Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 97 chevy s10 and their is a knocking noise when i turn left or right

Any time I turn but especially when i stop the truck entirely, like at a stop sign, then make a turn their is a knockin noise until i get the truck driving straight again. It also happens when i am parked and attempt to pull away from the crub. its much worse when im turning left, the problem seems to get worse after i have been driving rough roads (AKA Dirt) then driving on pavement. i was thinking it might be CV joint or spider gears? any ideas would be a help.

What is happening is your spider gears and side axle gears are probably going out... it might also be the ring and pinion... just happened to my 2000 S10 and turns out spider gears were toasted... have a mechanic check out your differential. you pop the clutch alot?

I have 96 chevy blazer it has a knockin noise in the engine n gets louder as I accelerate wat is my problem ?

This is an internal problem that will only get worse. Most likely a rod bearing, slight chance a wrist pin. Either way it's not good. To repair could simple or not. You just won't know until you get inside and see what the rest of the motor looks like. Sorry for the bad news.

Absolutely; wasn't positive until you mentioned the 'hum'. Bad bearings first warning sign is usually the humming noise before the vibration but since you have both, I'd be shocked if it weren't the bearinig, especially since you've got new rotors. In the past, a badly turned or warped rotor would mimic a bad bearing. Best of luck.

Knockin noise in engine

Could be a lifter getting sticky. What engine, amount of mileage, and how often does it get serviced, and type of oil used, can all play a part in that.
