comment High pitch whistle at a very particular throttle level
@Paulster2 Yeah I know the carb cleaner is flammable, I was very careful with it around hot parts and had an extinguisher nearby. Also I've been driving with the custom intake for about a year or two before the noise started...

comment oil sludge in my 1998 Honda Civic LX radiator
Oil in the coolant is often indicative of a blown head gasket, but there are many other reasons why it would happen. Oil in the coolant alone doesn't necessarily mean you need to replace/rebuild the engine. What other symptoms do you encounter and what other tests has the mechanic done on the car? (e.g. compression test)

comment Daytime running light failure — one side only
New info is very helpful! I edited my answer a bit. Bad grounding is well known for making things act in all sorts of miraculous ways. Quick question: do you know where the DRL relay is or were you simply speculating that one might exist and it might be bad?

comment Emergency brake light always on
Your emergency brake should be on a different system than the brake pedal. Where is the switch for the light that you managed to turn off, and what engages it?

What are the colors of the wires coming into the bulb? I expect one to be black, the other to be green-white and then something unknown.
