It may be the Power transmission some where down the line, so you've got to isolate the fault by jacking up the front wheels one at a time, cutting the steering left n then right while running it in low gear will give you the answer to the grinding sound. If not , then it could be one of the gearbox bearings.

    Forgive my stupid question but does any of that have anything to do with the driveshaft or is it something totally unrelated..part n service wise i mean. And let's assume its one if the two things u suggested could u estimate a difficulty/price range? Thanks for ur time and input!! RHIANNON

SOURCE: mazda 3 2004 front end struts shot

front end problems are not very uncommon becuse of the way we drive and where we drive, the front struts take quite a beating on the road thus giving us all the smooth comfortable painless noise less ride !!.

today the actual labor rate is soring and that is the reason for your big bills yet a reasonable price i would pay would be around $90 per side and the part will be around 200 for both front struts thus for a total of $400 for the front look into deals given by most auto speciality shops such as goodyear or pep boys but always ask for them to return your old parts to you this will be a good price around $400 - 450. for the front.

the noise you hear while you turn either to left or to the right while you are driving is bad front wheel bearings see if these are servicable bearings and if they are they can be cleaned and repacked with grease if they are sealed bearings then the bearings have to be replaced.

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?

on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

I had the same problem with a Saturn I had and I would check the motor mount. If its coming loose it can damage a lot of other things costing more than what you would need.

2004 Dodge Neon with overdrive auromatic transmission, gear posselector is in park but transmission still in gear?


ok first check cable to transmission to make sure it is properly adjusted, Does it lock into park ? (ie does the parking cog engage and hold the car from moving) If the park cog does engage the I suggest rebuilding the transmission as the band inside the transmission may be worn and welded to the drum.

2004 Dodge Neon will not reverse.


Sounds like it could be worn gear linkages, which would stop you from being able to push the gearstick in to the reverse gate (usually by pushing the gear stick down or pulling a lever up under it). If you can get under the car take a look, there should be a set of joined poles leading out from where your gear lever is, check that all the connections on these are reasonably tight.

Sunroof stuck


First off, you should leave it closed. At least you can drive it that way. The grinding could be the motor itself, or a gear inside that has rounded or broken teeth. Another possibility is that it has slipped out of a channel or track. Unless you're pretty handy this sounds like a professional repair job.
