Grinding or buzzing sound left side of engine near power…

Customer Question
Grinding or buzzing sound...

Grinding or buzzing sound left side of engine near power steering resevoir. Almost looks like steering fluid bubbling or boiling. Engine service light on.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

Fluid was a little low but back up. No whining noises while turning that I've noticed.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2007 Nissan Murano

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Murano yourself? What have you tried so far?

No probably will get it serviced but would like to identify problem if possible to inform mechanic.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The car has cut out 3 times on me and an additional message "slip" and vdc off shows up on the dashboard when this has happened.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
