Lost power, noise in engine bay, sounds like metal grinding

Just purchased last week. Was working ok till yesterday - engine light came on... while driving and I lost power. I don't think the turbo is working. Now there is a grinding noise coming from the left side of the engine just below the radiator that sits on the top of the engine. Is this the turbo unit ? Noise gets louder when I try to go faster.

Most likely you have power assist. Either the pack and pinion died, or you lost power and /or ground to it.

A kind of grinding sound when turning and some leaking oil


Power steering grinding noise can be ok, or it could be pump wear. The only way to tell is if the power steering oil looks sort of metalic, from tiny bits of metal in it.

And by the way, power steering oil is red, so easy to distinguish from engine oil. But a few leaks are ok as long as you can keep the level up.

As long as you keep the fluids up, you can wait until it gets worse. A bad pump will get very noisy, and there is no reason to change it before then. The metal won't hurt anything.

Lost all power/electrical when went to restart car, battery fine


I had an old Accord which occasionally wouldn't crank or start, took out the Main Electrics Relay situated up under the dash near the steering wheel, resoldered all the solder joints on it.....car started like a rocketship on steroids. Seems the solder joints "evaporate" and "dry out", fresh solder conducts full power.

2006 ford escape - abs and 4wd lights on yesterday - off today - brakes checked - ok - right turn makes grinding noise with slight application of brake -


the grinding nose you heard was something rubbing on the rotor, bad brakes, caliper, after market wheels, etc. the pressure of a turn bends something enough to touch, this is produceing metal flake that attached to the magnetic sensor on the abs sending a light on because it couldn't read the tire position as it turned, it may have got blown off, washed off, but when it can read the tire again the light will go off, i would look into the grinding noise on cornering thats the cause of the problem. hope this helps

Engine dies while driving.


the noise you heard in the rear was the electric fuel pump working but it sounds like you have an electrical issue check your wire harness for areas that wires chaffed on metal and cause break in the electric current some known areas are inbetween the radiator and the transmission down towards the tranny pan also check fuse panel might have a loose fuse

Grinding noise about 30 seconds after starting


Sounds like starter isn't disengaging, get that checked pronto, you could be damaging the flywheel (very expensive). Could be any appliance also; a/c compressor, idler pully, alternator, etc. Don't wait.

Starting problem


If the hard grinding noise is a metallic sound only when you start it, sounds like your starter bolts are loose or the starter itself needs replacing. fuel pressure doesnt cause any particular noises like that. If your fuel pressure or pump had problems, your vehicle simply wouldnt start
