Could be more than one problem. If you tried to start it right after you blew the hose, something could have gotten wet. I hope you have tried after everything has dried out.
Also the sound could be something related to the timing. You could have lost a timing belt. Need to look into it alittle deeper. Get more info and let's try again.

91 Ford Mustang what is common wiring problems and starting problem with the starter and heard in a pop under the hood on the driver side n smoke coming from drivers side under hood?


You did not mention what the status of the car was when this happened (VERY IMPORTANT... DO SO NEXT TIME). If you were attempting to start the engine when this happened, your starter may have failed. Starters occasionally shunt and cause this. Try replacing the starter AND starter solenoid. Also, verify that your battery connections are good, and that the battery wires did not have a meltdown. If they are burned, REPLACE THEM as well.

2000 Ford Mustang GT has very loud cabin noise while driving, but not while idling or revving the engine at idle.


At that mileage your wheel bearings probably need changing, especially if you haven't been lubricating them whenever you did a brake job! Usually the front wheel bearings, the ones taking the weight from the engine and turning weight transfer to the outside wheels on curves burn out first...do it!!!

What's the steps to do an idle re-learn on a 2007


Hold the idle at 2000 RPM for 2 minutes then drop it to 1500 for 2 minutes and then 1000 for 2 minutes, then let it return to idle for 5 minutes. Full relearn requires some driving as well, mixed low and highway speed and idle time.

Clicking Noise Coming From Under The Hood


Have you checked your belts? A piece of belt may have come off and been slapping under your hood, and then fell off completely. While it was slapping, your computer would have detected the slow down of pulleys etc. and caused your engine light to come on. Then when the piece broke off, everything would be back to normal. Let me know!

2003 cts will not start - 101,000 miles


it sounds like your alternator let go, therefore your battery is not charging, you will need to investigate further but the rattling would be explained by the alternator mechanically breaking internally and failing to charge the battery resulting in your present situation
