VANCS Tsurumi PN Pump 50PN2.4s bearing

My pump is so loud that I can hear it 20 feet away, Does this sound like a bearing and if so can it be replaced or am I better off not messing with it. Other than the noise it works fine.

SOURCE: I HEAR A LOUD WHINNING NOISE FROM UNDER THE HOOD

Yes there is a bearing in the AC clutch assembly, and the bearing can be changed with out swapping out for a whole new AC compressor unit or even taking the unit out. 
The other thing to you may want to check is the Serpentine belt tensioner. The tensioner then to break apart and or when the clutch activate put's more pressure on the system and the idler pully bearing could alsy be the problem. 
Spray some water on the fan belt whale the engine is running and see if the noise goes away and comes back as the water dry's. If the noise goes away then it's just a worn belt and need to be changed or you may want to do the quick fix and buy Fan belt dressing. 
Good luck and hope this helps

SOURCE: major loss of power to my 1997 pontiac grand prix gtp

There are to many things that can case your car the lose of power. Best thing to do is get the ECM scanned at Auto Zone for free, If there is no Auto Zone there most larger auto parts store can also scan the ECM and most garage now will scan for around $10.00 to $15.00.
You may want to change the Fuel Filter, a dirty fuel filter will restrict the fuel flow to the injectors making the engine run lean during boost causing miss fires and will burn up your spark plugs and worst the valves. If you do change the plugs, DO NOT REPLACE THEM WITH Platinum Plugs use a good set of copper plugs. the platnum's will heat up and glow causing detonation.
Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted on how you do.

SOURCE: Loud roaring noise when driving. Noise even louder when driving in curves and removing feet from accelerator

my best advice is not to replace your bearings on your own unless you know to do it perfectly.get an authorized service personnel to do it. since incorrect torque(tightening ) to the wheels may drastically affect your tyres, engine performance as well as your mileage.

SOURCE: whining noise in engine

Checking the level of the power steering is a good start. The pump is mechanical, driven by the serpentine belt, and cannot be turned off. Your steering may seem normal but if you let it go, low fluid can destroy the pump.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

I took my 2005 Chev. Malibu in for an oil change and now it is making a loud noise from the engine. they say its the water pump? is that possible?


  • Hi, I can help.
  • When your water pump goes bad it will begin to grind. I had one I let got far to long and it sounded deafening when I opened the hood. You can open your hood and listen and see for yourself. The water pump is on the belt line, left side under the hood, last pulley toward the rear.
  • Now if your asking can an oil change effect the water pump? No, not at all. Water pumps go sporadically.
  • It would be odd that you heard no noises before the oil change and now the water pump is loud enough to take notice after the oil change. The bearings usually go a little slower than that.

  • I would be interested in some more of the details to this. And what your overall concerns are. I'd be happy to further. help. Otherwise get a second opinion on your cars condition.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

My pontiac montana 1999 is making a loud humming sound only when iam moving. The faster I go the louder it gets and every once in awhile it jerks


you will have to ask a local mechanic to diagnose this noise for you as without hearing the noise i have no idea what it could be ,if i could hear the noise i could tell you straight away ,sorry to be a bore but its one of the joys of motoring as this noise could be a wheel bearing or a water pump and without hearing it ???'

I'm hearing a load bearing noise from the engine, I thought it was my water pump, but it's not


i had a problem with my compass when it was new. at first there was a nice kinda high pitched sound coming from the engine compartment. it was not loud so i ignored it. after a while the sound seemed to get louder and not even, kind of like a loud squeak. it will come and go. and yes it was the water pump. the dealer replaced it and no more noise after that.
