What makes a 97 tracker have a constant clicking while driving. Just put new rotors and brakes on the front end. While test driving it I heard a bang and it stopped. It started doing it again.?
did you have the cv joints checked?
It depends on the current condition of your rotors really. If they aren't worn down too badly (if there is a big lip on the outer part and dipping in closer to the center) or aren't rought or jagged than you should be fine. Rotors tend to last longer than pads in general. If they are jagged or ro...
Your battery sounds like it is dead. Get it charged or replace it with a new one. Then try to find what drained it so this will not repeat.
Yes. Brakes can make noise even when you are not applying actual braking force. Some examples of this include foreign objects that have been lodged in between the caliper and the rotor. This can be something as small as a pebble that is lodged between the two or something more serious.In addition...
2002 cavalier Z24 just shuts off while im driving and will start again by itself or you will have to turn it over?
Have someone check your fuel pump pressure,if you lose fuel pressure while driving,and then it comes back that would explain why it seems to start by itself.
Why would a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country van stop running while driving but start again after 5 minutes?
Could be a very dirty fuel filter or a failing fuel pump. Try replacing the fuel filter first.

Car starts but unless reeving the engine a little it will stall I Can put in gear with foot on brake while reeving then let up on brake and it will stay started and run until I go to brake?
Had the same problem with my Lincoln. . . . There is a lever that you can rev the engine up from under the hood, that needs to be adjusted to keep more gas going to the vehicle. This is what I did over a year ago and it's still working fine. The downfall is that since it's giving more gas, it obv...
Why would a car after a smooth running and cannot get restarted It just stopped at petrol station for 5mins and cannot get it started again?
it's possible that the gas tank has become airlocked , especially if you filled the tank completely. try loosening the gas cap and starting it. if it starts then replace gas cap.
What kind of car? More than likely a bad alternator, could also be a bad distributor or other spark related parts.
When i make a u turn my car stops accelerating. So I have to pull over and put it into park to get it to go again. Why would it do this?
You may have too little transmission fluid in your car which makes the transmission stop working when you turn and the fluid goes to the outside of the turn. Stopping lets the fluid run back down to the rest of the transmission so it can work again. You should have someone check the fluid level. ...
Why does my transmission clunk and then stop or slip while in reverse then i shift to drive it slips shut truck off and start again drive works fine?
probably something wrong with the transmission like a gear fault or a transmission glitch or overheat. Take it to a repair shop or do some test maitanenence yourself.
I drove past a school bus while the stop arm was just beginning to extend will I get a ticket I have my permit and am just learning to drive.?
If the flashing lights were on then you violated the law. If they got your license number you will get a ticket. If not then you are safe. In the future when you see a school bus prepare to stop at any moment.

hi!,had the same problem with our 93`.Disconnecting the plug to the tcc solenoid corrected our problem.On the upper right hand side of the transmission(behind and just slightly below the alternator)there is a black plastic plug in.Pry the plastic locks away on the side of the plug and wiggle it o...
Why does your cruise just stop working while driving down the highway the vehicle just starts to slow down so you have to reset the cruise this is a 1995 Buick LeSabre It has 140000 miles on it?
The most common cause would be that the brake pedal is activating the cruise release switch. That could be because your brake pedal is low because of low fluid, or worn brakes. The switch could also just need to be readjusted because of break pedal and linkage wear.For the cruise to engage and st...
I have a 1999 Tiburon and it has recently started stalling at different times when braking and also sometimes when putting it into gear?
The fuel pump relay is the prob. Or netural safety switch
Your Car Makes A Clicking Noise Today I Was Making A U Turn. And My Acura Legend Stop Moving It Stay On And Made A Loud Clicking Noise What Is Wrong With The Car?
It sounds like a CV axle shaft has come loose from the transaxle. This is usually caused by an improperly installed axle shaft of missing or damaged snap-ring type retainer.
97 E 420mercedes crank will not start alarm light blink have to open hood and lock and unlock door then it will start sometimes if it rain you have to let it sit for a while?
anti theft system is causing problems, the hood pin seems to be the culprit. It will malfunction and set off the anti theft system not allowing the vehicle to start, then when you open and close the hood it sets properly and allows you to reset. Might be best to remove alarm fuse for now, that wa...
Car shakes when at 55mph and stops when I step off the gas I just had it aligned new tires and brakes. It also jerks when I press on the gas pedal sometimes. dont' know if the two are related.?
Your universal joints are shot, get them replaced asap!
I have a 98 Catalac catera and put a new fuel pump on but it still stops on me what would cause this?
Did you replace the fuel filter as well? A plugged filter will cause the engine to stall.
Why would a car make a clicking sound when the foot is taken off the gas and it stops when the car is accelerated And when I switch the 4 wheel drive the sound stops.?
IM NOT REALLY SURE ABOUT YOUR PARTICULAR PROBLEM BUT THERE IS A SOUND THAT IS PRODUCED WHEN YOU LET GO THE "GAS" AND WHEN YOU ACCELERATE. IT ONLY SOUNDS ONCE. THAT SOUND IS '''NOT''' A GOOD SOUND. THAT SOUND IS ''PISTON SLAP''. IT HAPPENS WHEN THE PISTONS START TO DIG IN TO THE CILYNDER WALLS. WH...
Why is my car making a screeching noise when i drive it and then it randomly stops when I come to stop?
either your belt(s) or brakesmost likely
What could be the problem when some heavy light colored smoke is seen after driving a car on a highway stopping and starting it again?
Usualy this is caused by condesation forming in the exhaust system.When the car is driven for a long period and or at highway speeds the exhaust system heats up. Then when it is shut down moisture from the ambient air condenses/collects inside the exhaust,then when you drive the car again the moi...
2002 kia Rio and the timing belt broke while i was driving so you replaced the belt and before i tried to start the car i turned it over by hand and it will only turn half way then stops?
There is a bent or dropped valve that is hampering it, The Rio 1.5 is a zero tolerance engine if the belt breaks than its pooched
You have a 97 ford ranger When you try to crank the engine it just continues to rapidly click When you jump it off it jumps off fine and runs fine Any ideas?
Sounds like a dirty connection at battery or starter. Or a bad battery. Jump the truck and take it to an auto parts store to have battery tested (free in most cases) The rapid clicking you hear is the starter solinoid. It is normal in your case. Please advise if I can help further. Justin Justin2...
My 2003 kia optima just stopped running while i was driving i took it to the garage they said it was the fuel pump they changed it and it still wont run?
Amplifying information moved to discussion page.
Whenever i make my car stall it wont start again for another 5 or 10 mins Im new at driving a stick shift so i stall quite often and was wondering why it takes so long before the car can start again?
I'm hoping that you are not in traffic when you stall the car !! Some ignition switches for instance on VW's, the key has to be turned to the full off position and then on again in order to start. I would find a large parking lot to practice in - get to the point of never stalling before venturin...
97 dodge I am getting no brake unless you pump it a hundred times and keep the pedal hard if you release you have no brake I am not leaking fluid started happening when you disconnected your 4x4 actua?
Pull all 4 wheels and inspect the brakes. Something came apart or broke in one of the wheels.
What could stop your car from upshifting out of first gear and im having a real bad problem with 1 thing to.. i have put 2 new transmisssion in this thing and they all keep leaking out the front...?
For some reason your control computer is not getting a signal from the speed sensor, or their is a problem with the governor on old transmissions.As to the leak, there is an issue with the pump or the install procedure. Either way change repair shops.
What causes a rattle noise on a automatic 2000 Chevy Tracker while driving then it stops when pressing on gas pedal but comes back when you let go it started doing it after replacing rear main seal?

2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 SE When I start it up it makes a knocking noise and is getting worse It's not a valve clicking noise but when I drive it it also makes the same noise when no torque while drivin?
It sounds like a connecting rod bearing going out. The only fix it to have the motor rebuilt before it goes out. If you wait until the engine blows you will have to buy another engine because of the damage that will be done.
Why does my 02 blazer only start part of the time and i have to wait a period of time befor it will start again?
it can be alot of different problems, bad starter, bad battery, can be checked at local automotive shop. :psoorry, it has nothing to do with the starter or the battery. starts fine most of the time..
My 1995 Mazda millenia is making a grinding as I increase the speed the noise increases Sounds as is coming from the front right side. I had the brakes an rotors replaced and it still hasn't went?
Brake calipers will sometimes not pull back from the rotors as they should and will make noise as the brake shoes literally rub the rotors continuously. This can happen even after changing both brakes and rotors. The contact points where the brake shoes slide back and forth on the caliper should ...
You were driving your car the other day when the oil light came on You stopped at a red light and your car shut down You tried to start it but it only makes one click in the engine?

How do you drive a new car is there some restrictions like rpm i just got it and it alreay has 500km on it.?

I put a new pcm in my 02 cavilier and it will not start When you put the stock pcm back in the car starts How do you get the car to start with the new pcm?

You have a 1994 Pontiac Sunbird with a bad engine vibration in Drive while stopped it will slightly decrease in neutral Where should you start to look?
Run a compression check and examine the plugs while you're at it. If you see one or more plugs that are dark and wet, that cylinder isn't firing. If that cylinder also has low or no compression, it has a burned valve.
2002 Cadillac deville dhs and it started making a buzzing noise while driving had tires rotated but still makes the airplain noise please help?
I had the same problem, with the same make/year. You need to replace your hub/hubs. I replace only the one on the driver side front but it's recommended that you replace both at the same time. It's quite easy to do I did it myself.
Why is my transmission popping or hesitating into gears but it isn't low on fluid-- I just put a new radiator in and now this?
If you just changed your radiator, check to make sure you didn't cross up the coolant line with the trans fluid line. I offer this as a "check and see" as I had an older dodge that had front end damage and when repaired, the body shop did just this and I had the same symtoms. Good luck!
What is wrong with my car i have a 2000 hyundia elantre and it runs and it just cut off and if you let it set for 30 min to and hour it starts right then it runs for a fews miles and does it a again?
Try changing the O2 sensor located on the transmission, sometimes if it is going out it will kill the vehicle like this.Also try changing the fuel filter, it may be very dirty and plugged up.
Your 84 fiero with auto transmission stalls when stopping it starts in park but stalls again with a jerk when you put it in drive like a stick shift with the clutch engauged?
some of these model cars(G M) had a switch that locks up the torque converter. When it goes bad it feels as though you are stopping a straight shift without pushing the clutch down.
I installed a 1600w amp with a 3.0 farad but when i pump the volume it stops then i put the volume down and come back again can somebody tell me why?
your sound system may not have the capability to produce such a sound without blowing the speakers
You got a 03 Mitsubishi galant and when you have your thermo all the way to the coldest it makes a clicking noise under the dash but when you move it slightly clockwise it stops what is it?
one of two things either your heater core or your blower fan
While driving my car the accelerator would not work when you push the gas. I turned the car off and it did not start back up again. whats the problem?
sounds to me like a fuel pump if the engine continued to run but accelerator did not work then check for broken or disconnected accelerator cable both at the pedal and the throttle plate
Have a 1992 maxima and it stalls while driving in freeway or city streets then may or may not start after that what could be wrong?
this may be a clogged fuel filter, a fuel pump relay or a fuel pump but it is hard to say without checking the system.,but i have experienced the same with my old 87 Plymouth while driving on the roads and highways. by the way i truly expect your probllem is the fuel pump
What would cause a knocking sound when making left or right turns in a rear wheel drive car that started doing this after the brakes and rotors were replaced?
more than likely to be loose wheel bearings in rotars Dont rule out loose wheel lug nuts

I have a permit and taking the practical driving exam. I don't have a car could I borrow my friend's car with the insurance policy under his name for the test will it be accepted in Oklahoma?
I know the policy in Texas and Oregon is that you must show the vehicle is insured, it does not have to be under the name of the one being tested.Oklahoma is probably the sameThe licensing hand book or their website would say for sure.
Why don't car engines just have 2 or four giant pistons instead of a series of small pistons i want to make my own motor and i know how to but i would like to know if it's worth it.?
It's not worth it because of vibration and balance issues. To get the power of today's cars it would shake violently and put an undo amount of stress on the drive shaft. This was already done by Cadillac and Buick - and they switched away from the design because of these problems.
When you start a car and put it in drive is there supposed to be a slight shake in the engine or should it be just as smooth as when in park?
When you are sitting with your foot on the brake and the engine running and you select drive, depending on the quality of your vehicle, there might be a slight jolt or thump as the engine is then suddenly trying to move the car along the ground. So if the tick-overspeed is too low the sudden extr...
My car is making a vibrating noise every time I lift the clutch pedal and start to drive. Is it a dry clutch plate?
your clutch is warped from excess heat ////sounds like broken damper springs in the clutch disc have you been dropping the clutch by any chance?
When you drive a car and try to stop or reduce speed by braking sometimes the car stops and switches off your idling goes so low. I had recently changed timing belt. can it affect this?
If you car stalls when you remove your foot from the accelerator, when you brake for a stop, you will find that you have a vaccum leak, in one of the hoses from around the engine. A vaccum leak causes an engine to run rough, stall and give poor acceleration. Any hose that you can see with crackin...

Infinity i30t and when you crank the vehicle it idols good around 1000 but once you put the car in drive and drive it for a while it starts to idol high please advise do I need a tune up or bad gas?

Check Crank Position Sensor. Is it still connected? Was it improperly installed, came loose and is now damaged (again)? Could be cam sensor. Dumping ECM codes will tell you. Engine could be running in Emergency Run Mode which is about 400 RPM ONLY (so you have the ability to move vehicle if it is...
Car starts up with no problem will shift into any gear it's automatic reverses no problem but to drive it takes a minute to take off and makes one clunk just before moving then runs fine?
May be as simple as needs the oil topping up in the gearbox
What would cause my 1995 ford explorer 4.0 limited 4x4 to make a clicking sound underneath the drivers side of the dash when it isn't running and won't stop until I disconnect the battery?
Probably a relay that is clicking. Locate which relay is clicking and then we can identify which circuit it belongs to, then hopefully determine what the cause is. It is going to take some detective work and the process of elimination.
Your problem is when you put it in drive and hit the accelerator the car hesitates to go Once it gets going it seems to be fine It is just the inital starting out Its also dies when you come to a stop?
vaccum leakCheck your vacuum lines for any hissing. If someone can correct me, There should be a vacuum line routing sticker under the hood. Also check your air hose from the air box to the throttle body. I had this problem on my Sunfire and I needed an intake hose and it was fixed. Good luck.
You have a 1989 Nissan sentra XE hatchback with a 16 l engine Intermitantly the car's engine will start to stutter and shake at idle and spit while making black exhaust smoke if you rev it any ideas?
I as well have a 1989 Sentra that would do the same and the problem was that when the engine got warm, the oil started to leak into the distributor. The oil would mess up the ignition timing, hence the poor idle and non burn issues. Take apart your distributor and see if there is any oil in it. I...
What should I do after replacing the trans axle on my 2004 Honda Civic I took it for a test ride it was making a click noise I checked it out and found out that the grease fitting on the ball joint wa?

I drive a manual transmission and the car started to smell like burnt rubber and it became hard to shift until it stopped moving all together do you know what might be wrong?

I just had my upper intake replaced and now my car makes a noise when I go from Park to Drive. The Mechanic said it was loose engine mounts. Did they cause this when they repaired the upper intake?
they shouldn't have touched them replacing an intake. this sometimes happens over time and also sometimes they break. if they are loose, all it takes is 5 minute to tighten them back down. easy fix.
I have a 1977 Fiat Spider and when I was driving it it just up and quit. When I turned the key ther was nothing. I have a dome light horn hazard lights but all ignition lights will not come on.?
I would have a good look the electrical system. On North American vehicles this usually indicates that the main fuseable link has blown. If you have the manual for the car, check for where the main power is fused as a starting point. Could also be a problem in the fuse box itself. I don't see the...
On a 2001 town country ac heater and radio all turn on and off by them self but if you start car then take out the started relay everything works fine but if i put it back in it acts up again?

1990 skylark when car is warm car shuts off at a complete stop will start on next turn off key and run but when put into gear shuts off after several tries it will run when put in gear happens again?
Its sounds like the tourq converter clutch might be worn out. But i cant say anything unless i looked at it. It could be poor engine compression. it could be anything.....
Have a 2002 Ford Explorer lately when I start and excellerate the cars jerks its almost like driving a manual car and changing gears as you excellerate. Local Ford dealer said could be the solenoid?
Sometimes a tune up can stop this kind of thing in a vehicle. New plugs and plug wires, fuel filter and air filter should do it. PVC valve if needed.
