screech instead of a whistle but everything else matches.

This should not be hard to fix your self. Also a mechanic should be able to do it in 10 minutes including chatting to you.

If it is a fan belt your mechanic will know the sound 4 streets away too :)

For a short term fix and to prove if this really is the problem you can get your self something called "Belt Grip" It is in a spray on can. Follow the instructions on the can and if it fixed the problem you have the cause. Either get someone else to tighten your belt up or figure out how it's done. Basicaly you just loosen an adjusting bolt normally on the alternator and slide it out a little bit on it's track then tighten it up again.

Hope this helps

Whistleing sound, when accelerated,while cold

yea sounds like it needs a new belt. if the belt isnt tight enough it will make all sorts of weird squeaks at all different times. tell her to replace the belt if she worries about it otherwise let it go.
