Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Knocking noise under the steering column

I have a 2.4 liter engine, just replaced the front strut's had the noise before that but after replacing the strut's didn't here it anymore, now it's back. It only does it in town and mainly when I hit bumps I am not positive it's under the steering column but I can feel it on the steering wheel when it clanks. Does anyone know what can be causing this? I was thinking maybe the shock absorber's but not sure.

It could be the struts, upper strut mounts or a broken spring on one of the struts

Shutter noise after having front struts replaced


I think I would be looking at incorrect wheel bearing adjustment or brake calipher mount loose. There would have been no reason to touch the steering other than to undo the ball joints to allow strut removal

I have a bumping or knocking noise underneath my 1999 Cadillac Eldorado, I hear it especially on bumpy roads,it sounds like it's in the front of the car, what is it?


If the steering and suspension parts are OK, could be a lot of things such as loose parts around the engine (e.g. battery tie-down, bumper cover, etc.).
Unfortunately, if a shift solenoid is an issue, the shop is correct and just the start of problems with the transmission. These transmissions are pretty rugged, but they have to be serviced every 80K miles or so or this will happen.

2006 hhr rattling in front end


When you changed out the struts, did you also replace the Strut Bearing Mounts that mount the struts to the strut towers on the car? These things are notorious for making the rattling sound.

Knocking in front end had linkages replaced but the knocking is still there


replace the front struts AND the turn plates above them, they call those the "strut kits". it houses a bearing plate that turn with the steering wheel.... if the struts are too expensive to replace right now, just have the strut KITS replaced. Very common with 80K+ front wheel drive cars and almost always an area most people look over. good luck

Noise when turning either direction


When you changed the struts,did you put in complete assemblies with new springs and top bearings?It is usually the top bearings that make noise when turning.Next is worn outer CV joints on the axles.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.
