SOURCE: "tumbling noise" when braking, bumpy roads, or turning right.

If you just replaced the strut on the other side thats where i would be checking first, did it make the noise before you chg. it? If not, maybe something came loose. The only sure way to know if its an axel is to get under it and see if there is any play or loosness in the cv-joints of the axel.

There are many possible solutions to your problem. Is it due for a tune up (spark plugs, fuel and air filters, PCV, etc). If the car has been maintained and this is a sudden problem I would look first at spark. Reason? Because it stalls going into gear.You can smell fuel so it's less likely the problem, It just isn't getting burned properly.
If you can, start it in poor light conditions with the hood open and look for sparks jumping off the ignition wires. If you do, replace them.
Another common problem is a slipped timing belt, one tooth off and those engines ran poorly, something like you are experiencing now. Another common problem was a bad EGR valve. If it sticks open at idle it allows exhaust gas back in when it shouldn't be.
Need more help after checking that let me know.

Your friend is right.Those are two things that should be checked. If your tires are in good shape,you might also try rotating them.

I agree with the axle CV joint choice.
Could also be a brake or wheel bearing failure, but the CV joint is the most likely given the symptoms.

Clicking noise down by the front tires.


check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

Loud banging noise when i go over a bump on passenger side front and a clicking when i pull into a parking spot or three point turn both left and right took it to dealership say they cant find anything


The clicking is the halfshafts or front wheel drive axles. I have a hard time believing that they have went bad already but anything is possible. The banging noise is something in the suspension, perhaps struts or a sway bar link.

When driving the car shakes violently...when turn


It could be tires need balanced, but more likely it's one of your cv joints. That is basically a "drive shaft" on front wheel drive vehicles.

I heard a loud pop, then the vehicle wont move in any gear.It then grinds when I try to put it in park.


It sounds like you broke a Constant Velocity joint (CV Joint). The pop was probably the joint breaking. When you put it in gear it's just spinning. Think of one of your hands as the transmission. Hold a pencil that would be the CV Joint(s) and axle, and use the other hand to hold the other end of the pencil. That's the front hub (part that makes the wheel turn). So you have ...hand, pencil...hand = trans, axle... wheel. If you hold the pencil firmly with both hands, and spin the pencil with one, both hands still move.

If the pencil breaks...the one not spinning does nothing.

So...The transmission is trying to make the van go, but the cv joint is broken, so the wheels aren't spinning. When you put the van in park, the transmission doesn't know the vans not moving. Therefore it's making the same noise as if you put the van in park while driving. If you must start the van and put it in gear to see if the driver's or passenger's axle is just spinning. Shut the van off, wait a minute for the axle shaft to stop spinning, and then put it in park.

Front end and steering wheel shakes


when slowing to make right turn is it more like a clicking noise, does it do it while turning or just when slowing down. If it is while you are turning it is most likely the right cv axle drive shaft popping. When at a stop with ac on does it shake if you put it in park and how do the rpms read in park or in drive. Did they change the trans mount also dont thank that is it just trying to get a better understanding so I can better assist you.
