Drive Train / Driveline Making Noise When driving Always
Q: My car makes what seems like a light grinding sound when I
take my foot off the gas pedal; it's a manual transmission.
When I'm driving down the road, and I have my foot on the
gas pedal, you can't hear it.
But when I take my foot off for slowing down and don't put
the clutch in, generally "coasting", between gears, it happens.
What could that be?
A: That sounds a lot like the "coast" side of the
differential gears or bearings in the differential
unit...check fluid levels first and then if ok...start
looking to replace with a used unit....
Q: Hello, I have been having problems with my car overheating, recently. I don't know where to begin. I took it into a shop and they said it was the thermometer and they replaced it, charge me and sent me home. 3 or 4 days later, it began overheating when I was on the highway, I was driving about 65 or so. I pulled over at the next exit and I notice that the radiator was nearly empty. I filled it with water and the gauge began to read normal. The next day, it looked like it puked up all the engine coolant on the floor of my garage. I filled it up and went on my way. 4 days later it began to over heat and when I got to work, it needed water in the radiator and engine coolant. What should I do?
A: Find out where the coolant is leaking from and repair it. Ed
