Possibly the bearing has gone bad in the water pump. In which case requires replacement of pump, fluid, and thermostat.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

I have a 99 Chevy tahoe and I just for my spark plugs changed yesterday and now all of a sudden my radio won't play any sound. Don't think that has anything to do with it but its weird how it just...


Unfortunately it sounds like there is a cross somewhere shorting out the speakers. It may be in the door where the wire comes in due to the change when opening and closing. As far as during acceleration the only thing I can think of is if it is grounding against the chasis somehow. That is a tough one, but I would also double check any fuses and connections and make sure everything is secure.

1992 saab 9000 weird noise then engine shuts off


Remove the water pump belt. Start and see if the noise is gone. If the noise is gone you have a bad component that is driven by the belt.

Water pump; My 1990 Buick Century is leaking what looks like water or antifreeze, it's probably a mix of both because we have been putting water in the radiator. But everytime I park my car for a...


if you have the cooling system pressure tested this will show where the leak is coming from as there are frost pulgs and intake/headgaskets and other things that could be leaking.but pressure testing is the way to find what is leaking for sure.the rad may be full as it will draw water from the overflow bottle until its empty.if you didn`t have this problem until after the plugs were changed then it could be a hose that is leaking that was leaned on or moved to much.again pressure testing the system will show were its leaking.the whining noise could be antifreeze that has gotten on something causing the noise.

My oil has instantly stopped circulating, is there an oil pump relay or fuse and if so which one is it? I do not have an owners manual. If it is the oil pump does the motor have to come out to replace?


Are you sure no oil is circulating? If your oil gauge shows no pressure it could be the gauge or sending unit that isn't working. If no oil is circulating your engine will probably not start, since the valve lifters operate on oil pressure. If it does start it will make a lot of noise as the valves and lifters slam against the cam shaft. The oil pump works directly off of gears built into the engine. It is possible to shear the brass gear off the pump. This doesn't happen very often. Another possiblity is that the screen in the oil sump tank is completly stopped up and thus prevented the oil pump from sucking up the oil.

No interior heat / engine overheated 97 dodge ram 1500


From your description i would say the thermostat stuck closed, no heat, running hot, boiling in resavor, thermostat bad, replace. must of got real hot to makes that kind of clunking noise, I just hope for your sake thats all it is, of course i don't know the history of the truck, but right now it sounds like thermostat. There is an outside chance it could be a head gasget, cracked head, pluged radiator, thies are all worst case sanareo.
