A whistling noise indicates a vacuum leak.
play in the drive train
a crack or a hole in the tank. or hose for that matter
Would this cause the car not to start If the EGR VALVE is bad
It might cause the "check engine" light to come on.
water temp sensor wire grounding out could cause this problem.
The vacuum line diagram for a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix can be found in the service manual. Vacuum is provided by the engine and leaks can cause serious performance issues.
