My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

I have 1997 GMC Suburban. It will crank but when you have it in gear it goes no where when you press the gas and makes a loud noise. Was told it might be the flywheel. I am not a mechanic and don't have...


If it's not a transmission problem, which is usually the case, I would check to make sure your drive shaft is still connected and that the u-joints are in good shape. If you can possibly see under the truck while someone presses the gas, you can see if the drive shaft is turning. If the drive shaft is spinning and its still not engaging, that loud noise may very well be the gears grinding/broke inside the back axle (rear differential). Just a few things to check, hope it helps in some way!

Vibration in the drive train at 40 mph in my 1993 Ford 150


I would check the driveshaft universal joints and the play in the yolk joints where the driveshaft exits the transmission and where it enters the differential.
It could be the preliminary vibration caused by the deterioration in a universal joint, forewarning you that it's on the way out. Good Luck Vern

Bad vibration in truck, not so much in the wheel but it's hard to tell. Starts around 30 to 40 mph and continues till 50 mph. A mechanic friend told me it may be the u-joints and/or (drive shaft) hanger...


that was good advice, it does sound like a u-joint, on these trucks the best way to check the joints is to remove the drive shaft, and flex each joint by hand to make sure each has free movement.

I have a 66 mustang when i drive at 45 miles per hour, it makes a grinding noise and shakes. what can it be?


Could be a bad universal joint. I have a '65 Mustang, once when I installed the drive shaft, I put the rear u-joint into the axle slightly off-center. It would shake rather badly at about 45 MPH, but was mostly smooth above 50 or below 40. I thought it was a wheel balance problem, but it was just the driveshaft being slightly off-center.
