May be time for some new plugs & wires. A little maintenance such as fuel filter, air filter etc, if not done lately, wouldn't hurt either. Try going up hill with full tank & 1/4 tank, just to see if any difference, but I'm betting on plug wires breaking down under load, especially if they are getting old.

Are cv joints expensive


Boot kits start at $20. if you need the whole drive shift with the joints then around $100 apiece.

My Olds alero 01 2.4 has a metallic tapping noise when in drive, oil pressure light flickers on left turns only, and rpms jump and car bucks at over 65mph. Oil level is fine, just changed it. 72k


The tapping must be a drive train problem, not the engine where it would be tapping all the time. It could be a transmission/transaxle internal problem, or it could be a bad CV joint on the drive shafts. The drive shafts, or half shafts as they are called-one for each side of the car-connect the transaxle to the wheels, and the CV joints on the shafts allow for turning movement and for car suspension movement, while maintaining constant power to the wheels.

As for the oil light and the car bucking, I really would have a shop check the engine's oil pressure to see if it is acceptable. The light only comes on or even flickers at very low oil pressure, and that could be worrisome. It could cause expensive engine repairs. So I suggest you have an oil pressure check along with the tapping in drive, and go from there. They all sound like unrelated events, but you never know.

Does the 1988 Nissan Stanza have U-joints? The reason I ask is because when the car shifts it jolts. And when you put it in gear it jolts and vibrates. I looked under the car and I dont see a driveline. Is...


Hi, yes you have front wheel drive. The drive shafts are on each side going from the transaxle to the wheels. each axle has 2 constant velocity (CV) joints. This is a bit different than a U-joint but serves the same purpose. There are 2 indications of a worn out CV joint. Id the boot is torn, the CV will wear out due to dirt getting in. If you hear a popping noise when making a sharp turn, that is a worn our CV joint. If your boots are intact and there is no popping on turns, the odds are the problem is not with the joints but somewhere else in the drive train. Raise the car and turn the wheels by hand to see where the play is coming from. let us know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

1997 chevy cavalier 5 speed makes a popping noise in front right when shifting


Unless I'm way wrong. 4 cyl, front wheel drive? Your constant velocity joint has either lost its boot, losing all the grease or the joint is worn out. This is a repair for experienced gear heads. Not for amateurs.

Inner cv joints


inner cv joints are the joints on the inner half of the axle shaftswhere they go into the transmission. sometimes the easiest thing to do is replace the axle shafts
