Mitsubishi challenger, 2.8 TD, when driving along, at steady speed, about 1800rpm, there's a rattling and smoke. thought it was injectors but had them recon'd. Think it could be timing chain loose or injector pump. any ideas? Rich

I Have an 04 mini cooper S that's developed a rattling noise which sounds even when the engine is idle. I took it to a local garage and the guy said that the bearings were quite worn in the super charger and thinks we should get a reconditioned/new supercharger. The mileage is 47,000. Is it possible the bearings could wear so soon or do you think the rattle is caused by something else? Thanks. Nicola

Wheel Bearing? Hi. I have a 2005 Pontiac G6. Recently there is a noise coming from the front end of the car, I think its coming from the front tire area. The best way I can describe it is like a humming, almost like I have agressive tires on the car that "hum" on the road. As I drive faster the hum gets louder and it starts around 20km/h. What could this be? wheel bearings? The car is a lease and I'm handing it back in 2 months. Is it ok to leave this? Or could it be major repairs or dangerous t


You need to get it fixed or the front wheel whichever one it is can fold in on you. ... 2006 Pontiac G6

Just bought a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire SE for my daughter, and have noticed that there is a rattle in the rear of the car. It seems to be more middle rahter than on either side but i could be wrong. Through it was just the spare tire loose in the trunk, so removed that and the jack, trunk is now empty and it persists. It only rattles when driving, goes away at idle. its a constant rattle doesnt increase or decrease with speeds. Any ideas?

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon SXT and it's a 5 speed and something on the right wheel is vibrating bad! I have taken the wheel off and everything and i don't see anything loose or anything and i have been told that it could be the cv joint or the wheel bearing. Any ideas on what it could be? I'm trying to sell my car but i have to fix this first.

I have a 2005 Chevy Avalanche with 130,000 miles. When accelerating I hear a clicking/popping noise that seems to come from the rear of the vehicle. It don't hear it at all times but typically upon takeoff. My fear is the wheel bearings could be going bad. However, I would think if the wheel bearings were the issue it would be heard at all times Any ideas?


There is a good chance that it's going to be your U joints from the drive shaft. The OEM don't have grease fittings for you to grease and will son dry out and then will commonly give you the noise you described upon acceleration on low speeds. At the ... 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I have a '02 honda accord that has a right rear clunking noise. I recently had a wheel bearing replaced and the dealership said the clunking could be the rear sway bar links. The rear struts are both good and i don't see anything broken or loose underneath. I only really hear the noise when i am going slow, say under 35 mph, and i go over a pothole or small bumps. Any idea what it is or what i could look for to be broken? Thanks for your time, Jeff.


That sounds like a stabilizer link or an upper ball joint. ... 2004 Honda Accord

There is a knocking sound and grinding sound coming from underneath my car. I know the grinding is my breaks. But When i hit the brakes it starts to knock and feel like a loose banging. I also have a sound coming from the front i think, could be back, underneath that is a loud obnoxious sound that sounds kind of knocky/screechy. I'm not sure what it is. My brother suggested ball bearings. Is he right? The noise is worst at a slow speed and right before i come to a complete stop.


By the sounds of your brakes, you will need to replace rotors too. Dont let someone "turn" them (machine them) it weakens the rotor and with the amount of heat generated by braking its not a good idea. ... 1995 Saturn Sc

Vibration in stearing and gets louder the faster I go. Checked tie rods and bearings for being loose but they were tight, What could it be?


Check your tires for balance or out of round. if the vibration happens when you brake, then check your discs for run-out. if your steering rack has play and the front end is not properly adjusted it rattles like crazy. visit a local Goodyear or fires ... 1998 Chrysler Sebring

My 2003 Sedona 2.9 diesel has a terrible rattling sound from the driver side of the engine. It does not get slower or faster when you accelerate and sometimes stops all together. You do not notice it once the engine goes over 2000 rpm as I think the vibratin stops it. i have had it in the garage for a day and they cant figure it out. it only started once I had the CAM belt changed any ideas ?


Sounds like maybe the valves are tapping the piston,i would have that job rechecked before damage is done,that belt needs to be lined up correctly. if it started after the cam belt then i would take it back and let them take another look or take it s ... 2003 Kia Sedona

Our 2005 ford escape has grinding brakes, all the pads were new last fall. when you really bear down on them they are not nearly as effective as they should be. sounds like this is a common problem with this suv. is there a solution? i'v read other stories where the breaks and rotors were changed and it doesnt solve the problem. i was thinking it could be the calipers? but i dont want to spend the money and time on them if thats not the answer. any ideas?


If,and I say if,your rotors are fairly smooth,meaning not many ridges on them, and the new pads were OEM specific to your vehicle,not cheap ones,you should have no problems 6 months later.\015\012That said,assuming your rotors were properly mac ... 2005 Ford Escape

I had a small fire caused by what I think is a loose ground wire that was not attached to my amp anymore. It burnt the driver side of the back seat and i assume any wiring in that area. The car will not start and i do not hear the fuel pump turning on. I am about to gut the interior of the car to survey the extent of the damage. Any ideas of what wiring harnesses or wires that would be running from inside the care to the trunk in that area that would cause the fuel pump issue? Could it be that t


Amps draw a lot of current so it should have been fused to avoid this problem, but since it happened, chances are the fire damaged the harness and burned through wires. When you take it apart you will see the area of damage. and you will have to rep ... 1993 Chevrolet Beretta

The bottons for my rear end window and tail gate stopped working. When I shut the gate I heard a clank and now I cannot get the bottom or the top window to open. I cannot get the panel off to look at it either. Any ideas? I think the rods that unlock the door must have came loose. The dash release button has not worked for sometime but I could still push the button on the back end or even use a key but now I cannot do that. When I push the button now, all I hear is a short bzzz

Heavy vibration at 25 MPH gets worse if i go faster, on acceleration and deceleration. Also when I put it in reverse it makes a clanking noise as if maybe a u-joint is worn but is there any other possible probs that this could be ? I dont know anything about center bearings and the first thing that I did was to change out the gear oil in the dif's and the old stuff looked clean. I would like to go into this with as much info as possible so if you have some ideas Im ready

Needed to replace both CV joints on a 95 Camry. Passenger side would not come loose. The CV joint comes all in one piece, although my step Dad seemed to think that it could have been pressed into the engine mount brace that the bearing and race are set in. I removed the snap ring and also the bolt that is supposed to release the whole shaft and it wouldn't budge. Is there an easy fix and answer to this problem?
