1) When i start up in these cold mornings I hear a random squeek squeek from the engine (m20). But it goes away after about 3 minutes of running in idle. Could it be alt bearing, water pump going, or just a loose fan belt? (which i tightened about 3 weeks ago)

2) When driving theres a loud howl from about 20mph and it gets higher in pitch but quieter as i accelerate. It sounds very much like wind noise. Its definately not the heater fan, and i dont have a roof rack. Could it be air passing through a seam in the metal somewhere in the engine compartment even at those low speeds? (I did cut out the rad support for the m20) Its bloody annoying but i cant think of what it could be coming from.

3) A ticking noise comes from the trunk but im pretty sure its the wires tapping against the fuel tank.

4) The car also creaks alot when decelerating and a little while acceling. Would new rubber solve that or what?

My friend suggested that there might be a coyote and a chicken in my engine compartment (the chicken shuts up because the coyote ate it). And a time bomb in my trunk. hmmm

The houling could be wind. if any of the door seals are old, they would make that noise. Also due to the car having airdynamic qualities of a brick, at higher spped it will generate wind noise in a lot of places.

Squeeks and creeks are hard to find, but possible. Just takes patience.
