We are deaf here.
why not ask a live person, to find the location first.
CV joints or what ever the source is.
even loose mounts and brackets on any engine can clunk.
as can exh. parts.
takes live mech, to do this ,no net bunnies. blind and deaf.

Why does my 1996 geo prizm clunk when put in reverse?


A clunk sound is usually normal. Keep in mind that you're engaging another piece of the transmission that makes it turn backwards.

1990 Geo Prizm sounds like a knocking sound under power coming from around the front hub. when i release the accelerator the noise disappears. what is this mysterious issue.


This noise is caused by a worn or damaged front drive axle Constant Velocity Joint (CV for short), there is one of them at each front wheel just behind the brake disk on the end of the drive axle, they have a rubber cone shaped grease boot over the joint, check to see if the grease boot is torn, the joint then runs dry of grease and makes noise, at that point it must be replaced. Have a shop put in the air and inspect them both.

I would still suspect the drive axle because it could very well be the inner joint of the axle clicking and not making the accustomed noises related to a drive shaft noise.Thanks Megabuck

When I was driving my 1996 Geo Prizm at around 25mph, I heard a popping sound and then the grinding started like it was rubbing metal to metal. When I turn to the right, it sounds louder. I had the brakes...


CV Joint went out. since it gets worse when you turn right it is most likely an inside drivers side CV joint or the out side passenger side. The popping sounds was probably the dust boot popping from pressure build up which should make it simple to locate since you just need to identify the boot with a tear in it.

The clicking and clunking may be your front wheel drive drive-shafts, or transmission and/or engine mounts and the squealing is most likely belts but also check your power steering fluid level too. If your not sure, make some calls to some local garages suggested by friends and find someone that will give you a free written estimate. GOOD LUCK !

1996 Geo Prizm power steering noise


Hi:
If you have been loosing fluid for some time, and running the car with low fluid in the power steering pump, then the pump is most likely worn and causing your noise. Do you know where your leak is? You might need just a power steering hose, but no matter what, your power steering pump is the most likely cause of your noise!

Loud roaring noise when driving. Noise even louder when driving in curves and removing feet from accelerator


my best advice is not to replace your bearings on your own unless you know to do it perfectly.get an authorized service personnel to do it. since incorrect torque(tightening ) to the wheels may drastically affect your tyres, engine performance as well as your mileage.
