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

The trans has to come out & apart to hopefully
find the issues

Noises aren't that common in trans failures

They fail often & by the millions every day from not
changing fluid every 3 years,but a loud noise is more like

I give it gas and it won't accelerate


Can be several problems, one the injectors can be clogged and not allowing the gas thru at a fat enough rate, two it could be a gas filter going bad.

Front Wheel noise


Normally when this happen you must exchange the following parts:
ball joints +lower control arm +upper control arm+upper ball joint+arm bushing+ bar link+sway bar.

Of course maybe the coil spring. Since the cars are exposed to dust, and bad care you must proceed according. sincerely.

Had a question bout my mazda rx8 I was driving it one night it was running fine the next day went out and it won't turn over it takes awhile bit it finally starts and idles real rough and you give it...


Too many possibilities

Won't turn over is one problem -battery,cables,grounds,
starter,solenoid,etc

Idles rough-- vacuum leaks,spark plugs never replaced,
egr valve etc

Worn O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old Fuel Filter

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.
