Question about Chevrolet Impala

Odd grinding sound from 2004 Impala (3.4L)

A metallic sound has started coming from the passenger side of the engine. You can only hear it when the car is first accelerating or under load from going up a hill. It sounds like it originates around the tensioner or crankshaft pulleys. I have had the alternator, tensioner and water pump changed. Any ideas on what could be causing it?

Internal transmission failure, there is a bearing that fails on that side of the trans and usually tears up the final drive, drop the pan and check for chunks of metal if found i would replace the trans being the car is 9 years old now

SOURCE: Loud squealing sound in my engine

Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.

The water pump bearings could be going out and they will make a grinding noise.The water pump doesn't always leak when the bearings are going out.

The belt is either too tightly fixed or a bit loose.

See to that but it does not affect the running of the car in anyway.

Cheers.

SOURCE: noisy water pump pulley,alternator pulley..timing belt tensioner

I have a 1995 xj6....same problem. I replaced the belts, water pump, and the alternator. Still does it. As I play with the tension on the belt (belt that drives water pump, alternator) it goes away and comes back. If I remove the belt, the metal to metal screech stops. I then, with just the belt, turned the main pulley on the front of the engine, and there was the sound! The main pulley has 2 belts that run on it. Also, 2 pulley tracks. They SHOULD move simultaneously and be super meshed. But the rear one moves on its own under tension until it warms up and I guess, the bushing maybe expands. Now.....how do I fix it??????

My 2004 Prius has a rattling metallic sound on acceleration. It is coming from the top of the engine on the passenger side. Does anyone know what this can be?


Does the car make this sound when the car has just been turned off and engine is still hot? Lightly push the car back and forth while it's in park. Does it still make that sound?

Rear wheel bearings??


Yes. It could absolutely be wheel bearings gone bad. Any time a wheel wiggles more than a little bit that is the first place to check on the rear of the vehicle.

Grinding noise when making right turns.


CV joint. Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

200SX SE Nissan 1996, making weird noise on passenger side


a little tip for you...it sounds like the pads are squealing, try taking the pads out and applying a very thin film of high temperature grease on the rear of the pads (NOT TO THE FRICTION SIDE), this may seem a bit of an odd thing to do, this tip was passed down to me by an old mechanic friend of mine years ago,and it works every time for me.
