Thank you for contacting

Does your car have aircon fitted? Maybe the motor noise is the recirculation flap being activated to stop exhaust fumes from being drawn into the car just after it has started. This happens especially when you are reversing out of a garage or onto a main road. It's the recirculation Flap/Motor. At worst case you will need a complete air box to fix it (if the flap stop pin has broken). Also you have a stepper motor that could have a broken linkage arm on it its probably the left footwall flap or blend air flap.

Please get back to us if you have any further query.

2000 Ford Mustang GT has very loud cabin noise while driving, but not while idling or revving the engine at idle.

At that mileage your wheel bearings probably need changing, especially if you haven't been lubricating them whenever you did a brake job! Usually the front wheel bearings, the ones taking the weight from the engine and turning weight transfer to the outside wheels on curves burn out it!!!

Clicking noise coming from dashboard when i first start my truck.

Mode door module.
This module controls the direction of the air flow. If the module is bad, it will continue to push the door a certain way even it can not move anymore.

AC issues

The problem is either an actuator or the door associated with it. Sometimes the gear strips, especially when the system goes thru a recalibrate after power has been removed and reapplied. Below is a diagram of the locations of the actuators.

I have a 2004 chevy trailblazer ext and every time we start the vehicle there is a tap, tap, tap sound that come from the back right panel.

Sounds like there is a broken rear HVAC actuator for the rear HVAC. There should be two of them. One for the mode, one for heat / a/c control. Pull the trim panels in the rear and when it's making noise feel the actuators. You should be able to feel the one that is making the noise. The next step woul be to remove it and make sure the door it controls moves freely. It it doesn't you have bigger problem. If it does replace the actuator and you should be good as new. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

P0411 is what is says is my problem with my 1997 Ford Taurus When my heater is on it makes a clicking noise. What could is the most likely problem and how can i fix it?

i belive that the dtc that you have is not related to the clicking noise at all. apparently p0411 is concerning the secondary air injection. the clicking noise however would be a stuck or broken blend door or blend door motor. usualy the hvac system utilizes 3/4 of these blend door motors. to further diagnose this start your heater with the heat on full and fans at the normal face vents and move the vent selector from that inital position to the last position and if the clicking quits at any point then it would be that blend door motor. if that doesnt work then try to slowly move the heat selector from full heat to full cold, same deal. and if still at that point its making noise see if it goes away by selecting recirculate to fresh air....
