2006 Nissan Altima Q&A
2006 Nissan Altima Question: Loud, helicopter like noise, with a little kick.
The best way I can describe the problem, is while I'm driving it sounds like a helicopter is above me... When I first heard the noise, I actually had to roll my window down and look overhead, when I realized it was my car making the noise and not a helicopter, I figured something was up. The kick issue, happens only sometimes and it's more when I accelerate, or go up a little incline. It sounds like the engine jumped under the hood... Car has approx. 140k +\- miles, if that makes a difference. Still runs like a beast though. Thanks for the help. - ilovesnow
If the helicopter is following you any time the car is in motion but not when stopped,, have the front hub bearings checked for the noise and a scan test to see if engine has a misfire for the "kick". Check engine light on or been on? - pushrod
