Grand Prix GTP
What does it mean when the supercharger pulley on a 1998 Prand Prix GTP is making noise upon idling or when turning engine off?
It could be the supercharger snout itselft. I just replaced mine because it was making a sort of knocking noise. I started out just hearing it at start up and turning it off. Mine runs like a champ now along with a smaller pulley and an exhaust job.

What causes the supercharger on a 1998 GRAND PRIX GTP to squeak or rattle when engine is running.?
I'm no mechanic but i think i had the same problem. first off i would check all the pulleys and belts on the engine. assuming you already did this . it could be your rotor pack in the supercharger or it could be the nose drive. you can check your nose drive by taking it off the supercharger and inspecting it by turning the pulley. if everything is tight and no worn bearing sound is heard it could very well be your rotor pack. assuming it is the rotor pack, c a mechanic. It could be your supercharger coupler. the stock ones wear out very quickly. _____________________________________________ Make sure it's not your air-conditioning compressor making the noise. Sometimes the compressor makes a rattling noise and standing there listening to it, it does sound like it's coming from the SC.

1998 park avenue ultra has loud knocking coming from super charger what could it be?
It might be the supercharger going bad. The supercharger has a little coupler that is located in between the supercharger nose and the main body. This coupler is located inside and once it starts to wear out it will start making a clunk sound. You can replace the coupler, replace the nose, or rebuild the whole supercharger.

How to fix a supercharger with rattling in snout of supercharger is there a diagram?
If your supercharger is an Eaton type supercharger and it is making noise that is an early indication that the supercharger might need a rebuild. A lot of times the noise is actually coming from a little coupler that is located in the inside of the supercharger. This coupler has 6 holes in it and over time these rounded holes will wear out and become an oval shape. Once it becomes oval shape the supercharger will start to make a rattle sound. If left untreated the rattle will lead to the bearings going bad and then the seals. You will then need to get a complete rebuilt done on the supercharger. The coupler is easy to replace. You basically have to take the supercharger noise off with the 6 bolts that holds it and then once the two ends pull a part the coupler will be sitting right there. Just slide the coupler off of the pins and replace it. Then slide the two ends together and bolt it back up. You will also need to refill the supercharger with oil.

Why does 97 buick regal supercharger is making this cliking noise in the supercharger you can hear the noise everytime you stop what can you do 2 fix it?
95% of the time this just meens the coupler in your supercharger is worn. This is a plastic disc with holes drilled in it that couples the shaft in the nose cone to the gears in the supercharger. The supercharger doesn't have to come off of the car to fix it. It will take around an hour and cost about $30 to $50. There are directions all over the internet. ZZperfomance.com sells one and has links to directions. Someone else even posted a video on youtube.
Asked in Ford Focus
How can you fix a 2000 ford focus that is idling rough and making a hissing sound?
It sounds very much lke you have a leaking vacuum hose. Either it has deteriorated and needs replacing or it has come off its fitting. Carefully check the engine compartment in an effort to locate the source of the hissing sound. When you do repair or replace the hose you will probably cure the source of your idling (and hihssing) problem(s).

What does milky looking oil in engine with white steam from coming exhaust mean?
theres a very good chance that the engine has a blown head gasket. what is happening is the water cooling the engine is escaping past the head gasket & into the engine, mixing with the oil making it milky coloured. the water is also escaping into the cylinders, making the steam come from your exhaust, you may also have trouble when turning the engine over, with water building up in the cylinders when cooling down.

Can the water pump cause problems with heating and cooling in Taurus 96?
Yes(!) the water pump can cause problems with heating and cooling. A failing water pump is not able to properly move engine coolant - making it hard for the heater to produce warm air in the cabin. For example, you may find the heater works better when the engine is turning faster like while driving (versus just idling) - this could be a water pump with worn or a broken impeller. See "Related Questions" below for more about Taurus/Sable heating system problems
Asked in Hybrid Cars
Do hybrid cars conserve energy?
Yes Using regenerative breaking they can recover up to 6% of fuel energy normally lost as heat. Smaller less powerful more fuel efficient engine can be used. Engine can be turned off when stopped to eliminate wasting fuel idling. No Making and disposing of battery consumes energy. Which dominates is as yet unknown.

How do you disable the supercharger in a 1998 Grand Prix GTP and what are the advatages and disadvatages of doing diabling it?
you can't disable it. the only way not to spin the supercharger is take the belt off the supercharger. there are 2 belts on these engines. the one that drives the supercharger does not run anything else. to remove you need to get a 15 mm soclet and rachet and place it on the bolt of the tensioner. take the tension off and remove the belt. only advantage would be you wouldn't be making boost so not as much fuel is added. disadvantage would be that a Honda civic would beat you.
Asked in Saturn (car), Dog Health, Dog Behavior
Why does a 91 Saturn heat up rapidly during a long stop and cool when accelerating?
There are a couple possibilities; if the cooling fan is not turning on, the engine will heat up when idling. The cooling fan runs on a thermostat switch that senses coolant temperature. The switch can fail, as can the motor or the relay. You may need to go through a little diagnostic procedure to figure out what's causing your problem. To see if the fan works, try turning on the air conditioner. When the AC is on, the fan is SUPPOSED to run to pull air across the condenser. if the cooling fan IS turning on, but the engine heats up anyway, it may be a problem with the water pump. After a water pump has been in operation for a while, the vanes will wear and/or corrode making the water pump less effective. At some point it stops functioning at low speed.
