Question about 1998 Ford Escort

1 Answer

I own a 1998, R-reg Ford Escort. Whenever I go over a speed bumps etc, there is a terrible rattling sound coming from the driver side. I think it maybe suspension related but all seems normal under there. Any ideas? Thanks. Mark

Just a shot in the dark, but maybe your heat shield above the catalytic converter? Its about that time based on the year.

1998 fORD ESCORT WITH A CLUNKING IN THE LF OVER BUMPS


Most definately some bushing. Just check all of them, make sure all the bolts are tight. Jack the car up and get underneath it and start wiggling the suspension. Grab the wheel and shake it. Try to find the corner or side of the vehicle that the sound comes from.

its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.
