Transmission Fluid
1995-2005 Chevy Cavaliers
Dog Health
Maple Syrup

If a 1998 Cavalier is making a noise almost like a knife being sharped by a sand belt and you smell something like maple syrup at lower speeds could it be your transmission or a converter?

I would guess that this is most probably the transmission. The maples smell is the transmission fluid. It has a sweet smell. The grinding could be that the gears are off. When was the last time the timing belt was changed? I'd get it into a tranny shop and have them take alook as well. I don't recommend changing or adding more tranny fluid till then. You make make the situation worse.

AnswerSyrupy smell could also be antifreeze. Bad water pump maybe bearings are grinding. AnswerMaple syrup smell is usually antifreeze. The grating noise points to the water pump (the name "water pump" is a misnomer because it actually cirulates your antifreeze/coolant). Listen near the serpentine belt, if it is louder there, then it is very likely the water pump.

It depends. If the note is not sharped or flatted due to the key signature or an accidental earlier in the measure, it is a flat. If the note is sharped, the natural sign indicates that you play it a semitone lower.

There are a number of chords that contain three sharped notes. If the question was supposed to be about which KEY contains three sharps, then the answer is A major/F# minor.

A male lion and a silverback gorilla are similar in strength, though the lion as a predator has clear advantages in other aspects for example, strong long sharped claws, strong sharped teeth much larger than the gorilla's. The fighting disposition of the lion is also greater, The silverback rarely engages in physical fighting. So in the majority of cases the lion would win.

An accidental is a sharp or flat that isn't in the key signature. For example, if your key signature says that all f's and c's are sharp, and then a G is sharped somewhere in the music, it would be an accidental.

It depends on the key. Some keys will have no sharps while some will have all the notes sharped. C major has no sharps, while D has two sharps, F# and C#.

It is 'sharped'. If the note is natural at its lower pitch, it has one sharp at its higher pitch. If it is a flatted note at its lower pitch, it becomes natural at the higher pitch.

Write the sharp or flat symbol to the left of the note which needs to be sharped or flatted. Accidentals written before a note are never placed to the right of the note which needs to be raised or lowered.

For all musical instruments the G major scale has one sharped note (F), so the notes are: G, A, B, C, D, E, F sharp, G.
