You should get a new drive shaft or get yours rebuilt. There is a guide socket and ball in between your CV joints. If that wears out you will here a knocking when torque is applied to the drive shaft. Hope this helps!

Engine ticking

Hi, what you mean with ticking noise. In my understanding like you talking about tapet noise. First try to change your engine oil. If the noise still coming you have problem with hydraulic lefters.

Hello i own a peugeot 207 and when i accelerate there is a rattling noise in my car it only really happens in 5th gear, some have told me it may be the gearbox others say it could be a bearing lose anyone...

It might be a gear box can drive in 4th gear up to 100km/h. observe the noise, if noise is coming when you drive in high speed like in 80-100km/h then there will be no issue with the gear box.observe is there any bubbling when you drive fast?, observe from where the noise is coming likle from the rear side or from the front and check noise is coming from left side or rite side. It might be a problem with the wheel.

May be you should make sure all the oil levels are good and especially the tranfer oil and check the drive shaft's center bearing as well.

I have a 97 chevy s10 and their is a knocking noise when i turn left or right

what is happening is your spider gears and side axle gears are probably going out... it might also be the ring and pinion... just happened to my 2000 S10 and turns out spider gears were toasted... have a mechanic check out your differential. you pop the clutch alot?
