    A definite noise in front end that turns into a whirring at 25+ miles an hour .Could be bad tires or wheel bearings.Doesn't sound like c.v. joint problem.

    I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT. At slow speed I hear a clacking sound that gets faster as I speed up. Since I have a 3 year old boy and 1 year old girl who eat up a paycheck in mere moments, I am just praying it won't cost an arm and a leg to fix.

Your wheel center-cap is most likely loose. Try to see if it spins or turns, or if there is some material inside it.
good luck!

Clicking from front passanger side wheel

continuous velocity joint going bad (CV JOINT). will need to be replaced, may go out at anytime, or may last a good while. likely reason is boot was cracked and grease was lost, so over time the joint gets heat cracked, and eventually breaks and bearings come loose leaving veh imobile (won't effect engine, wheels just won't move)

Front Axle making noise and jerking while turning

It is probally in 4 wheel drive. It is supposed to **** while turning in 4 wheel drive because all 4 tires are trying to turn at the same speed and when you turn one tire slows down and the other tire speeds up but it cant in 4 wheel drive so it skips or jerks. If there is also a clicking noise the CV joint might be going out.

My 2003 Yuckon XL is makin a ticking sound in the front left. It speeds up when I accelarate and then slows. The sound is continous when the engine is on, flucuating with speed. Thank you.

ticking with vehicle motion is generally the sign of a wheel bearing going bad. sounds like front left. if it clicks loudly when you shift from R to D or vice versa then I would have the CV joints checked. If the left is going bad, have both sides done.

Noise when making a slow speed tight turn. 1999 mercury cougar already replaced right front wheel bearing

noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.

How can i turn off the traction comes on periodically?

If the front hubs have been replaced, the problem lies in the harnesses to the wheel speed sensors. Here is a bulletin number for you, 03-05-25-008. It talks about replacing the harnesses to both front wheel speed sensors.

The traction control activates because the system thinks a wheel is slipping. If you slow down at a slow rate the abs might activate also.

My van makes clicking noise when going uphill & and sometimes the speeds slows right down and makes noise (clicking under vehicle).

Could be front CV axles making that noise. Check out the rubber cv boots going from the transmission to the center of the front wheels, If the boots are ripped or cracked, replace the cv axles on both sides.

I have a clicking sound coming from the front of my car around the wheel base. I am not certain if it is a cuff or what.

A clicking sound that speeds up or slows down with the speed you are moving might be the CV joint.
