Whistling when speeding up

Post by Canamsparky » Thu Jun 20, 2019 5:55 pm

Hey all, new guy here and I have searched the topics. I recently purchased an 03 base model, when I am taking off from a light I am hearing a whistle from the engine. Have any other members had this happen? And if so how did it get resolved? Thanks all for you help.

welcome to genvibe

I searched for whistle and whistling here, turned up a few threads. Most seem to attribute it to a vacuum leak, either a vacuum hose, the throttle body, or the intake gasket. The throttle body one seemed to be for an 09 after a recall (not applicable to your 03) fixed by a new throttle body gasket, the others didn't seem to have a close out from the person with the problem reporting how they fixed it, if they ever did.
