Default squeaky bird chirp sound

I have a squeaky bird chirp sound coming from the right side of the engine. It normally makes this sound when I'm cruising at 2200- 2700 rpm. I can make the sound fluctuate with the throttle. It also makes the sound when I let off the throttle and its fully closed. My boost also doesn't seem there or if it is, its not great. Is this the normal sound of a bad DV . Ive been searching for an hour and only see a fluttering sound it makes of a bad DV. ASAP I will install a boost Gage to help myself out. But I really wanted to know if a bad DV makes this sound. I cannot replicate the sound in park reving the engine from the throttle while I'm listening close in that area. Thanks.

Is it your engine or your wheel? Could it be the wheel bearing going out since it can only be heard when moving???

definitely not wheel bearing noise, I can make the sound fluctuate with just a little throttle, going the same speed. Ireplaced wheel bearings. Its a different sound. If I floor it there is no sound.

Try spraying silicone lubricant on the drive belts and test drive it. Belts often times sound like birds. If you turn on your AC will it change?

I get a squeaky bird chirp sound only at idle. The fequencydoes not change but the rate/speedincreases to the point that it is almost a solid squeek then it will stop. It starts slow and increases over about a one minute duration then it stops. It sounds like it could be coming from the driver side rear. I just ignore it, it does not seem to be a big "red flag"...I just can't explain it when someone else asks what it is. I just say the hamster wheel neede grease.

If anyone has a fix or an idea I'll look into it.

I'll see what my mechanic friend says about it when he replaces my tie-rods.

I just replaced tie rod ends this past weekend. They never squeaked, just knocked while going over bumps and made the steering sloppy. It was a quick easy DIY job. No allignment needed after.

I know the tie rods arnt squeaking but I will have him check the bird calls out. For $25 install its worth not getting my hands dirty plus he is doing the alignment because he recently installed my shocks and springs
