Sounds like a silent block bush on the suspension somewhere ,ask a local garage to lift car up and put a crowbar into the works to look for a worn or loose something

2002DodgeRam1500 quad cab,when I drive in reverse,to park,when I hit the brakes a noise comes out like an old drum brake ,except mine are disc brakes.The pads are thick and even.Any ideas


well if your brakes are working well i would ignore it but if brakes don't work well i would take pads off the rear brakes and lubricate the slides and also put some behind the pad plate where the piston touch's the pad!! when u put brakes on going forward the pads slightly move forward and then when you go backwards it moves even more and i think thats what causing it!

My 2006 Infiniti g35x has a thump thump thump sound coming from the front end


A tire can have an internal flaw. Can you figure out which one it is? Maybe mark them and then rotate them to see if the sound moves with the tire...

Hissing sound on the drivers side. Goes away when you hit the brake.


I have had the same problem with my 05 Escape and it was actually the rubber boot behind the brake pedal that was torn if I started the car and pressed down on the brake with my hand and let it up I could feel the air coming off of the boot.

Check engine light came on today honda accord v6 2003 at 97k miles. car makes a thump sound when put into reverse hot or cold. sometimes when i turn and accelerate i can reproduce this feeling moving...


Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

My truck starts normal. the speedotemeter does


well it seems like there is a wire under your steer column that is rubbed through and being touched when you hit the brakes, or with the slowing down of gravity a wire is bare wire is moving forward and hitting ground.

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

2005 honda accord noise when breaking (transaxle)


You say you hear the noise when you "slow down". Does this mean you hear the thumping noise when you let off the gas and let the car coast to a stop or only when you are applying the brakes to decellerate?
If you only hear the noise while applying the brakes then I would assume it has something to do with your brakes. The first thing that comes to mind would be rotors that aren't true or warped which could make a thumping sound.

Do you feel any vibrations in your foot when it is applying pressure to the brake pedal? If you do feel a sort of pulsating feeling then it could very well be your brakes making the noise.

I hope I was of some assistance,
