Yeah a broken engine mount.. Here is how to check this..

1.) pop the hood,
2.) have someone start the vehicle
look at the engine,,
3.) press acclerator,,
4.) put in drive and press acclerator with brake fully depressed
5.) put in reverse and do the same,
put in part lock all to the right
6.) put in park and lock all to the left and press acclerator..

now with the above test ,, watch and see if the engine ,, move bask and up, leaps up, rushes foward etc.. basically your looking for the engine shifting.. This is causing the noice when u push the break and rough idling..

My 1997 GMC jimmy is making a loud noise it seems to be coming from the passenger side front tire I check the hub it spinng good


If the problem is at the wheel, two possible causes are a bad wheel bearing or worn brake pads. Both of these noises will only be experienced with the vehicle on the ground and moving. Also, if this is a FWD truck and it only occurs when accelerating, it can also be caused by a failing drive axle or bad transfer case bearing.

Ive got a 06 grand caravan that shimmies and pulls hard to the right. Any guesses as to what might be the cause. Broken axel?tie rod bushing ?


There are a number of different things that could cause that problem, a bad tire, a lower or upper control are bushing, a worn out inner or outer tire rod end l, a bad wheel bering. To figure out exactly where the problem is you need to visually and physically inspect each side of the suspension by having someone move the steering wheel back and forth while you observe both sides from underneath the front of the vehicle. From there you should be able to see what is moving when it shouldn't be or not moving when it should. Also inspect your brake rotors. You may simply need new rotors and brake pads.

Loud banging noise right front wheel. shimmies ,can't drive over 25mph


I agree with the axle CV joint choice.
Could also be a brake or wheel bearing failure, but the CV joint is the most likely given the symptoms.

2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right


This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

Why is my abs light on in my 03 chevy? and on the passanger side the front tire is roaring really bad when i drive, please help


Ok, there are sensors on your front wheel hubs. This could easily cause the abs light to turn on. The loud noise could easily be your wheel hub going bad. Easiest way to check, jack up the front of the truck, grab tire, shake back and forth and up and down. Same amout of play each way? You're wheel hub is bad.......

Front end shimmys when accelerating and under a load when reaching 35 to 55 mph???


Start by driving the car very slow down a flat road. If the sterring wheel wobbles back and forth do this. If you know which side has the worst shimmy jack the front wheels off the ground so you can rotate each tire freely. Have another person with you for four eyes are better than two for this proceedure. One will rote each front tire slowly looking for a buldge in the tire. If you do see a buldge in the side wall or on the tread area which sticks out that is cqaused by a broken belt in the tire. That will cause a shimmy as you drive.

Slight shimmy while driving, but intensifies when braking


This could be caused by worn front end parts, and or unbalanced tires. to test with engine off the key in the ignition switch turned to the run position turn the wheel back and forth not enough to move the tires, if the steering wheel moves more than 2 inches then you have a problem and I can tel you how to test the front end parts to determine how to fix. If it's worse with the brakes applied then it is just amplifying the problem.

Bmw e46 loud vibration noise from front wheel


usually noise complaint can be pretty tricky to repair. especially if its intermittent. since you say it only when its cold my first guess would have to be a wheel bearing. some other things you can check is how the tires are wearing. when you rub your hand along the tread is it smooth or does the tread catch your hand. if your tires aren't wearing smooth noise complaints can be heard while slightly turning, braking, or even accelerating.also if its a wheel bearing you can lift the vehicle up in the rear (turn off your dsc) and run the rear tires up to speed. usually you can hear a loud wheel bearing. also you can drive the vehicle and swerve back and forth and see if the nosie changes. depending on which side of the vehicle suspension is being loaded
