Yinka Denis,

Start by checking the Hydraulic lifters inside the tappet cover below the cam rockers they may be the cause for the noise as this lifters need a lot of oil to work properly

2008 vw jetta makes noise from blower

OK. The noise you are hearing is the recirculation flap motor. It could be what is causing the condensation. Easy way to check in after the noise has stopped push the recirculation button on the AC controls to see if the noise happens. If the motor is bad and the flap isn't closing you could be getting moisture from the outside air. As far as the check engine light goes there is no relation. 2 completely different systems. The flap motor would probably run you a couple hundred of dollars. The check engine light could be anything.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6cyl. engine 170K miles knocking noise, oil is brand new I just bought the vehicle two weeks ago and I do not know where to start checking. Car seems to run good, oil pressure...

Have the torque converter checked to make sure the bolts are not loose connecting it to the flywheel,and if it is in the engine(the knock)then remove the oil pan,and check for play in the rod bearings,if there is,the crankshaft would have to be resurfaced,or replaced along with new rod,and main bearings.

Timming chain noise

The noise your hearing is comming from an aluminum timeing chain guide on the drivers side of the timeing chain. My truck had the same problem. The noise first started when the engine was started and then within seconds went away. I drove it for about a year not knowing what the noise was comming from. A few weeks ago the noise got very loud and the truck stopped starting eventually. A few hours ago I pulled the front of the motor off to replace the timeing chain and my guid was broken right off and laying at the bottom of my oil pan. You can remove the two allen head bolts that hold this guide in place and run the vehicle without the guide. Problem solved and no more noise.

Just had the timing chain repaired a week ago. Went to start the car today and it won't start, almost like it never connects (battery is fine). You also hear almost like a humming noise afterward (about 10...

so, when you try to start it, do you hear the starter make a noise like a clunk? or just a whining like a motor spinning. was the car running well after you had the work done on the timing chain?

it could be the starter solenoid not extending the pinion gear to engage the flywheel to turn the engine.

Engine noise on area of pulleys and sometimes engine tries to sto

Don't know if this helps. Had squeel in belt area. Occasionally engine would stop when squeel got loud and sometimes engine would try to quit while going at various speeds. Found tensioner pulley was bad and changed it. Still squeeled and engine would stop when squeel got loud. This time while sitting in yard. Further checking found binding in power steering pump. Will be putting on new one tomorrow. Hope it works. Will update.
