whistling chirping sound
Hey guys I'm sort of a noob when it comes to jeeps and knowing alot about them. With that being said i've only owned my TJ for about year and am experiencing my first problem or bazaar noise. There is a high pitched chirping or whistling sound coming from i believe somewhere near my tires. I've tried putting it in neutral and reving the engine and there is no sound. It seems to only occur when the wheels are moving. It happens mainly when slowing down or coasting in neutral to a stop. brakes applied or not the sound is there. Same sound occurs even if in gear. It starts when picking up and seems to go away once in 4th gear or is not as noticeable at higher speeds. The whistle is loudest between 0 and 30mph, and doesn't seem to get louder or softer by turning left or right. Also the whistle continues all the way until i come to a complete stop where it then stops. Is somethin catching wind or rubbing possibly? I have heard air intakes may whistle and i do have a k&N intake but it is definately not coming from under my hood. Any ideas on what this could be. Its very annoying!
