Problem 1: I came back to my car yesterday and I heard a beeping noise. But this isn't the typical Memo, limit or timer beep. The damned thing beeps continuously and doesn't turn off. The only time it stops is when I have the door open... at which time it makes the usual "door open" chime, but as soon as the door is closed, it starts beeping again. For the time being I've unplugged the speaker under the steering colunm until I figure out what it is. Now given that my OBC says that its -37C all the time, it may be the cold temp warning, but the temp has always read -37 and never caused the beeping before.
Problem 2: When I make right had turns, I hear this awful clunking/heavy grinding noise, it sounds like its coming from the back, but I can't but positive as I can feel the vibration at my feet. It doesn't sound quite as bad when I'm not on the gas through a turn, but is sometimes still evident. Everything sounds normal when I'm making a left. Could it be play in the driveshaft?
Problem 3: When I start my car on a cold morning, the idle bounces around like crazy. In hot weather, the idle drops extremely low... and ocassionally causes the car to stall. There is a CEL being thrown, be it comes and goes as the idle bounces around. I've been told that it might be the AIC valve might be stuck. Also, when I give the car gas and the rpm's go back to Idle, I'll hear a hissing noise. Might this be a vacuum leak?
The last time I posted here, I got a lot of help... so I'm back for more. Thanks in advance for your time.
