I was driving the car today and I started hearing a weird whistling sound coming from the engine bay. i turned off the radio to listen and whenever i put any kind of load on the engine (even barely touching the gas) and im in 3rd, 4th, or 5th at about 2000rpms it starts to whistle and it gets higher pitched with the engine. its not the turbo.
could it possibly have something to do with the clutch/flywheel? i was goin about 40mph in neutral and blipped the throttle to shift to 4th without using the clutch and as i was slightly pushing it into 4th the whistle was there and it got lower pitched with the engine speed slowing down and then it went it gear like normal. then putting load on the engine caused the sound again.
also, when in neutral with the foot off of the clutch the clutch/flywheel has been makin a lot of noise lately. more than before. it used to a little bit.. then after it was broken in it only made a little noise when the a/c was on. now its considerably louder..
