1996 Toyota Corolla Repair Question
Puzzling rattling sound only on wet road
Where the engine mounts checked?
If you dont mind me asking, why does the problem appear only when the car is running on wet roads? Please enlighten me. thank you.
at this stage i have no idea, i am thinking it over.
Thank you and i hope we could solve the problem, im just afraid that the car will stop in the middle of nowhere, with the rain pouring and all, with my kid inside. every father's nightmare i guess. Please keep me posted. Thank you so much.
does the noise alter with breaking and is it rhythmical and constant with road speed.
Situation when road is wet. From full stop, noise starts to appear at third gear with the thud at half a second interval and continue to do so as the car runs with even shorter intervals, when I step on the breaks the noise disappears only when the car is already at full stop. If I continue to run the vehicle with the noise still present, then the engine will start to rev hard like im climbing on a very steep road. I've been to four local mechanics, none can guess what the problem. I began to think its the catalytic converter, which might be boiling when is wet by the road until one mechanic said my car model does not have one.Anyway, I just thought you guys might have the answer. I hope we would. Thanks again.
went to a local mechanic again today. he says it is the clutch disc or something that is causing the noise and the engine to rev up. that we need to replace it.
