Picked up the car after having the PCV valve and fuel pressure sensor replace (both recall) and drove it 10 or so miles back to work. No kettle whistle. :thumbup:
Thanks. *fingers crossed*
Got it to the dealer. The noise was not as pronounced as this morning and was intermittent. I did notice I now have a little back-fire burble noise coming from the exhaust and acceleration seems...
Spark plugs were no trouble. I'm just gonna take it in and leave it. I'll have to borrow pop's old pick-up.
Oh those "wonderful" folks at SUN Motors won't be able to give me a loaner until sometime in July.:rolleyes:
Earliest they can get me in is Tuesday morning. Really sorta stuck at the moment.

This could be completely crazy, but I did park under a tree yesterday which dropped a ton of leaves/junk on top of my car (especially on the hood/windshield). I'm wondering if some seeds/leaves or...
Belt tensioner is vibrating. Though I'm not sure it's vibrating any differently than it's always vibrated. This noise is happening before the two fans on the radiator are even engaging. Using the A/C...
I'll try the A/C and oil cap. I do notice that if I blip the throttle (while car is parked/in neutral) it screams a bit. And as soon as I turn the car off/remove key a faint, little scream happens...
Failed water pump?
This randomly began on my way to work. It's extremely loud. Any idea what this may be? I took a short video of the sound. Thanks in advance.
