Hello there! More than than likely an acessory going bad, the little bit of extra load on the engine puts load on it, making the noise stop. If possible take sound clip or video clip with sound. Also look at the belt tensioner and see if its jumping around.

Starter for 1998 silverado


what size motor? 4.3? V8? The starter 4.3 is located on the passengers side on the bottom side of the motor. First disconnect the battery. , Look at the new starter and locate old one. Undo the nuts on the old starter. There should be 2-3 small wires all together on one terminal. Take them off. Take the larger nut off and take power cable off. Unbolt the 2 bolts holding the starter onto the block, pull old starter out. At this point have a look to make sure that the old starter doesn't have shims inbetween the starter and block. Some starters need a shim so that it lines up to the fly wheel. You may or may not need to replace these. My rule of thumb is that if they are there , use them again. Rebolt starter the opposite of removal. When you start the engine up, if you hear a loud grinding, or a winding noise and motor doesn't turn over, then you may have to put shims in. Good luck let me know how you make out. Cheers from Nova Scotia!!

My neighbor's 1998 Cavalier is making a strange noise. It has automatic transmission, new tires, and 155,000 miles. When idling at a stop, it sounds fine, but when it starts movig and hits 15 or 20 mph...


Try getting on an open road, get up to about 45 MPH or where ever the noise is loudest. Put the car in neutral and turn the engine off. You can roll in a straight line for a long time. Make sure nodody is around you. If the sound stops when the engine is off, then the noise is coming from the motor. If the sound is still there, its got to be coming from the tires. Id guess a wheel bearing.

Due to part availability, this recall is being conducted in three phases. Phase 1 will consist of 1998-1999 vehicles, phase 2 will consist of 2000 vehicles; and phase 3 will consist of 2001 vehicles. When sufficient parts are available to notify customers of 2000 and 2001 vehicles, you will be notified and will receive a new initiation report.
Recall - Ignition Circuit DefectCondition
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1998 model year Buick Skylark; 1998-2001 model year Chevrolet Cavalier; 1998 model year Oldsmobile Achieva; 1998 model year Pontiac Grand Am; and 1998-2001 model year Pontiac Sunfire vehicles. If the engine fails to start and the driver holds the key in the "start" position for an extended period, high current flows through the ignition switch, and sometimes produces enough heat to melt internal switch parts. If the switch is damaged, a fire could occur in the steering column, even with the engine off and the key removed. The fire could spread to the interior of the car, which could injure occupants of the car or cause damage to adjoining structures.

My car wont start battery is not dead,but wont turn over?


if the battery is fine check if you hear a clicking noise coming from the starter motor when you turn the key to try and start the engine.
If you hear this noise then this is a good indication that the selenoid has failed meaning you need to replace the starter motor.

You can give the starter motor a hit with a piece of wood as some times this will get the starter motor working just to start the car but this isnt a permanent fix and could leave you stuck if you used the car.

Now if the starter motor isnt clicking but you hear a clicking noise coming from either the cars fuse box or the ecu when you turn the key to start the car then this would indicate a problem with the imobiliser this would need testing using a diagnostic machine as their is no other way of testing this to find out if its at fault.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Your ignition switch is bad you'll have to replace it. It's the electrical ignition switch not the key tumbler one. Good luck.

97 cavalier wont start when turning key nothing happens


if the starter motor doesn't turn at all, and all you hear is a clicking then the starter is bad and the solenoid is good

if the starter is turning and the car still doesn't start then the starter motor is slipping and is bad

to check the solenoid put a jumper from the main battery lead (Large Red) to the ignition wire switch (Smaller Purple) is the starter operates the solenoid and starter are ok and you problem is in the ignition switch, or nuetral switch, or wiring.

Car wont turn over


Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out
