Try opening all the vents all the way, sometimes when one is only slightly open, the air rushes through it so fast that it whistles or whines.......had the same issue on my eclipse

2013 CRV intermittent groaning/ moaning sound from rear near side corner when towing caravan. No effect on drive or handling just a moan


take it to a panel repair shop and have the body checked around the tow bar area and rear end suspension points for loose spot welds, cracked body floor panels, loose towbar bolts etc
to get any noise there has to be something moving, stretching or cracking so a very close inspection should be made

What causes a 2004 ford tauraus to make groaning


Power steering pump, air in p/s fluid or low fluid level, faulty rack and pinion unit or failing CV joint bearings are some things to look into. You didn't mention conditions when noise occurs. Good luck.

Why is the steering making a moaning sound on 1991 volkswagen westfalia ?


Groaning in the column itself could be the column bearings, or perhaps the horn contacts, although they make more of a scraping sound. A little lube sprayed between the steering wheel and column may help that. If you're referring to noise in the steering itself, sometimes the front upper control arm bushings groan when they're worn out. Or power steering fluid loss due to leakage from rotted power steering lines under the van. Trying to address all that I can think of, but your question is rather vague.

1996 lincoln town car cartier makes a steady groaning noise seems as if it comes from front of engine. Occurs continuously and then at times, not at all.


If it seems to get louder when you turn the steering wheel then check your power steering fluid level. If determined this is the cause of groaning sound but fluid level is right then you will need to bleed the air or the pump is going bad. Beyond that I need more info for further help.

Ny car feels stiff to turn and making a moaning groaning noise upon early morning start up. Seems like its low in poswer steering fluid. Where is the power steering fluid vessel located under the hood?


Depending on what year the vehicle is, the resevoir/pump should be located on the driver's side (left) and in the very front. If it is already moaning, you might be looking to replace the pump as with no lubrication it will wear down the bearing and the veins in which pump the fluid to create hydraulic pressure. You may add automatic trans fluis (Dexron/Mercon) which will work great (unless otherwise stated on the lid). Find out where the fluid is going so you don't do further damage and possibly end up in an unsafe situation. Let me know if you need further help. Love Mercedes!!

My 94 park ave. moans when the a/c compressor activates. a/c other wise works fine.


Doesit moan all the time it's on or just as it starts. If it continues to moan then an orfice tube may be partly clogged. If just as it starts and goes away it's just the freon getting moving in an old car. the compressor has lots of miles and the seals are leaking interanlly in the compressor you say it's still cooling but if this is the case it won't for long. Sometimes the air motors in the dash move to the AC mode and they make noise as they move but should stop makings noise soon after startup
