After a alternator replacement ,the first place I would be looking at is the drive belt for the alternator . The noise described may be from a flap of the belt as it is breaking up. Check the condition and tension as the first step.

SOURCE: Loud engine or Muffler

hi. if the muffler is truly cracked, it will release a loud, unfiltered, noise during acceleration and idling as well. it will rattle as well. i recommend replacing the muffler ASAP.

Concerning the fill up at 7-11, there may have been a high water content that was in this gas stations tank and, this was transferred to your tank during the filling. the Lucas treatment will remove the water out of the tank and correct any damage that may have occurred,if any..

hi,

call the toyota dealership and ask to talk to a mechanic in the service department or find the fuse panel and begin pulling accessory fuses that have to deal with your navi and stereo system. pull the fuses one at a time and replace them untill you figure out which accy is malfunctioning..

Sounds like you lost the charge from the alternator.
When the alternator quits charging your battery light comes on and your car will run on battery power only...and only for a short time.
As the battery gets its stored energy used up...everything that is electrical will get slow or dim.

I'd check your alternator for proper operation and its drive belt...

Hope this helps...

Purchased a new battery for 2003 Infiniti G35 6 weeks ago and went to get in my car tonight after not driving it for two days and now it won't start. What is going on?


Sounds pretty simple. If your starter is not at fault. you may want to check the alternator. If the reason for the battery change originally was due to the battery dying then the alternator could be the culprit.

Why would my battery light stay on my 2002 escape


The light indicates that the battery is receiving insufficient charge voltage from the alternator. Take the car to an autoparts store and have the alternator output checked. Most parts stores will do the test for free. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

93 LX 5.0 replaced battery, ran fine then would not start


sounds like you have a good battery, get the car started put a voltmeter to wire connected to the back of your alternator. if you have at least 13.25 volts you have a good unit if any lower replace the alternator
the click sound you are hearing comes from your relay it is getting low voltage from the battery. because the battery has no juice caused by a bad alternator


hope to help shack

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts


The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
