You may want to check the bushings of your car. Check also the ends of the tie rod and the ball joints if they are loose and can be moved by hand. Otherwise they need replacing. Other than that the shocks could be the issue check if the car bounces too much when we apply pressure on each 4 corners of the car to test the shocks. Some vibrations especially at certain speeds may be caused by the tires and may need replacing or your wheel needs to be balanced.

2002 Honda Accord makes loud exhaust sounding noise


The O2 sensor could have come loose, also look around the area of the O2 sensor for any cracks in the pipe, look for black coloring on the pipe, this will indicate the leak area. As exhaust smoke is blackish and will coat the leaking area.

Vibration in rear end


There are several other things which can make a noise. The people you showed the car have the advantage of hearing or feeling the noise that we do not have a chance to do.

A catalytic noise can change with the engine RPM. You can rev up the engine in Park or Neutral and should be able to replicate the noise. If not, then you have a moving part making the noise.

Sometimes the Emergency brake material comes loose from the metal backing and jams inside the rear drum/rotors. It will cause vibration when pulling away from a stop, and eventually will grind into powder.

Rear axle differential clutches. There are friction disks inside some types of rear-ends. A special lube additive makes these work. Sometimes a refill of additive and lube can make marginally performing units more quiet.

U-joints can make noise and vibrate. Its another moving part noise.

The fan clutch can also make noise and vibration. The A/C compressor and compressor clutch bearing can make noise. The A/C clutch operates intermittently depending on pressure and temperature.temperature.

Rattling noise sportage 2008


Sorry for the late reply but, no, it is not related to a loose heat shield. It is a louder rattling sound more like a loose bearing vibrating inside either the transmission or the clutch assembly. Only between 1600 and 1900 rpm. and it is not present under ou over these rpm. The rattle desappear when I lock the 4X4. Dealer is out of solution!!

My 2004 montecarlo gets a loud vibration noise that sounds like comming from dash but cannot hear noise from outside but is so loud that i cant hear the radio with the windows up and does it only driv


This may sound radical, but while driving on an open road with no traffic, put the car in neutral and turn the motor off. If the sound goes away, the problem is in the motor or trans. If the problem persists, its probably a wheel bearing or something stuck in your wheel. Car will restart in neutral, and just drop it back into drive.

My 2008 corolla altis with 40,000 km on it has a constant vibration which can be felt thru the steering wheel. This vibration is most felt at around 2800rpm. Whether the car is stationary or on the...


The engine vibration could be due to the following reasons:
1. Dynamic unbalance of any rotary part like bent shaft, misaligned engine pulley or worn out serpentine belt.
2. Defective, broken or stretched engine mounts.
3. Muffler or silencer pipe is touching the body from under the car.
4. Loose or missing nuts or bolts in the engine bay area (like loose compressor or alternator bolts).
5. Maladjusted bonnet.
6. Front bumper loose nuts and bolts.
7. Dynamic unbalance of the flywheel.

Hyundai elantra 2002 something loose under the car


Need more info.
Does it do it in gear, in park?
Is it constant?
Try checking the heat shield at the catalytic converter. These sometimes come loose and make a rattling noise when the engine is running.

Vibrating noise coming from either the engine or underneath


When the constant velocity joints are worn out. this is what u ussually get.

car vibrates if one or both are worn out. and vibration will increase as speed increases.

car will make a popping or tapping or clicking sound when steering.

Or they might just need lubrication too.
CONSTANT VELOCITY JOINTS ARE LOCATED JUST UNDER THE SHOCKS.....IT LOOKS LIKE A WORM LIKE PLASTIC COVERING A SHAFT.


hope this helps XD
