In trying to figure out why my car won't fire, I was under the hood when I noticed a pretty bad whinning noise. I tracked the sound to what appears to be a silver box with round section, that appears to be connected to the larger circular device just before the intake plenum. I'm guessing the larger device is the throttle body.

The smaller silver box (which appears to have a motor or servo in it), is the source of the sound. The sound itself resembles a small electric motor that is stuck.

I've been swimming thrrough the archives for a couple of days now and have learned lots of good new stuff, but damn if I can't get this car running without the Dealer. I'll be getting the Peake tool soon if I can't find the problem on my own.

Any help would be appreciated.
