    I thought it was the motor, but the guy across the street listened and said he thinks the drive train or CV somethings?

  • brenda_49319 Mar 13, 2009

    More towards the front end he thinks

  • brenda_49319 Mar 13, 2009

    Is that something hard or costly to fix?

  • brenda_49319 Mar 13, 2009

    Thanks so much for the information - with any luck if its something like this or worst it'll be covered under my extended bumper to beumper since my husband has never done this type of thing before.

    Thanks again

OK, c/v joint sound reasonable. or, outside chance that there is a bad hub bearing allowing the trigger wheel on the axle to contact the sensor for the abs. I'd go for the first idea though (far more common.) Look underneath and see if a rubber boot on either of the axles is torn or split...dead giveaway that the joint has become contaminated with road dirt and is beginning to fail.

    Depending on how much work you have done in the past, not terribly difficult. You could likely figure it out as you go but a manual would make the job a bit easier. Don't have an exact price on joint but usually between $125 and $150 sometimes a bit more or less. I suggest you buy a complete rebuilt axle the price difference is worth the time saved. Make sure yours is bad though don't waste $ on replacing good parts.

1995 saturn sl2 ticking noise when accelerating

these are known for carbon build up on the valves that cause several problems.this could be the problem as the carbon can cause the valves to stick a bit in the valve guides while its running and show up as a ticking noise with the gas applied.have the top end service done which cleans the fuel system injectors and any carbon build up on the back of the valves.if this gets bad enough it can cause the cam holders to break locking up the motor if the piston hits the valve.another thing to check is oil pressure and the lifters may be worn to the point that they need replacing.check the cam lobes as well if worn these can cause a ticking noise on acceleration.

Ticking Noise at Startup

Possibly a leaking hydraulic lifter. They can leak down while engine isn't running and then make a ticking noise for a while on startup. If it takes 10-15 minutes to go away, it is more likely to be a loose tappet which needs adjusting.

When I start my car it shakes a little while in park then when I put my foot on the gas pedal it makes this loud noise. The faster I try to go the louder it gets. It sort of like a ticking noise.

Sounds like you have a misfire. May be a tune up only issue. Get it serviced and diagnosed. There most likely a code stored to direct the technician

There is a loud noise at 45mph.

Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

Loud ticking noise on startup

I would have you oil pressure checked. The oil pump or bearings could be going out. The lifter noise on this car usually will go away faster then 5 minutes. I think the noise is lasting a little to long.
