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.

hi,,

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.

My 2005 nissan altima will not start. I try to start it and it just makes a whirring noise.


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

If you have a Service Engine Soon light on, then most likely you need a cam or crank sensor. Those are the most common. I would have the car checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!

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.
