Depends on the noise you're getting, but that sounds like it might be a belt issue. They make a whiny, high pitched sound like a loud squeak especially at low rpm's.

2008 Element. Runs like a charm, just had its BIG tuneup done this spring (tires, timing belt, etc). Makes a VERY intermittent high-pitched whine. Doesn't seem connected to anything-not just when cold,...


still bad? doing old zero answer posts. (my bag)
finding noise is hard, and takes skills and can be dangerous.
my guess ????? it makes noise only moving.????
only clue is front, and presume outside of car and not under dash.

if car makes noise moving only, it can be dangerous , driving or even trouble shooting.
does it make noise in turns, or bumps,or loads (hills) or in all gears. or down hill, or coasting.?????
when it starts, does letting of throttle stop it, or more throttle>
or down shifting.? or cutting throttle and shifting to neutral.
I added many check to Doesn't seem connected to anything

my guess is the whine will progress to full time, many times this is true.

good FSM cover noise, here is more.

When driving and I get up off the gas, car slows down like you are breaking but you are not.


sit on a hill in neural and make sure it rolls free.If not it's a brake problem.
If it rolls like a bike
From a dead stop listen for the shifts when you start
should be 3 you can feel.
If you don't feel 3 ,transmission shifting is the fault ,have a tach?

My 2009 Toyota RAV4 (4WD) had been sitting in garage for about 3 weeks. Started fine but didn't want to move forward or back and then the electronic stability light would flash after a couple of seconds....


sounds like the handbrake had stuck on.
the brake shoes can bind if the handbrake is left on and this is probably the clunk noise.
you are almost certainly right about the "cleaning themselves"
if you look at the disk surface after a few weeks parked up you will probably see it is a little "rusty" .

if you are leaving a car for more than a week or so, you should release the handbrake first.
either leave it in park as this will lock the gearbox rather than the wheels, or chock the wheels.
that way the pads will not bind to the disks/drums. you may still have the grinding noise as the light rust on the surface is removed.

A loud noise when I turn on the AC and shift it to D or R.


What kind of noise? If it's like a squeal it is a lose belt. If it's more like a clunk it's the transmission shifting and you just happen to notice it more because of the higher RPM the motor is at with the AC on. Try getting the vehicle moving with out the AC on then turning it on after you are moving to see if you get the same sound. If it's a squeal you have a loose belt that needs replacement or tightening.

I have a 2000 s80 volvo transmission shifts fine but in park or nueteral it makes a rumbling noise goes away when put into gear. it did make a jolt and bang when i pulled out from the intersection thanks...


when you are sitting idle and you press the clutch without putting it into gear does the noise go? if so you will need to fit a new clutch kit.

Spinning sound when pushing gas peddle, sitting


try it with the belts off you can start it and see if the spinning noise goes away then it's accessory's like bad alternator or power steering pump but dont run it more than a minute or two or it will start to overheat. and if it still makes spinning noise make sure it's not coming from the transmission /use a broomstick against the engine block near each piston to hear the condition of the pistons if there scored real bad it makes noticable diff noise than a diff piston will make. check the front of the engin the water pump sometimes needs to be replaced because the bearing in it drys up and fails / there sealed bearings in a water pump than go make noise . good luck give you stuff to think about.

1995 jeep grand cherokee transmission park to drive shift noise


Check transmission fluid level, then look at transmission linkage. Some are in a place where they can be bumped around and knocked out of place. Tweek the shifter a little on both sides of the resting position when you shift. If the noise goes away. It is probably linkage related. If you can sample the tranny fluid, check for burnt smell and or metal flakes. Aamco will check it free but dont let them sell you repairs as preventative measures. They will try.
