SOURCE: Thumping sound when coasting in ford escape awd

I suspect there will be something loose in a CV joint, under load it will be held in place but when it is not under load it flaps around causing the thumping. You should be able to identify which side of the vehicle it is coming from then a mechanic should see it ASAP because if it lets go completely it will not only be dangerous and stop the vehicle from going anywhere it will be very expensive to fix the colateral damage.

SOURCE: squeak sound in the front right tire & a thump noise in the rear.

It sounds like you have a bad strut, have the strut replaced, if it does not fix the problem seek help from a suspention shop.

SOURCE: thumping sound

If it's also a "wub wub" sound, look into your tires. I had a flat spot in my front driver's side tire that made the "wub wub" sound. Couldn't hear it well if driving slowly, but as I would pick up speed, the "wub wub" would increase in frequency and volume.

SOURCE: I hear a thump from the right front sometimes when

Sounds to be a engine mount. Put the car in in 1st as you would take off. With the brake on. See if the engine is pulling up on that side. Also do these in reverse.Which ever side your engine moves, is most likely the broke engine mount. To replace this, I usually loosen the mount, jack the engine up just enough for the engine to raise to sit on, take the old mount out and install the new. tighten the bolts and release jack slowly. Go through and tighten the bolts again for tightness. The dealer states on a small car the time is 3-4 hours, but I had my old off and new on within 7 min. So it's an easy job.

I have a 2006 Montana that has a thumping sound in the front faster I go faster it thumps unless I turn right could that be a wheel bearing


Lift the right side tire up. Grab the top and bottom of the tire and wiggle it. Any movement, the bearing is bad. Even if it doesn't move replace it. When your turn right, it relieves the pressure off the right side . Most the pressure is put n the left side.

Grinding feeling in left wheel


This sounds like your CV joint is bad if it is a front wheel drive. The CV joint will click or thump when you are turning. It will also make your front wheels shake if it is realy bad.

Axel Change?


I had the same issue and had it fixed for free based on my warranty. I don't remember the name of the part, but it wasn't the axel. From what I was told, it was a common problem, but not common enough to issue a recall. I recommend talking to a few different Saturn retailers. Good luck.
