This cart has an occasional growl in the drive line , and slowes down when it does . When growl goes away speeds back up? Seller says just belt slipping ? Any ideas ?

Slipping drive belts give off a loud screeching noise. Not really a growl. You can buy 'Belt Conditioner' from car accessory places. It helps the belt to grip. You spray it on with the engine running.

If it affects the speed of the car, then it isn't a drive belt unless you have a belt driven car or motorcycle. You posted to Cars and Trucks, so we will assume it is a car. I smell a rat and wonder if this is why he is selling it. Take it to a garage and ask them to tell you what the problem is and then go back to the seller with the truth.

Renaultmegan 04 model fires up first time no problem but then sounds like a growling noise for a split second and only does it first thing in the morning

Hi.could be whats called"a dry start". Fit a genuine oil filter to the engine. With cheaper oil filters the oil drop back into the sump when left for long periods of time.good luck.

Renault megane tourer sport 1.6 2004 - when i start the car either in the morning or when it has been stood a short while, it makes a loud noise, like a transit van or a tractor. it is only for a few

it looks like u have bad spark plugs, mainly when the car is cold .this noise seems to be backfire coming thru air fllter casing or the accessory belts. also check your engine oil quality-replace if necessary

First start of the day, engine fires up and runs well then stalls

This is a tough one to solve without hearing it myself. There are several things which will make noise, its the stalling that matters. I will give you 4 that can stall a car and make noise.
1.Traction control cutting off airflow to engine.
2.Automatic ride control pump pulling down alternator.
3.A/C pump locking up.
4.Bad Alternator
5.Bad fan clutch or water pump

You should go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan of your cars computer.

Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area

Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.

The alternator has an occasional noise. what is wrong with that

Dear Rockin Alternator........The alternator having an occasional noise? Like either a bearing growl or brush whine? It's very feasibly for this kinda noise to come and'll start doin it more often when it decides to fail completely on you....don't wait till then. What happens is there's a sealed bearing on these alternators that never gets serviced....obviously...and when the little bit of road **** or water falls victim to being sucked in every now and then that causes bearing failure over time. It doesn't really take a whole lot at all...also be sure to check your belt and tensioner when ya replace this alternator......unless you feel like doin twice the amount of work...... I HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Sluggish loss of power and popping noises from engine

Clean the distributer cap in the inside, it has water in it thus causing all the noises and the back fire.
