If it's rear wheel drive, it could be the universal joint in the driveline, or the braking system or bearing making noise.

It sounds as if the exhaust system has a broken hanger that is allowing the exhaust to hit the chassis or other are under the vehicle. With the engine cool, and making sure the exhaust is not hot, get under the vehicle and shake the exhaust to simulate the noise. While under the vehicle, also check for possible loose suspension components.

I don't think this will work. Your car is all wheel drive and power is distributed to all 4 wheels, with most of the power going to the front. If you remove the front axles the entire system is broken and your car won't move.

You have to take off the cover on the rear end. With the vehicle on jack stands you will need to take off both rear tires and brake drums. With the vehicle in neutral you will need to turn the ring gear around until you can get to the bolt that holds the spider gear pin in. Take the bolt out and carefully remove the pin, watch were all the parts come from so you can re-install them in the right position. Sometimes you have to sort of roll the spider gears out of the axle gears. nce you have the gears out you can push the drive axles in slightly and remove the clips on the axle gears. You can then push the axles out, I cannot remember if you have to take anything apart on the brakes to get the axles past them. Look at it closely before forcing them out. Unbolt the carrier bolts (4) of them and carefully remove the carrier, make sure you mark where the spacers come from. I hope this may help you out.

1991 luminA 3.1 3 /speed automatic tranny---No


the CV joint in one of the front axles could have let go. if you had a clicking noise while turning prior to the incident.that could be your problem. A way see if the axle is the problem, grab the axles (with the car in neutral with the parking break set) and try to turn them by hand.(one at a time). they should not turn or wiggle around alot. If one or both dose that is your problem.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
