Check for metal on the drain plug on the diff magnet as the noise you attempt to describe may be from a failing main pinion bearing in the diff. check the condition and tension of the alternator drive belt.

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy Cavalier not starting

When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump make a whiring noise as it dispenses the fuel. If there is no noise. the fuel pump is not working.

Have you checked the fuel shutoff inertia switch.?
Check your owners manual for location.

Grumbling noise in front drivers side of car.Worst at 30-40 mph.


Sound more like the wheel/hub bearing. An axle will usually make a clicking noise when turning, and be quiet when going straight. It probably wont break by may but it may get louder. Get it checked asap.

If this only happened AFTER you drove through the water, I'd say it had to do with the water. When ignition parts get wet, they short out and lose performance. Once they heat up and dry out, they will be back to normal. If you haven't had a tune-up in a while, I suggest you get one. Ignition wires are usually the first to give you problems when they get wet. Sometimes if it's really damp outside, you can have the same issue you did when you drove through the water.
