I bought a 96 dodge intrepid 3.5 v6 car that ran great except it was leaking oil from somewhere on the front bottom left hand side of the engine checked everything and put power steering fluid cause it was low i drove it like that for about a month and it drove fine i noticed though that the power steering fluid would constantly be low so i figured that was the oil it was leaking any how one day my boyfriend noticed that there was some little plugs or hoses disconnected so he connected them were


It sounds like the car was ran out of oil.The engine bearings and crankshaft journal are probably scarred.The noise you are hearing is more than likely a piston rod slapping around about to break loose from the crankshaft.So,yes the engine is toast.. ... Dodge Intrepid

I have a 2009 Buick Lacrosse. After a year of driving with no issues, it has a very loud whining noise every time I crank it and never stops until I turn off engine. Does it in drive and park and at all speeds. Very embarrassing! Check power steering fluid level and belt . Fluid full and belt appeared fine. Also, this car has been using oil. The low oil level indicator came on after 2,000 miles after last oil change. Checked it and was 2 qts low. Any suggestions?


The most common source of the whine is the power steering pump is low on fluid or the pump is defective. Check the owner's manual for instructions on how to check the fluid in the pumps reservoir. ... 2006 Buick LaCrosse

For the past 4 days, my 91 4-runner idles rough and vibrates. yesterday the check engine light came on. there is transmission fluid, oil, brake fluid, and steering fluid. I allow my vehicle to warm up before driving, but even then it feels like the vehicle takes its time shifting into gear. sometimes when I'm driving, it feels like the car revs high or is driving one gear too low. When I stop, it sometimes feels like my car is grinding in the rear.

94 Cadillac Sedan Deville... starter or blown engine! Help?rn My step daughter is having a problem with the cadi that I gave her... The car wont start... battery is good... but making a clicking noise... which makes me think it is the starter motor (I am handy and could probably change this)... but when the car was towed back to her house and I checked the fluids there was practically no oil... isn't there a sensor for low oil... and if so if the oil gets to low would it cut off the engine

I ran over a deer lying dead on the road and now the gas, speedometer and rpm and temp gauges won't work. The engine light, service light, brake, change oil, and air bag lights all stay on when the car is on. The rest of the dashboard lighting won't come on nor will the lights fior the hvac controls. Also the wipers only come on for the low and high speeds and won't come on for interval or when using the washer fluid. I checked all the fuses in all 3 fuse compartments and none of them appeared t

My 1995 Buick Lesabre has a low humming noise. It started right after I got my oil changed. It sounds just like the noise a car makes when you don't have any power steering fluid in your car and when you turn the steering wheel, that whining noise it makes? Well that is the sound, but it is not as loud. It don't make the sound when I turn the steering wheel. It is a constant hum while driving, until I get up to about 60. I checked the power steering fluid, It was empty so I filled it up.


I would go back to the oil change place. Fluid levels are their responsibility and you should have a trail of fluid from the leak. If you had no problems before the oil change and immediately after you have problems, then they are the people to tal ... Buick LeSabre

Just bought car with 111,000 miles on 3.1 v-6 ,motor has sludge in valve cover and am afraid of low oil press . What is the best way to rectify this ? I have heard of the run trans fluid in engine trick but scared of locking up oil pump or worse engine . Runs good and no other probs just worried about low oil press .


DO NOT run transmission fluid in the oil. You can buy engine cleaner that you put in before you change the oil and let it run at idle for a 15 to 20 minutes, then change the oil and filter. It might take a couple of treatments to clean it all out. ... 1998 Pontiac Grand Am

The service engine soon light is on. The check engine light had come on several times the day before. The check fluid light had come on & went off. Added 2 qts. of oil to the engine and it is fine. radiator fluid level is fine. Brake fluid level a little low. Not sure about transmission fluid level because it is all over the stick after wiping off and dipping it again. The car has jerked very hard a few times while excelerating but not actually shifting gears.

I was coming back from the store which is 6 miles away. The engine transmission line read hot with the oil light on. I shut the car off and checked the transmission fluid and it was very low, so I put some coolant in up to the line, and checked the oil and it was full. I tried to start the engine and the transmission light was on and I tried to start the car and it stalled. It also knocked a little and it smelled like rotten eggs. What is wrong?


The smell was the catolic converter, the knock was probably a spark knock because the engine was so hot, i need to know what the make and model is before i can give you much more advice, i hope you did not put coolant ... Chrysler Sebring

Brought my audi a4 in to have the timing belt and water pump replaced and my car is now leaking power steering fluid and making loud noise, i was told when i took it back that the the powersteering fluid was low, they topped it off, it was fine until i drove it for a couple hours and the problem returned and my check engine light came on. had the fluid topped off again. can changing the timing belt and water pump damage the power steering pump/rack?


They may have loosened the power steering pump to take off the belt and not put it back right.\015\012They may have overtightened the belt which has worn the bearings out on the steering pump and made it start leaking from the bearings... ... 2004 Audi A4

I get knocking when engine gets hot stopped (on D,1,2,3 or R). There is no check engine light, it is not LOW ON OIL, I have installed a new idler pully, put a new power steering pump on, spark plugs, fan clutch, gear oil and filter. I was disappointed nothing changed. The knocking goes away directly when the car starts accelerating or idle (N or P).


Sounds like it could be low on oil PRESSURE. Or possibly bad bottom end (main bearings). A lot of times when the clearences are excessive in the main bearings, oil pressure will drop considerably once the oil is hot and has a lower viscosity. Sorry a ... 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

One month ago, I went to the Jaguar dealer because I got the engine warning light on. I did't have problem driving the car which was very smooth and fluid. They give me the code P0745 problem and told me that it was necessary to change the transmission. I asked for another opinion. They found that the transmission needs additionnal oil. Which was done. Now, the idle is irregular and too low, so the car is shaking slightly, when I start it. Plus, while driving, the engine "bucks" (sm

I am having a problem with my power steering. The car steers like a tank. When I removed the cap, I noticed that the power steering fluid was low, and it looks like its a coffee color. Also noticed that the power steering line goes behind the engine and looks wet. Is this hard to replace? Thanks mike


It's that color because it was low and sucking air so half that is bubbles and there not too bad you may have to to loosen the rack for better access. ... 1995 Pontiac Grand Am

Yesterday while driving my car shut off, steering wheel locked up and I had to try to steer it out of traffic. I then restarted it and it went but it happened a couple more times before going home. Now this morning it happened again. I checked oil, still good but a little dark. I think it might be steering wheel fluid? A little low if it's the one I think it is but what kind do I put in it?


Well, I'm glad your O.K. You could have one of many problems going on, I would start with the simple, change your air filter. If you service your car regularly, thats probably not it, but ya never know, there could be something stuck in there. If tha ... 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
