Mileage: 149000 KM (93125 miles)
Engine Size: 2.4, 4cylinder
Automatic Transmission, 4 Door
I have 2 different noises from my engine:
1. When I accelerate I hear a wheezing/whistling noise from the engine. It is very noticeable during accelaration. It gets louder as I accelerate and weakens but stays, when the transmission shifts. I notice this noise at low speeds.
2. The other noise is a vibration noise at high speeds about 130Km/h (81m/h). It sounds like a vibration/growling/roaring/howling sound. Noise stays as long as the speed is maintained. It feels like something is vibrating violently but I do not feel any significant vibration in the steering wheel to say that the wheels are out of balance. The car does not vibrate. When the speed is reduced to 120Km/h the noise goes away. The noise starts suddenly and goes away suddenly. There is no getting louder or weakening in the noise.
One does not drive at such speeds normally but I have just bought this car and have a 6 month power train engine and transmission warranty. So I test this car under different conditions.
something is vibrating at a certain speed when the engine reaches a certain frequency. I don't know what and how serious it is.
I have tried to be as elaborate as possible so that you can pin point the problem.
Looking forwards to reply.
have the same problem?
