COULD BE THE BEARINGS ON ONE OF THE PULLYS ETC, HARD TO SAY WITHOUT HEARING THE NOISE MYSELF. TRY REVING THE ENGINE WHEN CAR IS STOPPED IF YOUR STILL GETTING THE SAME NOISE. THIS MAY SOUND DAFT BUT GET AN OIL FUNNEL AND PUT A PEICE OF GARDEN HOSE ON THE END,PUT THE FUNNEL TO YOUR EAR AND YOU WILL PIN POINT THE NOISE FROM YOUR ENGINE WITH NO PROBLEMS.......CHECK YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS JACK UP CAR AND CHECK FOR EXCESS PLAY

Why does my 2000 Nissan Quest emits humming sound when engine run


Most likely, that is the sound of the FUEL PUMP. If the car is running well, don't worry about it. Try changing your fuel filter to see if that helps (usually does).
If you have trouble with fuel delivery at high speeds or under load, suspect that your fuel pump is about to fail.

My CR-V 97 produces metal grinding sound at the rear part after driving for almost 5 minutes at a speed of 60km/h. When I reduce the speed to 20km/h, the grinding sound stops. When I jacked all the four...


my guess is the wheel bearing. jack the rear tire off the ground and try shacking the tire. if you have any play your bearing could be bad.did you hear a hum from the same wheel. wheel bearings will hum before they start grinding

My 2003 Altima 2.5s makes a humming type (vibration?)sound.


I have a 2003 Nissan Altima making a humming sound towards the front of the motor at idle in Park.

Not sure if alternator or compressor.

Not rattle from timing cover has to be something Nissan already denies.

Where is the thremo relay switch located on a 2003 3.0 audi A4. my problem is the radiator fans won't shut off and have been told this may be the problem


Sounds like your on the right track. The thermal switch closes when the temp reaches a certain temp and this allows power to the fans to draw more cool air into the engine bay. I would start there or you may have a short on that circuit also allowing the power to go to the fans continuously.

Your car sounds like it needs aligned. Any tire shop can realign it. Also have them check to see if your tire are balanced.
