You have a loose belt or it is glazed. The reason why it quites down after a while is because the belt heats up, and cause better grip on the pulley. Solution: replace belt and tighten properly. If the problem persist, then it is the the idler bearing that is going bad. If it is equiped with that.

93 Nissan altima, high pitched whirring noise upon starting the vehicle. Continues when clutch engaged and driving. Just replaced a part which when you press the clutch down it connects to a cylinder...


sounds like you had your clutch slave replaced. also I see that you said it doesnt make noise when you push the clutch to the floor, so usually thats the throw out bearing, its inside the transmission. the transmission has to come apart from the engine. the check engine light could be either from the transmission getting a fault, or the oil inside the cap is causing an electrical issue. so you need a throw out bearing and a new distributor. stanzas good for a couple more trips and thats it.

Ford sport trac, 4.0 dry start , and then continue ticking sound ,ive been told timimg chain

how many miles on the vehicle? does the noise quieten down when the engine RPMs come up? timing chain is very likely if you have over 150,000 miles. lifter noise is a more common problem. the lifters will tend to quieten down as the RPMs come up due to more oil pressure.

Nissan suny fb14 bolt holding engine mounting on left side broke and damaged hole.Thread and mounting on chasis damaged and needs replacement. please suggest what needs to be done. also need to know part...

That mount should be simple to order call the parts store. Fixing the broken bolts and hole is another whole problem. Without seeing what your talking about I can only guess. If the bolt hole is in an open flat part not the engine block. You can drill it and put a new nut on the other side of the plate. If however it's a hole in a part like the engine or frame where you can't put a nut on the other side of the part. You will need to reap the hole or cut new threads. Some holes you may not be able to reach and pulling the engine is or may be the only chance to fix the issue. Remove the part that needs to Be replace and clean up what you can. You may have to lift or jack the engine up to remove the mount. And sounds like you will need help if not have. Shop do the work for you.

Steering vibration

What are the condition of your tires? If their worn they can vibrate, also maybe have them high speed balanced. Most any shop can do that relatively cheaply. Also make sure your tires are speed rated for the speeds your driving.
Also keep in mind, especially with a 4 cylinder engine, the higher the RPM's, the more vibration your going to feel.
