    It doesn't make any noise until the electrical load is put on it. I'm pretty sure it's a bearing in the Alternator.

2011 gmc acadia alternator failed. I changed the alternator and now it will not start. Has clicking noise from under the hood. The check engine flickers rapid says service bat charge system


Charge the battery or jump start it. When the alternator dies, the car runs off the battery and drains it. Older batteries can recoup fast enough.

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor


Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

Blower motor makes a growling noise when running. how do I replace the motor?


The blower motor is located under the hood on the right side(passenger) near the hood hinge. It is under the black plastic cover that you need to cut out to replace the motor. Follow the lines that they made in the plastic with a sharp razor knife.

Peace,

Recently i hear noise coming from under the hood, when my rpms are high, the gauges start dimming. Could it be my alternator? Belt looks good. battery gauge level is right.


If the lights go dim while driving then the charging lights should come on and that means either the relay is braking down or the regulator in the Alternator is braking down .
Its quicker and cheeper to get it checked out by a elect shop than buying a Alternator and still having the problem after, as the alternator should charge about 13.5 volts while running.. Ron

Growling noise when turning


I think it is the rear differential fluid that needs to be changed. I had the same problem.

Motor noise


the clicking noise is probably the solenoid on starter! if this fails then all you will hear is a clicking sound. also check to see if you have voltage in battery, can also be alternator not charging right, if alternator is not charging it will not recharge battery. not enough juice to battery causing it ti click. battery voltage should be approx. 12.5- when running, voltage to battery should be approx.14 volts.
