The noise does not come from the engine area; it seems like it comes from the rear of the car. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Q. My 2010 Honda CR-V with four-wheel drive has about 106,500 miles. At 35-40 miles per hour, the car makes a loud rumbling noise. It doesn’t happen when the car is accelerating from a stop, and it doesn’t seem to be there at highway speeds. The noise does not come from the engine area; it seems like it comes from the rear of the car. Any ideas on what could be wrong? A. I would start with an overall diagnosis of the vehicle, including a performance test of the engine. Something as simple as a slight engine misfire might be enough to cause a slight shudder, but not enough to set a check-engine light. Another possibility is an internal transmission failure. Some Honda models, such as the CR-V, had an internal failure that caused a fracture of a shaft support bearing/ring. The other, less expensive issue is the rear differential … [Read more...] about Why does my car make a rumbling noise?

Published 4:56 pm, Friday, January 20, 2017 BY RAY MAGLIOZZI Dear Car Talk: Today, as I released the clutch, I noticed that my car would start driving away like normal, even though my foot was never on the gas pedal. Instead of stalling out, as it normally would do if I didn’t give it gas, it just started moving, as if it had an automatic transmission. Any idea what’s going on? It’s a 2009 Subaru Outback. — Kelly Hang on while I ask NORAD if there’s been any paranormal activity in your area, Kelly. Actually, I’m not sure anything is wrong. If you’re good with a clutch, you can get most manual-transmission cars moving in gear without using the gas pedal. And most cars will go 10 mph or so without you stepping on the gas at all. But it sounds like you’re saying something has changed; I’m guessing it’s the idle speed. If you look at the tachometer, you may see the needle pointing to 1,300, 1,500 or 2,000 rpm … [Read more...] about This manual is acting like an automatic
24 “11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.” 11:00:00 This hour begins with President Wayne Palmer making his address to the American people, and as noted last time, he’s not whispering! President Wayne is going on and on about how the American people are going to rise above fear and bigotry and preserve the American values. Biscuit Lennox firmly disagrees. Karen Hayes, the National Security Advisor, goes marching over to Biscuit, really ticked off that he has approved a bunch of civil rights-violating nonsense that’s she’s pretty certain President Wayne did not approve. Biscuit’s argument is that the Constitution wasn’t written in the nuclear age — it’s a non-living document, and that the government can’t hide behind it. Argue. Argue. Argue. And Biscuit asserts that Karen may not be cut out for National Security. Wait. What? Chad Lowe? Brother of Rob? Ex-husband of Hillary “Two-Time Oscar Winner” Swank? Yep.
