Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 1998 plymouth neon expresso 2.0 DOHC. I had the head gasket replaced and they welded a split in the manifold. The car runs wonderful but at times after driving and you pull up to a stop sign there is a loud whooshing sound that sounds like waves going from the front to the back of the vehicle with a slight vibration. No change in the Rpm's or performance when I take off. It's also a 5 speed manual

SOURCE: A loud sound shortly after starting my car

I'm guessing that you Expedition has been making this noise probably since you've had it? Even if it hasn't, I think I can bring you some comfort. If you could pinpoint where the noise was coming from under the hood, would you say that it's somewhere over on the passenger side? My dad owns a 1998 Ford Eddie Bauer Expedition, and we noticed a loud noise with the same habits as what you're describing. Come to find out, there is an air compressor under the hood, I can't remember exactly what it's for, but the sound that I believe you're hearing is the compressor filling up with air and then shutting off once the proper amount of pressure is reached. You might try popping the hood to try to locate the exact place that it's coming from, but I can tell you that it's probably a 99% chance that when you find your noise, you'll find the compressor I'm referring to. Hope this proves to solve your issue and helps to ease your worries. Have a wonderful evening!

SOURCE: 1997 neon expresso 2 dr., 5spd, 2.0L DOHC, engine won't start

Yup, I'd have to agree if all those things check out. Funny I thought there must have been more to the question, when all it asked about was switch noise & codes. Anyway, sounds like you've checked everything, right down to power at solenoid terminal when key cycled to start, so That would be my next step.

SOURCE: 1999 plymouth Breeze 2.4 L wah wah sound from rear

I would have the rear wheel bearings checked asap and rear brakes as well. Sounds like a very bad wheel bearing but also makes me wonder why the shop that did the tires and alignment for you didnt find this for you. After a alignment the car should be driven. So take it somewhere else and have the wheel bearings checked asap but be very carefull driving.

SOURCE: F150 2003 5.4L Vibration throughout truck with acceleration

When you say "throughout" that would indicate that it is coming from the rear of the truck..

There could be a number things causing this..

It could be a bad tire or a broken belt on a tire..
A test for this is - roll along at 3 miles per hour.. If you feel a wobble - that is probably a broken belt in a tire..
Or maybe even a bent axle..

It could be a bad universal in the drive shaft..

It could be a broken shock/strut or mount or both..

Best of luck !

a sealer is a stop gap measure used to sell the vehicle
stop gap measures work out to more expensive than a gasket job if you have to keep the car as to the best one to use , if you read forums on sealers you will see that it all comes down to price and preference
talk with your mechanic

I just resently replaced a brken timing belt on my 96 neon

Neons used a DOHC interference type engine. I hate to tell you this, but the valves are bent, and your entire valve train (possibly your cylinder head) needs to be repaired or replaced all together.

1998 Dodge Neon engine died when valves started knocking and car will not restart.

Check the engine for compression. Your head gasket may be shot. I have a 97 that had a similar problem, and we did the head gasket, car runs fine now. Prior to doing the gasket mine wouldn't start at all.

Do a compression test.

Running hard

You may need a new serpentine belt tensioner. That's the part that keeps the belts tight. If it's weak, it may be allowing the belt to slip. When you say the car runs "hard" what exactly do you mean? That the RPMs dip down when you turn on the AC? If so, that's normal since the AC compressor loads the engine pretty heavily. If you mean something else by it, please repost and clarify what you're seeing/hearing so we can take it from there.
