I usually hear this noise when the car is at idle and usually after driving for about 20-30 mins. I would come to a stop put the car in park and seconds later hear the loud whistling noise coming from the left front wheel. At first i thought it was that ac blower noise most people talk about but i realized how loud it was when i stepped out of the car. Heres a video clip of the sound coming from the wheel well. If theres a previous thread on this an what it might be please let me know. Thanks in advanced.

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out next time my car makes the noise.

To be honest it would probably make sense to change them anyway I guess since I've just checked the prices and they are not that expensive and are easy to fit.

Unknown Noise

Thanks guys I will be actually checking it out once the whether gets nicer out here hopefully next week... for anyone with the same problem here is a quick video on how to change the CCV valves. Very simple and about $50-$60 for the parts. I will probably also check other things such as the pulleys and belts and whatnot.. I will try to make another video soon.


Here's a link to buying those CCV parts.
