It kind of sounds like a wheel bearing or something rubbing on the tire. Do a visual inspection of all fender linings and inspect your tires for uneven wear. With a wheel jacked up and supported spin the wheel by hand while holding the spring. A bad bearing will transmit vibrations through the spring. Or it will be obviously loose when shaking the wheel.

The sound reminds me of an issue I've had before. I'm not sure how, but the plastic fender liner on the right front had come loose. Just looking at it, you couldn't tell there was an issue, but when driving, the force of the wind would pull the fender back and make it rub against the wheel. I didn't figure out what it was until the tire finally wore a ...

This can be caused by being low on refrigerant. Before the refrigerant enters the expansion valve next to the evaporator, the refrigerant needs to be in liquid form so that it can expand and perform its cooling function. There needs to be a continuous supply of liquid from the condenser to ensure that refrigerant in gas form does not reach the evaporator. ...

It sounds from the comments that you have eliminated belt slip as the culprit due to the sound of the squeak (and lack of squeal). If you can pinpoint the squeaking to one specific pulley, it is likely the bearings for that pulley are on their last legs. Bearings perform better under heavier loads, which could explain why the squeak goes away at higher ...

It sounds as though the clutch for the fan has gone out and is now stuck, causing the fan to operate all the time (no slippage occurring). You can check to see if this is the case by opening your hood without the engine running and cold, grab the fan blade, and rotate the fan. If the fan doesn't rotate or rotate easily, this is most likely your issue.

Carbon-metallic Brake Pads If you do have carbon-metallic brake pads, especially high performance ones like you might find on an Audi S4 (although I can't say for sure), the material that they are made out of do tend to be prone to noise which is an artifact that occurs from the manufacturer trying to optimise for braking efficiency. How to Fix Brake Noise ...

What you are hearing is a defective VTC actuator, which in part controls the oil pressure. It is defective in 10"s of thousands of Honda 4 cylinder engines built between 08 and 13. It is mentioned in Honda TSB 09-010. Honda will not fix this problem. The cars with this issue are worth very little in trade, and the defect may eventually lead to engine failure ...

I had this problem too the first time I changed brake pads on my 99 Plymouth brezee. I had the rotors turned and installed new pads on front wheels, but I got a clicking noise I did not have before. Inner pads can go in either left or right Wheel, but outer pads have a different outer "hook" on the pad body that grabs on to the caliper frame. It has a notch ...

I took the car to the dealership for a full cam belt, belt tensioner, idler pulley and water pump replacement and the noise hasn't happened since! I guess one of the parts that was changed during the maintenance must have been worn or damaged or the belt was rubbing on something that it should not have been.

There is also a bearing that goes on the end of the gearbox main drive shaft where it does into the rear of the engine crank shaft (I can't remember what it called, someone can remind me). This only turns when the clutch is pressed and can cause a loud vibrating noise when failing. These bearings can show symptoms for years without major problems - unless ...

A grinding noise when the clutch is disengaged/engine running is usually the "throw-out bearing" or just "clutch bearing". It might also indicate insufficient clearance between the clutch and the clutchplate, which could become very costly.
