Its me again, 03 Venture, 93K miles on it. I keep on hearing this funny noise in the summer time, I usually hear it when the AC is on and sounds like metal can tinkering sound, when I'm stoped or when I am taking off. After I speed up I no longer hear the noise. Probably it is still the but I simply just don't hear it I showed it to me mechanic, and could not find anything wrong with it. Dealership told me it could be the heat shield, my mechanic said that mine did not have one
So, after about a year I still can't figure what this noise is.
#21 of 23 Chevy Venture - problem after flat tire
Sep 13, 2010 (7:15 pm)
I have a 2004 Chevy Venture FWD only - 140k miles.
Had a flat tire on the right front while on interstate about a week ago.
Put on donut tire and everything seemed fine.
Then, later in the day sounded like a tire rub was happening after reaching about 20mph.
I had the blown tire fixed and put back on thinking the sound was the donut tire.
Sound is still there, but not as loud.
Sounds like a tire rub, but no tire rubbing evident.
Worse when turning to right and less when turning to left.
Things checked -
- wheel bearing - no excessive play
- CV boot - in tact with no tears - no knocking noise when turning presently
- tie rods look as normal as they always have been
- wheel well molding in place and not damaged in any way
I've also driven my spare care next to the van at highway speed and you can't hear the noise when driving next to it. Sounds like it is coming from the directly underneath the front passenger area.
Any assistance or advice welcomed!!

Could be air conditioner compressor. Open hood and listen for sound on passenger side. Have someone turn air off and on while you listen. If the sound appears when the air is on, It is probably air compressor. If the noise is always there, check, for bad idler or tensioner. You can use an auto stethoscope or a piece of 1/2" pipe to locate the problem. In the case of the pipe listen through the pipe while moving to different locations.
