Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

Every time I put on my $ wheel drive, there is a loud banging under the car. Also the truck begins to slam back and forth. I have already had the water pump replaced, put a brand new transmition in it, 4 new tires, and just recently a new muffler and calipers. I dont know what to do?

98 lincoln continental making noise when not accelerating. No noise when in park but when driving and ease of gas noise starts until I begin to accelerate again.


Hi Audrey:
I would be suspicious of a worn universal in the drive train.
When under load, the pressure hold the joint tight so there is no noise. When not under load, the slack in the joint allows it to move, making the noise.
To track it down I would put the car on a hoist so the wheels can be turned back and forth. the slack component will soon be identified.
Cheers

Smoke coming back passenger side tire smoking and made loud bang sound


My guess is the brake is being applied by the ABS system due to a leaking hydraulic valve in the hydraulic control section of the ABS module.

Loud banging noise right front wheel. shimmies ,can't drive over 25mph


I agree with the axle CV joint choice.
Could also be a brake or wheel bearing failure, but the CV joint is the most likely given the symptoms.

Loud banging noise when i go over a bump on passenger side front and a clicking when i pull into a parking spot or three point turn both left and right took it to dealership say they cant find anything


The clicking is the halfshafts or front wheel drive axles. I have a hard time believing that they have went bad already but anything is possible. The banging noise is something in the suspension, perhaps struts or a sway bar link.

Loud slam & jolt after touching breaks & loud pop in sharp turn


First the obvious, I can't tell by sound descriptions. But it is helpful nonetheless. Have you visually inspected wheels? Removed wheel and looked at brake pads? Calipers sticking? Have they ever been rebuilt? System purged of old brake fluid? Are blazers front wheel drive? or even 4 wd? then front drive system is causing noise when steering. Not front driven? Then I don't have a clue.

2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4L twin cam. When put in drive I hear a loud bang and when driving it has a quieter bang when it shifts gears.


Check your motor mounts, it sound like your motor is rocking back and forth. You can confirm this by watching the engine while someone shifts it in and out of gear for you.
