This noise usually indicates lifter or timing chain wear which can indicate a lack of oil or regular oil changes.so start by checking the oil level and changing the oil at regular intervals 'lack of which can lead to costly internal engine repairs.

My 2004 Dodge Stratus Makes a Whining/Squealing Noise When Idling


With your Stratus idling, look under the hood. You should be able to find the source of the noise. It could be the belt or something driven by the belt

My car is making an awful groaning grinding noise noise when it starts. The noise stops after it starts. Put my foot on the brake it starts again. put thr car in reverse no problem put it in,drive it...


It's your exhaust mounts or broken exhaust bolts. It does it in drive st idle n under load because the motor is sitting in rubber mounts made to dampen vibration. Therefore the motor tilts to the left in reverse pulling the exhaust away from your under carraige, and to the right in drive causing the loose exhaust to vibrate against something. Check your heat shields also. They fall apart n do the same noise. Piece of cake.

When I first start my truck I can hear a loud rattling sound coming from the back. Hear this sound also when I am in idle. Don't notice it when I pick up speed.


Check to see if one of your brackets holding the exhaust pipe has come loose. That'll make a rattling sound - especially if it towards the end by the tailpipe. When you're accelerating - more air is forced thru your exhaust at a faster rate, so it's not moving as much as when you're sitting still and the truck is just at an idle with less air/exhaust moving thru the tailpipe. If it's only making the noise while the truck is stationary & the noise stops one the truck is moving - that pretty much rules out anything to do withe the drive-train or suspension. You are sure the noise is from the back & not coming from under the hood? If under the hood - check your oil level ASAP.

My car is makeing a tapping noise under the hood. it does'nt make the noise when i'm driving at a normal speed. what could it be?


Sounds like a vacuum leak. Raise the hood while your engine is idling and see if you can pinpoint the area. Chances are, you'll find a vacuum line with a hole or loose connection.
