Noise under right front of hood

2002 Chrysler T&C eS. Strange intermittent noise under right fron of hood. Audible when standing idling and low speeds only. Checked obvious alternator, belt tensioner, bearings, etc. Source hard to diagnose as you never know when it will happen. Cannot isolate any conditions (a/c clutch, left/right turning of steering wheel, etc.) Alos checked right front engine mount. No visible cracks seen.

Any ideas?

This is pretty hard to diagnose without being there. I would suggest that you take a hose with ends cut off and listen through it, since you are mechanically inclined. I would also check things that may be rattling against the firewall, the exhaust system for rattles as they tend to do so when bushings are worn out, and recheck the things you have if you haven't done so with hose or stethescope. I had a similar problem that was a loose exhaust bushing... Hope this helps you, Rick

Intermittent Rattling & Cylinder Miss On 95 Nissan 2.4L 4 Cyl

Yes, it COULD be a timing chain rattling, but again, your guess is probably better than mine at this point.

Without the ability to hear the noise it is impossible to say. Noises can be very difficult to locate when you are standing right in front of the vehicle. It is completely unachievable to perform this task remotely.

Are you sure it is coming from the engine and not the transmission? Or maybe even the exhaust? It is not likely for a timing chain noise to go away as a reult of putting the transmission in gear.

As for the misfire, when does it occur? is it at idle? Is it when you are accelerating (putting the engine under a load? Does it only misfire at high speeds? Much more info needed here.

Where is the transmission intake speed sensor

the input speed sensor is pretty easy to find.

With the hood open and standing in front of the van you should see the transmission on the drivers side of the vehicle. look under the two transmission cooler lines that are connected to the transmission. You will see a two wire connector plugged into a light brown/cream colored sensor. That is the input speed sensor. Usually the lines need to be removed in order to replace it. A one inch socket or wrench will also be needed to loosen/tighten the sensor.

Eventually you will be asking about the output speed sensor. It looks exactly the same as the input. It is located to the right (drivers side) of the input speed sensor as you standing in front of the vehicle. It is usually easier to see/access/replace from under the vehicle.

Front heater blower low speeds dont work

if you have just high speed, you need to change resister, usually in plenum case to keep it cool. If it goes again, change motor, it is drawing too much current

Audi A4 2002 2.5 TDi Struggles to take speed

Since the experts have failed, try this:
Have someone inside the car, tranny in park or neutral if manual, parking brake on; you are going to stand in front of it.
- Hood open - Have helper jab the accelerator and watch the engine closely; have them do it more than once but let the engine idle down each time. 
If the movment seems excessive, check the motor mounts. Should be three altogether.
If one of these is torn, it will **** linkage for fuel and drive axles causing all manner of strange effects and movements.
I confess, it shouldn't have anything to do with warmup but tha can also be coincidence or a combination of intermittant problems.

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it...

I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. On this side, the bushing is manufactured opposite of the passenger side. The lip is up and causes the two metal pieces to rub. I had to grind down the lip so it would be like the other side. All is better now. I'm not sure if this is where your noise is coming from since it gets louder with speed. I would assume yours is a bearing. Sorry.
