Loud Engine Noise problem of Dodge Durango
The vehicle involved was a 2004 Dodge Durango. I have had my truck since Feb of this year and have not had any major problems with it. The only issue that I have had is that when it rains or when we go through the car wash it stalls and acts like it wants to cut off. I informed the dealership where I purchased the car from and was told it was not a major issue and to bring in after the holidays and it was ok to continue to drive it. I have kept the maintenance current and just recently got an oil change. On christmas night, I took my father home who lives about 30 miles away from me and came straight back home and parked the truck. No issues or problems. Later the next night, I went out to start it to go to the store and it would not start. It had rained earlier that day and it was cold so I just thought that maybe I needed a jump. It was late so I didnt worry about getting one from anyone. The next morning I got up early to try to start it again and still nothing, so I asked my neighbor for a jump. When he tried to jump my truck it made a horrible noise so we stopped and I called the dealership and told them what happened. They sent two of their mechanics over to my house to try and jump it and they was shocked by the noise they heard. They initially thought it may be the starter and they also verified that all my fluids were full. They ended up towing my truck back to their dealership and a few hours later they called and told me my engine locked up. . . . This was so devastating for me to hear because they told me the repair would be $3000. I have not had the vehicle a year yet and am a single mother of two kids. This problem is very common with the same truck that I have with the hemi engine. I traded my blazer in for this one to be able to have something reliable and really love the truck but cannot believe that there has not been a recall since there have been so many of the same problems. This loud engine noise issue occurred Wednesday, December 26, 2012.

It doesn't start up like normal and if it does you can't even drive it. Sounds like the engine is in pieces. I've heard a lot of Dodge hemi owner's had a lot of problems with their engine seizing up while they were driving at high speeds and everything just completely shut off on them(very dangerous).

Loud Engine Noise problem of Jeep Cherokee
The car involved was a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. I was driving down the highway,and all of a sudden I heard a loud noise. So I pulled over to the nearest gas station and realized I was leaking oil profusely. Then I realized the driver side motor mount had broken off of the engine causing a large hole in the engine block. I have taken great care of my vehicle, changed the oil every 3,000 miles, and then this happens at random. I didn't hit anything to cause the motor mount to break, so why would it break for no reason? anyways, the leaking oil caused a fire beneath my vehicle, and inside the engine compartment. But I quickly put out the fire by a container of water I had in my vehicle. I had my 13 year old brother with me and thank god he or myself was not injured. But it caused us great fear and stress. This issue happened on August 7, 2012.

Loud Engine Noise problem of Jeep Compass
The car involved is a 2011 Jeep Compass. With my foot on the brake, completely stopped at a light or stop sign, while in drive only, the car vibrates and the engine makes a loud rumbling noise. This can be felt in the steering wheel, brake pedal and throughout the entire car. When I take my foot off the brake or put it in neutral, reverse or park the noise from the engine and vibration will stop. The vibration is so bad it is uncomfortable to keep your foot on the brake, or hands on the steering wheel, making it dangerous, as I am having to put the car in neutral at every stop. Have had it at an authorized Jeep dealer 2 times now and they have found nothing wrong. Contacted Jeep, as the car only had 3600 miles on it when I first took it in, they assigned me a case number, and will be in the shop until it is fixed. Thank you Jeep for trying to find a cure for this problem, as I love my Compass, and really want it fixed. It was Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2011 when this loud engine noise issue occurred.

Loud Engine Noise problem of Lexus RX300
I have experienced several problems with my 1999 Lexus Rx300. I have notice via the internet that these are wide spread problems but no recalls have been occurring. These are the incidences that I have problems with:
* debris can get into the idle air control valve that allows air into the engine causing the engine to have a low idle speed, or stall when it is cold. (this occurred in the past, perhaps 2004. Lexus eventually replaced my engine in 2005. )
* sludge can build up in the engine. I routinely have to have the sludge cleaned out to avoid engine problems. * the check engine light comes on because the mass air flow sensor sends incorrect information to the engines computer. This can cause a loss of power on acceleration. (this started occurring on December 11, 2008. )
* the check engine light comes on because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working, and the car is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. (this has occurred in the past, perhaps 2005. We had to pay for new air flow sensors. )
* light bulbs frequently burn out in the taillights. * the front suspension makes very loud noises when going over bumps or rough roads. The support bushing for the suspension needs to be replaced. (this began happening in December 2007. Lexus told us we need new struts. )
* a throbbing wind noise from the moonroof. One cannot have the moonroof open at the same time as the windows or ones ear drums experience severe pain. (this has existed from purchase. )
I believe the 1999 Lexus RX 300 might very well be a good candidate for the lemon laws, yet we're not seeing problems being addressed with recalls. This problem occurred on 12/11/08.

Loud Engine Noise problem of Mazda Cx-7
The vehicle is a 2007 Mazda Cx-7. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was JM3ER29327_. I started the car, like I regularly do and the engine/timing chain made a horrible sound that got me very worried since this car is taking care very good since its the only car in the household. I contacted Mazda and they said the car had a warranty extension for a l3t engine variable valve timing noise and timing chain noise which is cause by " actual failure due to defects in workmanship or materials in accordance with Mazda warranty policy and procedures. This warranty extension was for 70,000miles or 7 seven years which ever came first, so my car was not cover since it had 101,000. My concern and disappointment is that after searching and taking to other Cx-7 owners the (2007-08) models all had issues with this and Mazda did not made a recall just extended the warranty. Cars with mileage of as low as 24,000 were affected by it, so its clearly not a wear and tear issue of the car. If that is not replace the engine might be damage and Mazda will not even offer a goodwill assistance. I still make monthly payments on the car and its impossible for me to pay $1200 in something that is clearly stated by Mazda is a "defect in workmanship or materials". Its a shame that so many other customers are still battling with this issue and Mazda just hides behind their power and attorneys. This loud engine noise issue occurred Nov. 28, 2012.

Loud Engine Noise problem of Mercedes Benz ML320
The car was a 2000 Mercedes Benz Ml320. I have been the owner of a 2000 mercedes Ml320 for about 6 years. The car was purchased from the dealer with approx. 30,000 miles. Today it has approx 73,000 miles. Since owning it, I have had several problems which were all out of warranty and which I feel were unwarranted and were not seriously attended to by mb or the dealer:
this complaint form was very difficult to complete according to the fields provided. The equipment information included is not correct and was included just to get to the form. I felt that the problems with the car should be reported specifically the esp light and the air bag problems
at about 51,000 miles, the airbag became inoperative. I was told that it would cost about $2000 to repair and correct. Dealer offered a small adjustment. I chose not to make the investment. At about 65,000 miles, I began having very loud noises that seemed to come from the crankshaft and appeared to be a brake problem. Dealer did try to determine what it was, but couldn't isolate the problem unless "he had to take the whole car apart" there was a related problem because the esp light would come on intermittently that the dealer advised could not be isolated unless I did the work on the brake and the crankshaft:"
at about 72,000 miles, the car developed oil leaks from the motor. Est. Cost of repair was $2000. We are watching and waiting. In may, I was advised that there is a recall notice on the cruise control of the car. No word on that issue since. Because of the cruise control notice I received, I was prompted to write you about these other issues and became further concerned about the esp light and the faulty air bag the care has had. ,
car is driven an average of 150 miles a week in mostly city driving. Car is serviced but not by the dealer because of the high cost and relative dissatisfaction from the service provided. Updated 07/27/11. This problem occurred on 06/01/2004.

Loud Engine Noise problem of Mitsubishi Endeavor
Blown engine on a well maintained, single owner 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor with under 70,000 miles. At 55mph and without any prior warning (e. G. No warning lights on dash or changes in dashboard gauges), the car made an extremely loud noise (almost high revving like), became difficult to steer and rapidly was losing power. The battery light came on followed by the "service engine soon" and while the car would turn over and start the noise became louder and the car would stall out. After being towed to the garage, the car would not start at all and I was informed that the engine was blown. My mechanic also noticed that my driver side floor mat was soaked which I had actually noticed 2 weeks prior when was cleaning my car but had thought that I had accidentally gotten it wet during the washing process. Given that we have had no rain since then nor had I washed the car since 2 weeks prior, it was clear that this was not an issue of getting it wet. My mechanic then said that of the 6 2004/2005 Endeavors that he has repaired in the past year, he had seen the same issue and while some resolved with the unblocking of some line that had to do with the ac he also noted that the others required a much more extensive and costly repair due to the heating element which could cause the engine issue. He also noted that each of the Endeavors with the soaked driver side mat issue had also lost their radios. Ironically my radio had just gone out the week prior (it comes on as if it is working but no sound out of the speakers) & I had made an appt with mitsubish to resolve. The more I read online the more I see the same issues that I and my mechanic have noted therefore it seems like there is clearly a very costly patern of problems with this particular line/year of mits vehicles. Given that I bought my car new in Jan 2005 and serviced it accordingly, this issue seems suspect. This problem occurred on Friday, December 2, 2011.

Loud Engine Noise problem of Volvo XC90
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Volvo Xc90. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Volvo Xc90 is YV1CZ85245_. Sunday morning (10. 14. 12) car making a horrible noise from engine block. Sounds like loose bolts rattling around inside engine block. Checked trusted Volvo forums on web. I have had four Volvos between myself and my wife: 2000 s40 (wife), 2001 s80 and now 2005 s40 (wife) and my Xc90 - used these forums to stay up on latest issues/maintenance. There were several posts with identical issue with this model, year and v8 engine. Apparently, ongoing issue with counter balance shaft bearing. Design flaw allows rust to occur at bearing and then then cb-shaft fails. Will cause incredible damage to engine - maybe even death if occurs at high speeds. Called dealer this morning, they are familiar with issue, wanted me to drive in or tow. Cost is prohibitive and based on legions of similar consumer reports, am already certain of diagnosis. The failure date was October 14, 2012.. Read more...

Loud Engine Noise problem of Cadillac SRX
The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Cadillac Srx. There was crash involved with this problem. My husband purchased my vehicle in October, 2006. Within 2 months it was returned to the service department of the dealer. The chrome handle had started peeling on the driver side, the rear window seal was leaking whenever it would rain and the check engine light was on. The leak was repaired, I was told that the engine light was on because we took the factory wheels off and they would call us when the handle came in. That never happened. Toward the middle of 2008 the following messages started showing up. Traction control on and power to engine reduced causing my vehicle to stop in traffic suddenly this caused cars to swerve around me to prevent impact. The day in question I had just picked my 16 yr old daughter up from her audition. We were merging onto I-75 when I heard a loud sound come from the rear of the vehicle. My vehicle immediately spun out of control heading for the oncoming cars, big rigs and trucks. I missed the cement wall by the grace of god and landed in a snow embankment. The timing chains and rear axle shaft were replaced and that did not help. Within 24 hours the vehicle was doing the same thing shutting power down to the engine and I had to return it to the dealer. They finally replaced the door handle after finding out that it had cut my finger causing me to receive 3 stitches. I no longer feel safe driving this vehicle and would like for gm to step up and take it back without penalty. If I wanted the headache of being in and out of someone's service center I would have purchased a used vehicle or what they call a hoopty. This loud engine noise issue occurred Friday, January 16, 2009.
