1999 SL2
Default Odd rpm related whistle noise

Just started getting this on my 1999 SL2 149K miles auto.

The noise has a resonance (maximum loudness) at 2200 rpms, and another just above 3K rpms.

Wondering if anyone else has had this before I get time on the weekend to look deeper into it.

Car is running great, no codes. Getting less than 30mpg now that winter is here.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Sounds like you're describing a vacuum leak. Have you checked the various vacuum/ventilation hoses? Throttle body/EGR Gaskets?

Quick update. The noise comes and goes (odd). Currently it is not there.

No check engine lights, no performance issues.

I was thinking vacuum leak too, maybe around the PCV.

Check the area around the EGR, as well, as you may need a gasket and the valve is functionally fine.
