A whistle -- open the hood;WATCH OUT FOR MOVING PARTS; listen. Try to pin down what thingy is whistling and get back.

Probably a bad vacuume line from the sound of it, but is it a whistle or light squeal?

It's definitely a whistle. I just swapped engines and the mechanic thinks the water pump gasket it dry from sitting for so long.
