If you are getting an airplane noise, or a fan noise, it is probably a wheel bearing, and should still be under warranty.

My 2001 Mustang 3.8 makes a lot of noise at high speeds. Even at an idle, the noise is noticeable and seems to be coming from the alternator/pully area. I have replaced both items and the belt itsel


You've looked at 2 things it drives, follow that round all units driven by the drive belt. Is it engine speed related? If so what can you hear under the hood when you rev up? If its not too difficult can you run the engine for a minute without the belt fitted. Don't run for long because of overheating. Listen then without all the bits rotating.

Noise in front of vehicle


check if you have a viscous fan hub. If you have it will be that the hub has started working while you were stationary to raise up the fan speed to assist in cooling and when you rev up to take off the increase rpm increases the fan noise and when the air is passing through the radiator the hub cuts out and the fan noise goes.

If there is bubbles occurring even inside the top part of the radiator (where you have the coolant put in), you may have a leak on your head gasket. You may be loosing coolant through the engine.

My 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a clicking noise from dash broad as i decrease in speed. Stops once vehicle has slowed down


Have you checked that the speedo and the rev counter still give steady readings, if you can notice a slight "judder " on either then that is where the noise is coming from. Must be one or the other is speed related.

I just purchased an 03 Trailblazer LS 4x4, the salesman said it has an electric fan, which I'm not familiar with. Is it supposed to be loud when accelerating? It does seem to "shift" down as the vehicle...


Siunds more like a visous clutch fan. It's bolted tho the water pump hub and belt driven. Electric fans are attached or mounted against the radiator and are driven by an ekectric motor that is relay controlled. Electric is quieter, yet can be heard when they kick in. Only because it is at an idle or low speed.VC fans can be very noisey depending onwhar srage of engagement it's in. Both fans are negated by the ram air effect at speeds above 35 mph. If your fan is noisey throughout the acceleration and shift range and variable levels of noise are exoerienced in down sgifting, You have a viscous clutch fan.

I would suggest having your universal joints checked out , sounds like a bad joint or bearing somewhere in the rear end, if you can get your speed up to about 50, put your rav in neutral and let it coast if it stops vibrating, it most likely is your problem
