Seafoam it, it works. rough running and fuel smell is from bad EGR. I tried Seafoam on a 98 Saturn with similar issues that was barley running, now it runs great.

Blueish smoke out of exhust,no power, puddle of oil under car, smells like raw fuel out of exhust


Hi , it sounds like your valve stem oil seals need renewing. If you mix oil with petrol it does not all get ignited hence blue smoke from the oil and the smell of petrol out the exhaust.

Hi, my golf mk1 1.6 1995 model makes a tapping sound when i drive it but it stops when i idle


Sounds like to me a small exhust leak either
a exhust manafold gasket or exhust flange
gasket or cracked exhust manifold.
Anything else would be enteral meaning
valves need to be set, bad lifter, bad rod bearing,
bad oil pump, or timing chain tensioner,
BUT I would be willing to put my money
on an exhust leak or timing chain tensioner
it's one of the 2

My 2003 Altima 2.5s makes a humming type (vibration?)sound.


I have a 2003 Nissan Altima making a humming sound towards the front of the motor at idle in Park.

Not sure if alternator or compressor.

Not rattle from timing cover has to be something Nissan already denies.

The rattle that you hear is the upper timing chain tensioners, they can be changed without doing the entire timing chain job, which is really expensive and difficult.

When i put in 4 wheel drive i got a clicking popping sound and when in 2 wheel drive it sounds like a rattling sound that gets louder the faster you go


Sounds like gear and chain need to be replaced in transfer case.
The popping and or clicking is the chain trying to climb up over the teeth on the gear in transfer case.

Rattling sound at idle speed


The rattling is a worn-out timing chain (rattling should be louder at one end of the engine). Get it changed now - they will eventually break, closely followed by your bank balance!

Ticking and rattling


Is it a 3.9? Does it sound like it is coming from the front of the engine(timing chain)? From the factory the 3.9 didn't come with a timing chain tensioner. They are available after market.
