Internal heater blower motor issues can cause a ticking noise from the heater blower when the fan is on. To correct this concern, replace the heater blower motor with a revised unit.
A broken retaining bracket for parking brake cable can cause a scraping noise on hard acceleration from the driveline area. Replacing the retainer bracket and securing it should fix this problem.
If a buzzing noise is coming from the exhaust at different engine speeds and conditions, this is commonly caused by the heat shields on catalytic converters coming loose at points. The buzzing is the metal on metal contact. Installing a large worm clamp around the catalytic converter and heat shield assembly will prevent the noise and secure the shields.
If a droning noise is coming from the fuel tank, it may be caused by a noisy fuel pump check valve. A fuel pump assembly, with a revised unit, is available address this concern.
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
