There's this strange whistling sound comming from my engine that I've yet to figure out. When the car is sitting idle, everything sounds normal. Then when I tap the gas, and the rpms pass just above 700, there's this small whistle sound that comes for a split second then dissappears. If I lightly keep the gas pedal at around 700rpms I could make a constant whistle sound. It sounds like as if someone is whistling.
I was thinking maybe its a loose vacuum hose connection on the intake manifold thats causing air to come in and make the sound, but I haven't had the chance to go and look.
I hope its not the tensioner, I thought a rattling sound is the tensioner.
I checked yesterday, and I couldn't find anything loose, I didnt even hear the whistling sound when I was under the hood, strange. Oh well, I'm sure its nothing big, its prolly the intake making wierd sounds.
I have a even weirder situation. I am noticing the same engine whistle but only when I play my MP3 player (hooked up thru a FM Modulator to the factory radio). I am noticing this after I got a Clifford alarm installed in my car. I have a feeling they may have loosened a vaccuum hose like someone suggested. Hope that's it!
Drive it like you stole it!

Silver, sounds like you have a ground loop in your wiring. Probably alternator whine being picked up somewhere. If this is just after an alarm install, I'd take it back and have them put an isolator in the alarm ground.
