I believe your carrs makes the noise when in motion. hence it is important to identify the place from where the noise is heard. if it is from the fron please use a jack and life up your car. check the rotation of the wheels,if noisy then check on the wheel bearings, brake linings, pads, discs. opne and confirm check the front suspension for damage to the links, the shock absorbers,the bushes that support the arms, and for any chassis damage that is scrapping against the tyres. Do the same for the rear side. Please also try to press down the car for any squeaking. locate the noise and change the part which could be as above. However is you think that the noise is coming from the gear box/ differencial, then it might pose a bigger problem, it could be low oil in your gear box, failure of the counter wheels, the gear drives or shafts. if is important to run the drive while in jack. I hope you get this helps. Good day. .

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.

I was at a stop light and something under the hood just popped and when i tried to accelerate the car wouldnt move


Did it make a grinding noise when you put it in park? From what little information I have to go on. I'm going to guess that one of the Constant Velocity (CV) joints on one of the axles broke.

Strange noises under hood...


this is one of those things that can drive an auto mechanic nuts. probably start with two people if the noise only happens with the hood shut it could be even worse.in these cases it may be worth it to talk to a dealer.maybe this is a somewhat comman problem.if it makes the noise with soom regularity with the hood open,have someone try to get a better feel for where the noice is coming from.these are not simple to find=effort.

Noise ... raddle


When the engine is cold, go under the car and try to shake the exhaust system at the approximate spot you hear the rattle coming from. It is most likely a heat shield for the exhaust, or a broken (rusted through) hanger for the exhaust making the noise you describe. You can probably correct it with a wire or couple of screws to secure the shield, or replace a hanger.
