If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?


cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

Have a shittering and clunk on shifting and my guess is a cv joint or joints. How do I check the cv joints?


Hi, the CV joints mainly make a noise when in a tight turn and it is a cluck-cluck type sound. Test it in a tight circle to the left and the right. The inner CV's normally make a noise when travelling in a straight line and are less likley to give trouble than the outer CV's. You can also feel for wear in a CV with the wheel off the ground and see if there is any play between the wheel and the drive shaft.
Hope it helps.......

My left front tire makes a rubbing or grinding noise when I drive. When I turn the wheel either way it also rumbles and bangs. What is causing this?


You could have a bad wheel bearing or a bad CV joint. Inspect your CV joint by turning the wheel all the way to the left and inspect the rubber boot for any signs of damage and see if there is any play by grabbing the CV joint and try to move it.
The other way to check is to drive the van slowly in an empty parking lot turning the wheel to one side and then the other. Listen for any abnormal noise and see if you can feel anything lose through you steering wheel.
If there is any signs of damage to the CV joint like oil leaking or movement. Replace the CV joint as soon as possible, and try not to drive the van till you have the CV joint replaced or the wheel bearing. Total CV joint failure will cause you to have the van towed to have it replaced. Try to drive it to the Garage to save you the tow cost.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Alot of road noise from front of car, suspect cv or drive train issue , As speed increases noise gets louder. Engine runs smooth, new tires 6mos. ago, alignment good.


MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF THIS IS THE WHEEL BEARING, DEFECTIVE CV JOINTS ONLY MAKE NOISE IN TURNS AND THAT IS A CLICKING NOISE,.

How do u tell if cv joint needs replaced


If you are hearing a clanking sound when driving you probably need to replace your CV joint.  One thing that you can look at is the CV boot.  If you are hearing noises coming from the CV joint, your boot is more than likely cracked or ripped completely.  The boot is directly behind the wheel and is easy to see if you turn the wheel all the way to the right or left.  Sounds like you need new CV joints though.

CV Joint Axle Replacement - How to Repair or Replace

Over time the rubber boots of the CV joints can become cracked, torn, or otherwise compromised. Once moisture and dirt get into a CV joint and grease makes its way out, the CV joints days are numbered. Signs of impending failures are a click-click-clicking or metallic crackling noise while turning and accelerating or a clunking upon deceleration. While one can repack, reboot, and rebuild CV axles, it makes more sense for the average do-it-yourselfer to procure replacement units and swap out the old axles. If a boot is torn or missing, it is possible to save the joint if caught early enough, but usually the damage has already been done. Replacing or servicing the entire CV joint axle assembly may be the smarter move since replacing a boot may involve removing an axle, which may also involve removing half or all of the vehicle's brakes and suspension.
