SOURCE: after driving and coming to

Make sure you check the fluid, and also, grab your rear drive shaft at the yoke where its connected to the transfer case, and try to move it up and down like you want to pull it out. If there is any play, your input shaft bearing may be bad.

If you wiggle your front shaft where it comes out of the case same scenario. Your output shaft bearing may be bad. If you have no play, be sure to check your universal joints, and also when the case starts to grind, play with the shifter a little bit. Could be linkages as well.

If none of that pans out, you have something broken in the case that is getting trapped in the gears. That is very unlikely unless there is no fluid in it.

Let me know. Thanks.

The car can possibly be "tracking" from the tires or possibly an alignment and while your at it check the IDLER arm. They are known to fail.

it might be a loose chain that drag on the bottom of the case.
have a shop to do this job if you dont have enough knowledge for changing chain of transfercase.

When I accelerate forward from a comp stop my car makes a loud grinding/screeching by the front driver side. Once running the noise stops but until it catches speed it makes the sound. What is that?


It could be several things, and I'm going to assume that the vehicle is front wheel drive.

First possibility is the constant velocity joint on the driver's side is worn out.

Second possibility is the wheel bearing on the driver's side.

As to the shaking at 70+mph, you may have an alignment problem, or some issues with the suspension components on that side of the car.

Does the noise get worse when accelerating from a stop, and turning, at the same time?

Loud ticking noise on driver side as speed hits 50mph gets louder as mph goes higher but noise gets quieter when mph goes down. If I do not reach 30-45 mph it will not tick, what is causing it


Noises are decieving. Cud be steering system or wheels or suspension. If ball joint fails car cud flip ovr.hav pro testdrive it. Seek a gudguy at surecritic.com

run the fault codes first to check for faulty sensors
what you describe indicates a problem in the exhaust in that when the exhaust gas volume reaches a certain level the sensors are reporting it and the ECM is not able to fix it
have an accredited exhaust shop check the cat converter
for failure and partially blocking the exhaust at speed
if it was a fuel pump you would run into problems long before the speed at which it occurs
AT best it could be an EVAP problem with the vent not working properly but I think that it is exhaust related

84 325e: when you 1st take off, there's a heavy loud knocking from underneath the car, in the area behind the passenger seat. Once you reach 20-30 mph, it stops. Thanks for your help..


It sounds like the driveshaft carrier bearing is bad, Once you reach speed the centrifical force of the driveshaft centers it and the noise goes away. Most noticable at take off.

I hear a knocking nosie in the front of the car and it stops when i reach about 50 miles per hour and will start again when i slow down or stop at a light or stop sign. the cv joint has been replaced on...


so the noise changes with vehicle speed and NOT engine speed?

did they also replaced the intermittent shaft and bearing

however, this cause more of a humming noise than knocking

therefore start looking at transmission concerns

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds


I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))
