It's very possible that a mouse has gotten into the duct work and ended up trapped inside the blower motor fan. The now dead mouse would cause the blower fan to be out of balance & wobble considerably and make noise plus it would smell quite a bit. I see a handfull of dead mice in blower motor fans each year so it's not all that uncommon. The fix is to remove the blower motor and clean out all the debris. Most of the time the blower and fan are fine and can be reinstalled once they are cleaned up. Hope this helps you find your problem!

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

Why does my tacoma fan coil make a roaring noise


If the fan is connected to the water pump, it could be a fan clutch problem. The clutch is not supposed to kick in unless the engine is hot.

If the noise sounds like a roar or growl increasing with speed, may come and go depending on turning left or right then you have a wheel bearing that has failed ( example; loud on right turn=left bearing as it is now loaded)

Engine making noise, when accerlerrating and turning the same time


It is hard to determine what is wrong with so little information. Im just guessing, sounds like the power steering pump, Check the fluid level, if it is to low on fluid, it will make a growling noise. Also check the fluid to see if it is real dark, or smells burned by smelling the dipstick.

At speed, my car sounds like it is an airplane taking off.


Check the transmission fluid, if it is low add to correct level while running. If it smells burnt that's not good. Sounds like a bad transmission. Or check tail pipe to see if someone put a gag sqweeler in pipe. Do not burn your self getting the sqweeler out, it can be very hot.

1997 expedition after i go over 40 miles engine is growling shifting but a littlle sluggish


I have had similar complaints that turned out to be the Idle Air Control (IAC) solenoid. The solenoid can get a little weak and air coming in through the intake at certain speeds can cause it to start vibrating. It sets off a moaning sound that resonates through the intake ducts and can get VERY loud. Sometimes it almost sounds like a fog horn.

If this is the type of noise you are hearing, replacing the IAC will fix it.

Other than that, the only suggestion I have is to see if you can get it to make the noise while the vehicle is sitting still. Slowly accelerate the engine speed with the vehicle stopped and the transmission PARK to see if it will make the noise. If the vehicle has to be moving to make the noise, then that eliminates several possibilities like the IAC, fan clutch, pullies, etc.....things that operate the same whether the vehicle is moving or sitting still.

Power steering making loud noise/harder to turn wheel


Hello, from the sounds of it your power steering pump is going bad. Two things to check is one, pull off the cap and smell the fluid to see if it smells burnt. If it does you will need to change the power steering pump. Another thing to check is to make sure the belt is good and snug that runs the pump, the noice could be the belt slipping. You may need to tighten it or change it depending on how it looks. I'd check the belt first as that is the cheaper fix.
