Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

Car makes funny noise upon starting on very cold days

The car makes a loud noise when turned on on very cold mornings. The noise seems to be related to something turning because the noise seems louder every 2-3 seconds. Once the car starts to drive, it still sounds off for a few minutes, but it eventually goes away. It doesn't make the louder noise when driving.

Also, I'm not sure if this is related, but sometimes the wheel seems harder to turn when I first try to pull out in the morning. Could this just be low power steering fluid?

    It was about 40 degrees for the high temp today and the steering on my 1998 plymouth breeze locked up completely and I also have been experiencing the same problems exactly as the previous post. thought it may be the power steering pump but I dunno. I've always been a Lincoln or Chevy kinda gal.

Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

There is a noise coming from the right-front wheel area during a left turn. It almost sounds like a tire-rub on the inner wheel-well cover, but it also makes this same noise when stationary while turning...


I had this same problem and the dealer could not reproduce the noise when I would take it in to get looked at. (during the day when the temperature was warm) So I decided to leave it over night and they test drove it in the morning when the temperature was cold and they heard the noise. It ended up bing the steering rack.

Hi! I have a 2006 Saturn Vue 4 cylinder with 91,000 miles. I always keep my AC on max. The other day I turned the temp warmer. Well the next morning the AC stopped blowing cold air. I noticed before...


The car will idle funny due to the air-conditioner on ,when on it takes power from the motor about 10-20hp depennding,and with the air on all the time its robbing you of fuel mileage.put the temp back to cold and use norm-air max should be used to get real cold and then switch to norm.if you want warm air,then put on vent and stop wasting fuel,with a.c on when you have it on the red area.

2006 Dodge Gr. Caravan. Loud humming noise upon


Misalignment of the belt, incorrect belt, worn or loose tensioner, Too tight of an adjustment (many service centers do this on purpose so when the belt breaks in it becomes properly adjusted, I do not believe in this philosophy), The belt is actually one long belt called a serpentine belt.....

1993 Nissan Altima will crank but won't start - sometimes - altitude issues?


The system is not affected by altitude in this way, the thing you need to check is fuel pressure, this may be pump related.

It sounds like the car was ran out of oil.The engine bearings and crankshaft journal are probably scarred.The noise you are hearing is more than likely a piston rod slapping around about to break loose from the crankshaft.So,yes the engine is toast...Sorry..Good Luck!!!
