My 1984 mustang only has 60,000 miles. When i put my car into drive I hear a loud noise coming from the engine. it has enough oil, its not the brakes, or driving belt. the car drives fine, like nothin


Not much we can do without knowing where the noise is coming from. It could be something rubbing because the engine is shifting. It could be moving around when in drive such as a weak motor mount. Or the crankshaft could be moving under load.
You may need to have a friend watch the engine from the side to see if anything is changing when you go from park to drive. You can also use a section of hose as a hearing device to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

Loud noise when driving on the interstate, so loud...


Where is the noise coming from? If it is coming from your wheels then it would be your wheel bearings. They can get so loud that you cant hear a thing inside your car due to vibration.

I have a Lenovo A61 Thinkcentre that is about one year old. I am now hearing a fairly loud noise that comes and goes. When the system starts, the noise appears and lasts 10 - 20 minutes, then disappears....


Ok it still sounds like an fan. look for fans, one in power supply, one on cpu, one in case(frount or back), one on video card. before you start from cold unplug the fans that you can. and stop the one in power supply. then if there is no nosie you have to start pluging them back in till you hear the noise. **NOTE!!** don't run it long without fans!!( 40 secs) is long enough..

My computer makes a loud noise,how can I fix this problem please?


there are a limited number of things that could be making noises. take off the cover of your computer and listen close when you start it. A fan would be the first thing i'de suspect. check them all- cpu fan- motherboard fan-videocard fan- powersupply fan.
I would also listen to the powersupply (rear top of computer)
only things left to check that could be making noise are the cd/dvd rom, floppy drive (both wont run without a disk in them) and your hard drive which would be the last one to make noise. the hard drive runs everytime your computer moves data, if it is getting loud, i would suggest backing up important files and shopping for a new one. Post again here if I can be of further assistance.
Regards..

Loud humming noise coming from 360


The loud humming noise is usually the DVD drive. It is very fast but is very loud. If you have the NXE dashboard you can download games to you Xbox 360 to run them from the hard drive (you will still need to put in the disk for copy protection issues). The Xbox should make less noise then. Try to mount the Xbox 360 on a hard surface which is in contact with a soft floor to reduce the noise travelling through your home.
If it is making a loud noise while there is no disk in the drive then take the console to a Microsoft dealer whenever you can to have them take a look at it.

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
