The fastest way to determine this is to go to a garage that will put the car up on a lift. Then the technician can see what is loose. Most likely it is either the exhaust, the drive train, or the motor mounts.

While is my 2007 chevy uplander rear end so noisy?


Could be the exhaust system hitting the frame or body of vehicle when you hit a bump. There should be some wear marks where the pipe is hitting.

Banging noise when you drive


This is a hard problem to describe, I know, and I will toss out a few possibilities. If the noise occurs when the car is accelerating, it can be motor mounts, or carriage mounts on front-wheel drive vehicles. Transmissions can bang into gear. Drive shaft u-joints can bang before they fail. C-V joints in front wheel or 4 wheel drive units can bang when worn out.

The exhaust system can break loose and bang on the frame. Brake calipers can rock in their mounts and transmit sound. Tie-rod ends can make a knocking noise on every bump you hit. There were recalls on gas tank straps for some Ford made units, so a loose gas tank can bang.

Shock suspension


Could be the exhaust system hitting on something when the suspension moves. Inspect under the car and look for shiny spots that are making contact.

I have a banging under my ford windstar paid 2000 for van have put 10000 into it have always have fords love them but this problem mechanics cant figure it out......driving me crazy


It could be any one of a number of things:-
Exhaust system
Anti roll bar on front suspension
Stabilising arms
gear linkages
Wishbone joints
ball joints
rear suspension linkages
shock absorbers
engine or gearbox mounts.
flat spots on wheels

Try figure out if the noise only happens under certain circumstances like road surfaces or wheel speeds or engine speeds, and try narrow down the source.

Clunk/rattle noise and vibration when going over bumps at lower speeds. Seems to happen more in colder temps


Could be a loose exhaust hanger or a suspension issue. You will need to raise the vehicle up on a rack and visually inspect the truck for the problem. Start by using your fist or a rubber mallet to bang on the exhaust system and suspension to see if you can simulate the noise and identify the problem. Definently inspect it or have it inspected because if something is broken/loose it could come apart on you while you are driving.

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.


Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.
