It can be the alternator bearings going out,remove the belt to check the pulley,spin by hand to see if the sound is still there,if so,replace it before it locks up.

1988 Toyota Camry LE clicking noise during acceleration


start with premium gas or injector cleaner, could be a low octane ping. this may be hard to diagnose with out hearing the noise so the other thing i would have you do is remove the belts and run the engine. sometimes when a bearing in an alternator, idler pulley, a/c compressor or belt tensioner goes bad they can make a clicking noise. try to listen if the noise is coming from the belt area, the transmission area or some other spot. spin all the pulleys with the engine off and wiggle them to see if any are bad

Adjustment for rpm - 2007 montana


Please don\'t try to adjust your rpms. Its computer controled and it just won\'t be good at all. Not to mention hard for your drive line when you shift into gears.

Just fix your heat, its the best option.

We had someone put a new water pump in and now it has got a whining noise! It didn't do it until he put it back together! It doesn't sound like a bad water pump! What could be the problem!


Start car and use a stethoscope.
Start car put car in park and and listen for the noise by placing the scope on any item you believe the noise is coming from. if this does not help you confirm where the noise is coming from do the following:
Do you still hear whinning? put car in park after start up and listen for noise.Do the same in neutral. What do you hear? Drive vehicle in all gears. If you hear whinning in all gears its the oil pump inside the converter. Have this verified by a transmission repair shop.

A strange clicking noise in front when vehicle is moving


If this is a US production vehicle it is not a 2005.
Production stopped on the Axiom in 2004.
If you have a 2004 Axiom with a 3.5 Direct Injection engine it maybe due to low oil level. Check the oil and make sure it is at the correct level. Low oil level can cause the camphasers to rattle and cause engine damage. The phasers are only activated when the vehicle is in gear so you may not hear the noise when in park or neutral. Also maybe caused be loose campulley bolts. Severe engine damage may result if this is the case. Have it inspected soon to avoid damage.

97 neon wont start i just hear a clicking noise in the relay area


1st check the connections at the battery for corrosion, clean and make sure you have a tight connection. Bring the battery to a parts store, they will check it's condition for free. It may be bad, and all you need to do is replace it. If they find it's not charged fully, bad connections at cables or alternator may be to blame.

97 Lexus Es300 noise under the hood by alternator


mcdevito75 here, If you have 1 continuous belt on the engine (serpentine) then the belt could be worn or the tension pully holding the belt tight could be going bad. No noise in Neautral or Park as increased engine speed in these gears over rides the worn part and thus no noise. On a cold engine examine the belt, look for frays / wear from where the belt rides the pullys. If the belt is 2 years old, Change it.

Gear shift


Do you hear a clicking sound coming from the shifter area everytime you hit the brake pedal, while the vehicle is is "P" park position?? There should be a clicking sound right by the shifter. That's the shifter lock solenoid. If that's not clicking you will not get the car out of park. Let me know what you found.
