Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Jeanette, I'm glad to help!
Jeanette, usually when your turning a vehicle and it makes a clunking noise, it could be 2 things. (1) The CV Joints are bad. What is a CV Joint? If you look under the vehicle you will see a long axle coming from the transmission to the center of you wheel and on each end of that axle you'll see a rubber boot. Jeanette, behind that boot is the CV Joint and when you turn the vehicle it pivots with the wheel. When it goes bad it will make all kinds of noises and can be unsafe if it breaks while on the highway because your vehicle will stop moving. PLEASE GET THAT CHECKED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. (2) The other problem it could be is your wheel bearings, when they become loose enough they can actually bind and cause a popping or clunking noise. This can also be unsafe if they are extremely loose. PLEASE GET THAT CHECKED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Jeanette.

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.

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 .

Go to the local parts store, have them check the codes (they will do this for free usually). It will tell you what sensor needs to be checked/replaced. Once the part is replaced, it will clear on its own. They can also reset the code, but it will come back if the trouble persists.
