Hey Sandra==The only thing I can think of is if the engine and trans mounts are broken. Have them checked out. Good luck, Joe
This is often a problem with the CV joint.
Take it to the garage and have them check for a cracked rotor or a loose caliper.
The frist thing I would check would be the engine mounts.
More than likely the sway bar links - TSB on these
newdiv vacuum leak, cat. converter comming apart, exhaust noise
check the rear drag links for wear the ball joints wear out a lot on them
Check the lug nuts immediately. Check tha clip that holds the brake pad on. I had a loose pad that made more of a tick sound that went away when I pressed on the brakes
you might want to check your motor mounts...I had one gone ..had it replaced...month later gone again...Now I had it replaced again and havent had any problems.
loose lugnut, wheel bearings, cv joint, u joint, bad tire(s), it could be many problems. i would start in the order mentioned and go from there. just dont go to a mechanic saying "i dont know what this noise is.." they are likely to soak you with more to spend.. hope that helps..
It is definitely not a good idea, a thumping noise usually means it has a large bubble, belts are broken or part of the tread is missing. Driving would be unsafe because a blow out of that nature, you could lose control of the car, not able to stop and possibly get into an accident.
The driveshaft might be out of balance or dented in some way, also check the u joints
When they were repairing it they probably pushed a plug through your tire accidentally and left it, then put in another plug correctly to seal your tire.
Hello, my suggestion would be just opening the hood when the noise goes on. Try to locate where the noise comes from. I have similar problem with my Taurus 2000 SE. It occasionally makes the noise somewhere under the hood. I sent the car to pep boys today. they were not able to locate the noise because it was quiet . so i have to wait until the noise goes up again and open the hood and see.
have seen in the past , fuel pump moan/noise on this make & model / from a ford tech.
You would be on the Aries-Taurus cusp.
possibly on of the belt pulleys or a vaccum leak
i don't know if this helps but i just had my car repaired tonight and when i picked it up this was a new problem that wasn't there before. i took it back and they said the thumping was caused by a rotor??? that they forgot to tighten? i am not sure i have the name right!
replace the belt with a goodyear bet
Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.
The whining noise in our 2001 2.2 cavalier turned out to be the a/c compressor. It ended up going out at about 120,000 miles. I would suggest having it serviced. I wish we would have had ours serviced.
The first thing I would check is for a bad tire. The steel belts in the tire can separate and cause it to not run 'true'. A bad tire also may not show a visible symptom - having the tire balanced is one way to identify a problem. Another, no-cost diagnostic check would be to rotate the tires to the front and see if the sound / problem moves too.
If the noise changes pitch under acceleration and deacceleration I would suspect the carrier bearings or pinion bearings are shot. If there is no change under acceleration or deacceleration I would suspect an alxe bearing is shot.
Have those two front tires checked out there might be a bulge or a broken belt in the tire.
I would check the suspension bushings, if one of them is worn it would cause a knocking noise.
