    Hello!!

    There have been a few posts in the past, but I cannot find a definitive answer on this problem. Can anyone please clarify?

    My 2013 Explore makes a whistling sound as the speed reaches about 30-40 mph. There have been posts in the past that describe the sound exactly. Here's one:

    Does anyone know what I need to do to stop this (other than play the radio louder)?

    Many thanks and HAPPY 4th. Be safe!

    Semi common issue, use the search function up top right for "cowl whistle."

    Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
    Can't say I actually heard the whistle. If it appears to be on the outside it could be the cowl as mentioned above. It could also be the outside mirror or 'A' pillar which also have threads on them.
