Clicking noise under the Toyota 1998 Rav4

I have a 1998 Toyota Rav4. I hear clicking noises under the car (seems directly under the engine) when I am driving. I changed front shock absorbers last week hoping they were the problems. I hear less noise but I still hear noises, especially when I driving over rough roads. Any insight? Thanks!

Mcdevito75 here, It could be inner tie rod ends or most like ly worn CV joints in the front axles. Have your auto repair shop check these items for you.

What is clicking noise that seems to be coming from the driver's side wheel?

Check out your constant velocity joint on that wheel. If the boot is broken and debris has gotten in there it is possible that the joint is damaged and ready to go. When it does, You stop going!!!!!!! Engine will rev but no power to wheel.

Noise most pronounced when you make a turn and joint is under stress.

1988 Toyota Camry LE clicking noise during acceleration

start with premium gas or injector cleaner, could be a low octane ping. this may be hard to diagnose with out hearing the noise so the other thing i would have you do is remove the belts and run the engine. sometimes when a bearing in an alternator, idler pulley, a/c compressor or belt tensioner goes bad they can make a clicking noise. try to listen if the noise is coming from the belt area, the transmission area or some other spot. spin all the pulleys with the engine off and wiggle them to see if any are bad

A single click when you turn the key to the crank position usually indicates a bad starter. A rapid clicking noise usually indicates a dead battery. If you hear a click and everything goes dead there is a bad connection at the battery.
