I have a 2013 Nissan Altima and just today when I am driving, the rpm is higher and making a noise when I am trying to get to 50mp

I am trying to accelerate to above 50 on the streets and it seems like the rpm is working too hard to get there. It's making a noise that I haven't heard yet on my car. Had it two years regular oil changes and upkeep no major issues so far.

My car has 92000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

How to Identify and Fix Common car Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced mechanics :

A failing or dirty sensor can send incorrect data, resulting in too much or too little fuel going to the engine. This can result in a rough running engine that is louder than normal. Bad or Dirty Spark Plugs: Bad spark plugs can cause the vehicle to misfire which will make it run louder.
Damaged CV joint: The most common cause of a clicking or popping sound from the wheels is a broken CV joint. The CV joints, which stand for Constant Velocity, are essentially the wrists of your vehicle`s steering system.
Common reasons for this to happen:

Loose connections at the positive and negative battery terminals. Very dirty or clogged air filters can also cause your engine to underperform. Loose timing belts are another likely cause. A mechanic will check these and replace them if they appear loose and worn.

The most likely reasons your Nissan Altima is shaking are a malfunctioning engine component or damaged axles. is shaking or vibrating when you`re driving. This is often it`s an indication that your spark plugs are worn out or too old.
An engine that is suddenly running louder than normal is usually crying for help. In the majority of cases an underlying problem is causing the engine to rumble. Problems can range from something simple like dirty spark plugs to the more serious failing muffler or catalytic converter.
If you feel your car is more noisy than usual there could be an issue with cylinder compression. If there is an uneven air-fuel ration in the cylinder, combustion can occur at higher or lower rates than normal.
The most common reasons a Nissan Altima has a rattling noise are the ball joints, struts or strut mount, or a problem with the sway bar links. Search our network of RepairPal Certified shops near you to speak with a technician about your issue.
Low Transmission Fluid: For both manual and automatic transmissions, the primary cause for whining when in gear is low transmission fluid. If the fluid is too low, then the internal components of the transmission are not lubricated properly.
Loose components

If you notice your car vibrates at certain speeds, but not every time you drive at that speed, there`s a chance the vibrations are caused by loose suspension components or bearings. You might notice that the vibrations increase if you hit a bump in the road and continue until you stop the car.

The most prevalent cause of vibration is problems with your wheels or tires. The potential problems include improper wheel and tire balance, uneven tire wear, separated tire tread, out of round tires, damaged wheels and even loose lug nuts.
The CVT requires fluid pressures up to 1,200 psi to operate and it must pass through small passageways, which may result in a momentary hiss or squeal sound. This noise does not affect transmission performance, function or reliability.
Your Brake Rotors Are Warped

The most common reason to the question “why does my car shake when I brake?” has to do with damaged or warped brake rotors. Brake rotors work with brake pads to help stop your wheels from spinning and as a result, stop your vehicle.

The CVT requires fluid pressures up to 1,200 psi to operate and it must pass through small passageways, which may result in a momentary hiss or squeal sound. This noise does not affect transmission performance, function or reliability.

I own a 2000 f150 lariat 4 x4. 5.4 l. Started getting a loud grinding noise front passager brakes. Replaced brakes and wheel
ANSWER : Hi there. While using junkyard or used parts (especially brake or suspension parts) is highly discouraged and can cause major damage, it is unlikely that they caused the aluminum wheel to split in half. In most cases, this is caused by hitting a pothole or other obstruction in the road. A glancing blow against a blunt object like a curb can also cause this type of damage. However, if the brakes came apart or a brake component broke, it could in theory cause the same damage. My advice to you is to not drive the vehicle further until you’ve replaced the brakes and wheels with new components for safety.

Honda pilot 2013 making noise "woodpecker" like while we are trying to charge the battery. Thd noise stops if push on the brake.
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. The noise can be coming from a number of components, and locating the noise will be most beneficial. If it started when you were charging the battery, make sure battery charger was set to the right setting. There may be an issue with one of the electrical components such as the turn signal flasher, which is designed to make a similar noise. You may also want to check the brake lights and see if they were working while you were pressing the brake to stop the ticking. The noise must be happening to locate and find out what it was. If the noise has stopped since, there will be no real way of knowing what. If the noise is continuing to occur, and you would like more assistance locating it, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.

Why is my car making this rattling noise?
ANSWER : Hi there. The rattling noise could be the drive belt or pulley that is loose when not under a load. When turning the wheels or on highway driving conditions, the noise may not be there for the engine is under a load. Try turning on the air conditioner and see if the noise goes away. If so, then the tensioner could have a weak spring.

Car makes grinding noise – 1996 Chevrolet Corsica
ANSWER : Hey there, thanks for writing in. I would have a professional mechanic check out the constant velocity joints on your vehicle. One or more of them may be worn enough to cause the noises you describe. S/he can diagnose and replace any failed CV joints.

I was driving my 2013 Nissan Altima 5 miles or less. When I threw it in Park I heard a noise.
ANSWER : Hello – most likely the neutral safety switch, or its circuit, are malfunctioning. If your dome light also no longer works, there will be a blown fuse that also keeps your neutral safety switch from working. I would recommend having an inspection done on why your car doesn’t shift out of Park completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.

When I’m driving get to 30mph the rpm shoots up and doesn’t go fast gets to 50 and rpm is over 3 changed all oils
ANSWER : Considering the mileage on the vehicle, it’s be hard to be exact. The poor fluid condition may be the cause of the transmission slipping or it may be the effect of mechanical issues in the transmission. A good rule of thumb with automatic transmissions is to service them every 4 years or 60,000 miles – whichever comes first. If the transmission has not been serviced within the last 100,000 miles at least, the clutches may be worn to the point of slipping. If you want to try servicing the transmission in hopes it solves the problem, this is the way (hesitantly) I would recommend doing it because of the mileage and unknown service history. Have a transmission flush performed, followed with the transmission pan being removed and the filter replaced. This way, all the contaminated fluid is removed and the filter – most likely clogged with debris – is also replaced.
Why I recommend this method is because the trans flush service exchanges all the fluid but does not replace the filter. And, the traditional method of draining the pan and replacing the filter does not remove all the contaminated fluid.

The reason I am hesitant is because of the mileage and unknown service history. Best case scenario, the transmission works fine afterwards. Worst case scenario, the transmission may not shift at all afterwards due to the worn clutches. For these reasons, I recommend the vehicle be taken to a local transmission specialist for inspection.

Car makes noises and jumps when turning driving straight js okay. I believe its cv axld but mechanic said it was transmission.
ANSWER : The problem sounds like it’s in the transaxle. When turning the two axles, turn at different speeds and the transaxle gears will allow them to normally turn. In your case, the spider differential limited slip gears are binding causing the jumping. Have the transaxle inspected and diagnosed by a transmission mechanic.

If you’d like a second opinion on this, contact a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will be able to diagnose the noise you’re hearing and the rough driving symptoms firsthand.
