Question about 2008 Hyundai Accent

Knock in the rear end

I just bought a 2008 hyundai accent four door automatic. I'm noticing a knocking sound from the rear end of the car. It happens sometimes when I break, or excellerate, and sometimes going over a bump. I thought it was something in the trunk so the removed everything from it, but the knock was still there.

The knocking sound is not continuous, and doesn't happen all the time. It usually happens going over a bump. it sounds like its coming from the trunk. Also sometimes the knock is louder than other times.

I have no idea what this could mean, or how serious it could be. the car has just over 1000km on it. So I'm wondering is this noise normal for this type of car?

    To be more accurate this is when I usually will hear this knock from the rear end. When I break to a stop. when I stop I'll hear a knock from the rear end. It doesn't happen all the time, and if I break way ahead of time and come to a slow rolling stop it never happens.

    Also if I accellerate from a stop rapidly I'll hear it sometimes. Mostly I'll hear it if I go over a bump.

What would cause a knock in my engine/transmission when I am breaking from 20 to 15mph in a 2002 hyundai santa fe?

Depends on whether it is some internal knock or external to the engine/transmission. If external you will need to have the transmission and engine mounts checked.

If it is internal and definitely originating from the engine or transmission it is impossible to say what the cause is without testing the car. Changing the fluid in the transmission will not cure a knock of the kind you have described.

Was the automatic belt tensioner replaced or even checked? if if has lost tension then the belt is loose and slip[d under a load, which you hear as a screeching noise.

If you have not found the problem yet, check the transmission interlock. Sounds like the shifter interlock switch may not be engaging to allow the starter to activate!
