Periodically the drive begins to sound loud as if it were racing at a high speed. I don't know why it starts or stops that behavior.

Driving along makes a very loud noise like motor is racing, but continue driving, noise goes away then starts again???


Please take a look at your Engine's RPMs when this is happening and let us know, as it will help with the diagnosis. If the Engine RPM is stable (not high during the periods of the racing engine sound), then it sounds like your Radiator Fan clutch may be going out. The noise you are hearing is the fan kicking in and blowing a lot of air, which in turn sounds like the engine is racing.

If the RPMs are increasing with the racing engine sound, it could be the transmission/(clutch if manual trans) slipping.
Hope this helps!

My car engine makes loud sound when i drive


This could be a number of things and a car is difficult to diagnose from sounds as th nature of it means that the sound does not always come from where it sounds like it is. Try - wheel bearings (usually a high pitched squeal) - Big or little end bearings if the engine has been run low on oil. It is an auto I assume so could be gear box. It could be something really simple like engine mounts and the vibrations of the engine are passing to the metal body as the rubber has come away.

If the shock absorbers under the compressor are damaged or loose there can be a lot of different noises but I have never heard it referred to as a motor racing.

A motor racing sound would be more like a fan motor going berserk and not keeping a constant speed. Since the compressor fan is located in the area of the sound you might want to take a look at it and see if it is keeping a constant speed.

Begins to engage at first at a slow speed then stops engaging. the motor sounds like it is running, but the needle is not moving.


What seems like motor running isn't so. The motor is actually stopping and the sound u get is from the winding. You should immediately raise yr foot from the foot pedal and stop supply to motor. Other wise you run the risk of loosing yr motor.

Your problem is due to something getting jammed in yr bobbin compartment.

Clean shuttle race and shuttle race free of lint regularly to avoid this.

LOUD RACE CAR NOISES FROM MY 99 VW BEETLE


This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.
