You hear a loud humming noise coming from the rear brake drum on your 2004 kia optima?
Most probably a wheel bearing or brake problemIt could be a tire if you are listening while going down the roadBut anyway it needs a qualified person to look at a serious safety problem
Rear brake drums or poor rear alignment. Those would be my first two guesses. Poor alignment can be checked just by looking at your tire wear. Ideally you want the tread to wear evenly across the tire. Get out a penny or other coin and do some simple thread depth checks.
Check that the steering column is not obstructed
if it is an encapsulated light, meaning plastic with out a sealed beam, you lift the hood locate the headlight, there will be a big plastic ring probably black twist counter clockwise and pull out the bulb,DON'T TOUCH GLASS it shortens the life of bulb from the oiul on your skin push back in and ...
The air bag light is on because there is a problem with the system. Until the problem is fixed the light will remain on. Your mechanic can diagnose the problem, make repairs and the light will reset itself.
that nosie is the wheels locking up, this doesnt usually happen in modern cars as they have anti-lock brakes.
cheack your break booster.
make sure brake shoes are retracted make sure emergency brake is fully released make sure return springs are installed correctly
Not much info there but my guess would be the the fuel pump.
If all fasteners are removed and it's still not coming off, give it a couple taps with a hammer.
Remove the wheel and tire. Next, remove the axle end cap. Remove the brakes and all hardware. The brake drum will slide off.
Pretty simple... jack the rear axle up, take the wheels off the hubs, and you should be able to pull the drum right off... there is a possibility you'll have to remove a snap ring in order to do this, although I'm not certain whether or not this is the case for that model year... if it doesn't pu...
possibly a bad motor connection
Theres a clicking noise noise coming from under the console when the lights are turned on the head lights come on when the brakes are depressed?
very simple, if you have replaced a tail light globe or indicator or brake light globe... if you have replaced one of these lights or similar globes, check that the globe on the base has single blob of solder on the bottom of the metal end. for parker,indicator etc. if you have replaced a brake l...
You probably have a leaky wheel cylinder. Have the brakes inspect now!
Your motor could be undergoing detonation. This is a result of a complex burning problem inside one or more cylinders. Number one cause of this is low octane rating. Too much load on your engine or shifting into high gears also cause it.
''Shut the door''....ok...maybe you tried that already. 1. Locate the switch (i.e. dash edge, door jam). (sometimes the plunger rod (the stick) breaks off. When the door closes it can not activate the switch.) For it to work properly, you have to replace the switch. It is designed as a safety fea...
To replace the windshield motor on a 2002 Kia Optima, use a fused jumper wire to bypass the relay of the wiper motor. Then use the positive lead to touch the positive terminal on the relay. Remove all mounting bolts of the windshield motor and gently pull the motor out. Replace with new.?æ
The noise COULD be from those parts, but in my experience, I've found that its usually something way less involved. It could be an exhaust leak, or a lack of oil, or, a sticking valve, hole in the header or muffler, or a plug wire slipped off , lots-o-possibilities. Another great reason to see yo...
Loud squeaking noise coming from right rear wheel every time you turn right what could be wrong its a 96 Saab 900 turbo?
I am not too familiar with this car but the only thing I can think of is Possibly a bad wheel bearing I suggest replacing it.
brake drums should pull off if not rusted on.
You brakes are wearing out and it takes them a longer time to stop you.
In most cases, it is due to the ventilation. Ventilation duct can be cleaned or changed.~Depending on your vehicle the "squirrel cage blower" may need the bearing/bushing lubricated or replaced, on some vehicles this is easy and some others very difficult. I have included (link below) of a typica...
Most modern vehicles have the fuel pump in the back or in most cases the fuel tank itself. If your check engine light comes on, take it in for a computer scan. Ask them to do a pressure test of the fuel pump also.
when the vehicle is parked they are raising the motor, Or when passing by it rattles the window
MAKE CAR MAKES THE SAME NOISE AND REPLACING THE PVC VALVE FIXED THE PROBLEM
I am going to assume this is a truck you're talking about. There may be ground metal in the rear causing the noise and interfering with the differential speed sensor. Drain the gear oil from the real. If the oil contains metal particles (sparklies) or is dark gray to black in color:Replace all be...
what are the pins for on a wheel drum?
Many times the newer non asbestos pads will get dirty or the hardware will and will cause a squeaking sound, also these pads have a piece of metal that will contact the rotor when they are ready to be replaced, the squeak is a reminder to get them changed soon. Either way you should have them loo...
First diagnose it to locate the exact location the noise coming from then determine course of action to fix it.It can be a defective CVC-joint or other things. Have it inspected by a qualified mechanic and they will find the cause of the popping noise.
You can adjust the rear brakes with the rear brake adjustment bolt. The rear brakes should adjust automatically every time you back up and use the brake.
The rust binds the pads and causes noise and poor performance.Squeaks happen when the pads vibrate against the piston and bracket when the brakes are partially applied.The knocking noise mentioned earlier is caused by the brake pads rattling in the brackets.
Whats wronng with your car you hear a slight tapping sound coming from your engine in your 1996 Chevy luminu?
chances are good in your 1996 Chevy lumina if there is a slight tapping noise, check the oil. it may be low, or you may need to add a thicker additive. good luck!
You cannot adjust it and it is set by the computer in the car, it can vary by altitude, speed and accelleration.
You should have a check engine light illuminated. If so check the codes.
You drive a 1999 peugeot 206 engine 1.1 and when the car heats up and the fan comes on a loud screeching noise comes from the engine for a minute or so then goes away please help?
THE problem was the fan just in front of the radiator the bearing in it was seized I solved this by puuting some grease on it!!
Why does the brake light come on when cornering is this the front pads or the drum brakes wearing out?
No not at all, the actual brakes/wheels have nothing to do with your brake lights!the issue will be of electrical origin.. I would suggest start by looking at the siwitch that will be attached on the stem of your brake pedal.. however electrical problems can be a right pain to locate.. best of luck.
Vehicle has a disc brakes and drum brake system The rear wheels lock-up too quickly during hard brake?
Rear drum brakes, that lock up during heartbreaking quicker than the front brakes, can be adjusted. The rear brake pads need to be backed off.
I would advise bringing your car to a mechanic as quickly as possible. Your brakes could fail. This puts you at a high risk for injury or even death.
2007 subaru There is a humming noise coming from the front when the car is off and just sitting in the driveway. Why is this?
Perhaps the cooling fan is running?
Terrible noise coming from 2001Lincoln Town Car replaced Rear bags iThink its the compressor How Can you Know for sure?
If it has a fuse pull it out and see if your noise is still there.
It could be objects shaking in the trunk or something loose on the rear license plate or a problem with the catalytic converter or exhaust pipes.
The drums should also be replaced when the shoes are replaced, because they can wear down and can also develop heat cracks.The slack adjustors work to keep the brakes in alignment when they are used.Trucks can have either manual or automatic slack adjustors.
How do you change the rear brake pads and depress the piston on the caliper on a 2004 Honda accord 4-D EX with disc brakes The rear caliper and the emergency brake are one unit and what tools.?
screw it in turn the piston clockwise and screw it in , only for rear brakes
No. In fact, it probably wouldn't be a good idea.
generally the clacking sound from a bottom pulley means the bolt is loose allowing it to move,or the pully wheel is worn out and needs replacing the bottom pully wheel is clled harmonic balance this pully is made of 2 parts joined with a tuff rubber this talkes out vibration and allows movement f...
Check fuses first but its probably the brake light switch under the brake pedal.
Probably a cat that you ran over!
Later Austin Healy Sprites, and MG midgets had front discs and almost identical front suspension. If you have the front spindles rebushed to the Metro dimensions and use the bolt-on wheel hubs (not knock-offs) you can install the front disc brakes. It took me a while to round up the parts from va...
To change the brake shoes, remove the tire, rim and axel after you have the car lifted. You can then go on to remove the old brake shoe and replace it with a new one.
jack it up, remove the lug nuts and wheel. Make sure your car is in gear or park, emergency brake off. Their might be several screws on the face you'll want to remove, if not, try to pull cover off. It might be stubborn so a mallot can help brake it loose. Once off, maybe take a picture of how it...
More than likely your pilot bearing can be going out. Also if the clutch itself or pressure plat has heat spots and is warped it will cause an abnormal noise. Easiest way to tell is drop the transmission and inspect. What car and transmission is this for?
You either have a flat tyre or the car might be "back firing". That is fuel is making it's way through the exhaust and then igniting causing a bang or a pop - which it shouldn't do. These are the most obvious things I can guess without more detail.
chain it to a concrete wall and drive as fast as you can in the opposite direction
Can hear a hollow humming sound under the car when driving the noise slows down when the car is about to slow down?
If the car is straight drive check the transmission fluid for full. Check the u joints on a rear wheel drive. Look for any loose parts on the exhaust system as well to try and find the humming problem.
Your little Neon is a front wheel drive. There are two constant velocity joints on each axle. When they wear out as they normally do after about one hundred thousand miles and up, they begin to click whenever you turn the front wheels left or right. The clicking eminates from between the wear sur...
The road might be very bumpy or might have big pebbles on the road.
2000 kia sportage low gear noise 2000 kia makes noise as if engine is pushing too hard first time i heard it i thought it was a truck next to me.More noise in summer time comes from front.?

What would cause a squeaking noise coming from the rear end of the car when you go over a bump in the road?
A squeaky noise can come from the back of your car if your shocks are damaged. Sometimes shocks can dry rot.
Only if the bulb or wire is burnt out... Else the switch has defect,,
I just had this on my skoda fabia 1.2 , I found that it was the Outer c/v joints on the drive shaft , this is easily repaired as you can get the whole c/v joint kits from about £25 each from somewhere like euro car parts etc. Or it might be just a split in the c/v joint boot whitch can easily be ...
Your stater makes a very loud screeching noise when you start it your car is a 91 olds cutless surprem?
why does my starter make a loud screeching noise when i start it?
If its right after you turn off the key it might be a power antenna motor.
I'm assuming you have checked for tire leaks! Check for leaking air suspension parts if so equipped. Not sure about a car this old, but lots of the newer Fords had air bladders for struts/shocks (air ride option). These cars had compressors under the hood to replentish air to adjust ride height. ...
The fuel pump coming on. Most cars prime the pump when you turn the key on, but VW does it when you open the door.
It could be or more likely it could be loose or the fluid level could be low.But the cute one is current Rovers and old Fords can wine just because they are built that way.
sounds like you need to replace the U-Joints in the drive shaft
Loose wheel; brake problems; bad bearing; something else? Whatever it is it's serious. Check it right away.
I hope you take it to a garage and have the brakes inspected. Might be a brake fluid leak.
Take it to someone who knows what they're doing and stop being a tight arse
Small EVAP leaks can be hard to find. Most shops will perform a smoke test to pinpoint the source of a small leak. Leaks can be found anywhere from the purge valve on the engine all the way back to the gas cap including the vent valve, charcoal canister, steel lines, filler neck, rotted fuel tank...
When driving your car you hear a squeal every time you press the brakes. You decide the problem is that there's a mouse trapped in the brakes?
Then you should get a cat. The problem is not a mouse- the problem is that your brakes are wearing out. They are designed to make a noise to tell you that. Skip the cat, take your car to a shop where a mechanic can replace the worn parts. They can check for mice at the same time.
What does it mean when you hear a sudden a loud explosion bang sound from the car when you are driving?
engine back fires: could be from bad gas,needs tune-up,incorrect timing,coil
check your local library or you can order the repair manual.
possibly worn shock absorber rubbers,loose mounting bolts,broken mounts. more info needed to diagnose
Why do I hear a low humming noise from my 2005 Honda Accord after I had the air filter replaced The mechanic says that it is a small electric motor Honda's have that is part of the engine help?
The low humming on a 2005 Honda Accord could be one of several things. The most common source of a humming noise is a wheel bearing which may be coming loose. If the noise get louder over time the wheel bearings should be checked.
I just covered them with black tape until I replaced the ABS sensor, then they both went out and I removed the tape. ABS sensors are cheaper on Ebay than at a parts dealer I've learned.
When you hear a siren bell or see a flashing red light coming toward you from any direction you should?
When you see red or red and blue flashing lights or hear the bells or sirens of an emergency vehicle approaching from either direction, you must immediately slow down, move as far to the right side of the roadway as you can and stop.Stay alert.
-The brake drum may be cracked.-The brake disc may be cracked. This would be dangerous-Combination of soft brake pads and a directional finish on the disc surface. A directional finish may go away with use and take the noise with it.
There are no fog lights if there is no switch. it would be labelled.
What can cause a grinding noise in the front end as you drive down the and as you turn the steering wheel you hear a grinding noise?
Had same problem with mine, if you turn right and it grinds, the left hub bearing is going out and vice versa. The weight of the truck is placed on the bad bearing the opposite way you turn. Should sound like a grind but it is a consistent "noise""quiet""noise""quiet".
There is a special tool that one needs to accomplish this task. It turns the piston while pressing the same piston into the caliper body. Try www.germanautoparts.com to purchase same. Do not try to do it without this tool, you will damage the caliper and it will cost you $$$$$ to replace.
My car sometimes makes a crunching noise coming from the front when i start it it may have something to to with the starter im forced to turn it off straight away wen it happns cos its a loud noise?
theres a thing called a PAWL that engages the starter motor to the flywheel ofthe vehicle. when you try to use it the pawl sticks either in orout and makesa crunching noise.. youeitherneed a new starter or a rebuilt one. I personally have cleaned and lubricated starter pawls on many vehicles and ...
Knocking in your engine, also described as pinging, can mean one of several problems.The knocking sound often occurs when the air-fuel mixture is incorrect, which causes the fuel to burn in uneven pockets rather than uniform bursts.Left untreated, it can cause damage to the piston and cylinder wall.
no the rear fuse is number 1 and the front are 37.
you probably have a short in your wireing
If you have a clutch it could be slipping. It may also be a problem with the muffler or exhaust system. You may also have a very powerful engine.
TOO LOW OF OCTANE.TRY 89 IF STILL RATTLES GO TO 91 OR 93 OCTANE. U WILL DAMAGE YOUR ENGINE WITH TOO LOW OCTANE.
Check transmission fluid and power steering fluid.
Your front right tire went from a constant rotation sqeaking noise to a kind of rubbing noise your brakes are fine what else could it be?
Most times, the squeaking and rubbing noises are caused by brake pad wear, but you say the brakes are fine. Otherwise, if by constant rotation speed you mean the squeaking/rubbing noise is present even when the brakes are not applied, you might want to get the wheel bearing inspected
look up "pinking" on wikipedia - this is a condition when petrol pre-ignites. Try using a higher octane fuel or get your engine cleaned to prevent this.
You have to pin-point the source of the noise and then you can determine what steps to take to fix it.
Not sure but it could be that the car's heater unit water has air in it. If so I believe this can be caused by exhaust gases coming from a leaking cylinder head gasket.
Your car wont start you here a clicking noise coming from somewhere near the glove box could it be your starter solenoid?
It may be the starter solenoid that is clicking. If the battery is very low when you try to start the car, the solenoid will engage but the starter will not turn. Because the battery is so low, there is not enough power to hold the solenoid closed (in the start position) and try to turn the start...
