  1. Need answers for car!

    I have a 1993 Chevy Camaro z28 5.7 with about 135,000 miles. It made a whining/humming noise recently. It sounded soft at first, added oil the. Noise would go away. One time it got REALLY loud, spooked my girlfriend as well as me, then it stalled out and died. I checked the oil but that was fine so it bothere me even more. So I Let it sit for a few minutes then started with no problem. It happened again recently but i slowed down an it gt really loud again. Let it rest then tried going home. I was going about 75 miles per hour until it didn't want to give gas and started to stall. I pulled over and shut it off for a bit them drove it home while it did that stalling out about twice more. I can answer as many questions as I can, any advice would be appreciated! I should also mention that I put in a new alternator the day before I noticed anything.
  2. I live in a cold climate usually around -10 to 25 degrees F during the winter months. This is for a pt cruiser 2001 limited edition model. When I turn the wheel the car makes a groaning noise as you can hear in the video . Any clues as to what it could be? Bad/dry ball joint? power steering? Thanks.
  3. I need some help to locate an unwanted sound from my engine compartment. Im driving a Ford Focus 1,6 petrol engine/zetec (2000), mileage:166 000 km. It's best described as a clicking or ticking sound which is quite distinct. The sound seems to follow the "speed" of the engine. Most likely the sound is coming from the drivebelt, and maybe from one of the tensioners which the belt is running on. It's a visible wobble on one of the wheels but im not sure if this is the case. It dos not seem like the sound is originating from the engine itself but im not 100% sure. Any good advice on how to go about this conundrum? Super greatful if anyone could take the time to help out a novice! I attached a sound .wav file for those who are interrested..... Thanks again!ford.wav
