Question about Nissan Altima

1 Answer

The front right passenger wheel makes a thumping noise as if I have a bad strut. Ive had the struts replaced and Ive had them inspected by three different mechanics its fine according to them. I notice a vibration noise from that same side as the car picks up speed and when I put it 3rd gear the vibration noise is continuous I have reason to believe its possibly the wheel bearing?

1998 dodge durango loud thumping noise front passenger tire looks crooked


A suspension part has come loose or is worn out. Check the top strut mounts under the hood. There may be a rubber plug to remove to see the top mounting plate. The three nuts around the perimeter of the strut plate are the mounting nuts, not the larger center nut-leave that one alone-it is for keeping the strut from coming apart.
If that mount is good, check for a broken coil spring around the strut.
Keep looking for the problem. If the tire leans out that bad, you should be able to spot the problem. Raise the wheel off the ground (recommend jack stands or blocks so it won't slip off the jack), grasp the wheel and shake it back and forth while watching for looseness or noise on the suspension parts connecting to the wheel hub at top and bottom- the upper and lower control arms and the strut connection.
Good luck.

Turning the steering wheel right or left I hear a thumping or popping noise


This could be alot of differant things and is hard to narrow down. First I would check the wheel bearings. If those arent bad then I would next check the struts, more so the strut bearings, wich tend to go bad before the struts.

Right wheel makes bumping sound


Ford has a technical service bulletin out on this vehicle that may help solve your problem. The number is 04-6-1.
Here is the info:

ISSUE: Some 2000-2004 Focus vehicles may exhibit a front end creaking, crunching, grinding and/or rattling noise from the front suspension while driving at slow speeds, over bumps, and/or while turning.
ACTION: Noise, vibration, harness (NVH) conditions may originate from many areas. A thorough inspection of the front suspension is necessary to determine the cause. To service, refer to the following Service Procedure and inspect the suggested areas first.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Inspect front strut fasteners and confirm that they are tightened to the correct torque.
    1. Front strut to front knuckle, (one (1) driver / one (1) passenger), 90 N-m (67 lb-ft).
    2. Front strut mount to body, (three (3) driver / three (3) passenger), 30 N-m (22 lb-ft).
    3. Front strut rod to strut mount, (one (1) driver / one (1) passenger), 66 N-m (49 lb-ft). NOTE: MEASUREMENT OF TORQUE MUST BE DONE IN THE TIGHTENING DIRECTION. NOTE: IN ORDER TO APPLY THE PROPER TORQUE TO THE FRONT STRUT ROD TO STRUT MOUNT FASTENER, A HEX KEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO HOLD THE STRUT ROD IN PLACE WHILE TIGHTENING THE NUT.
  2. Inspect for loose stabilizer bar end links.
    1. Firmly grasp the links and shake them - both along the direction of the link and transverse to the link orientation in the inboard/outboard vehicle direction. If looseness is felt continue on to Step 2b, if no looseness is felt continue on to Step 3.
    2. Inspect the link end joints. If they do not appear severely corroded, torque the nuts (use anti-rotation feature to prevent ball joint damage) to 50 N-m (36 lb-ft), and repeat Step 2a. If links still feel loose after tightening or if the joint shows evidence of severe corrosion, replace the link (YS4Z-5K484-AA).
  3. Inspect for the top spring sleeve coming out of position. This may cause a squeaking noise between the sleeve and indent on the ridge of the upper spring seat, or it may cause a clicking noise between the spring and upper spring seat if the sleeve is completely out of position. If the sleeve is out of position continue on to Step 3a, if the sleeve is positioned properly continue on to Step 4.
    1. Install a new rubber sleeve (1S4Z-8484-AA). Install the new rubber sleeve starting from the top of the spring coil where it contacts the spring plate.
  4. If the noise is a clicking or popping from the front strut, install a service spring end cap (4S4Z-5L302-AA) on to the top spring tip. Reassemble and reinstall strut per the Workshop Manual Section 204-01.

Coould be your ball joint. One way to check to see if it is the bearings is to jack the car and grab hold of the tire and give it a twisting motion, one hand on the top of the tire and one hand at the bottom...push/pull type method. You should have almost no play in it whatsoever. Inspect your ball joints. Look for torn boots....means no grease.

If you replaced only one strut, it would be advisable to take the car in for a front end alignment.

Let us know what you find.
