Question about 2005 Nissan Sentra

Clunk noise from front passenger side when

"clunk" noise from front passenger side when driving slower speeds like 25-45 mph. At highway speed sometimes while turning right in a curved road rumbling noise but the sound stops when I turn the steering wheel more to the right like 2 or 3 o' clock position or more. The same day I started hearing a "chain rattling" sound on the driver side usually when I hit a bump in the road.
65,000 miles on it now

Also a day or two after experiencing the above, I started hearing a squealing noise and creaking like an old mattress on the driver side. But usually occurs when I leave for work at 530am and its a constant mattress squeak noise fast in tempo. And slower metal creaking noises like Im driving a piece of junk when driving out the the driveway.

That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen

Thumping noise right side front when accelerating around town at 25 mph. When on the highway, no much but it feels and sounds like something is going to fall out. What could it be?


This sounds like either a wheel bearing has gone bad or, if your car is front or all-wheel drive, you have a half-axle going. Either of these can leave you stranded when they fail completely, and they can be dangerous. Get this noise checked out by a competent mechanic now!

2005 Kia Sorento - in 4 wheel drive, on dry pavement, going slow in forward, turning a corner to the left the rear drivers side wheel tries going in reverse and when turning right the passenger side wheel...


Hi,
Yes, this is normal while in four wheel drive on pavement.
I will try and explain why.
In four wheel drive the front and rear drive axles are linked together by a chain in the transfer case and gears in both axles. This is a direct link with very little play between the front and rear axles.
When cornering a rear wheel will spin faster, or slower depending on the direction of the turn. this causes a binding in the drive line because the drive line wants all the wheels to turn at the same speed. So the wheel "skipping" going in reverse, is the drive lines way of compensating for the different speed of the wheels turning.
Never should a four wheel drive be used on dry pavement. I could cause a break in one of the drive line components. On a slippery surface , snow, mud, gravel, grass, There is enough slippage in the surface to aloow the driveline to compensate for the different speeds of tire rotation.
So do not try at highway speeds on dry pavement.
Your four wheel drive system is working just fine.

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds


That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.
