Question about 2000 Saturn Ls 4dr Sedan
Heater fan shorts out when the car hits bumps. Has anyone had this problem? I am hoping for a start point, maybe a wire or plug-in that comes loose?
Hay I would check your sway bar in the front .The bal may have came out of the seat located under front wheel well. Also they could be just loose. Check by rocking your jeep side to side .

if its clicking when you turn the wheal, then its a cv joint. If its making a bump bump bump noise as you go down the road and increases with speed and slows with speed then its probably a bering, It sounds like you have hit something and caused your ball joints to damage. take a board 2x4 about 2 foot long. jack up the car in the front, just enough to fit the board under the tires. At each tire lift the board and see if you have any movement in the wheal. The movement you are looking for will be up and down, not side to side. Your steering moves side to side. Your ball joints give you limited up and down rotation movement to allow your car to handle bumps. If its in access of an inch rotation then there is your problem. Depending on the car, I would probably look at salvage yards first then go to the part store and compare prices. Because some junk yards are chaging near new prices for used stuff. Also your struts may be shot also.

If you aren't afraid of jacking up the vehicle, you can test to see where the problem is coming from. Jack the vehicle up by the pinch well (most newer cars have grooves cut out or that can be popped out behind the front wheels). When the wheel is in the air, try moving it side to side, then up and down. Excessive side to side movement indicates a tie rod end, up and down indicates a ball joint, and all around indicates a wheel bearing which would also be a cause for the clicking sound you are hearing.
Most auto shops will check this for you free of charge when you get an oil change, since they're trying to sell you things anyway.

The fuel pump is located at the fuel tank and the plugs are located in the top of the engine block. you will see four identical wires going into the top of the block. If you pull those out carefully you will see the spark plugs inside. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

You need ball joints maybe. you may have a loose axle nut maybe. you may have a loose tire maybe, your alignment may be way off.
