Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Car has started making a wahwahwahwah noise recently.

Happens about every time I drive it but only after driving about 10 miles and when I brake or hit a bump it goes away. It seems to be coming from the front right side around the wheel. Can hear it better by rolling down right front window. The tire and belts look fine.

1998 land rover discovery transmission makes loud banging noise when shifting from pari to drive?


Tons of possibilities here (transmission, differential, motor mounts, transmission mounts....), so I'll ask some debug questions to help narrow it down. Does it make the noise when shifting into reverse? Also, does it make the noise only when shifting from park, or also when shifting from neutral (into drive or into reverse)? Did the noise start as an occasional, softer noise and get worse over time, or did it start suddenly? Does the vehicle lurch at the same time as the noise? What happens when you go from Reverse to Drive, or vice versa? Has any work been done recently (brakes, tires, alignment, suspension, transmission)?

Transmission


Your problem is a bad CV axle and outer carrier bearing failure. The grinding is coming from brake rotor on that side due to the bearing failure. the brake rotor and bearing is causing the lock down. Do not attempt to drive or further damage will occur. Transmission is probably OK. Replace both sides (CV axels and Carrier bearings, 150,000 is time) Check brake components for damage and replace pads while you are there.

My 2005 Equinox, 53,000 miles, makes a groaning noise shortly after putting it into gear. It happens as the car begins to move and goes about 10 feet. Sometimes it happens when I put it in Drive and ...


My 2 have always made that noise, I'm guessing it has something to do with the ABS charging in preparation for potential use. after a combined total of 240k miles, there has been no noted detrimental effect to this "charging" sound.
Great car.

Noise when Driving


if your car is not making noise during at idle well you might check the power steering fluid level it might be causing it to make a noise you said that its only making noise when driving right you might check your drive belt for wear it might be slip and about with your ABS it should throw a code on your dash board and also you mention if brake or strut could be causing it well its easy to identify brakes are making noise happen when you brake and strut will make a noise when you hit a bump ,hard corner well to diagnose it jounce the car ride on it on the front bumper also the rear.then when it comes to your transmission you said you can feel the noise all the time even at idle so dont worry for this time.
