Hey everyone! I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this but here’s my problem!
So I have two problems both I would love to fix
1. When driving at low speeds (specifically 13 MPH) my engine; or what sounds like my engine, makes an awful grinding/ whining noise. The noise goes away after I switch from first to second.
2. When driving sometimes it makes a similar noise but is seems to happen when the car is cold and specifically during acceleration.
Thanks for the help!
Hello there, this is my first post here and I’m writing because of problem with my boxster.
Today in the morning I’ve started my 2002 boxster and noticed strange sounds from the engine/ rear side of the car
It’s a metallic, grinding sound like a loose piece of metal or something like that
Sound disappears when you press gas and comes back once you loose the pedal, I don’t know if it changes while engine is warm
Also, check engine light shown up yesterday, when I connected my BT OBD2 there was no error code.
I came with that to workshop also, and they said it’s a catalyst efficiency error.
I’ve had that error code a while ago, I’ve replaced mass air flow meter and check engine light disappeared.
I think it might be a problem with maf again because I bought not the cheaper, not the original one, but why are there these strange sounds? I’m worried about this. Could it be catalyst this time? Or again should I replace maf? This time I’ll buy original one.
here are two Videos I made
Also I’m sorry if you can’t understand something, my english is not perfect.
Thank you for all replies, I hope we will solve that problem together
Hi Renntech Experts,
Please pepper my situation with your wisdom...
2001 Boxster S
LN ENGINEERING double row bearing installed 1 year ago
last service: 105,000 kms
minor mods e.g. pod filter and cold air intake
A grinding noise started coming from the engine bay this morning while parking the car (warm engine, low rpm)
I turned the car off just after it happened hoping it was nothing
I came back 8 hours later, started the car and the noise was there from the start (recording is from inside)
The noise changes sometimes (in a bad way), it gets higher pitched for a few rotations then goes back to normal, so maybe its a bearing.
No noticeable change when I turn on the AC
Please share the love if you can
Car is 996 c2
I've got grinding/whining noise coming from my car not sure where it comes:
- The sound intesity follows speed!!
- every gear
- clutch on/off
- gas pedal on/off
I just changed transmission oil and there is nothing. no extra particles, metal or any silver grease from bearings.
