Question about 1994 Volvo 850

1 Answer

Noise I have recently replaced the drive shafts and a worn wishbone to try and stop the noise when cornering. It seems to get less when on left hand lock and a lot worse when on r/h.

    The noise was there before I replaced the drive shafts and the wishbone. I replaced both these items to try and stop the drumming noise. It sounds almost as if a wheel bearing is breaking up but I've so far had difficulty in pin pointing the source.

I have an intermittant grinding on the front of my 2000 Kia when I go over bumps. the wheel bearings were already replaced because of this, but the grinding continues.


It seems as though you have changed everything.

A grinding noise is associated with something turning or rubbing against something. The only other thing that springs to mind are the drive shafts, which have splined ends. The link below will show you generic images of driveshafts
kia drive joints Google Search

Each end of the drive shaft is splined. One end fits into the gearbox and the other end attaches to the road hub of the road wheel.

It's usually the hub (universal joint that allows the wheel to turn)/ wheel end of the drive shaft that wears. It may be that the grinding noise has been more pronounced when turning? And the grinding noise is coming from just one side?

A new drive shaft isn't cheap although second hand ones are readily available. replacing a driveshaft isn't a particularly difficult job.

However, it may be an idea to get somebody to remove the brake calliper/rotor/ driveshaft hub and inspect the hub/splined end of the drivehaft. What you're looking for is worn, broken or chipped splines. If all seems okay try cleaning and repacking with driveshaft grease. It's probably the hub - the bit that allows the wheel to turn - as opposed to the splines -there's bearings inside that hub (also known as a universal joint). There's no real way of examining that hub other than replacing the driveshaft

My car makes a clunk, clunk noise when I am backing up and have the wheel turned and when I am driving and have to make a sudden sharp stop.


You either have a suspension problem like a ball joint, or you may have a worn CV joint in either the left or right drive shaft. Does the noise seem dominant on one side or the other? If so, that is where you want to look. Check the rubber boots on both ends of the drive axles to see if there is any leaking or cracks.

Metallic clicking noise from wheel area when turning left.


This noise sounds like one of the constant velocity joints in the half shaft. The joint is probably dry or worn out and needs to be replaced.

Hi, when i'm coming off the third and the second gear mainly the 2nd gear it makes a clanking noise


My first thought here is your drive shaft u joints, but only because I've been stranded more than once by these. The higher torque of second will definitely make a worn u-joint "clunk". with the window down listen carefully as you engage and release your clutch in 1st gear, if you here any "clunking" noise I would check your u-joints. To do this SAFELY;ie, using jack stand etc. get under your car and try to turn the drive shaft by hand with the car in gear. ANY play in the drive shaft is bad. I'm not sure if you meant you've changed your clutch and the pressure plate or you did change out you flywheel. either way whichever you did not change could definitely be warped.

I get a squeal and a tss-tss-tss noise when i turn left, any ideas. belts seem fine, no trouble turning right.


your drive shaft is worn in the coupling and only way is to replace it ,you can just replace the joint on the end of the shaft as its not difficult for the average sunday mechanic ,but what i often do here is check the drive rubber boot and if its split then remove the joint from end of shaft and then take all the balls out and then wash in diesel then re-assemble with grease and often the noise stops if it doesnt then depends on the customer if they are willing to pay for a new one ,most do not as the noise isnt a problem where the pocket is concerned

I have a 99 jeep cherokee sport. When making a sharp turn to the left I hear a rubbing sound coming from the left front tire area. There is currently a light squealing noise when stopping. Are the two...


Probably. Check your brake rotor and caliper. The brake pads may be worn down enough to make that noise. Brake pads are around $29 bucks for a set. And rotors are about the same each at Autozone. I just did mine recently and I am VERY happy now that my 99 Jeep cherokee stops right and doesn't make the rubbing noise when cornering, and the squealing noise when stopping. There you go! Happy Motoring!

Knocking trom font of car when....


sounds like a cv axle noise i have found you cant change inner without outer, for the time spent you should replace the axle as a whole,,much easier too. front wheel drive cars are hard on front end bushings and etc. the coil springs seem to sqirm in there saddles when they get old too making creaking noises, no big deal on ford escort, tempo, topaz, sable,,,,,
