Tps on nissan quest makes loud noise when accelerates


As I look at your letter, which is very good, I might add, here are the few things that occurred to me.
The "loud squealing" should be a belt.
You have one or several belts, and if they get loose, or are worn out ( that includes the belt rubber getting old and hard) they will squeal like that.
However, the squealing also may be coming from one of the pulleys the drive belt or belts are attempting to turn.
If you have a bad bearing in one of the pulleys, you can get that loud sound like " a train".
If you are really careful, a "mechanic's stethoscope" might help you.
That is to take a really long screwdriver, and put the tip on each of the pumps or base of each pulley, and the handle end to your ear, and you can hear the bad bearing "scream" with the engine running.
Be blessed.

Loud squeaking.


To me, I think I am hearing a dry bearing.
However, an old worn out belt can make the same sound!
You could take off the belt and try spinning the pulleys to hear which is noisy, or you could use a mechanic's stethoscope to find out.
A mechanic's stethoscope is a really long screwdriver or metal rod about 2 or 3 feet long that they put on different parts (put the handle end to your ear) to hear the noise each part is making.
If your belt is good, try the alternator bearings.
There is also an idler pulley or maybe 2 that could be noisy.
Be blessed.

My 2009 auris has a loud noise from the front end and flashing check battery and check engine


You need a scan tool hooked up and the fault codes read that are recorded when these warning lights came on. That is the starting point to understand what has failed here.

Hissing noise under dash of Cummings diesel


Hi Shelly, Your explanation is a little short on detail. I suggest that you take a length of plastic tubing and while the engine is running, and the hissing sound is evident, place one side of the tube to your ear move the other end to the different units fitted under the dash until the noise is loudest. Once you've done that you can identify where the defective joint or unit is. Regards John

It make a hissing sound and then it shuts off


open the hood up and look for a missing vacuum port plug on the engine intake manifold, sounds like the case here, that would cause a really loud hissing noise.
