There is a defect in the rear offside chassis leg. The internal captive bolt cage breaks free and allows the chassis legs to bang against each other. Put the car up on the side jacks, put a screww driver or jekky between the two chassis members and check for movement. If there is any movement the internal captive bolt cage is broken. Most garages, including Landrover agents are welding the chassis legs together. The proper repair is to cut a hole in the floor under the rear seat, remove the old bolt and replace it with anew one. You must then either re-weld the floor or get a grommit to form an ai/water tight seal. Welding is only a temporay fix and will break again

Grinding/rubbing noise after transmission bearing repair. made a popping noise while driving at normal speed. starting making banging noise. gets louder the faster you go. changes gears fine though.


an educated guess would be that the flex plate isn't on correctly , id get it back to repair place , if flex plate is it and it falls off or breaks then input shaft will break as well !!

Why does it makes a growling noise?


noises are from chipped teeth, bad bearings , misaligned gears or incorrect meshing of gears . If the noise is on drive under load in 4th gear it will be a pinion bearing If the noise is in overdrive ,(coasting down hill or to ma stop , it will be pinion bearings (diff). If it is in 1st gear it will be input shaft bearing in gear box . If it is in overdrive it will be out put shaft or rear lay shaft bearing Gear box.

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.

I have 1997 GMC Suburban. It will crank but when you have it in gear it goes no where when you press the gas and makes a loud noise. Was told it might be the flywheel. I am not a mechanic and don't have...


If it's not a transmission problem, which is usually the case, I would check to make sure your drive shaft is still connected and that the u-joints are in good shape. If you can possibly see under the truck while someone presses the gas, you can see if the drive shaft is turning. If the drive shaft is spinning and its still not engaging, that loud noise may very well be the gears grinding/broke inside the back axle (rear differential). Just a few things to check, hope it helps in some way!

Hi, when i'm coming off the third and the second gear mainly the 2nd gear it makes a clanking noise


My first thought here is your drive shaft u joints, but only because I've been stranded more than once by these. The higher torque of second will definitely make a worn u-joint "clunk". with the window down listen carefully as you engage and release your clutch in 1st gear, if you here any "clunking" noise I would check your u-joints. To do this SAFELY;ie, using jack stand etc. get under your car and try to turn the drive shaft by hand with the car in gear. ANY play in the drive shaft is bad. I'm not sure if you meant you've changed your clutch and the pressure plate or you did change out you flywheel. either way whichever you did not change could definitely be warped.

There was a roaring noise that sounded like it was coming from the transmission. This went on for a long period of time because I didnt know what was causing it. The roaring would stop when I would press...


unlikely
the problem is in the transmission
if the noise stopped when in 4th gear then that indicates main shaft and counter shaft bearing problems
there is no actual 4th gear but a sliding dog that locks the input shaft to the main output shaft making te drive a complete shaft
that means that there is no side load on the bearings and so the noise stops
when all of the balls get to one side of the race because the cage has failed , then the gears can get out of mesh and lock up on the teeth
At this point a box removal and pull down by an accredited transmission shop would be in order to get a proper diagnosis and quote
I suspect that another box from a wreckers or junk yard will be the cheaper repair option

When I put my 95 windstar into drive or reverse I get a wheel hop and thump sound. Drives fine other than that. do you think its ball joint, motor or trans mount?


well without hearing it, i would think its a cv-shaft that has too much play banging around there...at the same time, it also sounds like it could something internal in the trans spinning too far before engaging....mounts usually makes noise under load..just after you put it in gear, and step on the accelerator pedal, you will then hear a clunk..not as soon as you put it in gear, unless extremely bad.

700 r4 shift hard


The u-joints could cause the banging when you put it in gear. You might want to check the kick down cable. If it's out of ajustment it can cause the hard shift. The transmission thinks the motor is going faster then what it is and will shift harder. Put the car up on jack stand in the rear and put the tranny in neutral.turn the drive shaft back and forth with your hand and see if you hear the clunk or bang you heard when you put it in gear. if not then I would go with the kick down cable being to tightor to short on ajustment. However you want to look at it.

1990 jeep wrangler rear end "bang" noise then jeep would move,


Could be several things. Does the rear drive shaft have any play in it? If so, could be that the spider gears, ring gear, or pinion gear or bearing have disintegrated. If it was the pinion or ring, it will cost several hundred dollars for the new ring gear and setup. It is not a part you will be able to install yourself.

Weird "bang" coming out under my chevrolet Suburban 1988


This is Caused by a Pinion Gear Tooth being Broken off inside the Rear end. Eventually this will get worse and wind up Shelling out the Rear end. You can Rebuild the Rear end or Get a Replacement But, One of them will need to be done Pretty soon. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
