Question about 2004 Jaguar S Type

1 Answer

My car makes a loud clunking noise at around 65mph.

My car makes a loud clunking noise( as if dragging a cone) after about 65-70 mph.and stops when the speed is reduced. During the clunking moment, there are no wheel vibrations and runs well at low speed. This problem started about 3 months ago 8 months after the extended warranty expired.
It is a 54 plate and has a high motorway mileage on the clock but regularly serviced. I have of course been back to the Jaguar garage but they have been politely unhelpful

I have recently carried out wheel allignment and balacing and changed rear tyres but the loud noise (which appeares to be coming from the rear of the car) has persisted. I am very concerned that the car might pack up when my wife is driving the car.
I have lost a bit of the supreme confidence I have in driving the car.
Can you help?

Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.

Good luck!!

It sounds like you could have a problem with your wheel bearings.Wheel bearings do not have to feel loose to be noisy .A way to check would be to jack the front wheel off the ground.Support the front with jack stands under the lower control arms.Have someone drive the car with the wheels in the air and use a stethescope to listen for noise at the front bearings.
Note that feathering of the tires can also cause the noise.Feel for sharp edges on the inside or outside of your tires.

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi

It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.
