When you come to a stop light in your 1984 GMC truck with a 350 the right side exhaust smokes for about 30 seconds what can be wrong?
\n Answer \n. \nThe oil return holes in the head are probably blocked with sludge.The oil goes 2 the front valves & is sucked into the combustion chamber via worn valve stem seals.\n. \n. \nMost likely it's worn valve seals and valve guides. If your oil returns were blocked, then you would h…ave serious valve cover leaks on a 1984 350 chevy. Chances are, you get a puff of smoke upon the first startup of the day as well. ( Full Answer )

What makes a constant grinding noise while driving on the drivers side coming from up past the CV joint on a 99 Alero?
check for worn out brakes check the wheel bearing - if it's a constant grinding noise, it is probably the bearing. New ones cost around $100 or so from an auto parts store. You can change it yourself if you have some skill, and you can actually do the change without removing the whole spindle assemb…ly - the bearing is attached to the spindle by 3 bolts on the engine side of the spindle. Remember to take off the axle nut first, so that the bearing can just slide off of it. And also remember to disconnect the ABS sensor - and reconnect it when done. ( Full Answer )
Why does the driver side window only go down approximately half an inch then stop but the passenger side is problem free on a 1996 Sunfire GT?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nthe drivers window gets used the most and usually the switch needs replacing but once in a while the motor is bad.\n. \n another answer \n. \nYou don't say if the window will eventually go all the way down or not, or if you have the same problem with\nit going back… up.\nMy '96 passenger window works about the same way, although it seems to go down a little further with one "hit" of the switch than\nit does up. When I try to put it up, it moves about 1/4 inch or less, then stops. If I wait for a minute or two, it will go up \nanother 1/4 inch. (or less) My answer is to not use the window. However, I've read somewhere online, that the motor has a thermal switch\ninside which kills power to the window if the motor gets hot. The suggestion was to make sure that there was nothing binding the\nwindow inside the door panel, or to make sure that there was no window tinting material wrinkled and binding. The binding would cause\nthe motor to overheat. Failing that, they suggested\nreplacing the motor. ( Full Answer )
Your car is making a humming noise right after you start it but it's only when the car is driving It stops when you hit the breaks It only goes on for a minute or two and then it stops Any ideas?
Answer . Do you have Anti-lock brakes? My sisters van was doing somthing similar, and I found out that the ABS controller was mal-functioning.
What does it mean when you accelerate from a dead stop and the car makes a grinding noise for a couple of seconds?
Answer . It sounds to me like you might have a brake shoe dragging. Try coasting to a stop and then accelerate and see if the noise is still there. The noise could be from a front shoe that is hanging up when pressure is applied to stop the car. It could be caused by a bad caliper piston or warpe…d rotors. Kind of a hard problem to diagnose but sounds like the most probable cause is in the brake system. Hope this helps ( Full Answer )
Why does your car make a grinding noise in the rear right wheel area when driving at 45 mph for less than a minute then the noise suddenly stops and everything is fine?

You have a clattering noise on the back of your 1997gl vw golf no one seems to know what the problem is can you help It comes for the rear left passenger side and only happens when you go over road hu?
Answer . I had the same problem and at first it was the heat sheild/took some twist ties and pinned it back up. After a while I checked with the VW dealer for the pins...not that expensive.

I had the same problem, open the hatch and there might be 5 or 6 wrenches in your trunk, now remove or secure them, and it should go away ( Full Answer )
2WD Astro Vanï¿½s have load problems with their rear differentials. The ï¿½Grinding Noiseï¿½ is a bearing of some type. Axle bearings can be replaced with a moderate to advanced skill set. However any other bearing, pinion, or carrier, require professional tools and a shop press; such an op…eration is beyond the normal means of almost any auto shop and require a shop with a good machinist or straight gear specialist. Bearings that go un-repaired for too long result in misalignment of the pinion ï¿½ carrier set and warping of the axles. None of these operations are easy, or cheap. I am finding that astro vans are very likely to bend the rear end housing. I am fixing mine for the second time now. The axle housing bends and then puts the carier bearings in a bind. also check the outer ends of the axle shafts for bearing wear. Replace the shafts if you see any pitting or galling. Good luck.

Four wheel drive 98 Chevy blazer it makes a whinding noise that comes from the right front wheel and when you put the drive in four wheel the noise stops could this be a bearing problem?
I HAVE A 97 EXPLORER, AND MY TRUCK DID THE SAME THING. IT MADE THE NOISE LOUDLY AT 40 MPH. UNDER THAT IT WAS FAIRLY SILENT. I WAS TOLD IT WAS MY TRANSMISSION, AND I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE THE WHOLE THING TAKEN APART, AND FIXED. WELL, IT TURNED OUT TO BE MY HUB BEARING. NOT TO BAD TO REPLACE, TOOK 1 HOUR… (THATS WITH TIRE AND BRAKE ASSEMBLY REMOVAL AND REINSTALL) WELL, ANYWAY I HOPE IT HELPS Answer I wish Wish I knew mine did the same thing for 2 days then quit. I was getting off the hwy and heard the noise. When I put in 4hi it went away. This went on for 2 days I kept trying 2hi every so often. Also the truck did not want to back up in 4hi. On the second day I tried 2hi and it has been fine for the last week. I have been scared to try 4wd since though. I'm thinking it may have been something electronic. I had just bought the truck. And I know they washed the engine bay. I had the same problem with my 93 Blazer. It was my 4x4 solenoid not disengaging entirely. This is located on the front axel and relatively easy to change and is not expensive at a junk yard. Had the same problem with my 1997 gmc jimmy when i tryed to put it in 4x4 front drive shaff would turn but the tires wouldn't so it made a clicking/whinding sound until i put it back in to 2h and it would do it for a little while then it stop and it was the vaccum actualater that runs a cable down to the front diffrentical its located under the battery.. dry rotten out and fell apart. wasnt engageing my front drive shaff all the way 49.99 to fix the problem!!!

It could be anything from a loose exhaust bracket to a major problem with the internals of your transmission. In any case, we can help identify the proper course of action and remember our initial diagnosis is free of charge. ( Full Answer )
Why would a 1992 Chrysler New Yorker make a horrible noise coming from the back on the passenger side?

Answer . Assuming you have push button or a swith to go into 4wheel drive, the problem is most likely the button/switch is going bad and putting the vehicle in low 4x4. You should get it serviced very soon.
Why does a 1992 Buick Regal automatic slip into neutral when coming to a full stop and require several seconds to shift back into drive?
Answer . Probably a worn hydraulic pump, bad internal seals or possibly a plugged transmission filter. Any of these conditions can cause low hydraulic pressure to the clutches. When the engine speed slows, the pump also turns slower, allowing the pressure to drop a little, especially if there ar…e worn parts. If it's not the filter, you'll probably need to rebuild the transmission. If it IS the filter, it usually means that there has been a lot of wear on the clutches, making a lot of debris that gets caught in the filter. Either way, it's not very good. ( Full Answer )
When you drive slow your car makes this high pitched squeaking noise and then when you are at a stop light it makes a grinding sound But when you drive faster the squeaking goes away?
Answer . The high pitched squeaking noise you are hearing is the warning device telling you your brake pads are worn out and need replacing. The grinding sound is the sound you hear when you ignore the squeaking noise and allow your brake pads to wear so much that the metal backing of the pad is… rubbing against the rotor. Replace all brake pads on the same axle and have the rotors turned at a machine shop. You may end up having to replace the rotors if they are damaged too severely. ( Full Answer )
Why does the passenger power seat in a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited ZJ go back and forth but not up and down making a grinding noise instead?

When you set the alarm on your 2000 firebird the lights flip up and down then it makes a loud grinding noise for a few seconds then stops why does it do that?
First check to see if the head lights do that when you just use them and not when your setting the alarm .. if its not the head lights i have no idea .. even if it doesnt do it when you use the head lights alone still check the track they are on i know my head lights wouldn't work because the back p…lastic housing that connects to the head lamp motor check to see if everything is in order .. if nothing is out of place then all i could imagine it being is the signal from the alarm that is making the headlights move is telling them to close for to long and the gears are grinding .. idk if they are safety gears kinda like and they can handle the grinding you can look to see ho they hold up .. you mightg just be better off leaving it how it is to be honest ... and if you like firebirds don't go get a camaro its such a better car you might like the firebird styles but as far as mechanics the firebird is a piece of sh*t Actually the problem is with the headlight motor (the motor that brings the lights up/down). This happened to me, the noise your hearing is the plastic motor gear inside the motor. The gear has worn out (gear tooth are broken). Your motor is more than likely working fine and just needs a new gear which can be purchased on the internet. Do a search for firebird headlight gear. They usually sell a gear that is brass and have instructions on installing it. ( Full Answer )

4 wheel drive light stays on even in 2 wheel drive when grinding begins I shift into 4 wheel drive then back into 2 wheel drive and grinding stops but light stays on 1989 S-10 4x4 4.3 Liter?
You can try disconnecting the battery, leaving it off for 5 or more minutes. If that doesn't work, check the wire connecters on the transfer case.. if you havent already, try switching when you are in neutral then putting it in reverse when it is in 2 wheel drive
sounds like the starter is "grinding" on the flywheel teeth. Could just need a shim or two. Or the starter teeth may be getting worn.
What causes your 96 tacoma 4x4 4-cylinder 134000 miles to have a ticking noise when you first crank it up cold and when it warms up it stops please help you out with this problem?
Could be a weak oil pump. The reason it is ticking is that the oil is not flowing to the lifters when it's cold. It's not that big of a deal.
There is a grinding noise in the back end of my 2001 blazer. It stops when you apply the brakes and now you have to come to a complte stop. Have had new brakes and shocks - now what?
I don't know specifically what the problem could be but you can jack up the rear end until the wheels are off of the ground then rotate the wheels back and forth to see if you can reproduce the noise and check to see if there is any movement up and down or in and out of each wheel indicating bearing… or axle problems, check the differential fluid level and also the universal joints for play.

My 1998 ES300 is making a knocking or grinding noise while in idle and will stop after drive it for a while but will return once you go back to idle Can anyone help?
I just took my car into to shop and the problem is the EGR Valve.
You can't. But what you can do is try and keep busy and not be too concerned about them because the more fear you put behind the thoughts that they won't go away, the more vivid they will become and alarming they will be. The less you worry about a normal brain's reaction to a fearful event, the qui…cker your mind will settle down- this may take many weeks, and still may appear from time to time despite your best efforts to remain calm and let them pass. Time will fix them. ( Full Answer )

What making a nasty grinding noise in my front end in my dodge While I'm driving if i hit a bump or dip in the road it sets off a nasty gringing noise. If I stop it goes away but comes back. Help.?
It could be the disc brake covers on the inside of the rotor. One of mine was knocked up against the rotor and made a grindingand rattling sound that got better as I went faster. Worth a look because it's an easy fix if that is the problem!. It could also be bad wheel bearings. Does it stop or chan…ge when turning? if it does, that would be another vote for bad wheel bearings. ( Full Answer )

brake pads could be worn out.. would it be safe to drive for now if the front brake pads are ok?
You (most likely) threw a pad, as in the brake 'pad' has separated from the metal plate it sits on that keeps it in it's proper place inside the brake caliper. When your foot's not on the brake pedal there's minimal pressure applied by the caliper by the brake system and that small, constant 'push' …from the system is enough to cause the pad so scrape, vibrate and make that lovely grounding noise. When you depress the brake pedal the remainder of the brake pad that's there is being squeezed with immense pressure and essentially unable to produce a noice that sounds like metal lightly grounding. You might need a new rotor on that corner now, I wouldn't be surprised it the rotor's surface resembles the Grand Canyon. ( Full Answer )

Mercedes Benz 1999 e430 makes a loud humming noise when idle and reverse but not drivingwhen you come to a stop and put it in neutral it stops but seems to be getting louder as time goes on?
Check your radiator. From your description your car might be overheating, due to poor air intake at low speeds.
It is not safe to drive. Possibilities for cause, maybe wheel bearings, brake pads worn down to steel backing plates, if its front wheel drive there are even more possibilities. It has to be repaired before further driving.
What would cause a loud winding noise only on the left front side and will stop if you turn the wheel to the left but then comes back when you straighten the wheel back up of a 2002 Saturn?
When the disk brake pads wear down the "sensor" touches the rotor, causing a high-pitched sound to warn you that it's time to service the brakes. If the sound changes when you apply the brakes, you should have the brakes checked. You may need to replace the pads.

I don't think anyone can answer this for you without seeing and hearing the jeep. Listen to it while it's running and try to locate the noise. Be careful because the exhaust is hot and the fan will be moving while on
This could be due to a number of reasons. Your best course of action is to get it examined by a mechanic. . Your brake pads could be worn down. This can cause a whistling or crunching/grinding noise. Driving with defective brake pads is illegal. . A vacuum leak. When you slow down particularly…, the throttle valve closes, if there is a crack or leak in the vacuum it can suck in air and cause a whistling noise. . You may be trying to force the car to drive in the wrong gear or you may be slowing the car down using the gears and clutch rather than the brakes, causing a whirring or crunching noise. This also damages your car and affects your ability to perform an emergency brake. As always, consult a mechanic. ( Full Answer )
The brake pads are worn out and need to be replaced. The grinding sound means your brakes are about to stop working.
