This noise sounds like a bearing that needs to change but I already changed all the bearings in the van. Have been told by three different repair shops that the turbo is going through. But there have been no signs as mentioned on the internet about the turbo. I'm still able to build great speed and no black blue or white smoke. Not even regular diesel smoke seen. I have taken all the precautions to prevent the black diesel smoke. Please advise as a turbo for the Ford Ranger Thunder is very costly.
In the last year or so, my car makes what I'd call a squeaking/bubbling noise when cold. It's not very loud or anything, but it's noticeable -- even more so when the clutch and/or gas are depressed. This only happens when the car is cold, and the noise goes away in 5 minutes or so -- by the time the engine temperature has stabilized

I recently had a 90k service -- all fluids were flushed, a few hoses were replaced -- but the sound still remains (although not quite a strong as before). Any ideas?
and when slowing down it jumps hard as well, it had some frontend damage and was repaired and the warning light is a yellow triangle with and exclaimation point. Trying to find out what steps to follow first. It seems to shift up and down fine with a slow increase of speed and letting it slow on it own.

I need to drAIN SOME OIL.
my mustang is having problems due to hoses. i've had this problem before, but i don't know which hoses are causing it. my rpm idles high for long when i start the car, and when it idles, it will sometimes squeak then dip far below 1000 rpm and then die. it usually idles just under 1000 rpm. it's also losing power giving me bad mileage. i was told it was because a hose that creates a vacuum is loose and needs to be connected firmly. which hose is this and where is it located under the hood. it would save me money and time in the future if i can just fix this myself. i have a 2001 v6 manual ford mustang. thanks!

I just wanted to make sure I get the most life out of the truck as possible, and hoping I can get a list of the maintenance I should do at mile intervals?
I just bought a 1996 with 215,000 miles and the check engine light turned on. Auto parts store gave me code 170, and I'm wondering if others have experience with this and have recommendations?
