Q: A.I.R. pump whistling

asked by on

Te A.I.R. pump on my car is whistling.

The air injection pump is the most common failure of the air injection system on this vehicle. The system would need to be checked to make sure the pump is the cause of the noise. I recommend you have a qualified mechanic, like ones from YourMechanic, to inspect and replace the air pump, if needed.
