    Could be many things, but to be clear, changes with the speed of the car, or the speed of the engine?

Also check the driverside driveshaft u-joints and then wheel bearing too before tearing into the transmission

Noise in engine compartment - chirping, then loud squeal


try having the radiator cap checked for performance. It is not in the engine as any change in rpms would cause a corresponding change in frequency and volume of the noise. However if there is a problem in the cooling system ( leaking head gasket etc) then as the pressure builds up and escapes from under the radiator cap it will give the same affect as a bad tap washer in the household plumbing. Turn it on slightly and the water squeals as it comes out ( tap washer vibrating from pressure fluctuations. I would suggest that a coolant pressure test and a compression test may be in order to eliminate what I have suggested.

Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

I have a loud humming noise comming from the front end of my 1996 pontiac sunfire constantly help please.


Does the humming noise reduce or change in pitch slightly when turning a corner?
Most likely a wheel bearing failure. Also, when one wheel bearing on one side fails, the other is not often far behind. I often therefore replace in pairs.

Without hearing the noise, it is hard to diagnose. If you replaced the bearings and the noise level is correlated with the speed of the vehicle - I'd look at the wheels/tires. They may be out of balance or you could have a radial shift in one of the tires. Rotate the back tires to the front and front to back. See if that changes the pitch or noise level.

I have a new noise on my 2000 DeVille and it does vary when I vary the speed. It sounds like a fan motor buzz, but gets faster when I accelerate. Any idea what this could be? I first thought it was coming from the speedometer section on the dash, but when I listened closer it seemed to be under the hood close to the windshield.

When driving it makes a loud roaring sound, thought it had bad brakes but after they had been replaced the sound was still there


Is the roar coming from the front tire area? If so, you may need bearing hubs. You need to be absolutely positive where the noise originates from and if turning corners or different speeds affect the noise. If you hold a steady..say 50 mph and shift into N and coast does the noise stop, if so, you may be looking at a tranny prob.

1998 Ford Mondeo GLX, loud humming sound, front driver side.


Most likely it's a wheel bearing going out.., If you turn to the right, or the left when driving the noise will change pitch. Been there done that.....
