Question about 2005 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

My 2005 avalon has 154,000 miles on it and I'm getting a noise from the front end, expecially when I turn sharply to the right or left. I have the tires rotated and balanced every 6,000 miles. Would this be struts? Brakes? What about wheel bearings?

Sounds like it could be wheel bearings but I'm surprised that when they rotate the tires they didn't catch this.

The next time you have your tires rotated ask to have the jacked up front end tested for loose front end parts. They can shake it down physically looking for play in the ball joints, tie rod ends, and bearings.

Struts generally wear out and cause a bouncy front end conditioin. Brakes, if properly assembled, won't make any additional noise when turning left or right.

Good luck on this.

SEVERE vibration in front end when accl. it stops when i back off accl.why and what?


I assume this is a front wheel drive vehicle? It sounds like a cv axle shaft might be going bad. When you turn your steering wheel sharply to the right or left and move forward, do you get a clicking type noise?

What is the firing orde on a 2005 3.0 toyota avalon


The firing order is very simple. Standing at the front of the car looking at the engine, #1 plug is the left rear. #2 is the left front, #3 is the middle rear, #4 is the middle front, #5 is the right rear and #6 is the right front. Most all Toyota's with a side mounted engine follow this pattern.

2006 Toyota aVALON radio


Replace the amplifier. Mine was making a popping/clicking noise every 2 seconds with the radio on or off and that was the only sound coming out. Unplugged the amp and the noised stopped. During this troubleshooting issue the radio did lost the ability to adjust the balance left/right & front/back. Couldn't find a repair shop to give me a straight answer on replacing the board ended up buy a used one for $250.

Clunking accelerating or turning sharply to the left.


Check the front suspension ball joints and steering joints. Check wheel bearings and adjustment. Check shock absorber mounts for condition . Check steering insert condition and top mount rubbers and bearings if McPherson strut set up.. If you have a steering shock absorber then check it's condition and mounting

The front left wheel makes a howling sound at + 50 mph. When I turn the wheel right sharply, noise stops. Tires are new. This is a half ton Dodge Ram truck.Any suggestions?


wheel bearing is the most likely source of the noise ,and turning the wheel is transfering the weight off of the bearing hence the noise stops

I have a 2005 Ford Taurus that has 121,000 miles on it, and is making a roaring sound from underneath. Tire Mechanic says it sounds like it is coming from the transmission. I have never replaced the tranny...


It sounds like a hub bearing, turn sharply (but in a safe area) and listen for a change in loudness of the noise. The opposite side of the turn will be the bad bearing (louder turning left indicates right hub bearing, turning right indicates left hub bearing). Please get that fluid changed ;-)
