The hood latch pull hamdel should be next to your left foot mounted on the kick panel. The noise is probally a CV-joint going out on one of your front drive axles. there should be a rubber boot over the joint, and it is busted. making dirt & road film, plus water washing the grease out from around the CV-joint. You will need to replace it. About $100.00 per axle, if you do the work????

I have a 98 Gmc Jimmy and everytime I accelerate it makes this noise around the front passenger side and it sounds like when you would put a card in the spokes of a bicycle...? Any ideas of what this


Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Could also be a CV. Make sure you know what wheel before you replace anything. Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand. If correct wheel you will hear it. Hope this helps

My 1998 chevy caviler has a grinding noise when i step on the gas peddle & rev it up, what can this be?


this could be anything i assume your hearing it under the hood. with the engen OFF pop open the hood and see if the fan blades are rubbibg aginst the fann schroud. check the end of each fan blade for possable signs of rubbibg check around the schroud for rubbing or anysign of rubbing. i dont know what type of noise your hearing you might want to check the belts make sure they are in place. and the pullys to make sure there is no movement other than turning the way they are supposed to go. if you cant see anything have a friend over and being very carefull with the hood still up have them or you start the car while the other one watches and listens under the hood. [KEEP HANDS BACK] have them rev... a little on it to see whats making the noise. and im sure youll find it. remember it has to be a moveing part making the noise..i hope this helps

Everytime I start my car it hesitates and then starts up then it makes a noise on the passenger side under the hood. What could be my problem?


I am willing to bet that the vehicle has an air ride suspension and the noise that you are hearing is the air compressior pumpimg up the air bags. (Compressor is located on passenger side close to the wheel well.

Everytime i accelerate my car it starts making a squeling noise but when i don't accelerate it stops and then i hit the acceleration again and then again noise starts and i can't seem to find the problem!


Are you sure you don't hear anything like a chirping sound when the engine is idling? Have you popped the hood and listened while the engine was idling? Have a friend sit in the driver's seat while you pop the hood, tell them to press the accelerator and then listen for the squeal. I would bet dollars to donuts the problem is the serpentine belt is worn and needs to be replaced.

Same as above... cant pop hood with a dead battery


If you open the fuse box in driver's compartment by your left leg, there is a red plug that you can pull that will expose a positive lead.

Put a charger on the lead and ground the other side of the charger to the frame and it will provide power to use the hood latch.

I have seen other people write about using the car charger that fits into the cigarette lighter but I have no personal knowledge. I hope that is helpful.

There is also an emergency release under one of the wheel wells but I never attempted to look for it.
