Ok there is a clunking or popping sound in the front of my 2004 Honda Odyssey when turning an hitting bumps what could it be

this could be a few things :
1- a broken motor mount , with transverse mounted engines it's a real possibility that one or more engine/trans mounts have come loose , this should not be taken lightly as if left go it can damage the engine/trans housings requiring replacement $$$$
2- a constant velocity joint ,again in transverse mounted engines it's common for the flex joint from trans to wheels to have issues , this can become serious as eventually the wheels will disconnect from trans and wheel can lock up tight regardless of speed your traveling
3- last but not least - just something loose or flopping around , there are many shields and covers in this area that are only fastened with special clips and these can work loose , this also needs to be looked at because those covers are there for a reason and will allow dirt to enter into spaces and cause more $ problems

all in all an experienced tech should look at this they have the tools and knowledge to know if it's something serious or not

Clunking noise coming from front wheel area?

Hi there, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in Missouri

I look forward to helping you with your problem.

Anytime you have clunking in a wheel area it can be several things. (1) It could be a TIE ROD END and here's how to check it. Jack the wheel off the ground and grab it at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock and move it side to side if you feel something loose replace the outer tie rod. (2) Grab the wheel at 6 o'clock and 12 o'clock and move it back and forth if you feel something loose replace the BALL JOINTS. NOTE: It could also be a wheel bearing loose.

What is wrong with my car

That sounds very much like you broke off a tie rod end. Check to see if the front wheels agree with each other. Turn the steering far left, verify both front wheels are turned left. Turn the steering far right, verify both wheels are turned right. If the front wheels don't agree, DO NOT attempt to drive the car - have it towed somewhere or have someone repair the steering where it sits.

Knocking noise around the front passenger wheel area!?

Do you feel it in the steering wheel? if so it could be the intermediate steering shaft. If not it could be a sway bar link or bushing.

I have a 2002 Toy Camry and today while driving I went to make a left turn. I heard a deep "thud" sound that came the front right-side wheel area and a strange grinding noise that followed also...

check for failed wheel bearings or loose wheel on studs. Check suspension ball joints and steering joints the problem is serious so have the front inspected by a competent mechanic

VOLVO s90 1997 clicking noise from wheel area

If it happens only on turns then its the outer axle cv joint.. If it happens all the time probably something stuck in a tire. Either way have the suspension visually inspected by a technician as soon as possible.

Front end noise

Hi Wild Bear

No 1....... Check your wheel nuts ! !!!!!!

If OK.....

Is the problem worse on full lock, one way ?

If so, it sounds like the drive shaft CV joint is shot.

If no....

Jack up the front, support car on axle stands.

Spin your front wheels, check the treads, and I should think, you will be able to tell the problem wheel.

Expect it might be in the brake caliper area, something loose and fouling the wheel or rim ?

Check for play too, in your front wheel bearings, by gripping the tyre, top and bottom and pulling, there should be no movement.

Give these things a try, and get back to me.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice thank´s
