It sounds as though something is loose, probably in the front end. Check, or have a shop check the front end components or for any loose body parts that could be causing the nose. I hope this helps.

Banging noise when you drive


This is a hard problem to describe, I know, and I will toss out a few possibilities. If the noise occurs when the car is accelerating, it can be motor mounts, or carriage mounts on front-wheel drive vehicles. Transmissions can bang into gear. Drive shaft u-joints can bang before they fail. C-V joints in front wheel or 4 wheel drive units can bang when worn out.

The exhaust system can break loose and bang on the frame. Brake calipers can rock in their mounts and transmit sound. Tie-rod ends can make a knocking noise on every bump you hit. There were recalls on gas tank straps for some Ford made units, so a loose gas tank can bang.

have your front-end checked, could be bad strut, shock-absorber, worn bushing @ control-arm, not good, unsafe, this could cause that bumping noise you hear, seek repair ASAP. avoid pot holes ! good luck

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me


I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

I have a 1990 canry and have a squek in the


hi, the most likely cause of the noise is going to be the bottom ball joint or the anti roll bar bushes if you only get the noise when going over pot holes or bumps then the chances are its the bottom ball joint but if the noise is their whilst on even road or slight bumps then this would point towards roll bar bushes, getting them replaced will stop the falling apart and giving you a banging noise

Loud popping noise when turning or hit bump/ pot hole


look at the rubber grommets and end rubber on the stabilizer bar .. also check the top of the strut tower (under hood). they sometimes rust out allowing some free motion and eventually complete failure .. look for even slight motion there when the car is rocked ..

Hi, I have opel corsa 1.4. Recently i faced a problem that if if there is at least three person (including driver) then during running a tortling noise comming from the right side of the back whenevr it...


the best way to find out what it is would be to have the 3 people in the car while gently pushing down on the car simulating a pot hole or bump and inspecting how the exhaust & shocks in that area where you hear the noise, are fitting. It sounds as if when the weight of the extra passengers is in the vehicle, probably your exhaust pipe/muffler/tailpipe is now closer than usual to another body part & when you hit bumps or pot holes, the extra force caused makes it bump or rub.

Generaly there should always be 1" of exhaust clearance from other parts. There could also be a problem with the shock/strut when the extra weight is placed on it. The noise should actually point you in the best direction & you should look for shiny spots on metal, pipes or things that appear to be capable of rubbing. Sometimes, the muffler /exhaust will lose one or more of the rubber O-rings it is supported by and that allows it to swing & bump making noise. Good luck.

Rear suspension left side makes a knocking sound while driving


There are a few suspension parts that can cause knocking noises. Such as swar bar loose, strut mounts going bad. You should really have a shop do a complete suspension check.
