    My 1996 Transam has 135,000 miles and was running smooth. It suddenly began a knocking noise down deep towards the bottom of the motor. It has had routine maintenance like plugs, wires, transmission flush, and oil changes. I was shocked when it started doing this when I was coming home from work and about two blocks from my home. It starts with no problem, but runs with a deep regular knock. I wondered if it might be the flywheel. My mechanic was shocked when I called him. I have not had time to take haul it anywhere yet.

Yes. The Tranny has to be Removed for the Repair. It is right between the Motor and Transmission.

Saturn Ion running loud and rough


Check for other loose heat shields.
The shield you removed would allow more noise to enter the cabin too.

Starter starts rough


Flywheel teeth are worn or missing, or starter gear faulty not fully contacting your flywheel. Inspect flyweel for cracks. A cracked flywheel will more than likely make a knocking sound.

Sometimes when i start my toyota sportivo i get a rattling sound (is this the starter motor not engaging correctly)


If it rattles after it starts, it may be the timing chain tensioner. You will need to get that fixed before the chain busts the housing. It may cause water to get into the oil. You will know it when the oil turns milky. This will cause major damage if ran like this. BUT, if it does it when it is trying to start, then yes, it is either the starter or the flywheel.

2002 malibu 3100 v6 motor runs rough a nd dies was told it was the timing gear how much to repair and diagram?


Should not be too expensive to fix. There are two aspects to this one is the generation of the spark and two is the timing of the spark. So for the timing locate your crank sensor along the edge of the engine flywheel housing and remove it. Give it a good clean and inspect it closely. Check the electrical connection. If the sensor is obviously cracked renew it. Now check the cam sensor for the same. Lastly, look at the ignition coil performance ..by checking the health of the spark on each of the plugs. Sudden death whilst running is most usually associated with one of the above and renewal of everything should eliminate the problem for good.

Possible Strut Problem....Is My Husband Right??


I dont know what kind of "tests" they could have done....But find a front end shop and tell them what happened and have them find the source of the rattle. Check the sway bar links, check for anything bent. Is the steering wheel straight? does the van now drift to one side or the other when the steering wheel is released while driviving? You coul dhave a bent strut. if so replace the pair and have a alignment done. Go to a independent repair shop not any type of Chain Store (midas, meinke, goodyear, firestones, tires r us ect.)

Front end rattles on rough road-told by certified mechanic that this was normal for this model and to fix would require replacing the whole steering column/power steering box


your mechanic is an idiot if he calls a rattle normal. see service bulletin 04-02-35-006 the dealer can look at your car and see if it applies.

The car started running extremely rough all of a sudden the cataletta converter is glowing red somebody told me to pull out the o2 sencers see if the car runs better if the converter was clogged but it...


If your converter is glowing it means that its clogged. You'll have to either replace it or break out the ceramic core. I'd recommend replacing it but this can be costly. To give it a quick fix you'll have to disconnect the converter and use a pry bar to break out the ceramic core, then reinstall the shell.. the down side to this fix is #1 emissions are higher #2 louder #3 may cause a problem with your O2 sensor....and may possibly be illegal
