I'm thinking you have a cv (constant velocity) joint problem.. If so, you'll most likely need to take it to a shop. The cv joints are the joints in the drive axles coming out the side of your trans-axle and going to the front wheel. They are most likely enclosed with rubber boots. These often need changed or serviced on high-mileage vehicles.
Probably not, unless the tires were so bad that they tore up some of the suspension. Have your CV joints on the driveaxles checked. When a CV joint starts getting worn out, it will make a clicking sound during turns. Could that be what you hear? Heavy knocking could be from the suspension, but possibly a CV joint if very badly worn.
that sounds to me like you need a new cv joint turn the wheel all the way and lock it
in place and look at the rubber seal of the axle its on the in side of the wheel if the
rubber is riped or has holes in it it really needs replacementcheck both sides
some cv joints come with just the joint
others come with the hole axle
check the cv joints on both drive shafts. i had a dodge van that did the same, felt as though the front left tire was about to fall off, but turned out to be the cv joint at the tranny on the left shaft.
Check your outer cv joint boot and see if it is severely torn. It sounds like the cv joint is about to come apart, especially if you notice the noice being more pronounce when turning one way or another.
It is a front-wheel-drive car, right? It sounds like the CV joints are starting to go bad. CV joints connect the driveshafts of the engine to the front axles: they are basically very fancy versions of traditional 'U-joints' found on rear-drive cars. They are protected by a big rubber boot, which eventually gets ripped or whatever, then dirt gets in, which starts to grind away at the joint. It's probably $500 to replace the CV joints, maybe more on a Volvo. The good thing is, the sound will get much, MUCH worse before it actually falls apart and leaves you stranded. So you have some time before you HAVE to get it repaired.
It's probably your cv (constant velocity) joint. Jack up the honda and put it on safety stands, look at the area behind the center of both front wheels, there is a rubber boot. This boot protects the cv joint from dirt, road grime, water, salt, etc. If you see splits in it or grease on the boot, it has deteriorated, and is letting contaniments in. The damage has already been done if it makes a rattling noise going around corners at slow speed. I changed both cv joints (purchased rebuilt axles for $49 each) in my 92, but it is a big job labor wise. There's a lot to take apart to remove the axles.
Sounds like your outer CV joint on the drivers side is worn. If so not really a DIY job. When shaft is removed you will loose g/box oil. plus hub has to be partially removed. Then the joint removed from shaft. Big job. would recommend going to see your local CV shaft shop.
my solution to you is ask some one to check out your cvc joints cause once cvc joints go bad it starts to sound like your engines knocking but its the joints that are right next to the tire on the axel get under your car and look right behind the tire if there is a rubber here's a image of what the rubber on the axel should look like if its ripped or torn or even shredded thats your problem
