It could be a vacuum line or the O2 sensor.

You need to adjust the idle screw within the engine bay, be careful when doing this, only turn the screw 1/8 at a time, to lower the revs turn it anti-clockwise.

Please rate my help, thanks

02 sentra replaced rear brakes driver side worn down put wheel back on will not spin free park brake not stuck when wheel off drum spins ok but if you put pressure on lug area it does not want to turn

Pull the tire and just tighten up the drum. See what it is rubbing against. Backing plate? If it not rubbing. Probably bent the face of the drum. I would replace it.

I have a 1992 plymouth sundance i keep hearing a grinding nosie only when i push on the gas you could hear it and when you put it in reverse now it does it while im driving pushing on gas or not i hear it

Being front wheel drive you might want to check the engine mounts. When your driving it ,the engine will move because of the torque. this is normal . If the mounts are bad it might be rattling or rubbing on something .

My 1998 chevy caviler has a grinding noise when i step on the gas peddle & rev it up, what can this be?

this could be anything i assume your hearing it under the hood. with the engen OFF pop open the hood and see if the fan blades are rubbibg aginst the fann schroud. check the end of each fan blade for possable signs of rubbibg check around the schroud for rubbing or anysign of rubbing. i dont know what type of noise your hearing you might want to check the belts make sure they are in place. and the pullys to make sure there is no movement other than turning the way they are supposed to go. if you cant see anything have a friend over and being very carefull with the hood still up have them or you start the car while the other one watches and listens under the hood. [KEEP HANDS BACK] have them rev... a little on it to see whats making the noise. and im sure youll find it. remember it has to be a moveing part making the noise..i hope this helps

Have a f150 2wd. rubbing sound in rear wheels.

I think your bearings are going bad if there is a bad spot on the turning of the wheel when off of the ground.

2004 F150 Fx4, when I turn left makes a rubbing or ruddering sound. Even when im at a full stop and start again it makes the same sound.

Stop with the wheel turned to the left, get out and make sure that there is nothing rubbing. Check to see if the inner wheel well is fastened properly, make sure the brake flex hose is not rubbing on the tire, snow build up?

I have a 2004 jeep grand cherokee,quadre drive full time 4X4. when i make hard left or right turns on pavement it makes wierd sounding noises. it sounds kinda like the tires, but im not sure. is this...

yes when you make the absoulute full turn your hearing like a hissing noise this is normal if this is what your hearing then problem solved but if has a different sound than that like a rubbing sound then check the fender wells to see is there is any rub marks this can be corrected by putting in a turn stopper

When taking a right or left turn , going slowly sounds as if tires are rubbing ? otherwise truck runs good, any solutions?

you tires may be to big for your truck. turn your wheel and look at them to see if they are rubbing. it my be rubbing on a plastic cover they put on under the wheel wels to keep the water from flying into the vehicle while driving while raining
