I just started hearing a whistling sound while driving but the sound stops when brakes are applied. Could there be something wrong with my brakes?
Question Asked: Hesitant start
June 28, 2010, 07:10 PM
Upon turning the ignition on this morning, the car didn't
start as fast as usual. There was like a 1 second hesitation before the engine turned completely over. I also noticed that the clock was off by 3 hours. There were two more hesitant starts today as well. I reset the clock after I started the car the second time but noticed that when I returned to the car and started it for the 3rd time that the clock was back to 12:00 again. Once I got home and turned off the engine, I tried to restart immediately but it wouldn't start and was almost dead.I waited a few seconds and retried but no start. I retried once again after about 2 or 3 minutes and it made sounds but wouldn't turn over. I hooked up the battery charger and it started right away after about 5 minutes. However, after at least 45 minutes on the charger, there's still some hesitation. There's an initial start up sound then there's a one second hestation before completely turning over. The radio, wipers, and lights are strong. Could this be an alternator problem? What other deficits could there be?

I am experiencing some vibration in the front wheels when I am coming to a stop. Mostly when I am traveling at a higher rate of speed ( like exiting the freeway[as I am slowing down]) My brakes are good could the problem be the rotors?

I have noticed a roaring sound when the car was idle. I turned the air off and the sound went away. Would you happen to know what the problem might be?

If my car makes a squealing noise when I brake, is it reasonable to say that I may need brake pads. There's no dragging sounds just the squealing.
