Everytime i accelerate there is a sound from the engine and it has no pull/power.i

weak engine!!!! and noise... both real...!!!!
can it be made to make noise , PARKED (easy if true)
find a real mechanic that can diagnose noise, many can't.
find one that knows all the tests and has a stethoscope .
there are lots of tests to do. not just guessing.
that lost power is diagnosable too. tell him that.
or find a new mech.
find a real ASE mach. with patch on sleeve.
  1. the drop belts cold test.
  2. pry all objects connected to engine, brackets, and pry the exhaust header pipe. noise stop?

keep in mind the engine shakes normally and can make things
connected rattle and make noise, we look at that first.
then work to harder problems.
i have an electronic stethoscope that i can hear deep problems
in the engine..
are you going to replace the $2500 transmission , on a guess?
so pick that last ,right?
The power loss , can be EFI issues
did you SCAN this PCM? and get any DTC errors?????????
scan it.
if an intake valve sticks it will misfire bad (pretend #2 cyl)
the ECU then throws P0302, misfire #2 , and the HLA makes
a huge racket any pro can hear with stethoscope. at valve cover.

see some here.

id not drive it until its fixed,

Check light appears on dash board and slips gears. Changed transmission oil and filter. The gears started changing normal but now slips gears when you excellerate the engine makes noise but car does not...


You should diagnose the check engine light. You can have this done at a mechanic or alternatively you can rent a scanner from a parts store. What may feel like a slipping transmission can be a misfire.

My 2004 audi s4 makes gronchy noise when i put it in to 2nd gear when cold whats causing it?

If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
  • This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
  • The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
  • Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
  • To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
  • The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
  1. When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
  2. When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....

Hi, I have a 94 Pajero Nj 2.8TD with a 4M40 engine, and when the engine is revving over 2000, be it in gear or out of gear, there is a tap tap scraping noise which increases in speed with the engine. I...

check if it has a timing chain as it indicates that the chain is hitting on the timing cover ( replace it and the guides if it has) If the front of the engine is all metal then it will be a chain
It could be faulty injectors squirting and not atomizing but that noise is a knock and generally go with higher revs

Transmission when in Reverse does not function

Change mechanics, try a specialized guy who only does Volvos.. better than dealer better than some **** shop.
It sounds like the gear sensor but a specialized guy will quickly diagnose... for parts, head to an online scrap yard or ebay, kijijijijijijijijij.
