Drive it to a muffler shop. You won't hurt anything driving it, just your ear drums, maybe.

First check your transmission fluid level improper fluid level is the number one cause of trans failure, you need to check it with the vehicle warmed up, on flat ground, i accidently checked mine while it was tilted in my driveway and i got a false reading on the dipstick. The fluid should have a reddish color too it, if it is light brown, its time to get it serviced, if it is dark brown or black and you can feel gritty particles while rubbin it between your fingers, your transmission is toast.

SOURCE: steering wheel of my Toyota Corolla LE 2007 vivrates

Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.

SOURCE: Loud Knocking when pressing on gas pedal

What you are describing sounds like you have an engine bearing failing. Do not drive it 'till you have it diagnosed and repaired (most times though it's too late when you hear it.)..... Outside chance it could be the trans flex plate but I doubt it.

I own a 1995 Toyota Corolla and when I turn on the car and turn the steering wheel there is a loud screeching noise. This noise will go away after about 5 minutes of driving. Can I repair whatever this...


There is a loose belt, or a pulley giving you problems. Remove the belts if you felt that one of those belts was really loose that was the problem, spin the pulleys, the crank pulley is hard to spin by hand see if wobble by hand, if one of those pulleys has excessive movement that was the problem, if all of the are tight then just adjust the belt tension, good luck BettyHasting.

It sounds like its the muffler, but when i put it into drive the noise is still there, but a little less noisy. what could it be?


If your car is making a noise that sounds like the muffler isn't working, chances are there is a rust hole in it or in a pipe before it. It should get quieter when you put it in drive with your foot on the brake. The idle rpm drops in drive, less RPMS = less noise.

Loud clicking noise


It sounds like one of your pistons are bad as in the connecting rod pin's to the piston is loose and your getting to much internal engine pressure, that's why your getting lot's of oil coming out the top if your engine. Sorry for the news friend but time to retire the car, the cost is going to be greater to repair then replace.

Weird Sound while in motion


Hi,

To my knowledge, the only possible source of any growl (noise) underneath the car towards the center or rear would be the exhaust pipe after the converter before the muffler. Often they use rubber dougnuts as hanger support. A loose or broken support would significantly misalign thie exhaust pipe enough to cause vibration or wind induced noise.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
