SOURCE: driver's side wheel knocking during a slow sharp turn

I had a simular problem, it turned out to be a CV axle. Check all the inner and outer boots for breakage. It also may be the front differential. Most subaru owners or garages (except a dealer) don't know about the dipstick to check the gear oil in the front differential of an automatic and they end up going dry(diff on a manuel tranie is lubed with the same gear oil as the tranie and usualy dont have this problem). The automatic transmission fluid dipstick is on the driverside near the break cylinder and the gear oil dipstick is on the passenger side of the tranie just above where the CV axle attaches to the tranie(its the same yellow as the oil cap and has a finger loop. If the fluid has not been checked in a long time the stick may be stuck in the tube. If the stick is not reading when you pull it out you will want to drain the old diff fluid to remove any metal shavings produced from running the diff dry and refill with 80w90 gear oil. Good luck, hope it helps.

You need to check the cv joints in the front end or the u joints in the front drive shaft.If none of the above then the problem is internal in the front diff.

SOURCE: My 2001 Toyota Corolla has a knocking sound to the

It depends what they did when the brakes were serviced but sometimes the new brake pads don't seat well unless the brake rotors are finished properly. I suspect you'll need to return to the shop and ask them to re-finish the rotors and make sure the brake pad hardware is installed correctly. If the shop you went to has been in business for awhile, they should do this gladly for free since they have already been paid for the job. The only exception I would ad, is if they recommended something to you, such as new rotors, and you declined because of cost or otherwise.

Hope this helps,

My 2012 Ford F150 has a loud knocking at the front driver's side? Took it to Canadian Tire twice and they could not find the problem......

depending on when knocking is heard could be all sorts of dangerous things. If while turning, could be control arm bushing failing, would not change much with speed, but would with poorer road conditions. (danger wheel doesn't follow steering, crash)

If follows speed of wheels, could be a bad bearing in the wheel... (danger, one wheel stops spinning, crash) If bearing, change in pairs on the axles (so both front at same time) as if one goes, the other is as old...

Both of these "could" be missed depending on severity if on a lift, as the wheels would not be under load...

have mechanic go for a drive with you, so you can demonstrate the problem. If they won't, go to another mechanic.

Also loud knocking... could be engine... if follows RPM of engine, aka you can make the knocking while vehicle is still. (danger - engine siezes, crash)

Loud knocking could be a shock (strut) mount having broken, or shock spring...

you need to give more detail as to when sound occurs and in what circumstances. I've given you some things to try... good luck!

My 01 has a bad knocking noise what does this mean?

it means that you need to research either a different car, or a different engine for this car. A loud knocking noise indicates a connecting rod is loose, and your engine has little to no time left before the rod or endcap breaks, completely messing up your engine, and making it very difficult to change. If you must drive it, drive it slow, and be super gentle with the you're driving on ice. If it's more of a ticking noise, that could be a lifter, but a loud hollow sounding knock is a rod. You may also have a check engine light showing up on the dash from the knock sensor.

There may be a few things you can do, to fix the knock before it gets worse.
The worst case is
If the knock is a deep sound and is loud, that indicates the rod bearings are worn out, and pretty soon the bearings will fail, and most likely the car will leave you stranded.
