Sounds like the oil pickup screen is clogged causing low oil pressure at idle. Oil pumps do not go bad in these cars.

My impala runs great but when i go to leave and stop at a light and shes in drive sitting at the light she makes noise like loss of power or stalling idk i went to aotuzone they checked my alternator its...


When the AC is turned on, a number of things happen: the cooling fan is engaged, the idle speed is increased to account for the additional load of the compressor, and the AC clutch is engaged. My guess is that what you are hearing is the AC Clutch rattling due to a worn input shaft bearing. As soon as it is engaged, the noise goes away. It is possible that something else is going on here, but I would be tempted to focus on the AC compressor as the SOUND portion of your problem. When you say "...she makes noise like loss of power or stalling, I am not sure what you mean. Is it a noise, or is it actually losing power. With no MIL (check engine) light on and if the noise goes away after servicing the compressor, I would say you are fixed up. Good Luck.

My car is making an awful groaning grinding noise noise when it starts. The noise stops after it starts. Put my foot on the brake it starts again. put thr car in reverse no problem put it in,drive it...


It's your exhaust mounts or broken exhaust bolts. It does it in drive st idle n under load because the motor is sitting in rubber mounts made to dampen vibration. Therefore the motor tilts to the left in reverse pulling the exhaust away from your under carraige, and to the right in drive causing the loose exhaust to vibrate against something. Check your heat shields also. They fall apart n do the same noise. Piece of cake.

Weird noises in 2004 Monte Carlo SS Intimidator Edition


you have a rod in the motor that is about to go out so i would sell the car if you don't know how to replace a motor. when that rod goes your car will stop running and the motor will need to be rebuilt. from the sound of it the rod isnt too bad yet because the sound goes away at operating temp so you could get quite a few more miles out of it (0-4000) but it a piece of machinery and could go out tomorrow.

this sounds like a mass air flow sensor problem. they make a cleaner for the m.a.f. try that first and see if your problem goes away. if not you might have to replace the m.a.f.
