2004 Kia Optima idles rough when AC on; idles fine when AC off -- what is the problem?


Putting on the AC causes power to be taken from the engine, and that is quite usual (unless it's taking excessive power but if there are no noises and it's working ok that's unlikely).
That will slow down the engine (similar to switching on your heated rear window whilst idling)
What you are seeing is the idle is probably a bit slow, and it's too slow with AC on. Have a diagnostic run to check idle speed and mixture at low revs.

1995 GMC SONOMA makes a loud sqeaking noise when i take off in the first to third gear, after third gear it stops, but when i get to a stop sighn it starts all back over, loud noise.


This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

I was driving 2003 suburban I had my a/c going when i shut off the engine i heard a strange whistling noise now my engine sqeaks, could it be from the belts?


might be, you will have to start vehicle lift hood and watch your belts, if they are jumping then they are loos, a pulley maybe going out,also. look at all the pulleys if one is wobbling then it needs replaced. Hope this helped Tim

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant ES 4 cylinder and have a check engine light message on i had the code read at auto zone and they told me the third cylinder is misfiring and when it idles it jumps around...


Misfire means you need spark plugs replaced. Or spark plug coils.

That's why the whole car starts shaking because its running basically on 3 cylinders and not 4 as supposed. There is no gas compression on the 3rd cylinder because once again the spark plug is "misfiring"

There also might be even a bigger problem which could be the distributor cap where the coils are connecting outside the engine.
once you fix the problem the check engine will turn off immediately

hope that helps.

My 1991 honda accord makes a sqeaking sound when I make turns. It sounds like its coming from the right, front axle. It also shakes a lot while driving.


Assuming you don't have a problem at idle, if it shakes a lot when driving, then you may consider to replace the engine mounts. They are rubber blocks mounting from the engine to the car frame. They are not expensive. The squeaking noise when you make a turn can be cure by changing the power steering fluid, and flush out the old one. You will be amazed to see how muddy the old one is. Cheers.

I think my power steering pump has seized, the pulley does not rotate. Can i do anything to rectify the problem myself......there is a sqeaking noise when i turn the ignition on and have to turn off again...


Make sure the engine is cold

Take the belt off (if it not already off already)

Turn it in both directions.

Power steering AND/OR power steering rack can fail.

I will check for leaks on the rack first.

A bad/failing rack can dislodge metal partials.

The pump circulate these metals and jam the pump.

Please do not rule out the rack.

When you change the pump....make sure you blow out the rack and check for metal partials.
