Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

Your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel. Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

Engine knocking i reved up the motor a loud pop sound came from under the hood now the motor will only turn a little bit even by hand before locking up tight. any ideas?


From your descripion you may have spun a rod bearing. I haven't really seen any timing chains break persay. You usually hear a rattling sound coming from the front of the motor but you can still rev it up.
It sounds to me like you might want to clean out a pan large enough to drain the engine oil in. Drain the oil and look for small metalic flakes. If you see any, it's time to call some salvage yards and shop for a low milage motor(less than 100,000 miles) If you are lucky, you might stumble upon one with 50,000 miles or so. It's probably the motor though. If the chain broke, the upper end of the engine is going to be scrap metal anyway because the valves would have hit the pistons and bent..It would still be cheaper to replace the motor with a used one. Good luck

I was driving 40 mph and I heard something that sounded like a bolt hitting the street from off of my car and a loud sound was coming from under the front end of my 2002 dodge neon. When my car is rolling...


Hi, the problem is either a wheel bearing or driveshaft joint. You will need a mechanic to repair the car, as these repairs require experience and special tools. To verify the problem, you can get under the front of the car and grab the half-shafts--there is one on each side going to the middle of the wheel hub. Pull the shaft up/down or side to side. There should be no movement at all. If there is movement, you are holding the bad shaft. A mechanic can tell if the problem is with the shaft itself or the bearing in the hub. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Passenger window want go up


You could have a few different problems. If you still hear the motor running the gears could have broken. If you dont hear the motor then the switch could be bad or fuse but if the other window are working it isnt the fuse. The motor could be so bad that it doesnt even respone. You would have to take out the motor and put 12 volts to it and see if it moves if not go to the junk yard or ebay.

hope this helps,

My dryer was making a loud squeeking noise while drying, now it won't start, I can hear it trying purring but than it does not start, help!


if you can hear the motor running,and if this unit does not have a belt shut off switch,the motor will run even if the belt is broken,the squeaking noise earlier was probably the belt starting to slip on the drum,replace the belt and drum glides when repairing,they are relatively inexpensive and as long as its torn down replace these too

Oil light/noise/oil level good


you could have sludge in the crankcase that is blocking the intake screen for the oil pump ... that happens a lot if oil isnt changed regularly .. in some cars it happens even if you do. ...the clatter you hear is the valve lifters collapsing . they need oil pressure to keep them extended properly ... if your oil pump isnt bad it soon will be .. it needs lub also or it will quickly be damaged ...sometimes you can wash out the sludge with kero/oil mix but the safe thing to do is drop the pan .. clean up the sludge and replace the oil pump.while you are there ...once you have the pump working you can first run cheap oil to clean out things ..then drain and install synthetic ...that will do a better job of cleaning out remaining sludge ... of course make sure you have the proper amount of oil to start with .. make sure there is no water in the oil (milky oil) .. make sure oil filter is not clogged ...some oil filters have a one way valve ... that can stick if the car isnt run for a long time .. ....

PS3 Loud Fan Noise


It sounds like it needs to be cleaned, just blow some compressed air into the fan area, unless you can actually get it opened, then that would be better.

If it was your cranshaft making that kind of noise.your motor would have frozen up already.it seems more like a tranny problem than an engine problem. Take it to a good mechanic. It sounds like your tranny is about to go.

Timer motor keeps running on dryer


sometimes as a timer gets older the timer motor will get a little loud. timer motors run even when the door is open. if the timer advances to off and everything works fine you don't need to worry about it.
