SOURCE: do struts have to me replaced when fluid is leaking?

no you do not! this is a congame! unless your struts do not return to full ride height in one two two bounces when you push on the front of your hood you do not need to replace them. they wear out just like shocks

SOURCE: rattle noise coming from front driver side wheel

It could be several things.

1. Strut is worn and the rod is rattling.
2. The ball joint or control arm are worn. A new control arm comes with the ball joint and a new bushing.
3. The inner and/or tie rod end is worn, allowing the wheel to rattle.

Raise the car and support it. Twist the wheel back and forth while observing the tie rod. Look for play in the inner and outer connections. If this is ok, place a pry bar under the tire and lift up while observing the ball joint and control arm. You should not see any play. Look at the strut. Look for oil on the housing. Look for play in the rod or a loose connection.

Hello. Welcome to FIxYa.

Your noise is most likely worn out 'rear strut support mounts'.

On top of the rear struts, there is a metal plate that locates the top of the strut to the body, Inside this plate is a centering device that holds the top of the strut vertically secure. As the mount wears, the strut is no longer vertically secure, and allow the tip if the strut to hit the inside edge of the metal plate.

We change these parts quite often, this is a very common occurance, and is easily rectified.

What you will need to do: Have a qualified technican remove the rear strut assemblies, disassemble them, and replace the top support mounts.

We do not recommend that you try this yourself, if you do not have the required experience, and the necessary tool (a strut coil-spring compresser). If you try to remove the coil spring from the strut assembly without the proper tools, you could very well injure yourself. The coil spring is under a significent amount of tension.

This is a job best left to a professional machanic who has the proper tools.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

I suspect that the insulator that seals the selector lever to the floor and the lever inside the car is allowing engine heat ,road heat to enter the cab past the gear lever. IT is common problem if the insulator rots or is not replaced after gear box removal say for clutch replacement.

Its a rattle sound on passenger side mostly when go over a bump


The most common thing on commodores when going over bumps or over pot hole in the road is rattle or knock from front.
you will more than likely need new sway bar link pins and bushes..

Knocking sound under floor board while driving


Hi,
Check your tires for uneven wear. Sounds like they are out of balance and causing the shock or other suspension part to bounce/bump the under side of the car.

Truck making knocking noise in front end driver's side


Sound like metal clanking when going over semi rough road or bumps? Time to check your swaybar end links. Recommend using Moog end links as they are greasable. End links run from $20 ea to $70 each depending on brand. Moogs run about $37each. I would check front and back sway bar end links. Grab a hold of it and try jiggling it around, shouldn't be loose.

Sounds like broken spring, or collapsed suspension strut, or collapsed wheel baring, or broken upper or lower control arm or extremely worn bushes, or all the above. what is it your driving? what sort of bumps? speed bumps? or 4x4ing bumps? or just general bumps in the road?

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Avalon knocking


Hi, airjeff8

In a nutshell, you need to get the valve cover off and see whats going on under there. It could be a broken camshaft or a valve/spring issue amongst other things.

Whip the cover off and have a look.
