I have a 99 jetta 2.0 standard. I have a noise but don't know where it is coming from it sounds like I have a flat tire but don't it only does it when you take your foot of the gas or start to slow down...


How many miles on the Jetta? Sounds like this can indicate a wheel bearing worn out...front brakes beginning to wear, any grinding sounds? Actually, a tire with a separated belt can also make thumping sounds while driving...Try for a free diagnosis at a small shop.

Thumping, grinding noise comes from right front side


most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub

Noise in left front wheel


Grinding noise, growling noise, thumping noise? Something else? If it's a grinding noise, more than likely it is during stops. In this case it is probably metal on metal in the brake pads. If it is a growling it can be in the wheel bearing or CV shaft which usually gets louder with turning or banking. Is it is a thumping can be from a tire issue, a strut, a sway bar link banging around etc. Need to clarify the noise and how you are hearing it.

What is the cause of continual thumping (appears to be coming from back of car) and violently shaking?


Many times, rear tires that are out of round or severely cupped or feathered, or that are out of balance can create this type of issue. My first recommendation would be to have them and the wheels on the rear of the car inspected. There may not seem like there is much wrong visibly if you look at just the tread of the tires, but a good tire tech can spin them up and give you some solutions, and the inspection itself is inexpensive. Hope this helps.

Steering wheel shimmys at speeds 35 and up just changed rotors and pads no play in new wheel bearings doesnt shimmy when i brake though. any help would help greatly thanks


If it shimmies with the brakes applied, it's a rotor problem....but like you say, it shimmies just at a certain speed with no brakes applied, check tires for out-of-roundness. If they look ok, you are looking at a balance problem with the tires.

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.

I have a thumping sound on my 2003 ford focus. So far the steering and brakes do not seem to be bothered by it. When I increase or decrease so does the sound. It stops when I do. All of the tires recently...


Have you considered that the belts in a tire may have slipped or needs to be balanced? Swap each tire with your spare. tire until you find the problem.

Steering wheel vibrates thumping noise


At what speed do you feel the shake and does it only happen when you apply the brakes?

Thumping noise when braking - 2001 Sienna


Could be a number of things that you cannot "see".

First, make sure the tire pressures are within the van manufacturers specifications. The tire pressure label will be on the driver side door pillar on a little sticker. Also confirm that the tires haven't been replace with an overly greater / lesser size.

Broken radial belts inside the tires are another cause - and is also dangerous if the tire heats up enough - it's a blowout waiting to happen.

Check for ANY unusual "ripples" on the inner and outer sides of the tires, and for any unusual wear patterns.

Putting the tires on a balancer will NOT show these tire problems.

You could try narrowing the problem down to a particular tire, and putting the spare on and see if the problem goes away.

Also, I have seen "off brand" or "blem" tires do this a lot.
