SOURCE: 2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.

Grab the bed of the truck and vigorously rock the vehicle from side to side. If you hear clunking in the axle, you probably need to check the carrier bearings in the differential. I had the carrier bearings, wheel bearings, and seals replaced in my mother-in-law's 1991 Ranger for $280, and it rides like a new truck. Well, ok, it rides like an 18 year old truck with a new rear end. I provided the wheel bearings and seals to the shop, and they provided the carrier bearing, lube, and labor. While the axles are out, check the surface where the axles ride on the bearings. If they are worn, there are undersized bearing available, but it is usually cheaper and easier to just by new axles.

SOURCE: rear suspension left side makes a knocking sound while driving

There are a few suspension parts that can cause knocking noises. Such as swar bar loose, strut mounts going bad. You should really have a shop do a complete suspension check.

It sounds like 1 of 2 problems but to start with jack up the drivers side rear of car and block front wheels with 2 blocks of wood or 2 bricks , put a stand under chassis and then your safe to work.
Release hand brake and spin rear wheels ..and then hold 1 hand bottom and top and try to shake the wheel.. any movement means worn bearings ..any noise when spinning means worn wheel bearings..If ok
get under the car and bang the exhaust all along and if the rattle comes when you get to the muffler you have you answer.
Let me know how you get on . RON

Get the codes pulled, sounds like you are in limp mode and I am guessing an issue with the transmission.

My 1999 ford expidition sounds like its shifting in overdrive when i reach about 40 miles per hour, the engine gets loud sounds a jet taking off.


You have it backwards

What you hear is engine noise from
higher rpm, because your trans is not
upshifting, as a result of your input on
the gas pedal

You need to have a trans or repair shop find out why
you have a delayed or no shift condition

When you get to 4th or 5th gear (overdrive) you also
get torque converter lock-up & things should get quieter

I have a 2002 pontiac montana. Yestarday I started hearing a knocking noise in the front end when I am driving and idleing. II also feel the knocking on my floor board and feel a vibration in my gas pedal....


Lissa,
Hate to deliver the bad news, but it doesn't sound good... One of the simple things you can do is to check the oil and see what it looks like, if it is foamy, you got water in to the oil and a major expense. the nest woudl be to have a compression check done, it shouldn't take a good mechanic but a half hour to diagnose and estimate.
Best regards,
Ck

My 2002 Impala started knocking while on the freeway. I couldn't try past twenty miles per hour without it knocking again, I put two and a half quarts of gas and it's still knocking!


ok just checking well usaully when it starts knocking that means that either the cam bearings or the crank shaft bearings are already damaged and if the knock is coming from either placemits not good how many miles are on it

2002 pontiac montana passanger pwr window


I beleive you need to change the Power Window Switches Module in the drivers side door panel, as these connections are interlinked within this module and it is usually the first part that fails. Especially that you already changed the switches & motor in the passenger door and it still does not work. Once you remove the dual switch module in the driver's side door, you will understand what I mean. Plus it is really easy to access. Good luck! I have the same model, Claude

My montana 2002 engine is noisy when start but gone after 2 minute. What's the problem?


depending on the noise, I know the 3.4 had a TSB out for excesssive piston to cylinder clearance, which would cause a light knocking noise on cold start. On the other hand it may be loosing the prime on the oil pump. Kinda of hard to say exactly with actually hearing it. ; <

2001 Pontiac Montana van, the rear window washer does not put out the cleaning fluid?


have someone push the washer button while someone else goes back to the rear and listens for a humming noise. if there is no noise then the little pump that shoots the fluid out is not working.
If there is a humming noise then the line is clogged.
hope this helps

Engine was knocking loudly and then stopped


When the timing chain goes if the valves are fully open they won't clear the pistons (likely the loud thump you heard) when they come to TDC. Likely looking at a full blown valve job now, make sure it didn't crack or warp the heads in the process. With 192,000 miles on it it was probably due for one anyway. Easiest way is to pull the heads off the block and send them in for a machining and valve train replacement (about 4-$600.00 if you DIY.

Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
