Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

Loud sound like jet engine in the cabin. My father believes that it is a broken radial in the tire. I believe it is that or the exhaust. The sound has gotten louder and louder over the past 4 months. I brought it to a local mechanic to fix the sound but he fixed the brakes and a wheel barring. He said "its the tires."

    Hello soul879
    I need to know if the problem gets louder when you are going a certain speed. does it get louder when pressing the gas pedal does it go away at all at certain speeds. I can only say of what I think and it sounds like the rear pinion so let me know and we can go from there.

It gets louder the faster you go and has gotten worse at lower speeds over the past month. Its a front wheel drive SUV and I had the bearings changed out last month. It is loud as all get out

Can 205/70/r15 fit on mg 2000 acura integra


195/55 R15 is the normal size. The number 195 is the width in mm. The number after the slash is the aspect ratio. That means the side wall of the tire is 55 percent of 195. The R means radial and the 15 is the rim size. With that in mind, the 205 tires are going to be 140 mm sidewall. The 195 has a sidewall of 95 mm. I don't believe you can because the tire will hit the inside of the fender well.

1997 honda accord loud buzz near engine when accelerator pressed?


Sounds like either: 1) A exhaust heatshield is loose. They're simply thin metal guards around your muffler/CATS. If you find one loose, remove it or have it welded back on. 2) Broken motor mount. This is serious and requires pulling the engine from the car. If a motor mount is broken, the engine wont sit right and cause multiple vibrations. Hope this helped!

What is inlet or exhaust in land rover discovery -2000


The intake valves(routed to the intake manifold/injectors/throttle body) usually have a tighter clearance specification than the exhaust valves(ruted to the exhaust manifolds/catalytic converters,etc).This is due to the exhaust valves running at a higher tempurature than the intake valves.The only engine I have had long enough to require adjustment of the valves is my 77 Plymouth Volare'(it has a Slant Six 225 with mechanical lifters).My father put about 95,000 miles on it without adjusting the valves.(supposed to be done about every 20,000 miles).My Barracuda was getting to the point of weekly repair,so I decided it was time for a complete teardown and a nut and bolt restoration(after 18 years,I'm finally painting it!)The Volare was cosmetically rough,but just needed some tune up stuff to get it running for daily use.I rebuilt the carb,and used the 5 gas analylizer in the shop to tune it to perfection(it took 4 hours to rebuild,I spent 5 hours adjusting it).It started and ran better,but I knew there was room for improvement.My next task on the list was to adjust the valves,mostly becuase of the noise(it sounded like an old Teletype machine!).I set the clearance at .010" on the intake,and .020" exhaust per the factory manual(my father was smart to buy the mechanical AND electrical manuals as part of the new car purchase deal!)The valve adjustment made such a positive difference that I had to adjust the carb again.The first trip after transferring the tags was to my parent's house.My father couldn't believe how quiet and smooth it ran! So,good for you for doing this maintainance.Engines require so little routine adjustment that it sometimes gets forgotten anymore.

I have the same thing going on with my 2002 cavalier. I replaced wheel bearings with no luck. My tires also wore uneven toe. Going to try alignment.

It could be a broken Oil Pump, Is there oil in the engine or when you hit the pothole you could have hit the Exhaust Pipe and broke the pipe causing a Exhaust Leak.
