199 Mercury Mountaineer making clunking noise when turning


Hi Jeanette, I'm glad to help!

Jeanette, usually when your turning a vehicle and it makes a clunking noise, it could be 2 things. (1) The CV Joints are bad. What is a CV Joint? If you look under the vehicle you will see a long axle coming from the transmission to the center of you wheel and on each end of that axle you'll see a rubber boot. Jeanette, behind that boot is the CV Joint and when you turn the vehicle it pivots with the wheel. When it goes bad it will make all kinds of noises and can be unsafe if it breaks while on the highway because your vehicle will stop moving. PLEASE GET THAT CHECKED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. (2) The other problem it could be is your wheel bearings, when they become loose enough they can actually bind and cause a popping or clunking noise. This can also be unsafe if they are extremely loose. PLEASE GET THAT CHECKED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Jeanette.

1997 chevy blazer,serpentine belt making noise. belt dressing doesn't seem to help,sometimes it makes the noise louder.and then after driving for a good while the noise stops.; it starts again whe i...


May be a worn belt or a pulley whose bearings are shot. Remove belt and check it for the ribs having broken down or missing parts of belt. While it's off, check all your pulleys for turning freely, alternator, tensioner pulley, a/c compressor, PS pulley...If you hear any noise when spinning them, or feel any movement like wobbling, or if they have a rough feel, then its likely that pulley needs replacing.

My 2004 mountaineer does not do anything when you try to start the car, lights and radio work. security light blinks rapidly when i try to start, but car does not even try to turn over, any suggestions


Security is set. Lock the car up. open it with the key and turn it on. this usually resets the security. If it doesn't use the key fob while its still on and unlock it.

I have a 1997 toyota rav 4 that makes a clunking noise whenever I turn the wheel. What is it?


Hi

Is it a clunk clunk clunk noise? Then you have a CV joint that needs to be replaced. This is called the CONSTANT VELOCITY JOINT, and helps you turn the wheel when it is in motion.

It has ball bearings inside and when the housing wears out, they make that clunking noise.

See your mechanic for a change and see if you can replace both wheels at the same time.
