2008 santa fe front noise


Is it a "wine" noise that gets louder when you rev it up? Sounds like an idler pulley. Is it a 3.3L motor?

Jeep 360 rattle sound at idle in park


it could be a wrist pin, and im not sure if those amc's had hydraulic lifters but sometimes with old lifters when the oil pressure is lower at an idle the lifters arnt filling up all the way so they develope a little valve lash, and when the rpms are raised the oil pressure raises and fills the lifters. you could try chasing the noise down with an automotive stethoscope.

I have a 2000 Dodge Caravan, 3.0L V6, Automatic w/ A/C. There is a distinct whirring sound coming from the mechanicals (engine/transmission) and changes when it shifts. At take off, intermittantly, then...


The change in sound after a shift shows that it's something attached to the engine, which is driven directly by it. Change in RPM of the engine effects change in the sound you hear. Whirring noises which change with engine RPM are normally things like Power Steering pump, or Alternator.

Start the engine and let it idle, and listen with a piece of fuel line in your ear to see where the noise is the loudest. You'll be able to tell where it's coming from that way, and know exactly what it is.

I'd suggest checking your fluids. If the noise is getting louder, you could be doing damage to the PS system, if that's what the problem actually is.

Another option is the torque converter, although much less likely than the former.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

Our 2001 Santa Fe has developed a roar. I thought


If your noise is a low pitch rumble that gets louder the faster you go, it likely is a wheel bearing that is the cause. Another sign that the noise is from a wheel bearing is if the noise tends to get louder when steering one direction at a steady speed, and quieter when steering the other direction. A transmission noise does not change with the steering.
