Question about 2001 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer


HELLO, when accelerating there is a roar under...down low, sounds like under about where the driver's feet are......can hear it better when starting from a stop....the harder you push on the gas pedal the louder the roar....if you take off easy there is no sound or roar. even when the roar is happening, there is no shutter in the steering wheel, or front end at all. to me it sounds / feels like in the drive train somehow, thank you for your help.

98 lincoln continental making noise when not accelerating. No noise when in park but when driving and ease of gas noise starts until I begin to accelerate again.

Hi Audrey:
I would be suspicious of a worn universal in the drive train.
When under load, the pressure hold the joint tight so there is no noise. When not under load, the slack in the joint allows it to move, making the noise.
To track it down I would put the car on a hoist so the wheels can be turned back and forth. the slack component will soon be identified.

In my 2000 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 4 × 4 when driving I hear a roaring sound and a vibration under my feet. But when I shift into neutral it stops. Any suggestions?

wild guess. U-joints bad.? (warning, almost all guesses are wrong)
find someone (a mech) with hands to drive it and ears to hear it
and diagnosis.
grab the drive shaft by hand, (parked LOL)
then man handle it. (think mud wrestling)
can you see the joints flex , in a wrong way?
google that or youtube that, and see right and wrong ways.

We have a 2004 Honda Civic that makes a roaring noise the faster the car goes - doesn't affect the performance of the car.

Where does the "roaring" sound like it is coming from? Can you feel any vibrations anywhere in the car? Under the seat? At your feet?

Just had oil changed 2002 continental have vibration and low roar sound

OK, 1st of all the oil change has nothing to do with vibrations or low roar noise. So not to worry about that. However I suspect that you have an exhaust system issue. Check to see if there is a leak. Also check to see if the car lift did any damage to you exhaust system when oil changed. This might well be the case...damaged when on lift to change oil...
Hope this helps

What is causing the loud howling from my 2002 Suburban?

Hello I don't know exactly where you live however, I'd say the loud " roaring noise is possibly the clutch fan. The reason why they are so loud and make the roaring sound is because as you accelerate the fan blades spread outward but are under resistance .It's activated by ambient engine temp. They are very noisy when engaged and tend to work more on rural roads, stop and go and when A/C is being used. etc. The brake light is on because the fluid is below the fluid level sensor basically telling you to check and or add brake fluid. In addition the ABS light has came on because it had ran low on brake fluid sending a warning signal to the computer from the ABS brake control module. The best thing to do is to keep up on the fluid level find that leak and repair it.

Loud noise when I accelerate

Sounds are kind of hard to describe. Bad exhaust noise can be noticed more when the exhaust is rushed in acceleration. Valve rattle can be created on acceleration as well as "spark knock".

Sometimes an air induction leak can roar when the car is speeded up. Sometimes an air filter is not fully sealed in its' duct and will make noise when drawing in air.

My 95 maxima wants to stalls when when I accelerate pass 30 mph, it makes a loud roaring sound like it has a vacuum leak or something.

You may be hearing the air intake - could be a leak in the intake hose to the air filter.
Is the check engine light on ?
