Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

Clunking noise in the fron end of vehicle

Makes this noise when going forward, backwards and turning and/or hitting curbs (driveways). Noise appeared after I replaced the left front hub assy. I paid local shop to replace struts, outer tie rod ends and ball joints in an attempt to get rid of noise. What did I do wrong?

My 2003 buick rendezvous started making clunking noise in front end when I backed out of driveway now it's making it all the time and brakes peddle got soft when problem started can anyone help me


Take the vehicle to a tire shop and ask them to inspect the brakes and front end for worn broken parts, DO NOT DRIVE THIS UNTIL THAT INSPECTION IS DONE. In most cases this inspection is free, call around.

My Dodge Grand Caravan is making a humming noise as you accelerate, while turning left it stops but gets worse while turning right. I replaced the left front wheel hub and no improvement, I need help


if hub bearing replacement did not fix the noise

when noises are on left and right turns
that has CV joints /drive shafts
would say they are the issue
replace both sides

and replace the left hand hub bearing at the same time

I have a Kia grand carnival 2007 everytime we go over a bump, driveway or even a roundabout the front of the car makes a clunking sound.


have the front wheel bearings , top and bottom ball joints , steeering track rod joints ,suspension top/bottom mounts checked for wear , tightness etc , try pushing down on the front end a few times to make vehicle go up and down , does this make the same noise , if it does it would indicate the suspension is the issue , keep me posted if you wish

Clunking noise in rear end when reversing then going forward


The rear suspension has no drive parts as your car is a FWD, front wheel drive. There are parts on the wheel axles which have bearings and also Brakes.
If you have rear disc brakes, the inner part of the rotor has a drum for Emergency brakes and these linings often peel off their brake shoe. The loose lining can get ground up in the turning rotor hub. The Emergency brakes are pinned to the brake backing plate and can clunk when the shoes shift. If you have rear drum brakes the shoes may be out of adjustment or worn out leaving room to rock as vehicle direction changes.
Bearings, excess play can cause noise. Suspension brackets, bushings within the mounts for these components can wear out. When parts are moving in 1 direction a "set" is grooved into the rubber parts. Changing direction of travel will unseat the part and make noise.
Traveling sound. You may be hearing a sound you suspect is in the rear of the car, but is actually a cradle mount around the Firewall. Sound travels through metal.
You need to get the rear wheels off the ground and check for play in all the components. For the cradle mounts, have someone ride the brake pedal and shift the transmission forward and backward to see if noise is generated or excess play is seen.

How do check the front wheel bearing and cv joint on 2001honda civic


The wheel hub brg assy you will hear when going from
around 25 thru 45 mph

Then you remove the brake rotor & feel for wear in the bearing
Not so easy with drive axles in there

If you do one side-- do both (replace)

The CV Joints are checked on a lift or off the ground
by hand, for ripped boots & play in the joints

Next you go into a parking lot or driveway where you can
go forward to check inner joints for a noise, with the wheels
turned all the way & backwards for the outer joints making
noise,wheels turned fully, both directions

It sounds like a problem within the front differential, possibly broken spider gears. If so broken gear shrapnel may be jamming that wheels output shaft.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.
