A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.

My front of my car vibrates like crazy everytime I accelerate and turn right but when I let off the has it stops


Sounds like maybe a busted motor mount or transmission mount, or a worn out cv drive axle.Look under the front of the car at the drive axles there is 4 rubber boots 2 on each axle inner boot and outer boot.See if one or more of the boots is torn or split.

This sounds to me like you have a drive axle (CV-Joint) going bad on the passenger side. Hope this helps, TJ

Clicking noise down by the front tires.


check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

CAr made loud clunk and now the gears dont catch and when the van is put in park there is a grinding. Three van also can be pushed when in park.


Most likely you have a broken axle.Could be a differential problem inside of transaxle but really it sounds like a bad axle.With the car in drive and someone holding the brakes if you can see one of the axles rotating that is the bad one.Should be able to get an axle replaced for 300 dollars or less.

Steering noise when turning right


Sounds like 1 bad CV joint. Not sure which side. Look at the front axles, and if 1 or more of the boots are torn then that one is most likely the culprit. If you can grab the axles, feel for free plat. A decent shop will be able to pinpoint the bad CV joint and either grease it and replace the boot, or more likely, replace the complete axle on the bad side.

I have a 2001 kia optima and the mechanic told me it was the axel, when i turn it has a clicking sound


The clicking sound comes from the CV joint, which is part of the axle half shaft. There is a right and a left. When one is going bad, the other is most likely in similar condition, so you'll probably want to replace them both. What typically happens is the rubber boot fails, letting the grease come out of the CV joint and no longer keeping foreign matter out.

Loud knocking sound from front drive axle side


I really doubt that its the spider gears that are bad. Most likely that its the axle shaft- not as bad as it sounds- I sell lots of them.

Rear Axle Bearing Replacement


That absolutely sounds like an axle (wheel) bearing. Jack up that corner of the truck and grab the top and bottom of the wheel, and shake like crazy. If you have any play whatsoever, it's a sign of a bad bearing (although you could have a bad one and not have any play - it would only mean the bearing isn't worn badly enough to cause looseness in the wheel).

You should be able to remove the axles without opening the diff up. If the axles have c-clips or snap rings on the ends inside the diff, you can usually get the axles out by dismounting them from the hubs and getting them free of all attachment except the diff, and then use a large flat-tip screwdriver as a pry bar. Use it right where the axle body mates to the diff, and lever it while you pull/yank/shake/swear at the axle, and you'll manage to pop the axle out of the diff. Sometimes it takes some time and profanity, but so far it's worked for me everytime.
