Check the battery under load at a local parts store. Sounds like a dead cell. Also check the cable connections to the battery for corrosion. The starter could be bad but That would be a last check unless it has been dragging. If the battery and connections are ok the starter solenoid would be the culprit. Sometimes you can free them with a light tap with a wrench or LIGHT tacking hammer. It will still need to be replaced, though. Hope this helps.

2006 Cadillac DTS makes noise when the wheel is turned, noise started after wheel bearings were replaced in the two front wheels


If it's a "squealing" sound - check the power steering fluid. If it's more of a grinding sound - then the wheel bearings were not properly "packed" with grease. Note - the grease needs to forced into the bearings by hand while rotating the bearings. I had a this problem myself when a "mechanic" just smeared some grease around the bearings.

I can hear the diff sound when we shift the gear to drive and reverse. I just changed the diff but still can hear the same sound


find a mech with an electronic stethoscope.
$50 tool/
we can find any noise. source with this
except U-joints. on main drive shafts.

find a pro mech, they all know this.
Id put in new U-joints if , all my electronic hear tests pass/
see that logic?
i check axle ends, and pinion front bearing.
and engine , and tranny front center and rear.
all normal.> then U-joints are bad.

most guys just put them in , to start. can save time.
warning, all tests here are dangerous. that is why use
my remote monitoring stethoscope with zero risk .
person 1 drives, i rind shot gun and with head phones on
i stop and move my microphone clamps
takes about 30min to 1hr to finish a test.
my last catch, was a bad right axle bearing, RR.
i caught it early.
sounds can telegraph, so lots or listen points, prove who is the offender.

My 84 chevy slverado won't start. It was starting fine until someone changed the plugs today and now it wont start


double check the wires and make sure the firing order did not get mixed up. This can cause a no start, the vehicle will sound like it wants to go but just floods instead. Good Luck

I have a 2002 Saab 9-3. A couple of days ago I started hearing a clicking sound coming from the engine area (don't know if its actually the engine, just in that area). At first, only made sound when...


If the 'clicking' sound changes with engine speed you need to check your oil, and pay attention to your temperature guage-it might be a lifter making noise and an oil change would possibly help. If it is a steady clicking noise, it might be a loud fuel injector, possible but not likely.

If you hear a click.Then take a hammer and tap the starter while someone is cranking on the vehicle.If it turns over and starts you have a bad starter.Check all the connections and make sure they are clean and tight.Also if you get it running have the battery and charging system tested.Hope this helps.Good luck.
