Is it a clicking sound ??
If so - could be a cv joint making the noise..
Check your cv boots for cracks, spits or seperation..
Also could be a wheel bearing..

Hope this helps !!

I can't figure out the banging noise coming from center underneath dash When I drive it down the road, no noise until I turn from left to right. If I turn it left to right and apply brakes there is no...

big bang theory.

Ok, I've never heard of this happening to someone. If you turn left or right and apply brakes there is no noise. That means that the front end is probably ok. If it doesn't seem loose that way.

If you have a Sears nearby take it to them so they can listen to this banging.

They probably won't charge to look at it.

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new alternator but car won't start, it just clicks?

the clicks are a signature of a bad battery, since your is new, it probally is not bad, i would try to jump the car with cables, even though your battery is new, you dont know how long is sat ont he shelf before you took it home, may be weak, 1 good jump to get the motor going and the alternator will charge it right up so wont have to so it again....

the only other thing is the starting system left to look at if that dont work is the starter, try banging on it a little with a hammer, not to hard though, as someone turns the key, this will sometime free up a locked up solinoid.

Good Luck

The engine is making a lot of noise and the timing belt has been replaced? i had someone look at and they think it is a bearing noise or something with one of the pistons? My son i going away to school in...


Need to know what kind of sound -- loud clunky, rattle, banging, pinging, hard metal, softer, etc., etc...

If it is indeed a bearing related to a piston, this would be a rod bearing, and, yes, that's kinda serious. It'll knock until something comes loose, then the engine is severely damaged.

I have a 97 mivec colt,i crashed it and fixed it but the car seems to be pulling all over the road and loud banging noise when turning and sterring jumps with the banging,wat could this be,some1 told me it...

Get your front end inspected. I bet something's binding in the suspension or in the steering components. Also, have someone make sure the frame isn't bent, which could cause your wandering. Lastly, get an alignment done. If tapping a curb while parking gently can mess up your vehicle's alignment, imagine what crashing it into something/someone does. Chances are you have front end repairs and an alignment ahead of you.

1996 buick won't start

Try having someone turn the key to the start position while at the same time someone else taps on the starter with a hammer. If starter begins to crank the engine or makes weird noises or begins to smoke then you need a starter. If nothing happens, then using a test light or a volt meter check for power at the "S" terminal of the starter solinoid when the key is turned to the start position. The "S" terminal is the small terminal to the right of the terminal where the battery cable goes when viewed with the battery cable terminal at the 12 Oclock position. (usually a purple wire). Hope this helps.
