SOURCE: knocking sound out of right side of yamaha sub

The speaker on the non-playing side is blown. Disconnect it or the amp will get fried as well. The coil has loosened from its form and is rattling against the speaker frame. If the insullation on the coil wires gets worn enough,it will short against the frame and possibly smoke that amp channel.

SOURCE: 2000 jeep cherokee sport engine knock

First you got to determen where its comming from, surley you can hear if its comming from top of engine or from oil pan, i'am not there to hear it so its hard to tell what it is, but i can take some gusses on what it could be. You said a while back it started tapping, that could be a loose or woren rocker or lifter does it run on all cyls. no miss, good oil pressure, could be a connecting rod. The millage is high and things do wear out.

SOURCE: loud noise near the end of drain cycle model #MDB7100AWQ

On some othersites it was said that the plate on the discharge impeller came loose and was banging on the black metal impeller. When I took mine apart that what mine looked like. I glued mine back with J B WELD, and there is still some noise during rinse. One person said he took it out and the noise went away. The part came be bought for about $15.00 online. Are there any torque specs for these screws?

SOURCE: 2000 Suburban Rubbing sound while turning the wheel

Sounds to me this dealer found a money pit. Why would they want to replace the gearbox again? Does it make the sound when you turn the wheel both ways or just one way? Do you have the correct size tires on the front? If there bigger than what the manufacturer put on it they may be rubbing on the inner fender or swaybar.

170K,engine tap from start that increases with rpms, sluggish, no cel, and only k&n filter mod. Any ideas why it is sluggish and feels like its dragging?


If it is a very load knocking that increases with rpm sorry sounds like you spun a crank bearing and you have a rod knocking. If it is just a tapping sound it could be something else.Do you have low or no oil pressure? If no oil pressure you have a rod knocking if you go too long like that and keep driving it you will cause the crank to be out of round and have to replace crank.
