Question about 2006 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

I have a Sentra 2001 with Winter tires and it seems that the noise from driving has suddenly increased by double. It sounds like a plane. The car idles fine so it isn't an engine problem. What could it be?

The first thing to try is to rotate the tires. Tread wear will definitely change the road noise heard by the driver especially with winter tires.

If the noise does not at least change somewhat after rotation then the problem is not tire related.

2000 dodge stratus, thump noise increase/decreas while driving,new tires 4,new cv axles,new brakes,new power steering pump installed, but thump sound is still there ?

My thought would be to look at the u joints and drive line. When driving the car and it makes the thumbing sound shift to natural, if the sound stops it is probably in drive line.

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.

Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting

2000 Cav wheel noise/vibration

Sounds like one of the bands inside the tire could be busted.
Solution - new tire.
Get the tracking checked as well.
It also could be a ball joint.
But that can be checked when you get the tracking sorted.

99 trooper with TOD how do i know if it is on

Power drive delays the shift points for upshift of the automatic transmission. It will degrade fuel economy, but you'll get more peppy performance.

Winter drive will only engage if the vehicle speed is below a certain threshold (I think 23 miles per hour) - and only if the vehicle is in Reverse, Neutral, or Drive. It causes the automatic transmission to start off in 3rd gear (rather than 1st gear). The purpose is to provide power, but not torque to the tires. In winter driving, torque increases the probablility of the tires spinning. The vehicle will seem to be VERY sluggish when winter driving is engaged - which is completely normal behaviour. It will automatically disengage when vehicle speed increases above the threshold.

Yellow horshoe light with exclamation point in middle

Yeah, it is suppose to look like a low inflated tire. See the treads on the bottom. When you inflate the tires, you might need to drive a little for the light to turn off. The tires have sensors that send a signal, but only when rotating.

This happened to me last winter; and for some reason, it took an abnormally long amount of time for the light to go off. Not sure if it was a coincidence or pure happestance, but my light went off when the ambient temp increased above 20F (even though my tires had been properly inflated for two days and drove 80 miles).
