2005 Avalanche whistling sound when the engine is cold
I get a whistling sound ,when the truck is first started in cool temperatures. Give it a shot of gas and the sound gets louder. goes away once the engine is warmed up.

Hmmm, just thinking of all of the times I've had that problem,
- could be an exhaust leak (I had a crack in an exhaust manifold that stopped leaking when the manifold expanded),
- could be a belt (an old belt, maybe 75 to 80 k miles, would squeal when cold),
- the radiator fans have clutches that let the fan turn only when the engine is hot (I've had fans with poor clutches that would be noisy when cold).Ray

I am thinking a squealing pulley.
I have the same issue right now with mine.
Only squeals when cold and first started, but goes away after warm up.
I haven't investigated it thoroughly yet, but if you find the issue yourself, please post it on here and let us know!2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Z66 WBH, AVS smoked rain guards, AVS smoked bug shield, Bose 6-disk CD changer, Bully Fire Strip w/ Sequential turn, 6 on-high, amber DRLs, tinted euro tails, Pace Setter Performance Dual Exhaust, K&N CAI, GlowShift gauges in dual pillar pod.
