    HELP wierd noise coming from engine

    somewhere in front of the driver in the engine i am hearing a strange noise. it only happens while accelerating really. Kinda sounds like a wierd whistling. Not like the exhaust but like somethings not right and kind of bothering me. It kinda sounds like the wind in a wierd way, if anyone else ever had this please let me know or what you might think it is. I cant really describe it too well though. -thanks

    not cool at all.

    Did you change your winter air out for summer air in your tires? I've heard of that causing issues like this.

    try adding some suggar to your gass tank, that sound is very common in F4 engines with low glucose.

    guys, you are totally misleading his guy, rude answer or not i think its pretty obvious that his clock spring has given out on him.
    If you ever go back in time, dont touch anything.

    i suggest checking your halogen fluid to make sure its at proper levels, and your muffler bearings also since those make a " wind" noise when they go out

    Take an exhaust sample and send it to Motec Systems, you may have blown the welds on the intake causing the whistle.
