Question about 2001 Toyota RAV4

1 Answer

Noise and vibration front wheel area.

We have a loud 'cluncking ' sound with a vibration when driving on any kind of uneven ground. It seems to be coming from the right front wheel area. We can not duplicate this sound when stationary. It is a 2001 Rav4 with 90000 miles.

My manuel trans. 2001 for focus has a rattle sound and vibrates a bit when starting. It seems to go away after it warms up a bit, but it is getting progressively worse and the vibration is lasting lon


I had a 1984 Mustang 4 cylinder that match the symptoms of your Ford Focus. I found that it was the core inside the catalytic converter had broke up and started to rattle. Not saying this is your problem but a possibility. Another possiblity, exhaust bumping the body of the car.
The wer wer wer sound you hear going over uneven ground is probably not related to the other mentioned. It sounds like the four wheel independent suspension adjusting to the terrain. Cool temperatures help promote this noise due to rubber bushing that your vehicle has in the suspension areas. Annoying, but considered normal. Hope this points you in the right direction and helps. Let me know what you found. Later, Todd

Vibrating Noise


Hi

Sounds like the problem is possibly on your front suspension, drivers side ?

You need to check your Shockers, Anti roll bar bushes etc, Front wheel bearing´s, and also the Tyre's for bulges, or uneven wear, and loss of balance weights.

I expect you should be able to see the problem, being it one of these !

Good Luck !

A fixYa rating would be appreciated please !!!

Front End Problems


first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.

Front End noise and vibration


Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.
