2001 Chevrolet Malibu 125,000 miles Recently replaced my air filter with a high flow K&N filter. Ran great for 3k miles, now car stutters when idling and has a hard time accelerating. Ive been told its the air fuel sensor. Could that be it? Also I hear a scraping sound and feel it when driving. It sounds like it could be my brake calipers. It stops at higher speeds. I checked under the car and in the wheel wells and there is nothing hanging down to make the sound. Could i have broken a caliper?
I have a 2001 chevy malibu, not that i can solve your problem, but i did experience your same problem (scraping noise).I did need a caliper, but. at that time i also had to replace my rotors and break pads.Everything was related, wheel ba ... 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
Air conditioning repair including all new parts in July 2009. ( $ 2400.00) There is an intermittant, no predictable pattern, of the sound of rushing air under the dash some what like air rushing out of a valve stem. Last for just 3 or 4 seconds. Repair shop says it is the sound of the expansion valve and is nothing to be concerned about. I can't believe the explanation. I've never owned a car that made such a sound and they have all been air conditioned. What is happening to make this sound. W
For $2400 I wouldn't want the sound under my dash. They probably had to pull the dash to put the evaporator in. They are probably speculating about the noise. It may be a vacuum actuated door that they had to take out to make the repair. You coul ... 2004 Honda Accord

Error Code P1223 Tra-for Air Leak age has come up. Just had a 10,000 km oil change and radiator top up.

Where is pcv valve on 2006 audi a4 2.0T?? My car started making a whiste noise when I started the car the other day and it sounded like the fan belt. But today it didn't do it at start up but when I got home it was noticed that it was whistling in idle and continued for several seconds after the engine was turned off. It almost sounded like it got lounder then shut off like a balloon you let the air out of and it kind of peaks then stops. I bought this car used, it has 70K and it's had a lot of

Trouble starting when i run the air conditioner or defroster or just the fan, and then turn off the car and then go to start it again after shopping etc the car makes the start sound then it stops for 3-4 seconds then it starts and as the day wears on depending on how many times i stop and start it gets worse. If I leave the air in the on postiion the car has a tough time starting. I have been thru 3 batteries in less than 3 years. I think somehow the cooling system draws abnormally from the bat

Brakes go to the floor and have an air sucking sound when you press the pedal. Replaced the master cylinder, new cap and vacuum valve on the booster. Still nothing but it sounds like sucking air in the inside of the car when you hit the brakes. Is there a rubber boot that perhaps makes an air-tight seal that would cause this?
You have a leak in the power booster diaphragm...the booster needs to be replaced. It's not a high failure item and can usually be located in most scrapyards. ... 1991 Ford Mustang

I had oil leaking out the rear main seal of my 2000 Mazda Protege. I changed the PCV valve and poured a bottle of Bar's Leaks Rear Main Seal Repair into the crankcase. Now the car is making a chirping sound, and when I turn it off it makes a sound like air is being let out of a balloon. No noticeable difference in performance, and idle is relatively smooth. Any ideas what this might be?

When I make turns tothe left, several things happen. First there is a noticeable drop in the pressure of the air coming out of my air vents(this is while my AC is running), and then there is an odd noise. It is a hissy kind of a squeal, and the sound of running water. Accompanying the noise, which originates in the passenger dashboard area, there is fluid leaking onto the floorboards on the passenger side of the car. One of my coworkers who usd to work on cars said it might be my heater core.
1st you need to identify the fluid in the floor board, is it antifreeze, water, oil?? 2nd is the leak there without turning the steering wheel? (more than likely). If the fluid is antifreeze, then yes it could be your heater core, the entire dash wil ... 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

I have a 97 bmw 328is and just had the starter replaced. as i drive away from the shop i notice something just aint right with my car. my car is loud now it sounds as if there is no air filter in it and i can feel a knocking coming from under the car and the car is kinda shakey now and to top it off its not a smooth ride like it normally is. what could they have done to my car that is making it like this.
To install the starter, they had to remove the air filter and inlet tube up to the throttle body, and the intake manifold. One of the air tubes may have cracked in two when they were re-assembling it, or they might have forgotten to tighten somethin ... 1997 BMW 328

What service do i need to do on my air conditioner system, i'm starting to hear a clicking or knoking sound when i turn my AC on that last untill the car warms up. i was told by someone that this is normal, but i never used to hear it until just recently, but that sound showed up with what sounds like a squeal from the serpentine belt adding belt conditioner ( i know that is a big no no) actually makes the squeal worse for a while. Please help, i don't know if the 2 sounds are related or not.

My 2004 PT Cruiser 4 cylinder has 117K on it. When I come to a complete stop and wheels stop turning the car's rpm's dip so low that the car sounds like its about to clonk out. About 3 out of 5 times the car idles that low it stalls out completely. I just had the air intake sensors cleaned along with all new spark plugs put it. It seems to make no difference if the ac is on or not. When the car is in nuetral whe can only rev it to 4 rpm's. I am not sure if that is signifigant or not. What
You said you just had the spark plugs replaced, could be that a spark plug wire was connected in the wrong spot, I would check that first, also does the car run smoothly going down the road? clogged fuel filter perhaps. Check engine light on? could a ... 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I think my timing belt just went out, the car just stopped moving, but was still running. Does this sound like the timing belt? 150,000 miles on the car, it has been making a high pitched windeing noise previous to this. Also could this be the transmission, the car will not move forward at all.
I don't think it's your timing belt...if it was, your car wouldn't run at all. The timing belt allows the spark plugs to fire at the correct time. So it's sounding like your tranny is either low on fluid or giving out. Pull the transmission dipstick ... 1996 Toyota Corolla
When I turn my defrost or air on, my car makes an awful noise and the motor jumps and shakes around. I also hear a very loud almost whistle/screech sound. When I turn the defrost off everything appears to run as normal and the motor quits shaking around. When the defrost is off I do here a faint sound coming from the passengers side of the vehicle that sounds like something is spinning and rubbing against something else as is spins. Also, If I only run the fan, things appear to run normal.

2002 volvo S80. Car was making a wailing sound and was sucking air in through oil filler cap and dip stick so hard it was tough to get the cap off. After checking on line replaced the PCV box / oil seprator /flame retarder with OEM replacement Volvo part. Essentially to no avail. Only happens after the car is warm and the idle of the car fluctuates betwen 800 and 2000 rpm. Any suggestions
