Unkown noise

Hello, so recently i was off roading and went through some water while off roading and after i was done it sound and drove fine. but as i was driving it today i notice a whistling sound when in gear and accelerating. i dont have to be moving either i can have clutch in and just press gas peddal alittle bit and i can hear it. it sounds like air is being sucked in or something alont those lines of whistling. not sure what it might be any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Tyler ( 1998 jeep wrangler tj 4cycle 5 spd)

I had a noise like that but it happened all the time. It was my alternator.

I had a "whistle" noise, I replaced the intake/exhaust gasket. You can spray carb cleaner around all the vacuum lines and the gaskets. Soon as you hit the leak you will know where the problem is.
