Chrysler lhs 1996. clunking noise from steering when not moving

Chrysler lhs 1996. So the car is in park, and I'm not touching the wheel. Engine is cold. I start up. sometimes I get the thunkthunk immediately. Most often, if I turn the steering wheel just a hair to the left (before the actual wheels have even moved), I get the thunkthunk for a few second (maybe 15 seconds). then it goes away. If I drove immediately, it goes away also. It is however getting louder.

SOURCE: Noise in Susp or Steering ("clunking") Chrysler Town & Country

Pretty common item on those is the upper strut mount & bearing assy. If it sounds like front wheel area. If it feels like it's under your feet, stabilizer bushings. Mounts are about $50 each roughly, but don't try to install yourself unless you have proper compression tools & are experienced at that particular job, as it could get very dangerous.

clear the 1-3 buttons on your visor by holding them down until you do not see the blinking light next to it ,after the light shuts off you can take your remote and aim it at the mirror or visor where your 3 buttons are located ,while holding down the button of your garage door opener press the button on you visor/mirror that you want to program it take a few minutes but it can also be programed from the opener smart button ,but you have to get the button in the car to learning mode first , you also can check your owners manual and it will also have information on how to program and also your car dealer can also do it for you when you get your oil changed! i hope i was able to help you and if i was helpful please leave me a nice rating thank you Sincerely glenn mayer

Clunking noise when turning steering wheel going slow around corner


A lot of these Chrysler Town and Country vans had issues with the front stabilizer bar end links, usually you wont feel them move if you try to move them by hand, but they will make an awful noise clunk noise when turning or going over bumps slowly, i would suggest replacing the end links and that should take car of your clunking issue. Also the front lower control arm bushings separate as well and can cause this noise as well.... but i would replace the end links as a first step and go from there.... Hope this helps..

2001 chrysler voyager makes loud noise when steering left and right - manual says lubricate steering wheel shaft. How is that done?


the shaft itself cannot be lubricated. at the bottom of the steering column under the dash move the carpet out of the way as much as possilble and look at the rubber boot,spraying somm sylicone lube in there will get rid of a rubbing noise. if it is making a clunking noise when steering look at the tie rods for loosesness. if it clunks when hitting bumps look at the ball joints and more than likely the stabilizer bushings at the lower controlarms and the body where it is attatched are worn out,this is quite common..

Is there a way that I can "tighten" up the steering wheel play?


Parts do wear out. Try this: Have a friend help you and have the vehicle on a solid surface (garage floor or better yet ramps) have your friend move the steering wheel back and forth just enough to take up the play (clunk to clunk) then go around to the moving parts and you can feel where the play is. Don't overlook the coupler at the base of the steering column. You don't necessarly need the engine running (Less blood that way) This usually works very good finding where the play is. You may even be able to follow the clunk noise. Let me know how this works for you?

Popping noise


Inner tie rods could make the same noise your describing. Do this......with your car in park and at idle, slightly turn you wheel from left to right, just a slight ****. 1/16 of a turn. Increase the pace from left to right, then slow down the pace. You should feel a bump in the steering wheel almost like something is tapping it. If so, have your inner and outer tie rods checked. Actually, have the steering gear checked also for leaks and wear.
