I thought you better check front rubber mounts & balance bar bushes.

SOURCE: 2006 saturn ion front end noise...wheel bearings?

Yes you can do this; the bearings are sealed unit hubs; very easy the cost is only about $70 each at an auto parts store. once you look at them you'll know how to do this.

SOURCE: creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer

I had the same problem. It would squeak kinda bad when I pull in my driveway. My cv boots were good. I found the ball joints were getting wore out, as well as the shocks were over 10 yrs old. I replaced the ball joints and shocks. I know my squeaks stopped, I personally believe it was the shocks that fixed my squeaking.

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Tiburon making a weird noise

Hello mpolci...The 2003 Tiburon was sold to the public with a defective clutch, it failed due to warpage and bad pressure plate... among other things. There are MANY class action lawsuits. Did you resurface or replace the flywheel when the clutch was replaced? Did you go with an aftermarket clutch kit, or factory? Also the slave cylinder on the 03 was known to have a defective valve.
You can try checking the levels and bleeding the system and if you still have problems, then it could be a release bearing, a loose clutch pad, or a broken pressure plate spring....If the clutch is still under warranty, i would return it to the installer.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

Creaking 2001 isuzu rodeo


our first creaking ever.
love that.( its haunted? LOL)


nobody can fix a car, if you can't demo it
not heard, can't fix it if it is not broken, rings true here.
when you do that, they are forced to guess, at your expense.
its an Implied GUE$$

first off you need to find out when it happens. exactly
first. (bounce car hard parked)?
only turning, only at bumps, when?
only moving, I guess
it can creak and be AOK,
for example the front stabilizer bar is mounted in rubber mounts
and will creak. and be ok. (so spray them)

why not buy a can of SILICON spray ,and spray
all things under car that moves,
all things, not the drive shafts.
there are swing arms, Arms, and many things to make noises in the the whole suspension systems.
it could be tie rods failing (bad that)spray them.
if have weeks to find it spray 1 at a time>? tedious.
any suspension shop in town knows what to do.
find one.
a real shop can use his electronic 4 channel stethoscope
and drive it and find it. but must FAIL for HIM.

see?

Where are the insert points for front end greasing? hubby has greased it but it is still creaking a squeking pretty bad. he missed some maybe?


creaking usually comes from struts or from bushings on the A-arms. Get struts replaced recently? Could be the isolators (rubber between spring purch and springs) deteriorated. These are usually the prob if it creaks when you turn the wheel. If it creaks when your push on the car up and down - its a bushing. These dry up and crack and/or creak when old.

My v 4motion creaks whenever it go over anything.


Definitely get the anti roll bar bushes seen to, its such a front heavy car. The sleeves are plastic and crack away, leaving metal on metal. Also the wishbone bushes dry out and will need replacing(most likely source of the creaking). Probably a 2-3 hour job for a decent mechanic, plus parts, you would have to get a price as it is so variable, but I remember buying anti roll bar bushes and drop links from a dealer for less than £50 all in.

Front end popping when stopping at slow speeds


Check the cv joints behind each front tire. See if they are torn. Really inspect then. I there is a little crack the dirt can ruin them. Check your brakes and make sure they are not worn down to the indicator.

Chipped


My engine light has come on also, I think the mechanic finally took out the bulb to cure my problem. But it has been driven hard, however look into your manifold intake gasket for problems; just a guess from my experience in a total engine overhaul due to oil pump going out with a teenager driving it till block cracked......Brother.
