It sounds like the CV joint is at the end of it's life and needs to be replaced soon as possible before a total failure which would be an extra cost to tow it to the auto shop. Note it's better to have the CV joint repaired at a transmission shop since that's what they specialize in. Good luck and keep me posted.

I`m driving an audi a6 1997 model(166 000 k`s). sometimes when i accelerate quickly i hear a bang, i dont what it is. secondlyone of my front and rear wheels when ever i turn especially in the morning i...

Sounds like either a motor mount is out or got play in the drivetrain. pop the hood and while in park push and pull the car to see how much movement you get with the engine. if it is a motor mount youll see alot of movement if it is tight and still hear a bang it is in the drivetrain.

IE.... axles/transmission.

Why does so much heat enter my 2004 audi s4 from the transmission tunnel?


the cause is the exhaust system and the two-way catalystic converter system of your S4.

The converters become very hot if you put the hammer down (app. 500 deg. celsius on the outside) and even though there are heatshields mounted between the converters and the vehicle´s floor, you can feel the heat inside.

The transmission itself is producing high temperatures as well, so no worries, remember your S4 is sport´s car ;)

2000 Audi S4 Manual Transmission car - starting issue

Before you do anything expensive... check the battery cables, particularly the black earth lead where it connects to the engine block/bodywork. Also check the cleanliness and tightness of the battery terminal clamps themselves.

In the engine bay also look for any other black earthing cables. Loosen and retighten them (I.e .. clean them..). A bad earth can cause numerous problems.

It sounds as though you have an earthing problem with the car. You may have an additional problem with the under-dashboard electronics, which has been causing intermittent working of some instruments. However, this may also be due to a badly/corroding earth wire somewhere. Do the simple things first and if the problem persists see a decent auto electrician.

Popping Sound in Steering Gear - 94 F150

this is a guess but the inner tie rod and tie rod end (you have one of each on each side of the truck), wear out and make a loud clunk, mostly when changing direction, but also on starting & stopping. ABout a $200 repair including a front end alignment.

Call at least 3 shops for an estimate including your Ford dealer.
