Sounds like constant velocity joints at the end of the drive shaft, the joints at the end of the drive shaft that allow the wheel to swivel, to turn. Only makes noise when turning left or right and is usually only from one side.
Hope this is of help. jccampbell@eircom.net

Bad sway bar


Could be CV Shaft or Hub Bearing as well. Jack up the front of the car, support with Jack Stands and check for play in wheels/hubs/bearings/linkage by grabbing wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock positions for tie rod ends and steering linkage, then 12 and 6 o'clock positions for bearings. You should barely be able to feel play. If you think it is more than acceptable climb under the car while someone else performs the tasks above. Turn wheels for excessive brake noise or out of tolerance discs. Out of tolerance discs will cause premature brake wear and cause pads to move around in the caliper sometimes before starting to grind. Finally, and what I think you're hearing/feeling is the CV Shaft. Grab shaft, move around feeling for excessive play in joint or splines on each end. Turn steering all the way lock to lock and turn wheels at each lock, forward and backward, feel/listen for clicking/popping. Most of the time you can quickly easily diagnose bad CV Joints in a parking lot by slowly, safely driving in a circle forwards and backwards making the joint noise more pronounced. If it is a CV Joint, my advice would be to spend the extra few bucks and replace the whole shaft while you're there. Its quicker and easier requiring less specialty tools to complete the job.

My husband changed out the wheel bearing on the front passenger side a few months back. Now a few days ago there is a grinding noise whe we turn left or put pressure on the brakes. He was told it could be...


If the bearing was bad or he did a bad job, then the wheel should be lose and you would feel it shimmy or vibrate.

If he is very careful he can jack up the car so that tire comes off the ground, then try and move the wheel from side to side, top and bottom play and in and out, there should not be any looseness or play. If there is this might be the problem.

But if not, then it's the CV. A grinding noise while turning is almost 95 percent a CV joint problem.

What about the strut mounts. Have the ball joints be checked. If u gas the car does it pop? Or maybe a wheel bering if its really loose.

Replaced struts on 1999 ford taurus but when turn left or hit a bump makes a clunck noise sometimes


Sounds like somthing is loose. Identify the corner and pull that unit apart. If you find no loosness, replace strut.
This presumes no clunk noise until this repair event.

Dodge Durango Automatic Door Lock problems


if you have a factory alarm, or an after market alarm, this will click in sometimes if there is a problem with the alarm and cause the locks to click open and closed... you are better off just disconnecting the alarm sometimes tho this will disable the power locks, so try taking it to a show that does nothing but alarms and such, and have them disconect the door lock feature on the alarm that way you can still use the power door locks... hope this helps you out....
