Funny..but it means somewhere the drive system is loose (old age) and only tightens up when it get hot and expands. Could be gear box, transmission...
It is big, metal and clanking ? Sounds expensive
I hear a trade in coming

Awful rattling noise when reversing and turning


you are right about the bearing going to bits, it is called a CV joint. it allows the driveshafts to the front wheels to flex as you turn left or right and one is coming apart if one is going bad the other side will too soon, get them both replaced. If you don't, when it breaks completely it will cause MUCH more damage

"I hear and feel "Clucking noises when I drive me


If it is clucking then someone has hidden some chickens in your trunk, open it and let them out. If it is clunking then I would suspect rubber bushings on any of the several suspension components have reached the end of their life and metal is banging into metal as the suspension moves up and down.
You need to take it to an alignment shop and have them give you a list of what is worn out. Consider replacing those parts and getting it aligned. If the clunking is reserved only to times when you shift from D to R and back, then I would suspect U joints and CV joints in the axles. If it is reserved to times when you are turning, check the CV joints and wheel bearings. Everything on the car is 14 years old and each part will eventually fail from use and age.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.

Have your rear brakes checked. It might be a brake wear indicator. Or your rear brakes are stuck on the brake drum.

Clunking noise


The unit in the back has its own heater core. That's what i thought the clunking was.It has to clunck to go into heating mode.It shuts off the airconditioner The clunk noise just gets louder with age because the strip around the door wears off. The unit in the front has it's heater core is underneath the glove box real hard to get to. In other word's it has two heater cores. That's why i suggested just reversing the hoses and just flushing till you could afford heater core replacement.
