HELP!!! Whistling sound coming from the front/ engine making a clicking sound.

My 07 v6 auto is making this whistling sound from the front if the car when driving. It only happens when going from 1st gear to second. I'm assuming it has something to do with the transmission, could it mean my transmissions is about to go out? Also when it's parked and the engine on I popped the hood and the engine is making like a clicking sound. Idk what's going on it drives good it has 112k miles on it

Clicking could just be a lifter..when was your last oil change? Do you use any oil stabilizers? As for the whistle do you have a cai? Sounds like that or a leak somewhere..like the tb mounting gasket.

What's a lifter and how could I get it fixed? Last oil change was yesterday and no I don't use oil stabilizers should I? There is no CAI installed so it must be the tb leak?

Doesnt need to be an aftermarket CAI, could just be the rubber hose from the TB to air filter box, check for holes or cracks (common problem), if there is a crack or hole its sucking alot of air into a small hole which causes the whistle

Thanx man it was the TB to air filter hose got it replaced so that fixes the whistling sound but what about the clicking the engine makes. I don't hear it with the hood is closed but when it's open the sound is clear

Could be a lifter which is part of the valve train assembly. The lash, or play, in the lifter may need to be addressed to correct excess play. The valve covers are removed and each lifter adjusted accordingly.
