SOURCE: LOUD RACE CAR NOISES FROM MY 99 VW BEETLE

This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.

SOURCE: Engine revs up even when parked - Honda Odessey 2002

replace the idle air control valve.(on the bottom of the throttle body) may be easier to remove the throttle body and turn in upside down to remove the idle air control valve and hoses. be sure not to pinch the gasket. after u do that be sure to replace any coolant that may have came out. then, start the car, rev the car to 3000 rpms till the radiator fan comes on , then let the vehicle idle for 20 - 30 mins . the computer should relearn the idle. local honda dealer should have the valve in stock,

SOURCE: My brake lights still on even if I turn the engine off!!!

It sounds like your brake light switch is stuck on. You can try to pull it out or just replace it as they aren't very expensive and pretty easy to replace. It is located on the brake pedal and sometimes they just go bad. Weird that you have two at the same time. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

MY 1987 CHEVY MONTE CARLO LS ENGINE RACES WHEN START IT UP.IT WON'T STOP TILL, MAYBE 7 0R 8 MINUTES


Two places to start. First clean the throttle body/carb. Brake clean and a tooth brush. Clean inside as best and deep as you can, clean the back of the throttle plate and were it seats the most. It will take a few seconds, start the car up and spray the cleaner in the throttle as you rev it up. Then after that, I would replace the engine coolant sensor.

Engine revs up to 3000-4000 rpm all by itself


THERE IS A TEMPERATURE SENSOR ON MOTOR WHICH CAUSES THIS PROBLEM... USUALLY IT SHOWS A NEGATIVE TEMP READING WHICH CONFUSES THE COMPUTER CAUSING IT TO REV UP....HAVE THE ENGINE DIAGNOSED ON A SCANNER....GOOD LUCK...

Noise when driving starts from 30 mph.. when turn wheel to left on the interstate, the noise becomes louder. Change left axle the noice didn't go away... also leaks around the axles, and from power...


sounds like powersteering pump. put it in park and open hood. have someone stand in front of engine near powersteering pump and put hand on it to feel vibration. MAKE SURE CAR IS IN PARK. Rev engine to about 2200 Rpm's and see if I am correct. Thanks and Good luck
