Hello,

By the "right" side I'm assuming you mean the passenger's side. It's a good habit to get into to refer to the sides as passenger and driver. It leaves no grey area. Anyway, I digress. With the engine off, open the hood and see if you can turn the alternator easily about a half turn in either direction. I'm telling you this because these engines were notorious for breaking the harmonic balancer. At idle it sounds like there's something loose and rattling but, when accelerating the noise goes away.

Check it out and if it is what I said, you'll need special tools to replace it. There are other parts that should be check and replaced if necessary with this repair.

Good luck,
Vinnie

SOURCE: raddle when go over bumps

If Jay's tips don't pan out, consider having your shocks checked since these can produce a loud rattle if the seals are blown.
A preliminary check can be made using the 'bounce' test. Pressing down and letting up on a fender several times in succession until the car is bobbing good. When you let go on a downstroke, the car should come up once, settle and move no more. If it kind of fades, with several shorter bounces, the shock is bad.

If it's a growling noise,it's probably a wheel bearing.If it's a clicking noise,it's likely a cv joint,good luck,

SOURCE: 2004 chevy impalaroad noise until turning right then it goes away

could be the left fr wheel brg. but to be SURE, lift up car, spin the wheel, when you are spinning the wheel, grab the coil spring on thr strut. it should fell smooth,compare both sides, if its a wheel brg you will feel the roughness through the spring. a lot of mechanics will even replace the wrong brg, but this method nails it every time. ; )

Where is the solenoid?


If you mean the starter solenoid,it's on the front of the engine(Front wheel drive?)under the exhaust manifold.Toward the right side as you look from in front of the car.
If it's Rear WD,it's on the passenger side,fairly low on the motor.
Either way,it's mounted on the starter motor.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

2003 trailblazer makes winding noise when i accelerate.


it has to do with the clutch on the cooling fan. I have had to have mine fixed at about 50 k and it is acting up again at 87k. This tends to go away on mine as the engine heats up.

Car hissing sound


The noise maybe the p/s pump fluid return,GM had some problem with this but nothing bad. GM makes a resticter that goes in the return line of the pump, it will slow the fluid down going back in the pump stopping the hissing sound.
