Question = Well.. Say I want to pass someone. I get into it, RPMs go up. And I hold it there for a minute. After i park it and let the car idle, I hear a, like a whine, or "power steering" whine, but its not the P.S. It won't do it when you turn. After letting sit and idle, if you rev a little, the engine whines, and gets louder. Any suggestions why my Impala is doing this? Thanks!
JK: Be sure to check the trans. fluid level. Low trans. fluid can give a whine noise that is related to engine speed. You may need to remove the serpentine belt after you get the noise to start. Then re-start the engine and see if it goes away. That would indicate one of the accessories on the drive belt is the culprit. If it does go away, then re-install belt. While it is whining, you can use a stethoscope to try to isolate what is making the noise-Alternator, water pump, A/C compressor.
1999 Chevy Monte Carlo. Question = when driving down the road my car will jerk to the left and right at times. What could cause this?
Answer: There could be a couple different causes that are making your Monte Carlo jerk to the left and right. Your vehicle could need an alignment, as being mis-aligned will cause the car to pull one direction or the other. You could also have bad tires, such as worn tread or a steel belt that has shifted. This will also cause erratic steering and driving. Another possibility would be something wrong with the front suspension or steering linkage. A loose tie rod end, control arm or ball joint, even a bad steering rack can all do this. I would recommend getting your car checked out as soon as possible to see which of these is causing your issue.
