You may have a loose or worn engine or transmission mount. With your foot on the brake and in gear, check to see if the engine if moving around excessively when you apply about 1/4 throttle. A shift of about an inch or two is normal. If one side of the engine moves up or down more than that, there is a mount problem somewhere.

Have the constant velocity joints looked at. Make sure there is enough grease in them and the rubber boots haven't been torn. Also have the engine mounts looked at. Worn rubber parts in the mounts can make that knocking sound when you go into reverse.

Grinding sound


Is the knocking sound when the car is moving or sitting still as well? Does the grinding sound happen just as you put the car into reverse or does it keep grinding?
These transmissions are very problematic, especially if they are not properly maintained. The most likely candidates are a cracked flywheel or a broken drum inside the transmission. Either way, it sounds like the transmission will have to be removed to pinpoint the problem.

I have a 2003 chevy cavalier and is making a constant loud knocking noise on the inside passanger side. What could it be? Please help!


My 03 had a recall on the HVAC controls, it was getting stuck inside the HVAC box and making a clicking or knocking sound from the same area

It ended up being something like a door that moves when you switch the air from moving from the defrost to the feet position getting stuck

Hope this helps

Something knocking in a steering system on my 98 civic


Suspect worn outer cv joint. Check the boot for any tears, damage or leaking grease. If these are present your cv joint will fail soon if it hasn't already. If you put the car into reverse and turn the wheels to a hard lock a bad cv joint will make a popping grinding type sound. Try left and right turns when doing this test.
