There are 2 possibilities causing your problem. 1. Fuel pump. On some cars it is possible to hear the fuel pump when they are mounted in the rear. They are the electric impulse type, and only operate on demad.

2. automotaic load leveling suspension. The car will automotically adjust to the increase or decease of load thru its shocks.

Could be something as simple as a dirty fuel filter.
Get a can of quick start at the store and have someone start it up, when it wants to die squirt a shot into the intake ... if it runs again for a bit you have a fuel delivery issue. Check the fuel pressure to see if the pump is functioning properly.

My car cuts off when I accelerate and it's noise

wow, no year, now that makes this hard.

find noise first. noise is like a warning, bad things to come.!

never ever, ignore noise. or injury or $$$$ parts break.

find the noise, if you cant (i cant hear it) then get someone who can

all ASE certified auto technicians can. get one in the loop.

cuts off can be 50 things wrong, i have the list. but is of no help.

in pure physics it\'s: (and a simple tests for each , do ask....)

Cuts off, I\'ll assume that its stalling> not bogging , not misfiring?

STALLS (engine dies) and my right foot cant save it???? key question.

never doing that 60,000 mile interval tuneup? really?

1: lost 12vdc power to EFI systems. (fuel and spark magic)

2: lost compression. on 1 or more cylinder or all are way below 150psi.

3: weak or bad spark. (tune up)

4: bad fueling (weak or too much)

5: EGR STICKING, (Its, checked and cleaned at the 60k)

6: ISC sticking, closed as you shift or stop car. stalls.

really #5 and 6 are #4 but are common fails to all gas engines.

do explain "cuts off", fully, do find the noise using your stereoscopic

hearing gift from our creator. use it to find LOCATION.

but do realize that doing so, is risky, (in harms way)

i use an electronic stethoscope ($50) to find all sources of noise.

(99%) with zero risk.

Most good FSM cover finding noise. but is limited. (brief)

here is one page that shows ways and means.

here is the free fsm

here is a noise page.

makes noise only moving, is the most risky.

try to make this noise, parked, by racing the engine,

use 2 persons, for max safety.

no loose clothing, no hats, no ties, no long sleeves.

loose clothing can catch an pull you in to harms way...... !!!!!

Turn key all light come on as a normal start. but when key is turned nothing happens. no noise nothing.. keep trying and eventully starts.Sometimes 3 or 4 times.. Sometimes 10 min. later. it can be days...

You didnt list the type of car this is, the most common thing that causes this is the starter, i just had a saturn, the customer had the same problem we told her it may be the starter but cant be 100% sure until it actted up, she didnt want to replace it unless we were sure, so we kept and drove the car around for 5 days and finally the last day it didnt start and it was the starter , same problem turn key and nothing no noise and no start, i would have the starter replaced and go from there, its a mater of time before the car just wont start,hope this is helpful.

I am sure it is the water pump, the water is leaking from the pump and running down the hose. The pumps on these engines seem to last around 60-70,000 miles.

Wind whistle noise

To determine what's making the whistle, try putting some tape over anything that might be causing it. I'd tape over any trim or moldings to try and find out where its coming from. You might try a wide roll of tape over the window edges, and trim points, if the whistle stops, take off a section at a time and recheck until it appears again, and you know what's causing it. Try to keep the tape flat, or you might create some new whistles! Let me know how you do. countrycurt0

1999 buick century limited

if your caar is a v-6 or 6 cylinder motor you might have a injector shorting when hot this is very coming on those cars and very very hard to find from mechanics i'm a ase certified tecnichian and had found this as coming problem on this cars
you can ask to a mechanic to check the resistance on the injectors or when it happens again unplug one by one and see if car runs again if it does then replace all the injectors
because shops will keep trowing parts and labor trying to guess
