I have a 2004 Kia spectra. While in Park the engine makes a loud rumbling noise on the driver side. The car will vibrate and humm while stopped in drive. Neutral seems to keep it from doing this.

What might be experienced by transaxil/transmission bearings wear? Rumbling or vibrations?


Kia is bad with wheel bearings ;.About 80 to 100k they start going bad. You have to check them physically with a dial gauge or know how to inspect them in other manners. They cause a rumbling sound when they start to go bad.

1/4 times I turn on my car there is a loud vibration noise that lasts 10 seconds I have only noticed it when starting a warm engine. Any ideas what this could be?


We need more info, Loran. Is the noise metallic as in sheet metal loose or more like a heavy rumble. Bear in mind the car is 10 years old and you don't give the mileage a heavy knocking could be a worn engine mount allowing the exhaust to contact another part. This maybe worse when hot because the increase in temp softens the mounts a bit. Does it vary with revs or is it part of the initial fire up, ie does it stop when the engine idles smoothly or does the engine not idle smoothly? Is it in need of servicing and the idle is so rough that its causing other things to vibrate.
Have someone start up for you while you have your head under the hood and see what you can to do to assess the noise. If its an auto make sure its in park and the brake is on before they rev up.
Next, look underneath to see if anything is hanging off like the exhaust. It could be as simple as a hanger bracket.
More info reqd here I'm afraid.
Potential worst case is the flywheel is coming loose but I wouldn't expect temperature to change that.
Do some homework and get back to us.

Is it a squeel or a hum / rumble? 1st run your hands around the tyres especially the inside. Check for hi and low spots on the tyres. If the tyre is hi low hi low hi low it makes a shocking sound. if it is a squeel noise have they checked your brakes cause brakes have squeelers to let you know they need changeing

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may need to replace the engine and transmission supports. If they are worn out the engine tends to vibrates.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

THE KIA SPECTRA AUTOMATIC VIBRATES WHEN ENGINE IS ON AND IDDLE


The first thing to do is make sure that your vehicle is not due for basic maintenance. Plugs,wires,air/fuel filters. After that you can check to make sure your engine and transmission mounts are in good shape. You can do this with the help of a friend. Open the hood and have your buddy put the car in gear while holding the brake. Have your pal put the vehicle in neutral and then into reverse without letting go of the brake. Your engine should not move very much. It is normal for the engine to move maybe about a quarter of an inch but not much more. If the engine jumps and starts vibrating when thrown into gear, You more than likely have bad mounts or a bad mount somewhere. These mounts are made of rubber and fairly simple to replace. Visually inspect them to make sure they are not cracked or broken. If you replace the mounts,make sure to remove and replace them one at a time. You don't want your engine falling out of the car!!!! Good luck and I hope this was helpful.

Stopping problem is totally unrelated to alternator. There should be a rubber hose between the engine and the brake booster behind the master cylinder. Make sure that it, as well as any other vacuum hoses are connected. If you can get it running, listen for loud sucking sound from leak.
