I have had this sound for a while and it is very noticeable while driving. Does anybody know what this could be? Where I focused the camera is where i think it is coming from

I don't hear anything terrible. U mean that high pitched whining noise? This is with the key in what position? Does it change when you run the engine? Does it continue after shutting the car off and key out?

sounds like fuel pump wine or a high voltage coil. But fuel pump is in the tank.... got me. Is there an electric smog pump on these cars?

Yeah it's the whine, it is on in all positions, it gets louder when I am pressing the gas pedal. After I turn the car off it stops. I am hoping its not the fuel pump, that sounds like a very expensive fix. The car does not need to be running to hear the sound.

Right, in-tank fuel pump means that's not the cause of this particular sound.

Two things come to mind here, ETM and purge control valve. You have the camera focused on both of these, I'd unplug the purge control valve and see if the noise goes away. Go from there.

ETMs don't make noise
If a fuel pump makes any noise, the pitch NEVER changes
I couldn't hear a thing but you may have a clogged breather system

It's a very high pitched whine, sounds electronic to me for sure. Some modules and such do make feint noise under different circumstances.

You say it's louder when you hit the gas, even with the engine not running? like does it vary with just throttle position with the key on?

Does the car run okay? anything else happen when it makes the noise?

In the video the car is not running but the key in the the II position. It gets louder when the car is running and I hit the gas. When I am not touching the throttle is gets very quiet. The car runs perfect.
