Clunking noise from the pass. side when on rough road or turning sharply;2001 buick lesabre


Hi,
You'll need to take it to a repair shop to get it properly diagnosed. It could be a part of the front suspension/steering, the CV axle or other part.

Squeaking noise while driving on rough of uneven road


check for dry/worn rubbers on the suspension, stabiliser bar, shocky rubbers , dry/worn ball joints
if you have fitted polyurethane bushes instead of rubber , they will be loose on the suspension bolts.

Subframe bushings symptoms


Micpherson strut or independent front. If its the MacPherson strut design of the car on your picture, then clunks on rough pot holed roads or rough dirt. Al's a weird one is a clunk may or may not be heard and /or felt upon first application of breaks. Sometimes noticeable that car travels straight then when brakes applied it suddenly pulls to right or left. If accompanied with a brake squeak then Its a wheel bearing. On independent front suspension all previous symptoms plus one. A ticking sound that is repetative or described as a clicking noise, very faint though. Usually only heard with windows rolled down and driving 20 to 30 mph with a concrete wall next to lane, which echo's the noise to driver but not when in open country, could also be symptoms of control arm bushings. Sway bar bushings only make noise on rough roads. Cabin bushings and all others can usually be visabily checked. If no cracks then its good if small hair line cracks, keep an eye on it, if large cracks and possibly with pieces missing, replace . if its a Chevy replace control arm bushing adjuster bolts. They get grooves wore in them defeating the reason your replacing the bushings as it will still have play, make noise. Etxc. Oh the other symptom is when road tilts to the right side being lower then left then vehicle pulls to right. But if road sloped the other way then pulls that way and usually no pull either way on level ground.. Some pull is natural but too much is bad. Hope it helps. What noise and when does it do it? Where and what are you doing as well as how fast and I could help narrow your possible problems.

could it be the brake pad wear tabs telling you your pads arealmost gone? Check your bearing with vehicle off ground and slowly rotate tire to feel smooth movement at spindle. if noise coincides with rough road it is suspension parts/bushings

My 1998 Chevrolet c1500 4x2 5.7 v8 left front wheel makes, what could be the problem. I just had a watepump replaced a few days ago, could this have anything to do with the wheel or brake getting too hot?


No, the water-pump would not effect the wheels. I am going to assume it is a noise that the front left wheel makes, and here are some common causes:
  • Bearings
  • Brake pads
  • Suspension
  • tire rub
  • loose lug
Do these noises occur constantly during the drive? (This is most likely a bearing)
Only while braking? (Break pads)
When hitting rough roads? (Suspension_
