Noise running altima 2003

I have a noise when it is running, I put the transition in neutral and turn off the engine with the car moving and the noise continue and it is proportional to the speed, more speed higher is the noise. It is a low frequency noise, I reviewed the tires and they look fine, the sound came from the rear, I would like to know if you see this problem before.
Thank You

Sounds like you may have a wheel bearing issue based on your description. Could also be a backing plate contacting the brake rotor, but that would be a higher sounding "tinny" noise. This should be easy to determine. Jack up the rear of the vehicle and check each wheel while spinning by hand for the noise.

I have a 1994 standered nissan altima... when I turn on the car and rev the engine there's no noise... The minute I put the car in first gear and take off there's a rattling noise that increas


Could be a long list of things.
A mechanic would take a test drive and listen under different conditions.
Causes could include transaxle problems, exhaust rattles, worn motor mounts, even valves in the engine.
The difference in idle and moving is a load on the engine and transaxle and the engine shifting position.

Rattling / grinding sound coming from engine area when vehicle is in gear and car break is applied, but when gear is set into neutral noise stops. Was told the problem was the aircondition compressor....


Just a couple ideas...
Your engine and transmission will shift slightly when in drive, and maybe that movement is allowing it to rub on something. Another issue may be that the noise is actually from the transmission.
Torn motor mounts will allow the drive train to shift or move farther than normal.

1999 Nissan Altima won't turn over. When key is in the run position there is a hum coming from the area where the engine and transaxle meet (seems to be more above the engine than below), and when the key...


Check your starter. It could be that or the starter solenoid, or the ignition relay. Also check to see if the battery cable is connected tight to the starter.

No "connection" between engine & trans?


check your driveshaft from the trans to wheel (both L and R). Possibly it popped out or is disconnected.

2003 Nissan Altima, Air condition makes loud noise when the unit is turn on. It slows down where u cant almost hear it after you turn the fan off.


When you put your A/C on, there is Vacum Motor or Solonoide, that increases RPM of the Engine to compensate the load of an A/C. If the vacum hose is leaking or raptured the RPM of Engine remain low and Engine Shakes. When you put the A/C on and the RPM of Engine Increases, but a little, then your Selonoide is working but not adjusted properly, so adjust it for the proper RPM of the Engine. Put all the loads on, I mean Head Lights and A/C on and then ajust the RPM.

I have an 03 nissan altima engine makes loud clicking noise


1st check the the oil level and the vehicle's oil type.(owners manuel) 5w30-10w30
10w 30 is a thicker oil and could possibly be causing this.(Moves more freely through the engine heats the oil)
