What causes a whistle/gurgle sound in the engine area that started at the same time my fuel pressure has become inconsistent, mostly in 2nd and 3rd gear? 1999 Honda accord, manual.

Asked by Apr 29, 2014 at 09:58 AM about the 1999 Honda Civic Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I started hearing a slight "whistle" sound in the engine area and just a day or 2 after,
noticed that the gas does not flow consistently when I drive, usually low revs, in 2nd and
3rd gear.  The sound is almost like a muffler issue just beginning, but it's closer to the
engine area, and my muffler was replaces 1 year ago.  Car chugs a bit in low revs due to
fuel not flowing consistently.

Might be an exhaust or vacuum leak. Check your hoses and exhaust connections/gaskets for leaks
