I have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler. I needed a new muffler and a good tune up. The mechanic replaced the catalytic converter and muffler, including a tune up. The check engine light remained on (steady light) and fan belt continues to make noise. I informed the mechanic less than two days later. His reply was that he also replaced the oxygen censor and that would be the reason why. Less than 2 weeks later my Jeep began to lose battery power and hear very loud knocking coming from the engine.

Infiniti G35 - 2006 Sedan - 37,000 miles. Knocking noise in engine area: Happens only in gear (drive or revese); loudest after engine is warm; took vehicle to dealer twice. First time, changed engine oil with additive. Second time, dealer claims the idle tension pulley system was missing a bolt, which cause the knocking noise. Drove vehicle today and I swear I can hear the faint knocking noise... although not as loud as before. I've read a few threads online about similiar issues. Any though

I own a 2001 galant es 4cyl. automatic and started my car up 2 days ago and noticed a loud knocking noise coming from the engine. I opened the hood and the noise was coming from the area where the timing belt cover is located. I just replaced the timing belt last year and had some problems with the work done and took it back. What could the knocking noise be? The noise is constant when idling and driving and I think it may be getting louder.

I have a 1997 2.5 jeep wrangler.when you first start the engine it runs and sounds fine, then after about 20 seconds it begins to have a knocking sound only at idle. when you press the gas you cant hear the noise but when you let off it comes back. when driving you cant hear the noise unless you stop and idle. if you let off the gas quickly you hear a slight rattling then it begins the knock again at idle.

2001 Dodge Neon Slight Knocking Sound I have a 2001 Dodge Neon ES with 160000 miles on it. Runs great but for some reason there is a slight knocking sound coming from the engine. When I say slight I mean the sound is not loud enough to hear in the cab unless beside something hard like a wall in a drive thru then you hear the echo. Once in the engine compartment you can hear it but if you didnt know it didnt make the sound before you wouldnt notice. My best description of the sound is it sounds

My air conditioning is acting up. When i turn it on I eventually begin to hear a humming type noise that gets louder. When this starts I feel a loss of power from my engine. At times I hear a loud screeching noie coming from one of my belts (along with the humming) and when it gets too loud it sounds like something gives up and I lose my cold air. I have checked the levels and recharged my coolant (R134a), that has not solved the humming, loss of power, screeching and occasional loss of cold

There's a loud squeaky noise coming from the engine when the car starts. It's there when the car is stationary and goes after around 5 seconds. We hear it when the car is stationary at traffic lights too and it goes as the car speeds up. Seems to be coming from the belt area on the left hand side of the car engine as you stand in front of it. Any ideas?


Sounds like this may be a bad drive belt. check belt for cracks and glazing. while belt is removed you may also wish to listen to pulleys while spinning by hand. ... Mitsubishi Lancer

We have a 2010 ford expedition with 10k miles. As my wife was driving she hears a loud knocking noise from the engine and the car won't go above about 20 mph and has a very hard time going up hills. The check engine light also came on at this time. We had it towed to the dealership. They look at the engine and say it shows signs of oil starvation on only 2 of the cylinder heads with one being cracked and all the others are ok and we need a new engine. They wanted to blame it on the oil change
