    update: I removed both belts and the noise is still present. So I am assuming its the crank pulley.? Any input would be helpful! I used a water hose and a stethoscope and i swear the noise was coming from water pump. So i changed it since it looked original still. But the...
  2. Drivetrain Tech
    Hi folks. I feel embarassed to say that I'm hearing a "squak" coming from my transmission when up-shifting to 4th gear. I say a "squak", because I'm not sure how else to describe the sound. It's heavier and deeper sounding than a squeak. The transmission was built by Rossler to handle around...
  3. Drivetrain Tech
    Ever since I've purchased this car there has always been a slight rumble/roar coming form the rear. This car has always either has the Nitto 555 tires on it or the winter shoes, so I had always figured the noise was because of the lack of sidewall or amount of grip, depending on the season...
  4. Suspension / Brakes
    Over the past 2 weeks, I've noticed a popping/thunking sound when I first step on the brake pedal to stop. It only does it if I'm quick to apply the brakes, if I ease in gently, it doesn't happen. I can reproduce the sound at will, and it's always consistent, but I can't pinpoint where it's...
  5. Exhaust Tech
    Since DT's delete your cats, how do they affect the overall sound of the car? I've heard people argue that they'll make the car noticeably louder and I've heard that you can hardly notice a difference. So whats the deal regarding noise and cattless systems? If it makes any difference i probably...
  6. Exhaust Tech
    I have a SOLO catback and I get a vibration/noise/hum in the 40-55 mph range in 6th gear only. Talking to another member on here (Virus), he stated that VMS was able to adjust his tranny tune to make the noise less noticeable (but still there). Besides the exhaust, I have a RF CAI and Cortex...
  7. Stereo / Electronics
    One spot that is giving me some resonating and or reverberating is the plastic housing that covers the sun roof control/dial. Is this easy to take off & sound deaden? It makes a plastic rattling noise right by my head, and the only way to quiet the noise (so far) is to put pressure on it with...
  8. Drivetrain Tech
    I'm not sure if this is the driveshaft issue or not. My car is making a noise while in motion. I can only hear it inside the car. It sounds like I'm driving next to someone with a loud muffler or I'm driving a boat, but I can't hear this noise coming outside the car with the with the windows...
  9. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    On our recent trip to Florida I noticed a sound and feel that I hadn't before. If I accelerate moderately to 47-50mph, then let off the gas, or lightly feather the brake, I heard a low boom from the front of the car. I am able to repeat this every time. I put the vehicle into engineering...
