Might be, you will have to start vehicle lift hood and watch your belts, if they are jumping then they are loos, a pulley maybe going out,also. look at all the pulleys if one is wobbling then it needs replaced. Hope this helped Tim

I have a 2002 Hyundai XG350l and last night my check engine light came on and has been very shaky ever since. I added more engine oil since it was really low but that didn't seem to fix the problem. This morning I tried turning my car on and even though it did turn on, while sitting in park my car was shaking and I heard a squeeling noise. Just two months ago I spent over $900 to get a new alternator, serpentine belt, and battery. Any suggestions as to what could be wrong with my car this time?


You might just want to go down to your local autozone and let them do a code check on your car and tell you exactlly why the check engine light is on, it is free and will cost you less in the long run considering that it could be a number of diffrent ... 2006 Hyundai XG350

All my anti freeze coolant leaked out of my 1992 honda accord. First, I heard a strange noise coming from the engine and then all the coolant drained out completely. So I parked it immediately. What could be the problem?


Where did the coolant come from? hose, water pump, core or engine block. there are so many places to leak it from.... ... 2004 Cadillac CTS

The Service Engine Soon light came on. Could this be something serious or just a reminder that I just hit 80,000 miles and I should take it in. I had the oil changed and fluid levels checked and belts and hoses inspected in Feb. I am not using or leaking oil. The vehicle isn't making any strange noises or blowing smoke. The plugs have been replaced along with the intake manifold gasket. This is a 2003 Chevy Venture van.

Squelling belt I thought the belt was slipping, but that is not the case. I was told it was probably the upper idler pulley, but I am not so sure. I cranked the car while it was cold and applied belt dressing with no success. Once the engine heated up to the point when the thermostat opened to allow water to pump the noise stopped. I let the car run for a few minutes and restarted a couple of times and there was no more noise. It appears to only make the noise while the engine is cold. Could thi


Yes, it could be.\015\012The fact that it quiets might mean that the internal seals are leaky allowing water to enter bearing surfaces that dry, then squeal.\015\012\015\012Look for any traces of the water pump starting to drool; th ... 2001 BMW 325

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L. There is a noise coming from the main drive belt, but the belt appears to be in good condition (no cracks, etc.) Good tension on the belt. The noise only happens when the van is first started (engine is cool), but then stops once the engine is heated. The engine idle is also inconsistent. Could these be related?

2005 Sprinter with 140,000 mile has a whining noise coming from the surpitine belt. My tech replaced the tentioner and idler pullys, and fan clutch and belt, noise is still there. The noise comes and go's its not all the time. If you remove the belt the noise its gone. It is coming from the belt. Could the alternator be bad. Or other ideas. Know engine lights are on. The noise seems to come from the alternator side.


If you have a whining noise the first thing I woud check is the alternator. If that is good then I would then check the water pump. I have seen this before but it is hard to point the problem without having the car in front of me.\015\012 ... Dodge Sprinter

Engine Sqeak I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 (w/ ac) and started to hear a squeaking noise coming from the engine, so i sprayed belt conditioner on my serpentine belt and it made the squeaking noise worse so i took the belt off and turned all the pulleys. All of them turned fine except the camshaft pulley. Is this normal? and if not whats wrong with it and what do i need to do to fix it?


A squeaking belt can be caused by wrong tension [belt slips] if belt looks polished then thats whats happenedif it has any cracks or polish marks replace it! ... 2000 Jeep Cherokee

Heard a belt break on my 1998 Hyundai Accent, but the engine didn't stop. What could it be?


You have torn an alternator, an air conditioning or power steering belt if equipped. check that the air conditioning works and gets cold if it used to and the power steering is not heavy if the car had it. if you broke an alternator belt your dash wo ... Hyundai Motor 1998 Accent

Whistling noise There is a low, periodic whistling noise that can be heard inside the passenger compartment. Sounds like a small bird making a single whistle every 5 minutes or so. It has been going on for about one month. The car has 47,000 miles and had it's normal maintenace check at 45,000 miles. There was no noise at that time. Seems like a minor thing but there is no indication of what this might be in the owners manual that I could find.

Hi, can someone pls help ?? KIA Lantra 2000 SW 2.0Lt (Please note: This is Australian model) Recently had all belts replaced inc Internal timing belt. Now 2 weeks after this the engine is making ticking noise, I suspect that the noise is coming from the valves. Could this relate to the belts replacement ?? loose or too tight belt, or even misaligned belts?? Thanks in advance, Salih


First of all it can be misaligned,or have miss one teeth of the belt if so the engine will never start,you are right the ticking noise came mainly from the valve,how long have you have adjusted the valve clearance ?I think you must check the valve ad ... 2000 Kia Amanti

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.


Yoy could have a bad t belt tensioner or bad t belt pulley. get this looked into right away. you have what is known as an inteference engine. if you lose that belt for any reason, it WILL drop a valve, and your're looking at a lot of money for an job ... Mitsubishi Galant

Engine Noise my dad has a 2002 grand caravan and it has under 130,000kms and it ran great until just recently there is noise comng from the engine when he drves around and when he took it to Dodge they said he needs a new engine which will cost about $3000 - $4000 + labour. I heard that some mechanic places will tell you a whole bunch of things are wrong but really arent. Does anyone know what the problem could be? engine or transmission or both


If you have a knocking noise, then you need a motor. If you have a ticking noise, could be a bad lifter, or an exhaust leak. If the oil hasn't been changed regularly, every 3000 miles, you probably have an engine issue. ... 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan

My 2006 Tarus sounds like the belt is rubbing or ideler pulley going out. I took the belt OFF and still hear the noise from the engine. It sounds like a belt noise but apparently isn't the belt. Do you have any ideas what it could be? Thank you very much

I got a 2005 Chevy Cavalier, after forgetting to change my oil and it running low, I started to get a knocking noise in the top part of my engine. We checked the lifters, they were fine, what else could it be? We know it's not a rod knocking, its too inconsistent, and not loud enough. I've heard that fuel injectors could make the same noise as bad lifters. Could that be a possibility? I just need some ideas of what to check.


Top of the engine could be a piston wrist pin, or a broken or stuck ring-try adding some Marvel Mystery oil in the crank case, if that does not work, go with a heavier oil when doing an oil change-are you certain it is not a rod knock, because that i ... Chevrolet Cavalier

My mothers 1993 daihatsu charade 3 cyl has a ballrace bearing noise in the engine when reving. the best discription of the noise could be a bad water pump bearing. ( it isnt that i have disconnected the belt to check) i thought this could be a ballrace bearing on the balance shaft. would this be the likely cause of the noise? also are parts like this still available and where can i get them in Perth WA? Thank you


Restrain from driving till checked. is most likely timing belt component. or could be water pump. But also could be as simple as a accesory belt pulley or alternator bearing. Remove accesory belts and check if noise still present ... Daihatsu Charade

On a cold start, I get a loud rattle from engine. Fan noise is also present. The noises eventually disappear. I never heard these noises before. See my YouTube video http://ow.ly/15hCb The check engine light also came on today. I just had major coolant leak fixed, coolant thermostat replaced, and to have the original coolant flushed and replaced. I'm taking it back to the AAA Car Care Center tomorrow morning. I was just curious what answer I could find here.


What you're hearing is the secondary aux air pump helping to heat up your oxygen sensor to operating temps faster on a cold day. This happens during start up and shuts off when the engine lowers it's engine speed to idle speed. Were you having a cool ... 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

1996 dodge caravan backup lights do not work...have checked the fuse and it is fine. How do I get at the lights to check the bulbs? Also there is an awful noise from the engine when started up. The noise goes away after about 15 mins of driving. Mechanic said belt was fine but he never heard the noise. Tried rubbing soap and wd 40 on belt with no results.


The reverse light switch is mounted on the transmission (at the front just above the oil pan) most likely has transmission fluid leaking through it and shorting out the switch -- using soap or wd40 will only solve your noise for a short time - remove ... 1996 Dodge Caravan

A 2001 Yukon 4x4 with a 5.3 liter engine. The A/C belt has shredded three times. The Harmonic Blancer and A/C compressor are in good condition and both turn true. The tensioner has been replaced twice but still bounces and makes a whining noise. I have someone rev the engine while I look to see what the tensioner does, and I can see that it bounces to much and makes a louder noise when you rev the engine. Question: Could I have bough two bad after market tensioners and do I need to buy an OEM te


I have thought about this,and trying to put this in my mind.and say the tensioner should not move and should most deffently not make any noise it should be silent .is this the right part?the main thing here is the allingment im have a go and saying ... 2001 GMC Yukon

A/C Compressor I drove my car from transmission shop home. As I was getting home I heard a rattling noise on passenger side of car under hood. The next day I go out and start car but belt was off. I put belt on (serpentine) hate that stupid belt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and started it. Hear a strange noise, opened hood and saw A/C compressor sitting sideways. A bolt that holds compressor to bracket is broken but don't know where bracket bolts to motor or ******. I need to know where, how many bolts


A basic set of tools and a little patients is all you need. You will need to remove the a/c compressor from the bracket. Once the compressor is out of the way you will see the hidden bolts that hold the bracket in place. \012\012There are several tha ... Cars & Trucks

Pop, burn smell, idling strangly, service light Yesterday I was preparing to enter on to the highway but as I made my start from the stop light I heard a pop come from the engine with a strange smell. I originally thought maybe a fuse but am also concerned that it would be a belt (not sure if the smell was rubber) So I decided to forgo getting on the highway and pulled off to a side street. This is when I noticed that the idling was off. When in park or neutral the engine wants to stay reved up.


I would have the timing checked to make sure its consistant and in time ... 2001 Nissan Maxima

Strange noise I started my 1998 surburban this morning and heard a strange noise coming from the engine. Sounds like a fan squeeling and changes frequency as I move the steering wheel. Surb has 150K miles and temp outside was below 30F. Any ideas?


Most likely the power steering system is a little low on fluid so it's pulling a little air when it's that cold. Check and see if that is the case and top the system up, should take care of the problem. Good luck ... 1998 GMC Suburban
