    it sounds as if your suspension is on the way out, depending on what type the car has it could be as simple as the rubber sheath has torn and flaps when your front end goes down. you can easily check this by turning the wheels to full lock and looking up the inside of the wheel arch. If it is the kind that has black rubbers coverings run your hand around the end and check for rips and tears. barring this i would recopmmend you take it a to a garage as the last thing you want is the springs/ rods impactings when you're doing 50

Well I think the best thing to do is to replace the windows control module, the one in the drivers door, but before that make sure is getting power and ground if not you found the problem.

To check for bearing failure remove the plug lead from the suspect cylinder and run the motor. If it is a bearing if will be noticeable less without the stress of firing. It could be a cracked flexi plate that drives the tranny in front of the torque converter. Remove cover plate and visually check for cracks in plate

First check wheel bearing. Jack front end up lifting tires off ground and see if the wheel moves by pulling on the sidewall part of wheel from top and pushing bottom towards the car does this back and forth if there is play, wheel bearing could need replaced. Take tire off and check for loose brakes, loose calipers, loose dust shields , etc. everything except rotor should be tight.

There is a knocking sound from engine(left side) when driving. It starts when you make a sharp turn.


If you have a front wheel or all wheel drive vehicle I would guess it's a CV joint (front axle), not the engine.
