Answers :

How does this make sense? You are standing in front of your vehicle and hear a noise...and you ask someone very far away what the noise is? Listen carefully and use the sound to locate the source of the noise. If necessary, remove the serpentine belt and turn each pulley till you find one that feels "wrong" either binding or loose. Then, change it. If you are blowing the fan relay, chances are that the fan motor is drawing too much amperage and is binding when it gets hot...that will cause the relay to fail.

I have a 2005 Mini Cooper S and the rear wiper was working fine to-date. One day I turned it on and it stopped about 3/4 of the sweep, chatters slowly to the end and then sweeps back to starting position. Repeats. Not fast enough to keep the window clear. Mini service replaced the rear wiper motor to the tune of $775 and you guessed it, the first rain, doing the SAME thing. I do have the old motor (I asked for it at the last minute). What could be causing it?

Electrical problem My battery is new, my alternator is 2 years old. My car doesn't start sometimes. It won't crank...no clicking noise...lights work, radio windshield wipers too. Wait about 30 minutes then it will start. it is very embarassing at the gas station because I can't move the vehicle for another one to pump gas. Is it the alternator...no check engine light is on. Is it the starter relay? I've replaced door lock relays and window motor and relays. How much is the starter relay?

Added oil and tried to start, just got a clicking noise like when battery is dead. Tried jumping with no luck, with cables attached just got a single click when turning the key.

Won't start I have a 1992 Honda Civic LX. I was driving on the freeway the other night and my car just stopped running. It didn't make any sord of noise either. I tried to start it and it wouldn't start. It still turns over, but the starter sounds strange, like it's winding too fast or something. A friend said it could be timing belt. Another friend said it could be the fuel pump. I don't have a clue myself. What could my problem be?

Rattling noise My 2004 Sierra has a strange rattling noise (sounds almost like a tin can bouncing around). It occurs when I start the vehicle and when I accelerate. When I start it cold, the rattling lasts for a couple minutes. When I start it warm, it practically only does it when it initially turns over. And the noise seems to stop when I get to higher speeds. The check engine light came on when this occurred as well and stays on. I've heard everything from a cadillac converter, heat shield
