    I have the same problem and the engine seems to be running rough when I first turn on the car. The car shakes a little.

Shaking when accelerating


Hello,

Find a large open parking lot and then do tight figure "8's" with the steering wheel all the way over locked and then listen for noises from the front wheel area with your windows down and the RADIO OFF! When doing figure 8's with the steering wheel hard over each way when your doing the figure 8 pattern will bring out the bad CV joints and they will make lots of noise. Best to get a second quote from a front end shop and compare prices. You could call a local auto parts store and ask what the CV joint and shafts cost to get an idea on the parts prices. Good luck and road test that car in a large parking lot with room to do the figure 8 pattern. Dennis

Knocking noise around the front passenger wheel area!?


Do you feel it in the steering wheel? if so it could be the intermediate steering shaft. If not it could be a sway bar link or bushing.

Steering wheel and front end shakes with knocking noise


easiest check struts for leakage or if the top nut came loose.
next Ball joints support bottom of lower control arm and try to move tire in and out on the bottom.
next check bearing plate for movement by trying to move top of tire.
last check tie rod ends by moving as in right turn left turn.
do both sides. if one side is bad replace both sides so you don't have to tie up vehicle in a couple months.

Rear end noise from front wheel drive car


At that mileage it could be, and most likely is given your description of the noise. I assume it reduces in volume as you slow down. If you can find a quite piece of road drive up to where the noise is apparent and lightly swerve from left to right. (Don't roll the car!! ) If the noise reduces as you swerve left then its the left bearing. If its when you swerve right that the noise reduces its the right bearing. If its both the only way is to jack the rear up and spin the wheels as fast as you can and listen. If there's a hint of a rumble from it, its that bearing or both. It should be completely quite apart from the slight hiss as the shoes rub on the drum.
35K may not seem much but if you don't know the history of the car it could have hit a bad pot hole or even had a knock on a kerb.
I have replaced bearing with a lot less miles than yours.

Cheers John

FRONT END


Drive the car in a parking lot and make left and right hand turns.
If the noise goes away on either turn then the problem is a front hub bearing.
If the noise is still there, it could be possible front differential bearings.

FRONT END ROTATING KNOCKING NOISE WHEN TURNING TO THE LEFT.


The noise you are hearing when you turn is most likely a CV joint in one of the transaxle shafts. Start by checking each 1\2 shaft CV boot for tears, grease slung out of it,etc. You can replace the 1/2 shaft making the noise, but you will have to determine which one it is. The easiest way to do this is to have 2 people in the car with the front windows down, and no noise interference going on, (like a big empty parking lot or something). Turn the wheel while driving and see who hears the noise the loudest. Based on my experience, (I still drive a 99 Breeze with 155,000 miles on it), it's probably going to be on the drivers side. Have you hit or run over anything recently?

Growling noise


That sounds like a wheel bearing starting to go bad. Usually you'll get a rumbling sound that will increase in volume and sometimes pitch as the speed increases. A quick way to check for wheel bearing wear is to first determine if you hear it at the front or the rear. Once you know that (or at least have an idea which end it's at), see if the noise gets louder or quieter when you turn. If you make a right turn and the noise gets louder, the problem is on the left side of the vehicle, because you're loading the suspension on that side. If you then turn left at speed and the noise goes away or quiets down, you reinforce the fact that it's on the left side because you're unloading the suspension on that side.

When you've determined as best you can which side and which end of the vehicle the noise is on, you'll know which wheel to check. Jack up that corner of the vehicle, and grab the tire at the top and bottom. See if you can get it to move at all by shaking it. A good wheel bearing will allow no play whatsoever. If the bearing is going bad, you may see that you can "shake" the wheel while it's mounted on the hub.

If you have a hard time determining which wheel it is, jack up each corner and shake each wheel in turn and see if any of them shake while mounted on the truck. If you find one that does, you're most likely looking at replacing a wheel bearing.

Try this out and post up what you find, and we can take it from there.
