SOURCE: very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

My car runs only on 5 cylinders. During a check-up it showed that cylinder 5 doesn't get any gas. I have checked the thing that gets the gas into the cylinders by switching place on them.

I have mesured that all the cables are whole, even the dead earth. I have switched the controller box with an exactly the same numberwise, and still cylinder 5 doesn't get any fuel.

By starting all the 6 cylinders get gas at the same time but then it starts to go round between the cylinders but skips cylinder 5.

SOURCE: Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

Have an 03 suberban z71 today wife was driving and lost power to the pettle and overheating transmission light came on how can i fix this


Check engine light come on ? Any messages on DIC - driver information center , reduced power ,if the vehicle has it . Any other lights lite , yellow wrench symbol . Do you own a scan tool ? a professional grade scan tool , not a code reader . Do you know how to do electrical trouble shooting ? Suggest you go on you tube an check out videos on electronic throttle control .
Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description
The throttle actuator control (TAC) system delivers improved throttle response and greater reliability and eliminates the need for mechanical cable. The TAC system performs the following functions:
• Accelerator pedal position sensing
• Throttle positioning to meet driver and engine demands
• Throttle position sensing
• Internal diagnostics
• Cruise control functions
• Manage TAC electrical power consumption
The TAC system components include the following:
• The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensors
• The throttle body assembly
• The throttle actuator control module
• The powertrain control module (PCM) .I strongly suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop

Why does my 1985 nissan 720 truck idle high and lose power and sensor light is on?


It can be a fuel injector or any relative part on the throttle body if you only have one injector spraying fuel? You can if it is safe drive to autozone and they will retrieve your troublecodes and print a receipt of all possibilities!

Acura MDX 2006 got OBD code of u0107, any solution?


Acura code U0107 = "lost communication with throttle actuator control module"
test it and replace if tests indicate failure or out of spec.
if you don't have the ability to do this, take to your favorite mechanic or the stealership.

Vw golf lost all power and EPC LIGHT came on,started again after 10mins,but car feels like it pulling????


The EPC light normally comes on for electrical throttle issues. Either the gas pedal inside the car that fails or the motor actuator that fails on the throttle body causing the butterfly valve not to operate.

1998 Saturn SW2, 180,000+ miles. Recent starting problem.


It does sound like an electrical issue.  Double check if the ground connections are all OK.  You may have to check out the wirings, even the wiring loom if all wires are still OK.
