SOURCE: Clicking, sticking sound from front end, drivers side

It is your cv joint that is bad. If you jack the van up on that side, check to see if the boot is ripped...and more than likely your cv joint is about shot...even if the boot is intact.

The cv joint is bad....

SOURCE: rear wheel driver side is moving front and back,

If you have a broken component in the rear suspension, and you can see it, half the problem is solved! Get the identical part from a scrapyard and replace it. Most suspension parts are unbolt/put back in with no special instructions needed. If you need instructions get a haynes or chilton manual for your car (will help with many other items too).

SOURCE: roaring noise form front tire

How do you know the front tires aren't pulling? That's the first thing we need to know. 2nd does this roar happen when in 2wd? or just in 4wd? and is it 4wd part time? full time? or 4low? Does it do it all speeds? Mileage also would be helpful and when did this start?

Loud popping sound in front driver side while driving


Sounds like the sway bar might be broken. Turn the steering wheel so you can look into the inside of the fender behind the wheel. There is a large bar that connects both the front lower control arms together, sometimes this bar breaks and rubs the ends together causing a popping noise.

I'm hoping I can replace & take care of it myself on my '02 Monte Carlo 3400.. Not sure which bar it is, but it's front driver's side, bar is broken off that looks like it should be attached to th


Front sway bar link, or tir rod end. The tie rod end moves the tire with the steering wheel.
The sway bar link helps keep the car stable around corners. And is normally a long bolt with washers and bushings running threw a long bar that connects the passenger side to driver side.

Loud bang coming from front end when i turn the steering


If it happens when you turn while driving, it could be a broken sway bar link. Try to hear if it's coming from the pass. or driver side and check underneath next to the wheel (or just check both). Can be hard to spot sometimes but usually is hanging by one end with hardware missing. Cheap to replace, quick to fix.

2000 Ford Taurus driver's side front wheel has too much play side to side.


Worn ball joints, they need to be replaced also replace the ti-rod. You should replace both sides not just the drivers side. If you find too much play in the control arms and replace them you will need to have an wheel alignment done. If there is squeaking noise then the bushings should be changed. If you have not done any work on the front end in 10 years I would also change the wheel barrings if older then five years.

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Vibrate/shake at 55-70 mph


Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.

Stuck in 4 wheel high lock


I had the same problem just yesterday. My shifter lever for the 4x was just flopping around. I crawled under the driver side right behind the driver front tire and there was a lever hanging down with an "L" shape on the end of it and a groove cut all the way around it. That lever is the end of that shifter lever inside of your vehicle. it attaches to another lever "a flat bar with a hole drilled into it and mounted to the side of the transmission. Don't attempt to move the flat bar but do reposition the lever inside the vehicle so that you can put the "L" shaped lever back into the hole of the flat bar. There is supposed to be what they call an "E" ring on the end of this "L" shaped lever that slips over the shaft in that Groove I was telling about. it snaps into place and holds the two levers together. It's missing so go to auto parts store and get a new one. I'm headed there today. Shift your car into 2wd and drive. Then replace the "E" ring that's missing and you're good to go.

Good luck

How do i remove mitsi gto gearbox


Remove air intake hoses to throttle body, remove battery tray, remove washer bottle attached to battery tray, remove clutch slave cylinder and compensator from the top of the tranny. Remove tranny gearchange control cables and hang up to one side.
Jack car up as high as you can and remove the wheels. DRAIN the gearbox (24mm not on bottom side).
Now go under the car and remove the starter motor, remove the exhaust front pipe (can unbolt from front CATs and let hang down), remove frame member and remove the plastic covers from the passenger side wheel well to get to the frame member. Remove the lower control arm bolts on both sides and let the control arms hang down. Disconnects both sway bars at the wheel hubs to allow the drive shafts to be pulled outwards. ease the drive shaft on passenger side out with pry bar and have someone pull on the hub to pop the drive shaft out. On the drivers side, you have to first remove the intermediate bracket on the block and then do the same thing with the drive shaft to pull it out.
Support the tranny with a jack.Remove the four bolts holding the tranny support bracket (covered with four grommets in passenger wheel well). Remove the three bolts from the top of the tranny and remove the bracket.

Now work your way around the tranny and remove the bolts holding it to the engine (there is a 10mm phillips screw/bolt holding a dirt sheild in place under the rear of the tranny, the other bolts are more obvious).

Tranny is now ready to be lowered to the floor using the floor jack.

Installation is the reverse of the above. Good Luck.
