Question about Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Driving as usual at 55mph, heard a loud bang, tires locked up for a split second, it kept moving until pulled off road to see hat it was. Checked all tires and front of car for something hit, and nothing out of ordinary. Got back in to drive it off the hwy, and it would not go into gear, or reverse. Engine still turns over, but it wont go anywhere.

SOURCE: 1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.

SOURCE: Front brakes replaced and then heard a loud bang

it sounds like one of the mounting bolts-pins came loose or was not fully tightened.
the grinding noise could have been on the wheel or rotor depending on what came loose. probably the bang means its missing altogether now, DANGEROUS! do not drive.
have a tow truck bring it back and be there to look when they inspect it....

SOURCE: 1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

SOURCE: Loud metal bang when turned tires to right

hi from the uk this bang you heard is most likely to be the coil suspension spring on the nearside most likely the top coil has broken this is not uncommon fault however slightly expensive but not beyond d i y if you want to save money it would be worth checking both sides and if you shop around you can obtain springs at reasonable price have done one recently on focus cost £56 here in uk time to diy if you have haynes manual it will give detailed instructions on renewal you will need to borrow spring compressors hope this helps keep in touch if you req further info/assistance good luck

Smoke coming back passenger side tire smoking and made loud bang sound

My guess is the brake is being applied by the ABS system due to a leaking hydraulic valve in the hydraulic control section of the ABS module.

Driving along and made a turn heard a loud noise and car would not move and once off the road i put in park and tires kept rolling. I recently had a rebuilt transmission installed

then it was either installed wrong and you just lost your driveshaft or it was rebuilt incorrectly/with faulty parts and has failed, either way take it back and get them to fix it under warranty. only other thing would be the differential but since no one messed around with that recently im gonna put my money on tranny/driveshaft

Loud metal bang when turned tires to right

You may have to remove the tires but they are very well known for braking the front coil springs.

I have front end vibration that is not caused by alignment. New tires on all four wheels but still have alot of front end vibration. Car is a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon.

just checked this out a while ago:

Wheel Hub Assemblies: Systems and Diagnosis of Worn Hub Assemblies & Bearings
Front wheel hub assemblies and bearings control the position of, and reduce the resistance of, vehicle wheels in contact with the pavement. When they fail, front wheels may not be kept in position and vibration and noise usually develop. Symptoms that normally develop as a result of these worn parts include:
  • A humming, rumbling or growling noise which increases with acceleration or as the vehicles turns
  • Vibration felt in the steering wheel, which changes with vehicle speed or as the vehicle turns
  • Looseness or excessive play in the steering wheel (especially while driving over rough road surfaces)
  • A loud, constant grinding noise when driving the vehicle (heard in the most severe cases of a wheel bearing failure)
  • Pulling to one side when braking.
  • Roughness - with the vehicle of the ground, roughness or vibration when rotating the wheel
  • Looseness - with the vehicle off the ground, looseness when wiggling the wheel back and forth (Looseness may also indicate a worn ball joint)
  • Excessive brake pedal play can also indicate sloppy or excessively loose wheel bearings
  • ABS failure in the system may be related to failure of the ABS sensor in the hub assembly or the internal sensor in the wheel bearing
