voluntary, you cause your lips to form the shape to whistle, and cause the air to be pushed out. if whistling were involuntary, you would do it without making an effort (like your heart pumping, digesting things, etc)

A defective vacuum line can cause a whistling sound when the vehicle is accelerating. A loose belt can also create a high pitched whistle sound.

When a toilet inlet washer gets a slight hole in it, it can whistle. As the water rushes against it or through it its the same as you whistling with your mouth.

Have you had any belts changed recently? That could be the cause. Turbo wear can cause a whistle as can a leak on the inlet manifold, though a manifold leak usually affects the performance also.

A whistling noise indicates a vacuum leak.

You can't. But a way round the problem might be revealed in a children's song of the 1950s, "Willie, the whistling giraffe". Search for it in Youtube.com. Willie, the baby giraffe, felt sad 'cause he just couldn't laugh, When he wanted to sing, not a note could he bring... But he swallowed a whistle one day, which soon made him happy and gay. He'd hide in the thistle, and whistle and whistle, the animals all would obey...

The most likely cause of the whistling noise is loose or worn weather stripping around the door. If this is the case, the sound heard is the wind.

A bad compressor belt can cause a whistling noise while running the air conditioner. A bad engine can also cause this noise.

A vacuum leak usually from the intake manifold gasket or brake booster hose/connection will cause a whistle upon partial acceleration. It will usually go away when your foot is off the gas or when more throttle is applied.

In Vermont it is illegal to make noises, including whistling, underwater that can disorient or hurt marine life. If whistling noises are played around some marine mammals, including whales or dolphins, it can disorient them and may cause them to become stranded.

"Whistling" sounds are generally vacuum leaks. Start around the EGR valve and/or air intake de-icing assembly.

Many time the high pitched whistle will be cause by a loose or unattached vaccuum line on the engine.
