Q: Will a tear in the air filter make a humming/fluttering sound?

Hi there, thanks for writing in.

A tear in the air filter can make a fluttering noise. Another possible source of the noise is the DISA valve at the top of the intake manifold. The DISA valve is what controls the variable length intake manifold. If this noise still exists after replacing the air filter, you can contact a professional technician, such as the ones available through YourMechanic, to diagnose the noise.
