Immediately following he pop the noise from the car is really loud and sounds like the muffler is gone. I don't know slot about cars but the muffler is still there. Any wisdom?

SOURCE: Terrible Front End noise

I would agree with the hub bearing solution. I also have a 2001 Cavalier and recently replaced both hub bearings. The sound is quite loud and does get worse the faster you drive. Once I got mine replaced, I couldn't believe how quiet my car ran. My dad works with a guy who does a lot of work on Cavalier's and has noticed that first the left hub bearing goes bad, soon followed by the right after about 60,000 miles.

SOURCE: Rear acceleration noise

Try rear wheel bearings. The cause a roaring noise that increases with acceleration. Sounds very similar to loud road noise.

SOURCE: thumping noise in the front end

Rotate tires front to back and test drive if same thumping is felt then tires not the problem.
Next check out ball joints/ tie rods
Dont believe it is the rotors unless thumping happens only when applying brakes
Good luck

A loud 'cracking' or rumbling noise suggests that a wheel bearing needs replacing. On front wheel drive cars a worn driveshaft universal joint can cause the same noise

Exhaust leak in 2005 dodge neon seams to be in front how can i find it and fix it


Since you wired up the muffler most likely the break is around the muffler. Easiest way to find it is to put it in park, have a helper rev the engine to say 1500-2000rpm, then from under the car move your hand around different areas and you'll feel the exhaust coming out where the leak is. Just make sure you don't touch the exhaust or you'll get burned, just place your hand near the pipes not on them!

When I back out of driveway and turn rear of the car to the right a loud popping noise in the front right wheel area. Took it to a mechanic and they thought it was fixed. Charged me $287. to replace lower...


you don`t say if this is a 4x4 truck.if it is it could be the Ujoints/halfshaft joints on the side thats making the noise.another thing to have checked is the upper and lower control arm bushings for being worn out causing the noise.just suggestions.

We have had three Ford Excursions. All were 4x4,


Too many possibilities.
It could be anything from a ball joint to a muffler hanger.
I suggest you repeat the driveway experiment, with several people outside the car, on the sidelines.
Check for ripped ball joint boots.
Check rubber bushings. like A-arm attachment points.

Very very loud clunking noise from front end...


Before you look at that, check the front end. With the front wheels on the ground, wiggle them from side to side with some force and see if there is any freeplay. If there is it is probably one of the ball joints that has worn. This is quite dangerous and needs to be attended to immediately ut the cost of repairs in not high. Whilst you are checking the front end, make sure that all the mountings are tight. Anything loose can make some very interesting sounds. Another thing you can look at is the u/j on th propshaft. If you get under the car and grab the propshaft, and move it from side to side in the direction it would be going if the car was running and you can hear it clunking or there is any freeplay, that could be your problem, but the noise would be coming more from the middle of the car.
