Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type

Jaguar S Type 2001 . Few days ago I start hearing a constant noise while driving ( like someone is driving a mini scooter ), coming possibly from front right wheel. There is no noise when car is moving slowly , but past 30 km/h noise is coming and increasing proportionate to speed . I am suspecting wheel bearing problem . What do You think of it ? Thank You ! Victor

My 2001 Savana won't start. It turns over enough for the radio, headlights, and air to come on...but no engine turn over at all. We just bought this van two days ago. It started fine yesterday. We...

it`s possible that it could be a bad fuel pump if you have someone remove the gas cap and another person try to start the car you should hear a pump run,if not if they slide under the car and listen at the bottom of the fuel tank again you should hear a pump run.if not try hitting the tank hard while someone tries to start the car.if it starts then that is your problem.this is about the only to check the pump without a fuel pump gauge.if you find the pressure release valve and push on it you should get a very strong spray out past the valve while cranking.where the valve is depends on the type of engine is in the car but it is somewhere on the fuel rail at the intake manifold.and before you say it was fine yesterday that is the way pumps go bad i`ve had them work fine all day then stop and go into a store and come out and it won`t start

A couple of possibilities. You should consider changing thermostat and coolant. Also fan belt that drives waterpump should be replaced, and lastly new radiator/coolant cap (they do loose ability to hold pressure)

I have a 2002 Saab 9-3. A couple of days ago I started hearing a clicking sound coming from the engine area (don't know if its actually the engine, just in that area). At first, only made sound when...

If the 'clicking' sound changes with engine speed you need to check your oil, and pay attention to your temperature guage-it might be a lifter making noise and an oil change would possibly help. If it is a steady clicking noise, it might be a loud fuel injector, possible but not likely.

My 2000 outback just started making a disturbing clicking sound when I make right turns. I had it in the shop a few days ago and they rotated and balanced the tires. What's causing the click and could it...

doubtful it would be related to the balancing. that noise is likely a constant velocity joint failing. usually just called a cv joint. they are basically mini drive shafts on front wheel drive cars. you have a cv joint at each end of the shaft to allow the wheel to turn and go over bumps and still maintain power from the transmission.

Humming noise coming from left front tire, just started two days!

If the tires are wearing normal then its not the ball joint. If it worse while turning one way and quieter turning the other way it a wheel bearing. A ball joint does'nt make a constant noise.

check your wheel bearings, brakes and backing plate, since you said the noise is proportionate to speed i'm pretty sure its your wheel bearing, does the noise change when you turn (get louder or softer?) if so, i'm 98% sure its the wheel bearing

2001 Jaguar S-type won't start

Check if your transmission really is in park. I once had the same problem and it was fixed by moving the stick in and out of the park stand for a couple of times. Then the red light illuminating the "P" came on and i could start again.

Has to do with the transmission cable that tends to get a bit loose.

make sure the shifter and the linkage are greased, if the grease got washed off it could be the problem.
