Angry car is making a noise! UGH!!!

Ok, I think I started a post here a while back but let me refresh your memories....

the is like a whining noise, it isn't really squeeky, just like a high pitched whining noise.... you can hear it very loud inside the car and outside as well.... well i figured out that the noise comes out of the exhaust tips.... ????????????????????

ok.... it only does it when i turn the car on.... it stops when i rev up but when the RPMs go back down the noise comes on.... the noise continues until i get up to about 40-45.....it won't do it the rest of that driving trip until i turn the car on again.....

what could be the problem????

Mabye there is a small hole in a pipe causing the air to leak and a high pitched noise is created (like a whistle). Check for any holes and leaks.

Exhaust leaks usually sound like "pffft" I suppose. At higher rpms they go away because the exhaust is being pushed hard enough not to escape.

so the noise is comming from the right rear area of the car? is there any way u can get a sound clip of it? first thing that came to my mind was the fuel pump. does it make the noise all the time? and when did it start? could be an exhaust leak, check and make sure the exhaust isnt hitting anything cause if it is and hitting other metal it could create the right frequency to make it sound like a loud humming. check where the large collector pipe is and goes over the rear end.

LOL just take it to a mechanic. Trying to diagnose what's wrong without seeing it in person is next to impossible on the internet. Its like the blind leading the blind.
