The answer depends on the sensitivity of the listener. There is a huge variation in people's ability to distinguish between nearby frequencies.
You could have given more information . As is there may be any number of reasons. Could be a loose wheel nut, a worn front wheel bearing, a bad brake pad, a warped rotor, a loose caliper or even a worn CV joint. I have personally seen all of those problems on Sable and Taurus. Whatever of those it could be dangerous. Don't delay in taking it to an expert - your safety depends on… Read More
Could be many things but a front wheel bearing/hub assembly going bad comes to mind. Scalloped worn tires can give you a humming noise also.
Hard to tell without hearing it. With engine running, open the hood and try to determine the area where the noise is coming from then repost info.
You need to do some detective work to try to help us determine the source. Is it coming from under the hood in the engine compartment, under the car, up front, the rear, the exhaust? Repost your findings.
When a shift solenoid goes bad the solenoid doesn't make any noise.
Worn engine parts. Most likely a rod bearing is worn.
An expert would have to hear the sound for a diagnosis. It may be your main bearings are knocking. If it also happens if you lift your foot sharply OFF the accelarator, then that's a sure thing. - Only way to check for sure is to fit an oil pressure gauge.
Check your timing belt , and your fuel pump inertia switch ! Good Luck !
Overheating. Have the cooling system checked.
its probably cuz of Blow off valve.... only cars with turbo makes tht sound
A clicking noise is not a common sound for a bad ring and pinion or axle bearings. Use electronic chassis ears (denlors ste6600) to help pinpoint the source of the noise. U-joints in the driveshaft could make a clicking noise although it should click or make more noise on acceleration. I know you said it didn't, but listen REALLY carefully, and if it's still there when you are hitting the gas it could be your… Read More
A belt that is too tight will cause a squeal on a Kia Sportage. To resolve this issues just loosen the tension on the belt.
Motor and transmission mounts. Or differential is getting worn(check fluid- sometimes the differential fluid and transmission are shared- if not, refill or youll lose the differential ). Check the easiest first, the mounts are probably old, worn and broken.
Most likely a bad tire.
The white smoke under hood might be as a result of a mechanical problem. The reason may be because the timing belt is rubbing itself under something under the hood.
Check oil level Check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge Improper oil pressure going to hydraulic lifters and/or engine sludge causing blockage of oil flow to lifters. Get an engine flush and oil change and see if that helps, if it doesn't get the truck to a mechanic as the problem maybe much more serious.
If a scooter engine is louder than normal if could indicate one of several problems. You should check the oil level straight away, especially if it is a two stroke engine, as lack of oil, especially two stroke can cause major damage to the engine, and if the engine is running dry it would definitely be louder than normal, and could seize if you continue to use it.The most likely cause of the noise is… Read More
Hi, Have you found out what the problem was? If so could you please let me know what it was because I am having the same problem. Thanks
Hi, Sounds like the blend door actuator is overtraveling, which usually means the actuator is going bad. This actuator controls a blend air door which diverts the air either around the heater core, or through it, depending on the temp setting and the air temp inside the car. This is a common failure item, but the dash board usually has to be pulled to get to it. The actuator is located on the pasenger side… Read More
I had the same question until my wife noticed the tag rattling as I took off, I put 2 rubber pads behind it and the noise stopped! I had the same question until my wife noticed the tag rattling as I took off, I put 2 rubber pads behind it and the noise stopped!
I have a 2001 I had the same problem when driven through rough roads and railroad tracks, I replaced the front struts and that solved the problem. I have a 2000 that rattles too. Looking for the answer.
Usually by the passenger side firewall Some are accessible behind the glove box (inside the passenger compartment) Some are accessible at the firewall (outside the passenger compartment)
An LSD addition for a car will not make steering more difficult. Instead it improves it drastically as it adds more traction for the car.
Could be alternator bearing? Could be water pump? Could be Power steering pump (check fluid) Could be belt tensioner? Could be torque converter?
bad transfer case
Check operation of exhaust "heat riser" valve. Also check exhaust header gasket for leaks. Heat riser should be near the exhaust header, in exhaust pipe connection.
The brackets that hold the brake pads in place are worn and are allowing the pads to rattle.
The Transmission needs SERVICED A.S.A.P Hope This Helps.
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… Read More
If the noise stops when the car stops, it's in the wheels. If it sounds like a roaring sound, it's a wheel bearing that needs replaced. If it sound like "Whoop..whoop..whoop.." it's a bad tire...
how to change preasure hoses for power steering how to change preasure hoses for power steering
Not sure if engine related maybe pre-ignition try a higher grade of fuel May be power train related and perhaps a cv joint
hm... check your ignition timing (or get a mechanic to do it). If the car had been revved high, you may have rod or piston damage. If your ignition timing was set too high, you may have (had?) knock and ping. Basically it's predetonation of the fuel-air mixture. Since it's predetonated, as you can imagine, it's working against the force of the engine. Can cause serious problems.
If it's a creaking noise then it is most likely that your compressor is broken.
Most likely, yes. If there was a heat shield, and your debating either removing it or not replacing it... please DO replace it.
lifters are beginning to go. timing chain (if vehicle is equiped) may be coming loose. and or exhaust pieces are loose.
First make sure the tires are not rubbing on the suspension system or on a mud flap. See if there is unusual tire wear. If not, it is likely a front wheel bearing. If the noise is in relation to the speed of the car, this is the most likely scenario.
Are the tires actually rubbing or do you just hear a noise? If they are rubbing you have a serious front end problem. If you are just hearing a noise it could be that your front brake pads are worn out. There is a little metal pad built onto the brake pads that rub when the pads are worn out, telling you that it is time to have them attended to.
The 95 4.3 was not exactly the same as the 96' 4.3. In general, the block(casting), the intake, heads are all different. In addition, the oil pan for '96 and up is an aluminum pan, the '95 had a stamped steel. Also the '95 4.3 were either TBI or CPI engines, '96 and up were CSFI engines. These engines are not interchangeable, one will not bolt up to the other and vise versa. Hope this… Read More
In order to tell you that you would have to describe the noise and what the car is doing when the noise is made. Are you idling, driving, just turned the AC on? What is occurring and what is the noise? Idling and sounds worse when AC is on. Sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine. Vehicle has 120k miles
I do not know when this questions was ask. In Ka steering noise .. show it immidiately to your dealer. I had similar problem with noise and hard seeting with funny noises. I end up with 2,000$ repair charges. Steering pump oli likage on battry charger and I need to replace all...
The most likely reason is that the passenger side CV joint is worn out, and needs to be replaced.
This is most certainly your brake pads. On Honda brake pads there is what is called a squealer, a small metal piece that causes that sound you are hearing when your pads get too low. Your best bet is to take your car into a Honda dealer and have them replace your pads and check your rotors. Do not take your car into a midas or gateway because their pads will continue to squeal due… Read More
Not likely. If you have a noisy lifter then its oil port is probably plugged because you didn't change the oil and it's too late for synthetic oil to help you. Try it, though, because the alternative is a lot more costly.
u joint or my be the trannie mount. but sounds more like the u joint
bad axle joint or ball joints and turn stops can make popping
Battery dying - there isn't enough power left in the battery to turn the motor over during the starting process. Could also be the starter selenoid or the starter motor itself.
Answer Don't know for sure, but it sounds like bad sway bar bushings. Answer that means your cv axle u joints are going out. when you turn left and it makes the popping noise or like a galoping horse, that means the right side is bad. and visaversa for turning right. it should cost around 150-250 to fix. - On my 2002 Cavalier it made that noise and it was my strut mount had gone… Read More
I have a 02 Sedona and I think I'm getting the same noise. It happens when you are driving and it sounds kind of like one of those slide whistles. I think it only happens when the A/C is on so that leads me to believe it is a vent or something that automatically opens and closes. Or maybe it's a ghost. i also have an 04 sedona, and i frequently get noise which seems… Read More
It might not be the timing chain, check if the exhaust muffler has not come adrift.
Bad bearing in a belt driven accessory? i.e. alternator, water pump, idler pulley, belt tensioner, etc.?
check the belts
There are two possible answers of which I can recall. Your question however, does not give any clue as to which would apply, so here are both. 1. Ampere [Amp] is a base measuring unit of constant electrical current. see http://en.wikipedia.org/Ampere 2. Amplifier [amp] is a piece of electronic equipment that increases [amplifies] the power of an electric signal. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amp
hi iwould first try some engine slick 50 if that would not work tune-up next, then mech last. good luck I answered a similar question regarding oil getting to the top of the engine. Try switching to a genuine Mistubishi oil filter. Aftermarket filters do not allow sufficient oil to get to the top of the engine, causing the valves & lifters to "tap" loudly. Changing back to a Mitsubishi OEM filter solved my engine… Read More
Often what you're describing can be caused by the alternator. After you start the engine, the alternator is working hard to recharge the battery for the NEXT startup. There can also be other causes of noises such as you describe, so don't think that's the only possibility.
It's probably the bearings. Unfortunately you can't really repair them yourself but you can purchase a rebuilt pump at most auto parts retailers.
Did you ever find out how to fix this? i have this same issue... Sounds like what's wrong with mine, the idle air control valve. I haven't replaced my own yet, but it seems pretty straightforward. We had this problem with our 97 SL2 (Manual 5 sp) and it was serious and it sounds like what you guys have. The power steering fluid line leaked (Not enough to set off any system lights) all over… Read More
your breaks will squeall when they need to be replaced and your rotors will pulstae when breaking if they are twisted or bent. make sure that well is tightened to manufactures spec. i belive it is 100 ft/lbs. or if there is mud in the wheel or just not balanced or mounted on rim proprly. even though the tire is round it will mount on rim like an egg if not done properly. just watch… Read More
This sounds like a common problem, but it would be nice to have more info on the Jeep. You must have the 5.2 engine. It comes with a Model 249 Transfer case. This T-Case has what is called a Viscus Coupler in it that is supposed to give approx 60% power to the rear wheels, and 40% to the front. Then change as needed. The Viscus Coupler is known to be a problem. If you… Read More
Brakes should not activate. In four wheel drive mode there is a possibility of some wheel hop or binding if you hit some dry spots while in a tight parking maneuver.
sounds like you have traction control and the brakes a activating to keep the car from going out of control and into a spin Make sure your not in 4-wheel drive. It feels like the front brakes are engaging during sharp turns. My '02 Trailblazer has undergone two transfer case switch replacements (the knob on the dash - 2 LO, 4 LO, 4 HI ). The transfer case would swith to 4 Hi and 4… Read More
you need a new starter motor
Have you checked the codes?? auto zone will do it for free. It might be the governor pressure switch in your tranny. Always check for codes. best of luck, tony Answer It could be a number of things.. the transmission fluid could be low or dirty. Try replacing that with ATF+4. If that doesn't work, do a tune-up with new spark plugs, wires, distributor, rotor and ignition coil. Try changing the fuel filter. If it's… Read More
Check the level of the gear lube in the differential. If you can't see any or if it's in bad shape, you may want to pull the access cover to look at the gears. If you see ANY pitting or marks the differential gears are probably messed up. It could also be bearings, but in either case, don't ignore it because it can fail while you're going down the road, then it will sieze up… Read More
sounds like your alternator has a bearing going bad,which in turn stops alternator charging properly and doesnt complete electric circuit have alternator tested on your vehicle
It's a good idea to lube the door hinges every time you change the oil or lube your chassis. Once the hinge pins are worn to to the point that they make noise, you'll need to replace the hinge pins and bushings.
I am not sure as to what sound the noise is making but if it sounds like the engine is still funning after the car has been turned off it is the fan. Depending on what temp the engine is and the temp outside, the fan could run if its too hot.
have you checked the cables to see if they are corroided, loose, or broken If your battery is good then it is your starter you will need to replace it.
your car probably has transmission issues. tow it to a transmission shop.
It sounds like the power steering pump to me. my guess would be that you have a bad or loose belt ( sliping ) or you have a pully that is gonna either come flying off or lock up completely....neither is good. also a tight belt can cause the whine if it is tight the whine could be coming from the pulley bearings (alternator etc)
I think your shocks are sticking or getting stuck as they move up and down. You probably need to replace them. It could also be that one of the components of the suspention is loose or worn out so check all of the bushings and ball joints.
squeaky sounds that go away when you push the breaks are most probably the indicators on your brake pads that squeak to let you know that they are getting worn out and need to be replaced soon also dirty brakes will chirp while driving, a thorough cleaning and lube of the proper parts usually cures this There are typically metal tabs on your brake pads that are meant to squeak when your pads start getting… Read More
The drive belt may be slipping or going bad.
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.
If it's a grinding or howling sound, the heater blower motor bearing has probably dried up and ready to fail.
Shortly after I purchased my used '93 sport I was traveling down the highway and hit a bump. My jeep front tire started to bounce like a basketball. Scared the hell out of me. I took it to a local suspension shop and they found a part on the suspension had worn out. I believe it was a shock of some sort. Not an ordinary shock near your tires but one that lies in a… Read More
It sounds like a suspension bushing or ball joint. Find a good suspension specialist in your area. I would highly recommend against a dealer or general mechanic. Ask around for the people who specialize in alignments and supspension. They can generally do the job faster, cheaper and much better than anyone else. Dealer mechanics only know how to replace parts until the problem goes away. You may end up with a lot of new parts… Read More
IT SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD BE A BEARING IN ONE OF YOUR PULLEYS I WOULD TAKE THE BELT OFF and spin your pulleys ONE AT A TIME BY HAND AND SEE IF ANY OF THEM ARE HARD TO SPIN OR MAKE A NOISE WHEN YOU SPIN THEM REPLACE THEM IF THERE IS ANY DIFFUCULTY
I'd still check that rear U-Joint a little more closely. They can often FEEL right but still have a problem under load.
A bad wheel bearing does not sound like a jet engine. It is more of a grinding noise. If you only hear this during acceleration, I would suspect your breather intake is loose or disconnected. Unload the bearings by swerving right and left. If the noise disappears then you may indeed have a bad bearing. In other words if you swerve right and the noise disappears, suspect a bad right wheel bearing, etc.
No,not the fan clutch or power steering pump for that matter. Had same touble with my 2000 Buick. Turned out to be, of all things, the front struts not properly lubricated. Dealer dismantled the top of the struts and used a very heavy grease all over. Put it back together and NO noise! NOW, this is assuming you only experience the noise when turning the steering wheel! The simple answer to your question, as asked… Read More
If you have a manual transmission and it sounds like you do your clutch has become worn unevenly and shudders as it gains then loses contact with the flywheel or "slips", also the grinding is a bad sign. It could be the flywheel but more likely it is the clutch.On a 2001 depending how it has been driven replacement may be a wise choice especially with the grinding noise that indicates scoring of the flywheel… Read More
you just need a new relay switch just go to auto zone, pep boys, or kragen and ask the people at the front to help
It might be a problem with your mutlifunction computer. Check to see if your ignition wires are still connected to the multifunction computer. I had the opposite problem where I couldn't get the chime on my 1998 Ford Explorer Sport to stop chiming or ringing or pinging. After isolating the noise, I found that the chiming was coming from a black box under the dash, behind the radio. Opening the box, looking at its circuit… Read More
I would guess you have a bad or loose drive or serpentine belt or your disc brake warning device is telling you that your brake pads are worn out. New Post---Pincheweenie: To piggyback on that....... : NO guessing required here....I have a 03' SES that is chirping and I have replaced the serpentine belt twice, one of the pullies that was wobbling around in there and the tensioner. The noise is gone but we will… Read More
If that's the extent of the complaint, check the serpentine belt and tensioner.
Sounds Like You Have A Brake Problem. Drop By a Good Garrage And Have It Checked Out. Good Luck
Valve clearences (ohv), bad valves, timing out, bad rocker arms, piston slap. Easy tests for all of the above, just google them. Some cars just have an annoying tick, only way to fix them is a good radio or cd player
I have a 2003 Mazda 6 with approx 80k miles. This noise confounded me for months. On ours, it showed up when pulling into or out of our driveway (forward or reverse, always with the wheels turned hard left). It is NOT the CV joint in the axle. It is NOT anything rubbing in the fender well. It is NOT the wheel bearings. I finally found it after we had the brakes done. After having… Read More
If your vehicle has a mechanical speedometer it might be your cable rubbing against its casing
Check the CV joints. (front wheel & 4 wheel drive vehicles)
That would be the vehicle telling you to slow down. I am not kidding. It is a safety waring system You will hear the bing bing bing sound just before you hear the whirring sound of the police siren
Hold down the dolby button for three seconds and with any of the knobs, raise it to #3. I hear this works, but not on mine :( Good luck!
Brake linings worn? Wheel bearing?
Do u have independent front suspension? Also u should have ur hubs checked out espcially if they are autos becasue they could be broke.
It is more than likely that you need a new strut
Check to make sure that all bulbs are working properly if so replace turn signal flasher
Could either be a bad starter drive or a bad tooth on the ring gear/flywheel Try turning the engine manually (large socket on crankshaft) and see if it starts without grinding. If so, probably a bad tooth. If no change probably a bad starter drive
