'84 Porsche 944. Are the CV joints bad?


Any CV joint that knocks while driving straight will be dangerously worn out. Most Cv joints make noise on sharp corners. This vehicle should be a rear wheel drive and if equipped with Cv joints will be in the rear. If it knocks over rough roads/bumps I would look at stabilizer links/bushings for wear and possibly the source of your noise if you are confident it is not from the engine

Grinding noise when turning wheel


I have heard a lot of dry outer tie rod ends and ball joints causing this problem. Ford used non greasable front end parts in those years.Could also be in the strut mounts. Get a second opinion. If it makes the noise sitting still it should be easy to find with stethascope or chassi ear.

Something knocking in a steering system on my 98 civic


Suspect worn outer cv joint. Check the boot for any tears, damage or leaking grease. If these are present your cv joint will fail soon if it hasn't already. If you put the car into reverse and turn the wheels to a hard lock a bad cv joint will make a popping grinding type sound. Try left and right turns when doing this test.

Front grinding/rubbing sound when accelerating


if you slide under the truck and try moving the cv with your hands and there is any looseness in joint or noise the joint is indeed worn out, the cv joint if bad should not stop the truck from shifting into 4 wheel drive it could be stuck in 4wd and this would cause cv joints to break, if u have access to lift get all tires in air and try2 vs 4 drive and see if tires turn if not lift front tires off ground tires should turn freelyin 2wd, as u turn tires listen to wheel bearing and shaft noises for grinding clunking indicating bad parts, simple tricks that may help u find problems for cheap good luck!!

Grinding noises when 4x4 is engaged


Most likely wheel bearing or cv joint issue. look for a ripped open cv boot. I believe that year used cv joints instead of regular u-joints. Hope I helped. Thanks
