Question about Jaguar XKR

1 Answer

While driving over a bumpy road I hear a rumbling sound somewhere in the center of the engine compartment. I visited the dealer 5 time and they claim it is the brake system and I just have to live with it. Strange thing is however that at low speed and turning the steering wheel also cracking sound appears. I believe its some how related. What could be the problem? Thank you in advance. Adrian

1 st of all for a Dealership to tell you you have to live with it is beyond "Unprofessional Advice" .
sounds as if a possible crack in the frame or brake s will not cause a rumbling sound it has to be either wheel bearings or internal engine ...i cannot determine this just without being able to see /hear it for myself ....i would seek professional help obviously this dealership is of no use to you did you obtain the vehicle from them ..if so they most likely know the issue at hand and arre awaiting the warranty to expire

You need to have all the suspension components checked for excessive wear. Also check the wheel bearing for noise.

What does it mean when I come to a comelete stop and my car rumbles.


it rumbles as you are about to stop, well that depends.

if there is a vibration AS you are applying the brakes, and about to reach a stop, it could be that your brake rotors need machining, or "turned"; however, in this case, you would also hear a grinding, as well as feel the grinding through your foot.

there is also a "rumbling" associated with a strut mount gone bad; however, this is more of an audible clanking, and is also audible when driving slow on a bumpy road, and not really specifically in the process of stopping.

for either of these, please stop using your radio, and possibly open the windows, to better describe the sound.

IF the car shakes when sitting at a stoplight, or such, please watch your rpm gauge (tachometer), and see if the idle speed is exceptionally low or erratic.

if this is the case, it may be that your throttle positioning sensor, mass airflow sensor, or the like, is malfunctioning, and is giving a warm engine a fuel/air mix appropriate for a cold engine.

2004 ford freestar rumbling noise as I drive down the road at about 45-60mph - it sounds and feels a bit like I hit a rumble strip but it is coming from the engine


Sounds like a half shaft. Reach around behind each wheel and see if there is play in the shaft that leads from the wheel to the transmission. There should be no play. Other possibility is a bearing hub. Jack up car, grab the tire at 9 and 3 o'clock. Shake wheel if there is movement not from the tie rod then it is the bearing hub.

Front suspension noise-dull rattle-thumping sound,bumpy roads


look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over.
Good luck

Sounds like a broken shock rattle orstrut loose when you go over bumpy roads dealer says front end is tight but noise is still there driving me crazy


Check engine mounting rubbers or bushes. If worn or loose they can cause noises like this. Shouldn't happen in an 08 though. Check things like the battery strap is tied down and the fuse box cover is secured.

H,week ago noticed a sound coming possibly somewhere from the front of the car.Usually u can hear it bang when you drive through uneven road surface.Sound is like to metal things hitting each other or like...


Does it happen when you accelerate and decelerate? If so, it might be a motor mount or transmission mount. If it only happens on bumpy roads, check to see of the battery is held down tight, otherwise I'm at a loss.

Front end Rumble Simalar to worn Ball joint Noise


the problem with your truck is your knuckle bearings. I just replaced them on a friends truck and it sounds like the same problem. Just look on the inside of the front hub close to where the front axel attaches to the hub. If the seal is gone you will have a ring inside the hub on the axel shaft.
