My car is making bearing like noise just like pink...but the noise is not constant. It only appears when the start of acceleration occurs between 1500-2000rpm. The noise is coming from the front of engine,...

Does your vehicle have a serpentine belt ( flat and wide, ribbed on the inside)? if so,first I would check the belt tensioner. You'll need a tensioner tool ( rentable from Autozone with a refundable deposit). Before starting, observe the routing of the belt, as this is crucial to your motor ! Release the tension on the belt and slide off of the tensioner. Holding the belt out of the way, spin the tensioner. listening for the popping or snapping sound. If the tensioner is ok, check the idler pulley the same way - I'm pretty sure it will be one of the two. Other than this, I would need more specifics of your vehicle in order to research. If the motor is not running hot, I would not suspect the water pump - which may or may not be operated by the serpentine belt.I would not run the motor until you determine the problem - most newer motors are interference motors, meaning the pistons cannot be in the up position while the valves are open, or else serious damage will occur to the valves ( typically the exhaust valves and guides are severely damaged).Also, if it is the tensioner or idle pulley, you could lose the belt while driving which would knock out your power steering, alternator, and possibly your water pump.
I hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

My immobiliser on ford focus diesei estate has stuck on causing me not to be able to start the car cant locate it under the bonnet

It's back to the dealership or a very good technician competent or Fords , you are locked out for a reason and you may as well be an undesireable trying to "nick" the motor. Security systems are meant to be secure and only Henry Ford dealership equipment will open the system for you !

Toyota vits 2005 shaking engine

Very possibly you have a bad motor mount. Is the engine missing or running smooth but shaky? If it is missing, then it may be plugs, wires, or injectors, if runs fine but shaky, then you may have a bad motor mount.
