A guess would be a broken throttle return spring near the throttle body. (follow the hose from the air cleaner back toward the engine--where it ends is the throttle body). Look for a small twisted wire cable that operates when the throttle is stepped on and a spring is supposed to pull the cable back after you take your foot off of the gas..

99 saturn loud revving sound in engine


Start the car and use a spray bottle to spray a bunch of water mist around the top back of the engine where the intake meets the head. If it starts to die you have an intake manifold leak. It\'s kind of a pain to change, but not really technical. Also, clean your throttle body and clean the idle air controller (IAC). Alos consider replacing the Throttle position sensor (TPS). Both are located on the back of the throttle body.

2005 pontiac sunfire 2.2 ecotec. when i put in drive i hear a loud bang and when driving has a quieter bang when shifts gears the motor mounts don't move much what could it be?


Sounds like transmission is low on fluid and gears are banging together when they shift. Probably should check the level and add to fill and hope that no damage has been done. I hope that helps you figure out your problem.

It sounds like the engine has a bad vacuum leak, they are very problematic for a leaking intake gasket. This usually would be accompanied with coolant loss, but not always. Other causes are loose air plentum snorkel (if air filter recently replaced) or a leaking vacuum hose. It could also be a sign of a computer problem starting. It would be best to have a technician or parts retailer scan it for you to narrow the problem down. The clunk noise maybe unrelated or possibly engine noise(like an intake issue), check the oil and coolant levels first.

I have a 2002 Pontica sunfire my air condition stopped working a couple of months ago it doesn't even put cold or heat air, it makes a weird nosie, i was wondering what it could be?


If the weird noise is like a coffee grinding machine, the a/c compressor is shot. If the noise goes away when you turn off the a/c, it confirms compressor trouble. If there is a screeching noise when you rev up the engine, it could be that the a/c belt has too much slack and is not turning over the compressor. Heat production and management has nothing to do with the a/c, it is a separate system,

2003 Pontiac Sunfire died on me, how/why?


If you hear a loud clank when you try to start it, but nothing turns, that is the starter trying to turn the engine, but the engine is locked up. If the timing chain/belt jumped, the engine would still spin.
