Hi and Welcome to fixya.com

  • On this model it could be three different things,(1) check the suspension tie rods for excessive play,(2) check for wheel bearing noise,(3) check for worn c.v. joint.
  • Best regard.

My 2000 model mazda protege makes a clunk when making sharp turns, accelerating or shifting from 1st to 2nd gear?


Sounds like a bad cv joint. Easy way to check is to raise the front of the vehicle so both front tires are off the ground. Use jack stands under the vehicle and block the rear tires. Start the engine and put the tranny in drive. Let the front wheels rotate while the engine is idling and turn the steering wheel slowly in both directions. Listen for the clunking noise. You may have to speed the engine up a little to make it work.

Will clunk hard when accelerating slowly, and then


Is the clunk noticed as soon as the brake pedal is released? Your brake shoes engage in the rear drum when the brake pedal is pressed and then release as the brake pedal is released. Your shoes may be worn and might be "hanging up" for a brief period, that would make a clunk sound your describing

I have a loud clunking noise that happens when I turn the steering wheel left and right. And I have a clunk when you put in to drive, but when car is warmed up it doesn't seem to be as bad. Can anyone...


The clunk you are hearing when the car is placed into drive is the "slack" in the drive train being taken out. It should pose no problem and without knowing the type of car you are driving is difficult to judge if it may be something more serious. If anything it could be the universal or CV (constant Velocity) joints making the sound from excess wear. The clanking when the wheel is turned could be CV joints getting old and needing replaced (Front wheel drive and 4WD only. Rear Wheel drive Universal Joint) or it could be excessively worn parts in the steering system. Definitely have this looked at.

Rear end thumping noise


Depending on the year of your gto it could be a buggered CV joint on one of your back wheels. All GTO/3000GT are four wheel drive but up to the mid to late 90's they had four wheel steering. The usual symptoms of a buggered CV joint are loud rattling and/or vibrating from the affected wheel at around 30 - 40 mph and often a loud clunk when cornering at low speed
