Having problems with your Mazda 323 ?
Whistling on startup - Madza 121
\015 I have an old Mazda 121 bubble car and for a while now its been making ahigh pitched whistling noise on startup. During winter however itsgotten much worse, to the point where my parents can still hear me 4streets away as it gets louder and louder until it's earsplitting andjust stops (this is aout 20-30 seconds later when I get the car movinga lot faster). I also find when I start it up after it's been driven,it's not nearly as bad (goes for 5 seconds, very quiet) I got a newtiming belt fitting in January, and when I turn the aircon on thewhistling starts again and wont stop at all.I am going to take it to amechanic, but I'd rather have a good idea of whats wrong so I don't getfed any bull. Thanks! \015
Sounds like a fan belt problem if its burning that bad for that long it's likely to need to be replaced by now. Tightened the same day it started may have saved the belt
