Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Noise from Left side on initial start up when cold

It sounds like a table saw. After the car goes to idle the noise goes away. I took the water pump belt off and the noise is still there. I believe the noise is coming from the transmission area. Any idea?

    My apologies. I am new to the site. I do not ever remember rating the answer. Possibly it was a stray computer stroke. Again, Thank you very much for trying!!! Happy Holidays

Some gm products from this era had a crank pulley separation issue ........noise and improper crank sensor readings are some of the things this can cause so you are going to want to check that
hope this helps........Good luck!

I have a ford 1966 390 fe engine .knock noise ft of engine .sounds like center of engine.has new cam and lifters and new rods and mains at idle pull plug wires does not change noise


Try running it for a short while with the belts off to see if it changes the noise. If the noise goes away ...check water pump, fan clutch, power steering pump, ac ... and so on and so on.

Right side of engine has a noise when cold


It most likely is the air injection pump, The bearings may be going out and that is why it is only doing this when cold

Ticking/Tapping when car starts but goes away???


I had what sounds like the exact same problem. It was an exhaust leak from the left (driver's) side exhaust manifold. This engine has a history of the manifold bolts breaking and causing the exhaust leak. The engine is also used on some Dodge vehicles. It sounds like a tick and I almost mistook it for a bad lifter. I took it to the local Jeep dealer who confirmed the exhaust leak. I replaced the left manifold completely and replaced bolts/gaskets on both sides (left/right) and it fixed the problem. Be careful, as the dealer tried to gouge me on the price. You are looking in the ball park of $600 parts/labor. I got parts for $120 and it took the better part of a work day to do the job.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

Roaring noise when car idleing


Quite possibly the air conditioning compressor clutch bearing. I've seen a couple of these go bad now. Have the belt removed and see if the noise goes away.

Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.
