This is area is called the "cam chest" for obvious reasons. The cams are in there as well as the oil pump and chains to drive the cams. I would suspect that your noise is the cam chain tensioner is worn and needs replacing. I'd like to give you more information about this but since I've never worked on the Twin Cams, anything I say may or may not be correct. I do know that there are some special tools required to work in this area. I don't work on anything later 1999 models as I specialize in the bikes that the Harley shops won't work on any longer. Now, if you're willing to purchase the tools and a shop manual, I'm pretty sure you can do the job. It's not that difficult.

Good luck
steve

Truck overheats and makes whinning noise


If the radiator is full of water then the water pump could be bad. Most water pumps have a "weep" hole under the bottom that starts dripping when the water pump needs replacing. Can you tell where the whining is coming from? Start the engine and place something like a 3 to 5 foot long cut off wooden broom handle or something similar on the water pump (if you can access it and stay clear of moving parts) put the other end of the wooden rod to your ear and it will amplify the sound. You may be able to pinpoint where the whining is coming from like this.

1999 ford explorer limited whining noise in front end


Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

My 96 chrysler lhs has a knocking/rattleing sound coming from the bottom engine and as you push down on the gas the faster you drive the louder it rattles


if the noise is coming from the bottom end of the motor then you have either bad connecting rod bearings or bad crank bearings.if when you snap the throttle you hear a double knock then its connecting rod bearing if not then its crank bearing.a collapsed piston can sound low in the engine and its usually a dull knock noise.if you have the engine running and the noise is there and you pull off one plug wire at a time(and reconnect it after checking) and the noise goes away or mostly goes away with the wire unhooked then the cylinder that the noise changed is the cylinder that has a bad piston.

Whining sound from under van only when i push the gas.


The serpentine belt is the most common cause for whining sound when accelerating, try to understand if noise is coming from serpentine belt.

Also check power steering belt under steering column, and also the rotor and chain, thei do not make whining noise , but can make noise when accelerating.

The belt is first suspect.

A noise coming from front end of my saturn is it my tie rods


The noise you hear could be the tie rod ends or several other front end items. Can you jack up the front end? If so then turn the wheels from side to side with your hands griping the wheel at the 9 and 3 oclock positions. if you feel freeplay or looseness you have to reach arround and place your hand on the outter tie rod end and see if the play is there or the inner tie rod end at the rack. I worked for saturn for a few yaears and we had ALOT of front struts that made a clunking sound over bumps. Don't forget the lower ball joints could be bad also. Check these by placing your hand on the bottom of the wheel and pushing and pulling on the wheel with it off the ground while checking the tie rod ends. Good Luck, Scott
