    whistle sound when accelerator is pressed.

    Done 1000 mile round trip this past week and sometimes noticed a whistle type sound that seemed to only sound when the accelerator is pressed. It only seemed to do it on the motorway too. Short town runs didn't have the sound. Maybe I'm going mad and need a hearing aid maybe not? any ideas?

    do you have an amplifier?
    is your exhaust blowing?

    By the sounds of it it only happens at high speed and its a whistling sound, so I'd be thinking its something exterior catching the wind.

    I accidentally left my radio ariel up after washing the other day and heard similar sounds to what your describing, a swift nudge back into place and all was good LOL

    check the gasket between the cat and the manifold - very common

    Its probably your drivers side wing mirror. Theres a small hole underneath that makes the whistle, Bit of blue take usually sorts it. Try that.

    If it was the exhaust, surely you would hear it during 'short town runs' as well. You'd be reaching the same amount of revs through the gears and it makes no difference to the exhaust if you're traveling faster.
