Replace the battery it has a bad cell. When you got it started the vehicle charged it long enough so it would start for your mechanic. But it needs a battery.

My '06 Honda Odyssey has gotten noisy recently.

If it is filled up to the "full hot" mark then you are okay, fluid wise. It almost sounds like once it gets warmed up, it starts running better. The "growling" noise (especially when turning) could be from it not getting enough fluid. Other than that, your power steering pump maybe on its last legs, and it is taking time to warm up before it starts pumping fluid correctly. Just make sure that you power steering resevoir is completely filled to the proper mark.

I have a 1972 bmw automatic Bavaria with 1975 3.0si engine Differential makes noise.

you would only experience problems from the diff if there was a substantial increase in torque from the different engine as there would be less than 10% difference in torque ratings , Any noise from the diff would be naturally occurring from wear or oil
diff noises indicating bearing problems are a whine on drive or coasting , an growl on deceleration and a harmonic whine or growl when the vehicle is held at steady speed Other than those indications , I would be more inclined to suspect wheel bearings and brake associated noises
wheel bearings are normally more pronounced on cornering

Hi! I tried to start my car (2000 Chrysler Cirrus) this morning, but it just makes a muffled growling noise an/or a ticking noise. My friend came by to jump start it, but that didn't work. Any ideas?

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me that your starter has just broke it's last leg. Many things can cause the starter to go bad. If all you hear is a ticking noise, then chances are that the starter gave up. You can have someone take it off and go to a parts store and have them test it for you, (some MAY charge you for this while others won't). This will tell you if your starter needs to be replaced. Be prepared. Considering the year, a replacement may very well be tastey expensive. Good luck. Hope this helps.

I need instructions on how to replace a fuel pump in a chevy sierre 2500 truck.

Those are pressurized pump in the fuel tank. You should have a inspection access plate on top of the fuel tank(s). If there is more than one tank be sure the relays and the system to change over tanks is working properly. First thing starting it , in the morning , turn all out side noise off, turn key to on position just short of cranking the engine over ,and you should be able to hear the pump in the tank , making a low growling noise , if it is working propery , this will last about 30 seconds while the pump builds pressure.

In my Sonata I went out to start it and it just made clicking noises. What does that mean?

This sounds like your starter or starter relay went. Check fuses to make sure they are all good.
