Thanks for reply found that one or the boots isnt secured properly with correct clip.so when car is driven a lot the boot comes away and leaks oil.check your boots again.

I get that too. Also thought it was the boots. Have yu checked under the engine? It might be an issue with your gearbox leaking oil. I haven't found my exact problem yet.

worst case scenario is that you have to replace each and every sensor, over $1000 dollars, but typically its $200 or less to fix. Best place to go is the dealer service shop, next best is your nearest repair shop.

Hi my Hyundai Accent makes a clunk noise sometimes when going round a corner. It's not every time. Any ideas? It has just passed it's MOT last month and it wasn't doing it before the MOT.


If it makes a clunk-clunk-clunk sound while turning, it's your front CV joint that's bad. Check to see if the front CV rubber boot is ripped/torn, on either side of the car. The CV boots are located inside/behind the wheels, where the drive axle hooks up to the wheel. If damaged, you will probably have to replace the entire CV axle.

Try diesel fuel additive like LUBRO-MOLY. Mix in full tank of diesel and run it till you cleaned out the intake track.

Hi i have a whing noise coming from front passanger side wheel when turning right, i have a 2006 56reg vw caddy van (2.0 sdi) wot cud be the problem


Usually when this happens it tells the tech that the left outer CV Joint is starting to dry up from lose of grease. The rubber boot could be torn and spitting out grease. When you turn right, most of the car's weight is tranfered to the left wheel. The same thing happens when you turn left, the weight is transfered to the right wheel. Lift it up and inspect the Constant Velocity Joints inner and outter rubber boots for leakage or tearing, there are two each axle. Most of the time it would only need a new boot and repacked with high temp grease.

Disabling faulty abs breaks. Will car still pass mot?


If there is only one sensor faulty you should be able to replace that one.If for any reason one abs wheel sensor cannot connect to the abs system reader it stopes working.It means your brakes working just as fine but the Anti Block System is not functioning anymore.Your car will certainly pass the mot without ABS.
