    It is a constant humming, especially when I speed up it gets a little louder. Someone just told me it might be the catalylic converter. Which is very expensive

    your problem is definitely in your exhaust, if it's possible get under your vehicle with and see if you can't tell of any holes in any of your exhaust pipes, muffler, or catalytic converter. If not then i would take your car to an auto shop for an exhaust inspection, it should be free

Truck start up run great couple minutes then shut off let set few minutes then crank up run great 30 second shuts down like you cut key off let set few minutes crank right back run fine then dose same


Sounds like it is running out of fuel. Maybe a bad fuel pump, or clogged filter. If it is carbureted, a stuck float valve or clogged float valve might be the problem.

Telling us year, make and model would allow us to help you more.

Car runs fine at times then will not start. Sprayed carb cleaner in air filter and then it starts but dies when i start. The next day car starts and runs fine.


It sounds like your car isn't getting the proper amount of gas. You say your mechanic changed the fuel pump and the regulator. Id have him run a diagnostic tool on it to see if it throws any other codes. Its getting fire. Try changing the FUEL FILTER. it maybe clogged. maybe the pressure regulator is not giving it enough pressure to push the gas into the engine or maybe the fuel pump is only working at times. Does it run good and then start to spit and spudder then die? if so its not getting gas some how. Idk if you can adjust the pressure regulator or not. i mostly work on old school cars.

Car was running fine stopped to put gas in the car and now will not start. sounds like it wants to start but I think there is something going on with the gas. I can hear the gas pump working.


Sounds like a clogged fuel filter in the gas line. You may have let the fuel level get too low in the tank and the deposits were pumped into the filter and clogged it!

1992 nissan maxima, hard start,runs fine until it starts puffing white smoke then its gutles as hell and wants to stall,before when i attempted to start it,it would sound like it would backfire or...


if it is puffing white smoke,you have lost a piston ring or broke it.the white smoke is coming from oil burning around the piston.your hard strating is due to the fact that you are loosing compreshion in the motor.take it into a mech.and have them run compreshion test on it.GOOD LUCK pretty spendy!

My trailblazer sounds like an airplane taking off when the engine first is cranked after setting for a period of time. It takes 10-20 minutes for this to settle down. When you slow down, it makes this...


Have the FLEX PLATE checked. If thats o.k., then it sounds internal, like a rod knock, maybe? If the noise is coming from the bottom of the motor Oil pump might be restricted, sometimes the oil pickup unit gets clogged with sludge. By the time you realize it, the damage already has been done, unfortunately.

On the highway, car began to make noise when foot taken off excelerator, runs fine, until in coast. on way to Florida, have any ideas?


Maybe one idea. Going to Florida has nothing to do with the noise except makes you scared being away from home. Sometimes front wheel bearings go bad-all of a sudden. Not bad where the wheel will fall off but starting to make a noise like a airplane prop. A humming low pitch sound but almost constant. Not enough to feel it in steering wheel. If this decribes your sound-noise chances that is what it is. DON'T worry you can travel many, many miles with this noise. My mini van started doing it 20,000 miles ago. I got the parts but it's a bear to replace. I hope this helps you. If you need parts go to ebay.

95 dodge dakota - cranks, runs 4 times, 5th don't wanna run


You will need to check the fuel pressure, if it is on the minimum pressure side or lower then you will need to change the fuel pump.

1990 rs legacy not running right idles fine when driving it back fires an feels like there is no power an all i here when i get to about 3000 rpm is air getting sucked


I would like to add onto dallen4582's list: check to see if something is in your tailpipe, or maybe even a clogged catalytic convertor. To check the cat. take the car for a ride at night, then look at the cat. to see if it is glowing, if so, replace the cat. The air sound could be the exhaust trying to get through the cat. but can't, so it's finding the easiest way out. probably at the flange. Best of luck and wishes.
