The POST (power on self-test) routine checks the video card, RAM, keyboard, etc. and makes a series of beeps which if there are alot of beeps may sound like one long screechy sound. Reseat the video card if you are using an AGP card, the RAM, check the CPU release lever on the side of the socket as well as the heat sink/fan, the drive connectors and the keyboard. If it still screeches then remove all but one RAM stick, the drives except for one drive, if you have an onboard video connector use that and remove all other PCI cards and the AGP card. If no onboard video then leave the video card in ensuring that it is lined up and seated properly and connect the keyboard. Doing those steps should fix the problem or isolate the problem to the faulty component.

My 93 jeep grand cherokee laredo 5.2 has a loud whistling when accelerating. It has killed my fuel economy and i have no power when down shifting. I have already checked all fluids

Possibly the catalytic converter is plugged/broken up. I have seen this several times. It will idle fine, then when accelerating, it will whistle loudly and will not accelerate very well. Exhaust is your problem.

2002 merc cougar 2.5 liter has loud whistling

Sounds like a vacuume leak, use some carb cleaner in a spray can and gently spray the engine. When you find the leak the engine will stumble, check in that area for the leak.

Whistling from engine

This is a symptom of the inlet manifold gasket having a leak.The whistling is air going in through the small leak/hole in the gasket.With the throttle butterfly shut,air is getting sucked in the only way it can.Try tightening the inlet manifold bolts 1st.But more than likely the gasket needs replacing.Hope this helps

Loud whistling noise from back of vacuum

On the back side of most kenmore vacuums, there is an air relief diaphragm that, when the motor is sucking but there is no air flow, will pop, causing the sound you heard. check your hose for blockage, check your bag and or filter for blockage,even your attachments/wands can become lodged with debris. Often, after a few, the motor will get hot and the machine will shut down. This is a thermostat on the motor that protects it from overheating. I am quite sure that this will solve your kenmore woes, fine choice in vacuum, kenmore, tried and true. hope to have helped! Have a super, and hopefully sucking(ha ha) Sunday
