if the car is rear wheel drive, sounds like a u-joint. If it is front wheel drive, sounds like a cv joint. It could also be your engine mounts wearing out. If the rubber insulation has worn out then the engine will shift slightly against the mount and make a clunking noise. This happened on my 96Quest minivan.
It depends on when you hear the noise, but it likely a joint in the front wheel drive unit.
Gun shots from a drive-by ought to do the trick. But the magazine capacity would have to be somewhat small, or the cyclic rate quite high.
It would help to specify the type of noise and type of vehicle in question.
If it's a type of clunking noise, check your gearbox. If it's some kind of rattling, check your hubcaps.
Loose belt - will sound like a screeching noise.
Could be your timing belt.
If it's a clunk sound, check universal joint bearings and drive shaft bolts. Otherwise please describe noise.
If you operate a front wheel drive vehicle, the clunking noise you hear may be a CV joint bearing going bad.
could be a wheel bearing...or just that its a french car
If the chirping noise speeds up as the truck speeds up, check the u-joints in the drive line.
The most common cause of the whistling in a 2003 Impala is a vacuum leak. Any of the lines under the hood could be causing the noise.
It sounds like a wheel bearing has gone. DO NOT continue to drive until you have had it checked out.
The problem ended up being defective spark plug wires. sounds like rod bearings. It couldn't be the rod bearings, because the engine would run for a few miles and then quit. Rod bearings tend to go quickly.
After replacing the struts, CV joints, tie-rod ends etc....the noise is still there. I found it's actually the top strut bearing plate that wears out. They are available at some auto parts. ....this is the source of the noise....
Well without further analysis or information, a short answer would be that your engine is BROKEN.
You probably have something wrong with your engine, or brakes. You should really have that checked.
My 2003 cts has "differentail noise"not wheel noise. I hear its somewhat common. Unfortunately rear end failure is somewhat common. I have had the same noise for years, and I am at 130,000 mi. No failure The answer to your question is that when the transmission stays in the lower gear due to not having got your speed up, the noise will happen... it`s not due to a mechanical problem.
A person walking in a straight line at a constant speed would not be accelerating. A person standing still in one spot would not be accelerating.
sounds like you are too far down the launch ramp or you live in a really wet area ..
Answer Humming noise from front endI just got my car fixed with the same problem and it was the wheel bearing and it is gone. Was it a fwd car?
Noises are impossible to correctly diagnoise unless heard. Take it to a garage.
Check wheel bearings - quickly! Very dangerous left unrepaired!
could be a center support bearing or a bad engine mount. i would check those first.
In my experience, the noise would be a rapid high pitched clunk when turning the wheel in either direction. It would depend on if it was the outer or inner joint, most likely you will expect to pay over $100 at a decent mechanic. The cv joint itself is probably around $25-$30.
