Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

My car's fan is making a low, bass-like sound. It gets louder as the fan's force is turned up. The noise doesn't seem to be eminating from the engine, but I could be wrong. What do I need to do?

Hi!!
You are right, the fan is got an electric motor that has nothing to do with the engine. I have an Intrigue and same thing happened last yr. Just replace the fan motor, no need to get the whole fan assembly. Anybody with a little mechanic inclination can replace this fan motor.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

2003 Nissan Xterra - Fan noise when a/c on


No that doesn't sound like the problem, the fan clutch locks up to cool the engine off due to the increased load of the AC system on the cooling system, so it locks up and gets much louder. If it didn't lock up the engine would overheat.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

I would suspect it is a wheel bearing issue, if it sounds similar to a baseball card in the spokes of a bicycle, stays somewhat same pitch just louder with speed that is where I would look. Does noise go away or change when making turns?

Noises from axles can be really deceiving. The sound is transfered throuh the transaxle and can resonate through the entire vehicle. The turning to the left thing makes it sound like a problem in the right wheel/axle area. Wheel bearings and axles tend to make worse noise when they are on the OUTSIDE of the turn. More of the vehicle weight is shifted to the outside due to centrifugal force. Thus, if the noise is louder when turning left, this puts the right axle to the outside of the turn and the most likely to be the source of the noise. (and vise-versa) The fact that the noise calms down while cruising makes me believe that it is not a wheel bearing. Wheel bearings can make more noise in turns, however, they usually make a "roaring" or loud "humming" noise that gets louder with speed. An axle is more likely to change or get louder according to engine load more than rotational speed. (Way worse while accelerating or climbing a hill) I would be taking a hard look at the right axle.

The car makes a howling noise while driving it


well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it

Hello, I see you have a trailblaber with a knocking noise. It sounds like you have an electric fan clutch issue. Believe it or not your vehicle has an electric fan clutch. It looks just like the older non-electric but if you look on the driver side of the fan shroud that is the wire connector you see. It is an exspensive part just for the clutch but thats exactly what you are describing. It doesn't get louder just fast with rpms. Please rate my answer, Thank you

Fan motor very loud at low speeds


sounds like something inside blower fan that should not be there , higher speed causes outward force inside so that whatever is in there is forced against the blades and therefore is not as loud
