When I accelerate the engine sounds like a diesel. Something like a grinding noise. It also hesitates when starting off. I don't know if the 2 things are related. Gerald

It sounds like you have no oil pressure. If it ran this way for long, the engine is shot. Does the oil pressure light come on when you turn on the key without starting? If yes, Disconnect oil pressure sending unit and short wire to ground. Does the light come on? If yes, Connect a mechanical oil pressure gage to the hole where the sending unit plugs in to. Do you have at least 30 PSI at hot idle? By now I'll betyou have a no answer. I need more info...

1987 6.9 diesel. Why did it jerk a little bit then idle really high without any acceleration?


I used to have the same year truck. Usually a diesel is more simple and mechanical versus electronic ignition and controls. My initial thought is a vacuum leak possibly trouble in the mechanical vacuum pump. But grinding when going to Park is a new one to me, unless transmission is masking noise when in gear.

About all I can suggest is to use a water spray bottle and spray around the vacuum pump, engine seams and even what you might find by the transmission. (While the engine is running.)

Also some 4x4 hubs and transfer cases use Vacuum to work. A vacuum line leak could jam a gear positioner in between 2 settings and cause grinding of gears.

I have a 1997 golf gti and when i **** from 1st to 2nd something hits the ground i dont know what it is. Secondlly its making a bit of a grinding noise from the exhast manifold almost sounds like a diesel...


Sounds like when they replaced the engine some of the clamps and mountings should have been replaced as well. The clutch should certainly have been replaced. First to second is almost always a big change under acceleration so it is probably an engine mounting that is making the noise as sounding like a big clunk, the connection between the exhaust manifold and the exhaust pipe is probably where the other noise is coming from. It is a spring loaded joint and does take a hammering when one of the mountings go bad.

2000 outback AT reverse gear grind/grunt


i would inspect the trans mount it may be bent,reverse is a big strain on the drivetrain and if it's not aligned properly this could be your problem,look for the post on the cross member that has arubber bushing on the bottom,if it's not centered its hitting the mount as for the steering column noise i'm thinking this noise maybe the clock spring this is part of the air bag system,the spring can be weak and in turn rubs on casing causing noise, believe it or not the engine noise your describing is a normal operating noise!
