Sounds are one of the hardest things to figure out without hearing them. Check to see if the exhaust system is hanging lower than it should, if it is it maybe hitting something as you drive and has probably broken a hanger which a muffler shop can fix for you. Also you can check to see if it is an exhaust leak by cupping your hand making a seal over the tailpipe with the vehicle running. Do this check right after the car has been started, be careful not to hold the pipe or burn yourself sometimes a rag in your hand can be helpful. If there is pressure against your hand your exhaust should not have any leaks on the other hand if there is a leak the noise you hear should change and there maybe suction on your hand. Suction=Leak Pressure blowing away from the tailpipe=no Leaks

What could be causing Intermittent high piched whinning sound from ford v10 engine on 1999 Winnebago Brave. Speed does not affect it and sound is causing no issues yet.


Check the tension of the fan belt as if it is to slack it will slip under load causing the noise. Tightening it solve your problem.

Have whinning noise when turning right or slowing down sounds like a power steering noise in rear end


A whinning noise while turning is an indication of a worn bearing. The extra pressure put against the bearing/race during the turn and the closing of a gap creates this noise.I would chech the axle bearings on the side of the truck on the outside the curve when you hear it. What I'm saying is if you hear it when you turn left....check the right side bearing

Loud thumping and whinning noise


It sounds like you have a lot of wear on your ping and pinion gears in the rear end. Ford has a product you can purchase from their parts dept that will help with the noise but eventually you will need to get the gears replaced. The product is a friction modifier designed just for rear ends.

When i turn the key in the ignition it sounds like its not getting any gas can you tell me whats the problem when i spray gas into the filter under hood it crank up for a few seconds and cut off.


Do you hear a noise in the tank? Sounds like a whinning noise, if not then your fuel pump is bad. If you do hear a sound, then it is possible your filter is clogged. Lastly, if you have all of that alright check the crank sensor. Hope that helps out. Good luck

2000pontiacgrandprix noise under accelration maybe exhuast?


Hello! First of all, congrats on owning a great car! That engine (3.8L Series II L67) is without a doubt one of the finest GM (Buick) has ever produced!

On to your problem - I think you have one of 2 things wrong:

1) a loose heat shield
2) a broken exhaust hanger

Both of these will cause intermittent (and highly annoying) rattling sounds, especially at low speeds or when the engine is under load (like going up a hill for instance). There are 2 hangers under the car located almost directly under the front floorboard. These are prone to breakage. There is also a heat shield in this same area - that is very prone to coming loose. If it's the heat shield - you can either remove it - or have it tack welded. If the hanger(s) are broken, you will need to take it to an exhaust shop (unless you know a welder :) ) and have those fixed - shouldn't cost you more than $20 either way.

Hope this helps and good luck!

1995 chevy silverado making a whinning noise


Sounds like it's starving for fluid. The noise you hear is probably a clogged filter. It it's been going on for a long period of time, you may have trans damage. I would recommend changing the fluid and filter and add some Lucas trans additive. I'm not much on additives but this stuff works. Hope this helps. Phil
