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?

    The problem you have is a bad seal. If you just had the bearings ($70-100) replaced and not the whole bearing hub assembly ($220), you may still have this whistling problem. Unfortunately, the best way to fix the problem is having the hub assembly installed (TIMKEN bearings) to ensure bearings are sealed properly.

    The problem you have is a bad bearing seal. If you only had the bearings replaced and not the whole bearing hub assembly ($220), you may still hear this "whistling" high pitch noise. The annoying sound seems to occur on a warm dry day with temps 65+. The sound usually starts after driving the van 15mins at speeds exceeding 30-40mph. Once the van exceeds speeds of 60mph, the sound can become loud and irritating! Slightly steering either left or right causes the noise to stop. If the weather is rainy or cold, you will probably not hear the noise and think that the problem has fixed itself. But just wait until the day warms up to 80+ degrees. Each time you pass a car, drive under a bridge or through a tunnel, the noise will drive you crazy enough to break your piggy bank and run to your mechanic to have it taken care of! Order a bearing hub assembly with TIMKEN brand bearings! Don't settle for less! This is a guaranteed FixYa!

    Did that fix the problem? I am having the same issue and I do not want to put anymore money into it because it seems like the mechanics are playing a guessing game. Let me know. Thanks!

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.

My 2003 Ford Explorer has a high pitched whistle around 2000 RMPs. If I accelerate or decelerate the whistle stops. I've replaced the idle aircontrol valve, as I read this could be a possible solution to...


you may have a tensioner or idler pulley starting to go bad. They make a high pitched whistle when the bearings are on thier way.

Simply have someone slowly bring it up to 2000 rpm and listen with the end of a wooden broom handle touching the center bolt on each. Be careful not to get caught.

If you're not used to this you may be able to hear it whithout use of the "hearing aid"

Your drive belt may simply need dressing. You can buy this at almost any auto parts store for about 4 bucks. (dont use anthing else as you will cause the belt to stretch creating more issues)

High pitch whistling noise in engine compartment of 2005 envoy


There may be a small hole or cut in a vacum line or possibly just loose. Also make sure the air filter box and the big hose to it are secure and clamps etc are tight. Pulleys and belts can make a high pitch sound also.

High Pitch whine during acceleration


Hi Pullerwife,

I have a few suggestions for you,

First of all, check your air filter, make sure its clean, not clogged, and doesn't need to be changed.

I don't know how handy you are, but if you are fairly handy, check the idler pulley bearings, if your not, have a shop check it out, as a last resort.

Power steering pump/fluid being low is also a possibility, but thats usually more of a lower pitched whine then what you describe.

You say once the vehicle is warmed up, the whining stops. Does Weather seem to be a factor as well?

Hope I've helped, and don't forget to rate.
