Hey Scott... this sounds a little serious.. 1. will it start? 2. does it make bad noises when it does start?

If it will not start, and makes bad noises when you try to start it, this is a serious issue. It time for a professional to look at it. Please keep me posted. Thanks

It makes a clicking noise from the rear end. The mechanics said it was the suspension and it was normal now it is getting worse and there is only 325 miles on it. What could it be?


if it has independent suspension then the clicking noise may be a failing cv joint (" U" )in the drive axle
suspension don't click--rattle ,knock squeak yes but not click

Clunking noise when steering wheel is moved back and forth.


Sounds like you have ball joint or steering linkage problems..have some one set on the seat and make hard turns right and left while you watch for excessive movement " linkage or ball joint slap " before the wheels actually turn..or jack the front end up one side at a time and with the steering wheel strapped in place"bungee chord " move each wheel up and down and left to right..find the excess movement and go from there..good luck

Rear end clunking


the rear differentials have been known to have some problems. you may have to open up the differential to make sure there are not broken or badly worn pieces inside. also check your u-joints.

2009 tao tao 150cc atv makes grinding noise and clunks in forward and reverse, I hear noise in the rear and the front sprocket jumps, what can it be? thanks


My first check would be the condition of the chain and sprockets. Check to make sure all of the teeth are still ok and if the tension of the chain is correct and that it is well lubed.

If the noise is more pronounced from the rear and chain and sprockets are ok, it could be the differential that has either failed bearings or damaged gears.
