Question about Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

The car pulls to the left even though the dealership says it is aligned. There is a popping clanking noise in the ft end that sounds like the ft end is going to fall out. I bought it with 33,000 mile on it and the day after I bought it I took it back to the shop. They did an alignment,new tires, nes seal in the steering coloum and said that GM said it was ok for the stutts to "seep a little" I have had the car 6-12-08 and have driven it for only 5 days since I bought it.

Grinding/rubbing noise after transmission bearing repair. made a popping noise while driving at normal speed. starting making banging noise. gets louder the faster you go. changes gears fine though.

an educated guess would be that the flex plate isn't on correctly , id get it back to repair place , if flex plate is it and it falls off or breaks then input shaft will break as well !!

Front end popping noise

There are so many possibilities. It's difficult to even attempt a guess.but... Axles, ball joints, brake calipers, rotors, sway bar ends/bushings, rack and pinion,tie rod ends, A-arms, shocks, struts, springs, mounts and even a cracked or broken frame! Hope this was helpful!

Air conditioner does not work

My wife 2003 Honda CRV did the same thing about 3 years ago with about 70k miles on the clock. Anyway, hot summer day, blowing hot air. I took the car to the dealership, they replaced the whole system under warranty even though the car was way past warranty period. Apparently, the AC system was defective, Honda will replace them on as-needed basis instead of recalling all of them. I was suprised they did all that for free. Try the dealership first. Good luck..

I think the front-right CV joint may be going out on my 2003 Solara SLE (it makes a funny noise when I turn the car while I am driving, but not from a complete stop). What would be the least expensive...

If it is the CV joint (and it does sound like it is), the least expensive option will be to replace the CV joint. This is really the only solution available, but the popping or funny noises can also indicate other worn parts such as struts, shocks, tire rod ends, and even the rack and pinion in your steering system. I would check all of this before going through the aggravation of replacing the CV joint.

2003 Toyota Corolla Wheel Alignment

The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.
