2008 Nissan Altima Q&A

2008 Nissan Altima Question: When I brake I get a whistling sound, what could it be?

Whenever I brake, no matter the speed I get a loud whistling sound.. What could the cause of this be? -
Answer 1
This is probably from the brake booster. It is located in the engine compartment, but the noise will be heard near the brake pedal. -

Ok.. I could be confusing whistling with screeching... would that be the same thing? -
Comment 2
Screeching is different. This could mean the brake pads are in need of replacement, if it is more of a grinding noise, then you may need brake pads and rotors. I would get the brakes inspected to know for sure! Good Luck! -
