No, none of this is normal. The load vacuum noise may be a busted diaphragm in the brake booster. The fluctuating fuel gauge is either a bad sending unit in the fuel tank or a bad fuel gauge.

My 2003 Chevy Malibu makes an intermittent noise that sounds like someone is sharpening a pencil in the distance in an electric sharpener! What could it be?


If it is coming from the rear of the vehicle it is possibly the fuel pump. In that event you would hear it more clearly if you are close to the fuel tank as the pump is inside the tank. You should also hear it while the car is stopped with the engine running as the pump will be running normally. If there is no noise from that area it will not be the pump.

If it is a grinding noise from the rear (and you have rear disc brakes)you may have a stone or other hard debris caught and moving around between the metal protection plate that sits behind the disc and the disc itself on one of the rear brake assemblies. Obviously if the noise appears when the car is completely stopped it will not be that.

If coming from the front, you don't mention if the noise occurs when the car is sitting with the engine running or only when you are driving the car. If it is apparent when the car is sitting with the engine running, then open the bonnet and see if you can locate the source of the noise in the engine bay. If there is no noise from the engine bay then rev the engine a few times and see if the noise appears. If not then it is not engine related.

Also when driving the car check if the noise increases and decreases when you are speeding up and slowing down.

Loud ticking noise when first staring, engine stalls sometimes when starting it unless I hold the gas pedal down


The TPS would be what I would do had that problem once myself solved the problem. as for the ticking noise sounds like a lifter is bleeding down as long as the noise goes away you will be ok. But may I suggest that if you are going to keep the vehicle for awhile longer you might want to have a set of lifters put in it.

Clicking noise brake pedal


It possibly is the brake light switch, this is mounted on the top of the brake pedal, check the brake lights are working? The switch is not normally loud enough to hear? Check the area around the brake pedal, make sure things like heater air pipes are secure and away from the pedal. If the brakes are ok and the brake lights are working, it has to be something fouling the pedal.

Well, now being 60, might be a bit of a challange for me , but if I had to..... anyway dress comfortably, push the front seat back as far as you can. Now lay on your back looking up UNDER the L/S of the dash where you hear the noise and LOOK. for something loose. Open the hood, look for something loose under the L/S of the windhield. Nothing to lose. Hope this helps

It might be a warped brake rotor. Does the noise change depending on if you have your foot on or off the brake pedal?
