Strange noise I started my 1998 surburban this morning and heard a strange noise coming from the engine. Sounds like a fan squeeling and changes frequency as I move the steering wheel. Surb has 150K miles and temp outside was below 30F. Any ideas?

Most likely the power steering system is a little low on fluid so it's pulling a little air when it's that cold. Check and see if that is the case and top the system up, should take care of the problem. Good luck

I have a 2001 Sonata. I have a squeeling pulley.


It sounds like you have a worn or streched belt making the sqeeling noise. Whenever you turn on a
device in the car that draws a fair amount of voltage
ie. a/c or headlights it will cause increased drag on
the alternator and if you have a loose/worn or glazed
belt, it can slip around the pully making the squeel.
To adjust the alt-a/c belt loosen the mounting bolts
on the tensioner, then use the adjuster bolt behind
the tensioner pully to loosen and tighten the belt.
Be sure to check the belt for cracks bald spots etc.
While the belt is loose spin the pullys to make sure
they all spin freely. Also I would replace the belt just
to be sure. Hope this helps

Fan Blower Makes noise


Sounds like the fan needs to be replaced. But first, to check for obstructions, remove the carpet liner from the underside of the dash on the passenger side and you'll see the blower motor under the dash held in with three screws. If there's something obvious blocking it, remove it and reinstall the fan. If there's nothing blocking it, then you'll probably need to replace the fan. Any auto parts store, Rockauto.com or E-Bay will have the correct fan for your Grand Prix.

Have a strange humming noise that can be heard


Hi:
Often "humming" noises like what you are experiencing are caused by a failing bearing somewhere. Some usual suspects are wheel bearings, alternator bearings, and sometimes even your waterpump, but usually it starts leaking too. To start narrowing down what it is, have someone ride with you to see if the noise is coming from left side or right side, or engine area, then see if it happens when the car is not moving, or just when the drive wheels are pulling the car? This way , hopefully you can pin point the culprit!

Engine makes a rapping noise at idle and under throttle.


The rapping noise makes me think that it might be a broken belt or even the lifters. It could be even your fan. Check the blades to se if they are bent or broken.

Valve/tappets??


Sometimes valve springs can break for no reason.
You have to hear which side of the engine it is coming from.
Is coming from top, middle of engine?
