It's usually either a belt or lubrication issue. Still get the oil checked.If its low it can be the possibility,also if the oil is getting leaked,then oil is low causing this ,otherwise its a worn out ,belt noise or the belt needs to be lubricated to get it solved.Also check the idler pulley nut.If its got loose then tighten it and check.If still the noise the replace belt. Check out.keep updated.thanks.

1998 Camry Reverse noises


this really sounds like a broken motor mount / trans mount. An easy way to check is have someone sit in the car and shift into reverse, then to neutral, then to drive. Have your "assistant" do this repeatedly with the hood up, parking brake ON and foot FIRMLY applying the brakes while you watch the motor move. if you can see a big difference in "jump" between reverse and drive, that is a bad mount. The motor will lift or "jump" higher on the broken mount side. if your really not sure then try a gentle power brake in each direction.

Upon start up there is a loud squeal. It continues while driving however when placed in neutral it quietly goes away. Recent oil change. Fluids good. 180,000 miles. Still occurs when a/c is off.


Try to isolate the noise. See if it's coming from the front of engine or transmission. Also try to see if it's on the left side or right side of engine. Once you have narrowed it down you then should be able to pinpoint the problem area. eg altenator, power steering pump, idler pulley etc.

Hi, i have a toyota fielder 1.8cc with a some problem which has now come up. when i switch on esp in the morning after staying overnight, it produces some really annoying sound from the engine. when the...


If it is a 'squealing' noise it's probably the alternator/power steering drive belt. Before you turn on the engine in the morning, lightlt smear or spray some oil on the inside of the drive belt to lubricate it. If the squealing stops/disappears, then that's the fault ..

That squealing noise can be caused by an incorrectly tensioned belt, or a worn belt. Replacement is the only option.

The other frightening sounds can best be described as 'rattles' or 'tapping'. When a car stands overnight all the oil drains back into the sump (oil/pan).

There are two things (usually) that can be cause the rattle/tap:
1. Because the oil hasn't been pumped around the system, at start up worn big end bearings can rattle and tap on the crankshaft until the oil 'fills the gaps'. The tapping/rattling goes away as the engine warms and oil is pumped around the lubricating system.

A 'bottom end tapping' is a symptom of worn big ends (they are bearings at the bottom of the piston and fit around the crankshaft).

2. A rattle/tapping from the top of the engine can either be a worn camshaft or 'lazy tappets'. Again, when the engine warms and oil gets to the camshaft and tappets (also called 'hydraulic lifters) the noise will disappear.

If your car has this rattling/tapping noise - identify whether it is coming from just under the rocker box (ie the camshaft/tappets..) or the bottom end of the engine (big end bearings).

If the noise is coming from the top of the engine, try an oil change with a can of thick 'additive' included. A lazy tappet (lifter) isn't too much to worry about. A worn camshaft will affect the performance of the engine, though continue to do its job. An oil change with an additive included may help in quitening things down.

A bottom end tap/rattle (or 'knock') - the sooner that is sorted out the better.

My 1999 moutaineer has a chime which goes off after I start the car. It doens't sound exactly like the seat belt chime. It continues for 5 minutes, even when all seat belts are fashened. Any ideas? Nothing...


sound like Neutral switch warning.

Check if your reverse light works.
If not replace it and you will probably be changing your neutral switch. unless you change it before it goes.

Incidentally when it goes the car will not be able to be put in gear once started.
It will be able to drive only if it is started in Neutral.
Good luck.
