Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 2006 Elantra engine starts making diesel like noise as the car gets to 10mph when slowing and stops just as the car stops.

My 2006 Elantra makes diesel like noise, usually as we slow to stop, just as we stop, the sound stops also. Some days it happens more than others. Temperature seems to make no difference, nor do different oil and/or filter types. Turning on/off the air, nor moving the transmission into neutral natter, Because it only happens between 10 and 1 mph, I can't check it out while it is stopped. Any ideas?

Jack it up and put it on jack stands then start it up and put it in gear that way you can listen to where the noise is coming from, i think that it is probably the cv axles

I HAVE A 1999 Dodge Caravan, driving along 10mph engine stopped running, would not start after stopped. Replaced crankshaft, camshaft sensor, coil pack, fuel pump, checked fuses, relays, still no start,...

Did your Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on? If so, there is an error code (Diagnostic Test Code or DTC) stored in your Caravan's onboard computer. Have the code read and interpreted, and you can google the results to see which system triggered the code. If no light came on, you may want to check your fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor and breaker points/inductive pickup (depending on how the engine is equipped). Other possibilities include carburetor or throttle body injectors malfunctioning. Many possible causes, but the DTC route is easiest to check. Good luck.

When going over bumps even at a speed of 10mph we get a rattle noise in the front end of our 2007 hyundai elantra. it started at about 46,000 miles and it was just on the right side and now its on both. ...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check the suspension of the vehicle. Check the arms, rods, axle, boots, ect. You may have something loose down there. If this is the case, you would probably feel it at highway speeds also. You may have something in the engine loose also. Maybe a tool left or something loose. You need to try and pinpoint the exact location of the noise. If it is associated with both sides of the vehicle, you need to jack the car up and check the front end suspension. It can be a host of things.

Have the battery checked out, it can drain within minutes and it really is gone if you have dead cells that can't recharge. It will make your car click when trying to start or it could turn over slow or not make any sound. Good Luck.

06 elantra not getting hot air while stopped.

if your sure the radiator is full,the only difference between highway speed and slowing to a stop is engine RPM's.
That means the water pump is not turning as fast,
It's possible the water pump is going bad,you should ask a Hyundai dealer if there are any TSB's on this problem.
