Default noise getting louder

First of all, I really want to thank everyone here, you've all been a big help. When my camshaft position sensor went out, had my mechanic listened to me about OEM parts that I learned about here, I would have saved $70.

Here's the info: A 2006 base model, 37000 miles. I've had it for 4 months and have had to replace the brakes, camshaft sensor and O2 sensor. It was idling rough and the dealer said they "flushed" the engine, whatever that is. The most recent thing I have done to it was put snow tires on a few days ago.

The noise sounds a lot like a remote controlled car. It only happens when I step on the gas, and it does do it in park also. It was very cold out yesterday, 19 degrees. I heard another PT yesterday and it had a similar noise, but I think mine has gotten louder. I will say I did have the radio off, so it may have just been louder because of that.

Any ideas?

Your not giving enough information to diagnose a "noise". Try to have someone stand in front of the car with the hood open and see if you pin-point where it's coming from. Top or bottom, left or right.

Shouldn't be the new snow tires as it does it when it's in park. May be a belt or pulley, low fluid in something like the power steering unit.
