Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

Clicking while turning

When I turn to the right in my Pontiac Grand Prix, 1999, it makes a clicking noise, it gets louder the fast you are moving. It is getting worse and can hear it even when driving straight. I have had the hubs, axles, tie rods, ball joints, all changed out, the things that hold on brake pads changed, and brake pads changed and nothing seems to make it better. Please help as I am going broke trying to fix my car!

    My mechanic has been doing it, I have taken it to 3 different shops actually. One of them being a transmission shop. I have had the wheel bearings changed a few times, and now I will check if my cv's joints have been done because I kinda lost track. Thank you so much for your help!

Have you been the one doing the work if not fire your mechanic. It sounds to me like a wheel bearing.
to check jack up the front wheels , leave the tires on, then grab teh tire move the wheel up/down then left/right then in/out if it moves in any of these directions you got a problem in and out is the bearing, left to right a steering componant, up down ball joint general slop is either a CV joint or the wheel bearing again.
If that is all good on both sides then is may be teh trransmission has an issue get it to a shop for a look. hope this helps

You didn't mention changing the constant velocity joints (CVs) if you didn't that is your problem they break all the time and make a loud clicking noise when they do

Why does my 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix make a clicking sound when braking right after the brakes were changed?

My first guess would be one of the brake pads or the caliper is moving. You should be able to jack up one wheel at a time and find out where the noise is coming from.

Defective fan clutch, if it has one. With a cold engine only, try spinning the fan blade by hand. If it does not turn freely, the fan clutch is defective. Warning: When the engine is hot, the fan can turn on by itself with the car not running and keys are NOT in the ignition.

Clicking noise from transmission when taking right turn or sitting with driver side down hill

Gear type noise when driving.noise changes with speed of car.stops when car is not moving.2000 pontiac gran prix

Hi, if this noise changes when turning left or right, (gets louder or quieter), there is a good chance a front hub is bad. For instance, if you turn right, and the noise gets louder,the left hub is bad, and vice versa for the other side. You can normally jack it up, spin the wheel and hear the noise, or wiggle the wheel, and see if it has play. Good luck...

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) when I turn my wheel, rather left or right I hear a moaning. Noise and its very annoying, help me!

Check the power steering fluid, have a helper turn the wheel and look under the hood and see if the power steering pump is making noise, check the P/S belt to make sure it's tight.

I have a 2001 pontiac grand prix gt and it makes a squealing noise, and when i accelerate it gets louder and more whiny. I have replaced the belt and it still makes the noise. If the car is started and not...

It sounds like a belt thats slipping. You have a sticking puley somewhere, take off the belt and rotate all of the pulleys. Usually its an AC compressor pulley so pay special attention to it. The whining noise that it makes while turning, is it the same as the squealing noise? If so it could be a problem with the pump, check the fluid level and see if its an odd color or has an odd odor (like burnt or black). Hope this helps!

Clicking noise when driving and turning to the right

It is possible the engine cradle bushings are shot and the cradle is moving laterally or twisting during turns causing something like a wheel to contact the body. An alignment shop can check that for you.

Would noise be wheel bearing

Yes it could be but to be sure, i would jack the car up and pull and push on the tire and see if it moves at all.

Clicking under the front end

Clicking noises on turns indicate excess clearance in the Constant Velocity ("CV") joints. They can make noise when worn. Replace the drive axles.
