If if feels like a none rhythmic knock it could indicate a lose or broken muffler mount. If you hear it at acceleration or when the engine is under load it could also be a broken engine mount. The muffler mount is easy to replace provided the brackets are not rusted away. The engine mount will require the engine weight lifted of the mount to replace it. Good Luck.

Tough one; Is there a roof rack on that car? The cross members could cause that, they're removable. Try that. If it were tire noise you'd hear them with the windows up even louder. If not the roof rack look for loose moldings esp around the windows.

SOURCE: makes a humming sound between 30 and 40 mph

I suspect that one of your wheel bearing have worn out. SO to confirm please lift up one by one all the wheel and rotate. listen to any hum which corresponds to your noise. hold the wheel on either sides and check for any shake even a small one. if you detect a hum check the wheel bearings and the HUB, most cars have this assembly making the noise specially when the grease becomes dry or there had been water logging specially salty.If so change the bearings / hubs, when changing look out for any damage to the axle. I hope you get this right. Helpful? Good day.

What could this be? I need help please


Vacuum leak. Open the hood and try to locate where the hissing sound is coming from. Likely a rotted rubber vacuum hose somewhere.

Car stalls when foot off gas pedel does not hold idle


these trucks are equipped with an idle speed control motor. What you're describing sounds like that part has stopped working. The part is designed to maintain idle when gas pedal is released. Now if you hear an audible hissing noise under the hood, then theres a vacuum leak which can cause the same problem, but it sounds like the idle control motor. Good luck.

I CAN HEAR A HISSING SOUND BY THE FUEL CAP AFTER I TURN OFF MY TRUCK


If you hear a hissing sound from the gas cap then the o ring that seals the tank is either cracked or tore. the tank has to build up pressure. thats where u r hearing the hissing sound replace it, it should stop after.

Nissan Pathfinder has himming/hissing sound


Check for an exhaust leak if it is more hissing than humming. If humming, I would suspect the u-joint. Since it is rear wheel drive, we have drive shafts and the one that goes from the tranny to the front differential may just be your problem, especially if it were sitting for a LONG time and possibly corrosion or rust is a factor. More than likely, if the u-joint is making noise, it is degraded rollers in the bearing of the u-joint and will need to be replaced before either siezing or breaking.

First thing to do is check under hood for any "hissing" noises, and check all vacuum hoses are connected properly, and not leaking.
