Common or not,you need to find the issue and repair.
You must have missed a bad CV Joint.

1997 Buick Park Avenue/Why do I hear winding, rubbing sound when turning right.


replace all the other engine mounts as the engine is still moving on turns. Check suspension as the tyre may be touching the guard on turns ( car ride height to low from sagging suspension)

When I turn my wheel all the way to the right or left the wheel locks up but I can pop it loose again why


Get the entire front suspension checked by a good mechanic. This sounds like a steering, steering rack or ball joint issue. Popping and locking damage can occur after a hard knock to the suspension or wheels. Something like hitting a high kerb, hard.

At first I thought my cv joint was going bad on my 2000 Silverado (classic popping sound) then I turned down my stereo and realized it was coming from the rear drivers side. When I pump the breaks it will...


First thing to verify (since its hard to isolate these sounds without using this little trick), turn off
stereo and while driving forward or turning stick an ear (or two) out the driver's window and
make sure the sound is coming from the rear diver's side.

Assuming that the sound is coming from the rear driver's side, you'll suspect the rear
suspension components: rear ball joints, shock mounts (upper & lower), trailing arm. The only
way to check
your rear suspension components is to jack up vehicle, remove L rear tire, and look for
anything loose, or missing a bolt or a nut (this happens more often than you'd ever
guess - they vibrate loose).
Also: axle shaft bearing - worn/damaged/dry. Replace or lubricate (if dry).

Put new starter in 96 nisson a week ago now its real hard starting (grinding,not catching) i can get it to start but something wrong does it need to be shimed thank you


If it is making the noise I think it is, the problem is with the flywheel. The teeth on the flywheel wear out and when the starter goes to engage, it doesn't quite fully engage into the flywheel teeth and a makes a loud, sharp grinding noise, like you tried to start a running engine. What you can do is remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel. Make a mark, paint dot or crayon, and turn the flywheel with a screwdriver. If there are damaged teeth, and I suspect there are, they will be very evident. If that is the case, you will need to replace the starter (new starter will likely be damaged from your efforts to start your vehicle) and flywheel.

I have a 99 Jeep cherokee and there is a popping noise when turning or backing up. I have replaced everything possible and the noise is still there


This may sound stupid but have you looked at your splash guards in your wheel wells. I had simular noises coming from one of my cars, I thought that it was the suspention, and after a while of looking around i found it was my splash guard rubbing against the tire. I was just glad I didn't take it in to a shop. LOL!
