    i forget some of those are 4wd/awd, if the sounds coming from underneath than its probably a bad u joint, makes a similar noise to cv joints when going bad.

Does it make a clicking sound when you make a tight turn into like a parking lot or street? and maybe only one direction? if so you need to get your drive/half shafts rebuilt or replaced because the boot protecting the joint has ripped or come loose and has let dirt in and grease out.

SOURCE: 98 Accord DX clicks once when key is turned, eventually starts

Check battery terminals and make sure they are free of corrosion and are tightly secure on battery. If all is good it may be the stater that's sticking. or maybe clutch safety switch on clutch pedal is going bad. Good Luck contact me if you need more help

SOURCE: my 1997 honda accord wont start.....

Hi Matt

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.

Good Luck !

Let me know the outcome !

Also a FixYa rating would be nice !

How to clean battery terminal/cable

Could be a single battery cell that is failing that sometimes causes strange things to happen.

Well maintained battery terminals don't normally need cleaning.

When a battery begins to age or there is an overcharging fault the terminals could begin to corrode. Trickling boiling water over the corrosion will help disperse it before drying off and finishing off with manual methods as required.
Paying attention to safety (a battery can explode if the precautions aren't followed) disconnect the battery and using abrasive paper, scraping tools or wire brushes remove remaining corrosion and oxide deposits to leave shiny metal. Apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to all the surfaces and components and then refit the terminals.

2001 blazer makes a grinding or clicking noise during acceleration.

Yes, you need a brake job or clean the brake pads by taking off the tires, then the drums, wipe the inside of the drums of dirt, wipe the brakes off, and reassemble.

My 2006 Ford 500 SEL AWD stutters and shakes when coming to a stop and hesitates when accelerating. Cannot "gun it" at all. Takes forever to get to 30mph. Auto shop said a motor mount is broken... would...

no way motor mount will cause this. Why would a motor mount be bad on a car this new. has it been in a collision? I would first suspect a bad injector. That would cause the engine to lose power and struggle to idle which is what it is trying to do as you stop. the way to check injectors is to listen to them. They make a metallic clicking sound when working properly. Listening devices sold to do this are just a piece of metal attached to earpieces. you can do the same with a thin piece of wood and put your ear against it. if one is silent it needs replaced., Might still be under warranty check with dealer

Oil pressure drops, metal shavings, and somehow my oil level incr

My truck does the same thing, pressure never drops to 0 but drops low, replaced the oil pressure sensor and same thing happened. My oil is always black and has a lot of metal in it, next time you change your oil, pour a quart of transmission fluid into the oil and let it run for 10 minutes or so, this should thin out the oil and possibly unclog some of the ports that may be gummed up. What could have happened with the dipstick is that the old oil was too nasty to drain all the way, with the fresh oil it could have thinned out and raised the level, try the transmission fluid trick and see what happens, next possibility is to have the engine scoped to see whats going on inside

Every now and then there is a static like sound underneath my 2004 Chevy Avalanche. mostly in 1st gear and stops once i hit 2nd and third gears. it is not to loud, but very annoying. what could this be??

that sounds like a loose heat shield on the exhaust sytem ..... thats thin sheet metal under the hot parts of the exhaust system ... you can have them replaced or add new clamps to tighten them its easy to check them on a rack .. .. ..

Loud screeching noise coming from car after stops.

the screeching noise is most likely caused by a slipping belt or pully. transmission probably needs fluid and filter changed.

Jerky accelerating, late response to gas being pressed

Well for one, make sure you speed up slowly, dont HIT the accelerator. It may also be problems with your fuel filter. After you are stoped fuel stops running through the fuel pump/filter and then when you start going its starts to run through again and it cant keep up so it gets bubbles in it and doesnt move throught the filter easily hence the jerky accelerating. Good Luck

Clicking noise when accelerating or turning

That clicking noise could be a rod bearing starting to go. I had the same issue and the fuel injection system leaked into the engine oil below, thinned out the oil and I threw the main bearing and 3 rod bearings. Feeling really stupid as I have now changed the engine out and have a problem with electronics. Anyway, check your engine oil for metal shavings and rub it between your fingers. If there is a silvery cast to it inspect the inside of the fuel delivery system. If the nylon hoses are leaking and the inside of it looks wet or looks like there is gas leaking, I'd change the spider injection system. Autozone sells the kit for $275. It aint cheap but cheaper than a new or used engine. I'm up to $800 already and still having bugs to work out. My car had that same ticking noise and by the time I found out what was causing it, it was to late. Wish I would have known... Good luck
