noise

    I have a mad plan! I am after a gear box for a 1966 bug based project (Bugatti 35B vw base). It would make great sense to have the noise from a straight cut gear box. The year is not so important really just swing axle. The previous owner had run the gear box dry which sounds great but does...

    Hi, Just bought a Mk2 Golf (1.8 driver 91) and have this knocking noise when I turn the front nearside wheel. Is this normal? as the other side doesn't do it. See video below. Also is this shock absorber leaking from the pic? And is that a straight unbolt job...

    Hi All, Just started reading Gareth Loy's Musimathics books (which are excellent by the way) and even though he is kind of joking, near the beginning he says: "...we can only hear frequencies between about 17 to 17000Hz (higher generally for youths and women, lower for rock concert...

    As the title says, i have a low rumbling kind of rubbing noise, which i think is coming from one of the back wheels. The noise stops if i gently press my brakes (not enough to stop though) and can get pretty loud if i go 50mph +... Does this sound like it could be something as simple as the...

    The gearbox in our splitty van is making quite loud rumbling noises, which seem to have got worse recently. The rumbling noise is there from start up when in neutral - it goes away when the clutch is fully depressed. The noise seems to get worse when pulling away - either stationary or...

    Hi all! My 71 early bay has a really bad knocking noise from the rear when going over bumps or rough ground. I have fitted new shocks on the rear to cure this but no luck. I don't think it's the mountings as the noise doesn't happen when I pull away. Any ideas?:confused:

    A couple of times in the past, I've popped my bus into reverse and gone up some slight inclines backwards, and I've found that the gearbox starts making a grinding noise, as if the gear had not quite engaged and the gears were grinding together. I always assumed it was just that, as the problem...

    I am fitting a pair of 40 IDFs to my camper's stock Type 4 2L. I want more power but I also want to keep it as quiet as possible. I have heard about intake vibrations being damped by unifying the intakes so I am wondering why I shouldn't keep the stock dry air filter? (This has the additional...

    I've been having engine problems with my 1600, so it's heads are stripped down. So I needed another engine to keep me going for a couple of weeks, and bought (as far as I can tell) a mid sixties 1500. The seller said he'd put the 12v (200mm clutch) flywheel from a 1600 (obviously 12v) on it...
