Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
When the car is running, generally above idling speed, there is a mysterious rubbing sound. We think it may be the AC fan rubbing, but the weird part is that the sound goes away as soon as the brake is engaged. One theory is a spedometer cable could be in the way, but an expert opinion would be much appreciated.
The next time it does this, locate heater blower motor and either give it a tap or grab a hold of it and see if it changes sound or goes away altogether. it could be squerl cage on heater fan maybe rubbing on heater box, or heater motor could be on its way out. if nothing happens when you do this at least you can elimenate that. it going away when you apply the break could just be happenstance, as heater motors start with little noise that last short time and progressely get worse over time. it also could be speedo cable, the cable itself runs inside a flexable tube, witch runs from speedo head to transmission and there is lubercant inside this tube and they can go bad, unless needle on speedo jumps around i dought its that. also i'am no expert, i just went to the school of hard knocks. hope something here will help. OLD SCHOOL.
