Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox. Last night I started it up and there was a loud tapping or pecking noise under the hood.And it kelp acting like it was trying to die. It did this for a long time, until I backed out of the drive and headed down the road. I was on my way to have someone to see what the sound was, which took me less than 10 minutes to get there. But it done quit a little ways down the road. So they didn't know what was causing it..because it didn't do it any while I was there. Just wondering if anyone knows what is causing this?

Could be something that when warmed up is fine , i'd check the engine oil level and the autobox fluid level (i presume its auto trans ).if these are ok perhaps you could leave the vehicle with the mechanic overnight so that he can start vehicle from 'cold' ,this is a recognised procedurer with this type of fault , suggest having tha OBD codes read as well as could pinpoint faulty sensor/switch but i'm sure your mechanic would have this in mind to do anyway, keep me posted if you wish

CHECK THE OIL LEVEL, IT MAY BE LOW AND WHAT YOU HEARS IS A VALVE TAPPING.

SOURCE: Ran out of oil while driving-

No not siezed, if it was siezed it would not turn over.
You have "Trown a Rod" or "Spun a Rod Bearing"
The more you let it run the more damage will be done to the engine block. It may still be possible to rebuild but start it again until it is diagnosed.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS 3.4L battery exploded

First, I hope you diluted the battery acid with a little water. Most batteries create explosvie gas (hydrogen). If it isn't vented well, the gas could build up and a spark from even a dirty terminal can set off the gas. Are you saying that you've determined that Chevy Equinox cars are prone to explode their batteries? A sealed battery, such as the Optima, releases no vapors. Such a battery would probably solve your problem.

SOURCE: I have a punto 55 M reg

ell,
ley's do some diagnostics first. Let's see if the oil leak is addecting the engine performance an verify the oil is coming from the head..
check the valve cover gasket first..If there is oil all around the head, then its more likely the gvalve cover gasket. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2001 Buick Regal just dies going down the road but starts again

If your car dies suddenly and otherwise runs fine, the root of the problem is an electrical problem or electronics/computer related. Even though it could be a fuel shut off that caused the car to stop. The "brain" controls ignition and fuel thus my assessment. Have the codes read to see if a problem is indicated with the computer or sensors. Since it is an intermittant problem, it is possible your code reads will still be normal. Check all connections if you don't get a coded problem. Good Luck!

Beeping noise under hood after shutting off engine, sounds like it may be near the drivers side front tire


Did you get an answer to this question? Our 2014 Equinox is "beeping" from under the hood after shutting it off. Also seems to have started only during COLD weather. No it doesn't have anything to do with steering or suspension components. It is an audible beep noise or chirp noise. Thanks in advance.

I have a 2003 Ford Focus SE sedan. Just last night while driving for about a little over an hour I noticed what sounded like air rushing out in harmony with the engine turning over, and it is really loud,...


you may have a vacuum leak or a restriction in the exhaust system check around under the hood to see if you can narrow down the noise. a restriction in the exhaust causes the excess exhaust to push back threw and make a whooshing noise. hope this helps
