Sounds like either a motor mount is out or got play in the drivetrain. pop the hood and while in park push and pull the car to see how much movement you get with the engine. if it is a motor mount youll see alot of movement if it is tight and still hear a bang it is in the drivetrain.

IE.... axles/transmission.

    sorry i wanted to add . the clicking noise is from a CV in the axle going out.best way to check is look at the boots if they are torn replace them asap.motor mounts can wear out a halfshaft.

I hear a bang when i take my foot off gas coming to atop and also hear a bang when i give it gas this happens like 75%of the time


problem most likely not in the diff but in the diff mounting and suspension points
a noise on acceleration or deceleration indicates that the diff housing is free to react to the load being applied and that is mounting bushes , broken mounting plates or other suspension problems
consider this to see if it fits
when you accelerate the reaction of the diff is to roll upwards as the wheels have traction but when under brakes ( deceleration ) the diff rolls forward
hence the bangs in both directions
suggest that you change mechanics and take it to a specialist shop that deals in your make of vehicle for a proper under body inspection of mounts , rubbers, pins and chassis mounting points
another issue her and that si the engine reacts the same way so check engine mounts and reaction rod bushes

Banging noise when you drive


This is a hard problem to describe, I know, and I will toss out a few possibilities. If the noise occurs when the car is accelerating, it can be motor mounts, or carriage mounts on front-wheel drive vehicles. Transmissions can bang into gear. Drive shaft u-joints can bang before they fail. C-V joints in front wheel or 4 wheel drive units can bang when worn out.

The exhaust system can break loose and bang on the frame. Brake calipers can rock in their mounts and transmit sound. Tie-rod ends can make a knocking noise on every bump you hit. There were recalls on gas tank straps for some Ford made units, so a loose gas tank can bang.

1999 audi a4 1.8t quattro transmission problem


First try turning key on but dont start engine...... depress accelerator pedal to the floor slowly 3x . May put it back in learning mode, if not then check the multifunction switch on tranny or speed sensor to see if it got damaged

Loud bang coming from front end when i turn the steering


If it happens when you turn while driving, it could be a broken sway bar link. Try to hear if it's coming from the pass. or driver side and check underneath next to the wheel (or just check both). Can be hard to spot sometimes but usually is hanging by one end with hardware missing. Cheap to replace, quick to fix.

1996 Volvo 960 has shifting problem. Took to Trans shop and they think something is wrong with motor. When shifting from 1 to 2 it seems like the tranny is slipping or dropping down then back up quick...


Check the catalytic converter. You can do this by banging on it and listen for a rattle. Sometimes, the inside gets melted into a little ball and blocks the exhaust from getting out on acceleration. This will cause a serious loss of power and feel like a trans malfunction.

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.
