Noise when restarting car after driving

Recommended Posts


(Edit: Changed file location to geocities - limited bandwidth)

Been narrowing this down over the past couple weeks.

The car is a 2001 C2, 6 speed.

The noise seems to occur when restarting the car after it's been driven, then parked for 15-20 minutes. As such, the sound usually occurs when I'm backing out, and it seems to occur more often than not just as I start to turn the wheel, but has occured once while just sitting in a parking space.

The link above is an .mp3 of my car being backed out of the garage. The sound occurs at 0:15 just as I started angling into my driveway. The sound also occurs at the very end of the file, just after I turn the car off (never did that except this one time).

The car is going in on Wednesday, but I'm sure it'll decide to behave then.

btw...it's a poorly recorded, highly compressed .mp3. :)

The sounds are so mixed it is hard to tell if something is loose and rubbing or if you have a serious air leak in the crankcase, exhaust, or intake... best let a mechanic hear it in person. I personally would not drive or run the car any more until it is solved... (JMHO)

Yeah, that one had a lot of compression artifacts.

I cleared up some space and here's the same sound with much less compression.

If you have a broadband connection it'll be small enough, but dial-up won't be worth the bother as there is still a lot of ambient noise.

1.2mb file.


Okay...good news? I finally got my wife to stand outside the car and listen while it happened. She swears the noise is definitely from the front of the car.
