Default engine whistle

had a whistle start this morning and checked it out when I got home. put a hose to my ear and started searching. found the whistle at the intake runner to the engine on the first cylinder on the driver side. grabbed a 10mm wrench and the bolt was loose so thought I would check the other ones and cannot get to them let alone see them. thought maybe that would fix it so started it up and still there. noise stops when gassing but constant when cruising or idling. anyone have anything to share on how to stop this vacuum leak?
thanks for your input

If you found one of those 10mm bolts loose, there's probably more. Can't you get to them with a 1/4inch socket set? Not too tight, they will snap off ....don't ask how I know. The torque on those bolts are only 13 ft lbs and that's not a heck of a lot so be careful.
