Question Asked: Metal-on-metal sound near water pump/belt areas?
January 19, 2011, 12:59 PM
I had the water pump, timing belt, spark plugs, and all gaskets changed 6 months ago. Two months ago a rather loud and annoying metal-on-metal sound has been present when the engine is on. First thoughts were a belt, a roller, a bearing, maybe the water pump. Mechanic took the engine apart and changed a roller, but everything else is checked out and running perfectly. He cannot pinpoint the source of the sound. To me, it sounds like a belt or a roller is causing it, but it's not. It does not "accelerate" with the engine, it just is almost like a very loud constant noise. It's annoying at best, but if I don't find the source I'm just constantly driving around thinking my car's gonna break at any minute. I don't need that stress. Any ideas?

The rubber seal along the bottom of my windshield is cracked and pulling away from the glass. What is this part called? I need to find an estimate of how much it'll cost me to replace it.
Question Asked: Front struts failing again 2 yrs after replacement?

I replaced the front struts 2 years ago (at about 70,000). Now, they're making that annoying racket again over bumps. Should this be happening again so soon? The car only has 87,000 on it.
Question Asked: Low engine idle
February 19, 2009, 03:09 PM
Lately my Camry idles very low when stopped (in gear), making the car vibrate noticably. When in neutral, the idle is a bit higher and seems normal. Can I get the idle adjusted, or do I need to replace the idle air control valve?
