Every time I go over a speed hump even slow or a bump in the road there is a thump or bang from the front right wheel


the dealer is having you on
thumps , bumps and the like indicate something worn , loose or ready to go bad quick
it could be lower ball joints, upper control ball joints or upper mount if strut suspension
could be worn rubbers in the stabilizer bar area
Best take it to an accredited suspension specialist shop and have it checked out ( get a quote to fix) before it fails and causes serious damage
if it is serious and costly get a report and then front the dealer for the cost of repairs or talk with a lawyer

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.

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

Low traction light sometimes comes on.Weeks go by and it doesnot come on .Then all of a sudden low traction appears again


I have three 1997 Olds Cutlass's. They do it to! Nothing to worry about. They will do that in response to a bump, or washboard road driven over at a certain speed. The wheel speed sensor on each wheel tells the computer how fast each wheel is turning. If one wheel speed is faster than the other three, as when you hit a bump, the computer thinks it is loosing traction and flashes the light, and may or may not engage the ABS system to even up the speed on all four wheels.

Now if that light comes on, and STAYS on, that is another matter. It will only do that if a wheel speed sensor becomes faulty, and then the ABS light will override the traction light.

Drive on!!!

At freeway speeds if i hit a bump the front end will start to shake and shudder untill i reduce my speed


It could be because of worn out ball joints, or steering arm bushings. When ball joints wear out, they tend to rest against one end on even pavement, but as soon as you take the load off, such as in a bump, they go "crazy" and start banging against the stops until you reduce speed. If this has been going on for a while, there should be telltale signs on the wear pattern of the front tires. If you take the vehicle to a front end alignment place, they will tell you which parts have excessive play that should be replaced before aligning the front end.

I have a 2007 Silverado Classic 2500HD 4x4 Extended Cab 6.0 V8 I have 33" AT tires and Rancho RS5000 shocks (both are 18 months old) I recently replaced the front wheel hub assemblies, and religiously...


noises are a pig to diagnose from afar but i would get a can of spray silicon and spray one component at a time to find the noise...do it when dry and when you dont hear it guess what?.....

When I drive slow over bumps/speed bumps I hear a noise in the right front wheel well. The car does not seem take bumps well but seems to be better going over them at higher speeds. Shocks? Struts?...


It could be a bad Shock/Strut, Ball Joint or a bad CV Axle. Put the car on a lift and try to move the parts around to try to isolate the noise.
