2002 ford focus 2.0l sohc blowing white smoke and loud noise like a knocking from the bottom of the engine or/and rough idle,what could cause these


If a vehicle is smoking then it is obviously burning oil, loud noises from bottom of engine usually indicate main bearing failure, but that wouldn't usually make smoke are you sure it is from bottom of engine. Sounds more likely to me that you have either valve or piston problems, a valve seal gone would result in smoke as oil leaking into Cylinder chamber would burn producing smoke. Piston ring failure would also produce smoke and most likely a significant loss of power with possible noises resulting from broken pieces of ring in the cylinder impacting on head, this may have also unseated a valve causing the smoke. To check ring or valve failure you need to do a compression test, to check for bearing failure I am afraid it will require inspection either by removing sump pan ( oil pan) and removing bearing covers to check for damage.Whatever the cause it sounds as if it may be quite expensive and age and condition of vehicle should be taken into account, after all with the cheap cars on ebay it may be more cost effective to cut your losses and replace the vehicle.

I have 2300mp i had a loud sound and it sound like the fan was making a sound i took the buld out it look good but i bought one ant way,when i took the bulb out i was get small pieces of color thin glass...


This is undoubtedly a broke color wheel. The wheel is made up of four small slices of colored glass, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Clear. Each slice is fixed into a groove on a brass hub. The high-pitched "whirring" noise that you hear on start up is the wheel spooling up at high speed. If one of the "slices" comes loose from the hub it can break, bind or start scraping. Regardless, there is a sensor that reads the speed of the wheel and won't allow the unit to come fully on if the wheel doesn't come up to speed (which it no longer can). Bottom line...Game Over. It's simply too expensive to fix. I personally am hoping for a class action suit on this obvious piece of junk retailed by Dell. But think of all the extra money they are making from people rushing out and spending up to $300 for a bulb that won't solve the problem. Ahhh...gotta love free enterprise!

After turning your car off for about an hour or so, the cd player is supposed to reset itself enabling you to retrieve your cd's. Attribute this to having utilized burned cd's.

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

Loud noise


When the motor bearings start to go bad, they will make a loud noise. Some motors if a piece broke off of the fan, then it also will make a loud noise. You may have to replace the motor.
