Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Daewoo Matiz 1999

When the car is warmed up and has been travelling for a few miles a really bad knocking noise starts. It sounds like something is about to fall off. The sound iappears to be coming from the front of the car. 2 mechanics have looked at it (when it's been cold!!) and said they cannot find anything wrong. There is also an oil leak but only when the car is warm. Someone mentioned it could be the powersteering.

Any ideas?

There's a humming noise, relative to road speed. Starts at 35-40 mph. I wondered if this is a familiar problem to old Matizs and hoped you might help me locate it.

There are may things it could be. But the most common ones are:
- Broken belt in your tire.
- Bad wheel bearing
- loose brakes
- bad tie rods or ball joints

2001 azteck 49000 miles use very little once every

The 3.4L engine has special pistons that are designed to expand as the engine heats up. When the engine is cold, the pistons make a knocking sound that resembles lifter noise or piston slap. As long as the noise goes away after the engine warms up, don't sweat it; this is normal.

I have a 96 nissan king cab xe 2400 ist starts really good runs good till warm and then starts ticking noise sounds like valves but not sure

A few things to try. Might be engine knocking from not using proper octane fuel. Also, an oil/filter change. If these simple things do not help, seek out a mechanic.

I have a 2005 Dodge neon sxt and in the morning when I start it the engine makes a really loud knocking for about 15 seconds then it gets softer. The noise is there all day. I have about 66k miles on it...

This is probably a bent pushrod or warped head or something of that sort. SERIOUS problems. Take it to a mechanic. Knocking of any sort is a bad, BAD sign. Good luck.

On the highway, car began to make noise when foot taken off excelerator, runs fine, until in coast. on way to Florida, have any ideas?

Maybe one idea. Going to Florida has nothing to do with the noise except makes you scared being away from home. Sometimes front wheel bearings go bad-all of a sudden. Not bad where the wheel will fall off but starting to make a noise like a airplane prop. A humming low pitch sound but almost constant. Not enough to feel it in steering wheel. If this decribes your sound-noise chances that is what it is. DON'T worry you can travel many, many miles with this noise. My mini van started doing it 20,000 miles ago. I got the parts but it's a bear to replace. I hope this helps you. If you need parts go to ebay.
