Question about 2003 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Weak humm when driving over 35kmh.

Occationally a humming sound comes from the engine compartment of my 2006 Corolla. It does not change oitch with rev's or gears, does not change with clutch operation. The sound is as if by a faulty hydrolick-valve or something of that sort. I have the feeling that it is connected to the steering but this car does not have the system that makes the steering heavyer at higher speeds. The sound always dissapears as you slow down to about 20 m.p.h.

Possibly a wheel bearing or tyre noise from badly worn tyres
while driving in a straight line and noise is present change lanes or shimmy car left and right if noise gets worse or better wheel bearing problem
also if noise gets worse in normal town driving speed and gets less at higher freeway speeds check your wheel bearings

I have a 06 Toyota corolla and have changed the starter 3 times but it still won't start. When I turn the key I hear a single click and a humming sound

Do the following:
- Clean the battery terminals with Luke-warm water, dry them with dry cloth and fix them firmly.
- Check the battery to engine ground wire. Remove the engine side ground wire and clean it with sand paper to provide a good contact. Replace this wire with a thick one to hold the current during starting. Also battery to starter wire should be thick enough to hold the current during starting.
- Check the alternator output and the battery health.

2006 F150 5.4, 4x4, Lariat. Intermittent excessive humming/fan noise from engine compartment

Sounds like the fan clutch bearing is locked up. Running in direct drive will affect MPG drastically. Its a 2006 so its time to replace it. See if the fan blade will spin by hand with the engine off or if excessive wobble is present at the bearing.

Most likely, it isn't your tires. It could possibly be the drive train, transmission, clutch assembly, or the engine.

There is a squealing sound coming from the engine on start up and when sitting idling. Is it the serpentine belt or are there other reasons for this. Is that the only belt on a 2006 toyota corolla...

Check tension the drive belt(s) as slipping at low rev is a classic indication of this fault. In extreme conditions a rubber burning smell may be present. Replacement of drive belts is the 100% remedy and best option .

Loud annoying sound when driving over 35 mph

Check the fluid level and make sure. If the fluid level is not the problem, I would have someone do a complete check on the front end.

Loud humming noise

The power steering pump humms when it has gone bad.

You need to replace or service it incase there is a blockage due to dirt in the transmission oil compartment.

Costs not so much.

Rate this please.

My 05 Corolla stop running.

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. The first indication of a fuel pump issue is a hum or drone noise.
