Or at least that's what it sounds like.

Today, I was standing outside my Altima while it was idling and the fan was cooling the engine. When the fan cut off, though, the muffler began to make high pitched squeaking noises from inside that sounded like a trapped and dying canary. When the fan cut back on, the noise ceased. When it cut off, it resumed.

Grrrr... Any ideas?

LOL Peterson...

I am dumbfounded. I take excellent care of my car and this is a very annoying sound. It is painful to the ears like fingernails against a chalk board. No ideas on what could cause it?

Yeah, that's huge... But mine is the factory SE muffler. I looked under it and it has the big NISSAN stamp so it's original. I just can't understand what this new annoyance is caused by, and I would like to avoid another trip to the dealer.
