Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

When I accelerate, I hear this sound that sounds like something is being poured into the car. I opened the hood to see if there is anything that leaks, but nothing seems to leak from any of the parts under the hood or below it. I'm not sure what it is.

Interesting.

If you have a moon roof then it is likely that what you are hearing is the drain hoses flowing water down from around the moon roof housing. The hose flow path is routed down inside the car body A-pillar section...that would be the closest source to your ears of any moving liquids in your vehicle. Unless of course there is a container inside the cab like maybe a drink or something that rolled under the seat.

You need to check the passenger floor board. What it sound like your talking about is a clogged evaporator drip line. If in fact it is go under the car passenger side. Look for a little tube coming out of the fire wall and try to clear that line. Just a fore waring remember you heard something slushing around so dont leave you head under the line just in case that is the problem.

My 2007 Land Rover Freelander makes a whistling sound when vehicle is idling. Sound goes away when accelerating or applying petrol?


it may be a turbocharger if so equipted, lots of turbocharged cars whistle as the unit gets older..only other thing I can think of is something with the exhaust system.. get it looked at by putting the car up on a lift and inspecting it..now some cars also whistle thru the radio ..this is called alternator whine and is usually correected by a filter in the power line of the radio...good luck

When I first start my truck I can hear a loud rattling sound coming from the back. Hear this sound also when I am in idle. Don't notice it when I pick up speed.


Check to see if one of your brackets holding the exhaust pipe has come loose. That'll make a rattling sound - especially if it towards the end by the tailpipe. When you're accelerating - more air is forced thru your exhaust at a faster rate, so it's not moving as much as when you're sitting still and the truck is just at an idle with less air/exhaust moving thru the tailpipe. If it's only making the noise while the truck is stationary & the noise stops one the truck is moving - that pretty much rules out anything to do withe the drive-train or suspension. You are sure the noise is from the back & not coming from under the hood? If under the hood - check your oil level ASAP.

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.

2002 f-250 diesel super duty air condition probmem.


sounds like the air gap between pulley and a/c clutch is too much now due to wear. when it quits open hood and take a piece of wood or something and push on a/c clutch if it engages and starts back working this is problem. be careful when doing this

you can adjust air gap by removing nut and sliding off clutch there will be a couple washers in there take one out . be sure it will still free wheel when a/c is not on.
