2007 pontiac whistling coming from engine. Sign In

Year: 2007
Make: Pontiac
Model: G5
Engine size: 2.2
Mileage: 108,888 miles

Hello folks, im having a problem. Recently just got a oil change and a day later it started making a whistling /deflating noise. Its dominant when idle but it is kind of hard to hear driving. I haven't noticed a performance loss but im a rookie driver so I could be experiencing loss but just don't notice. I took it back up to where car oil was changed and they said it had nothing to do with oil change and at the end of it all couldn't really help me. So I need help people. Dont wanna do any costly damage while car is running like this. I've provided a link to a video that I uploaded. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for the help.

I'll bet it DID have something to do with them. If I were to take a wild guess I would say they removed the air filter to look at it and left a breather or vacuum hose off when they put it back together.

Yeah I assumed as much but i'm a humble person and didnt wanna get into a measuring match with the mechanic. So just check the filter for missing O-ring or vacuum hoses? Thanks for the help.

You could have a different mechanic look at it and if they find anything related to the oil change, bring their bill back to the first mechanic with some photos.
