2001 nissan sentra "squeaking sound esp when the air blower is on

When the car starts, its making a squeaking (not exactly what kind of noise) sound. I noticed that it happens frequently when I'm on a stop and especially when the air blower (heater) is on on a stop mode and when I start to accelerate.

Have your belt checked for wear, if it is ok- just tighten it. Should take only a few minutes but if you over tighten it this could put a strain on the generator and water pump causing the bearings in one or the other to fail.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE


Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.

When you turn the key over it just makes a buzzing noise , sounds like its coming from underneath the middle of the dash . car has a brand new battery. starter was replaced about 2.5 years ago .


It has to be the starter. You described almost exactly where the starter is, nothing else in the starting system makes that sound. The age of the starter is unfortunate but doesn't mean it's not the problem. Keep in mind that the one you replaced was only five years old. Make sure the battery show a minimum of 13-14 volts but I'd bet on your starter. And I don't bet!

2001 nissan sentra 1.8: when the car first


Hi it sounds like you have noisy tappits you could try using a thicker oil speak to a local car spares shop about this as this might solve your problem if not then it would be a case of replacing the hydraulic lifters this is quite a big job and something a novice should not attempt but if the noise isnt to bad then its not going to wreck your car if after time the noise gets louder then you would need to get these parts replaced.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

01 sentra when i accelerate my car doesnt speed up and it makes a wooofing noise


very first thing i would try is a full tune up. This means the fuel filter , air filter, plugs and wires and possibly the coils. If this still does not fix it then try doing an emissions clean on it. What this does is it cleans out the intire fuel system and is very simple to do. Depending on the transmission on whether its a standard or automatic could be a bad tranny.
