Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado

2 Answers

At first I thought my cv joint was going bad on my 2000 Silverado (classic popping sound) then I turned down my stereo and realized it was coming from the rear drivers side. When I pump the breaks it will stop. This is driving forward or turning. Can anyone assist?

First thing to verify (since its hard to isolate these sounds without using this little trick), turn off
stereo and while driving forward or turning stick an ear (or two) out the driver's window and
make sure the sound is coming from the rear diver's side.

Assuming that the sound is coming from the rear driver's side, you'll suspect the rear
suspension components: rear ball joints, shock mounts (upper & lower), trailing arm. The only
way to check
your rear suspension components is to jack up vehicle, remove L rear tire, and look for
anything loose, or missing a bolt or a nut (this happens more often than you'd ever
guess - they vibrate loose).
Also: axle shaft bearing - worn/damaged/dry. Replace or lubricate (if dry).

1999 Pontiac Grand Am loud popping noise from front end drivers?

Hey there Chris.

Without actually being there to hear it for myself, I'm going to 'spitball guess' and say it's a good possibility a CV joint is, or has gone bad.

The drive, or CV axles have rubber accordion looking boots on each end of the shaft. One out by the wheel (likely suspect) and one by the the transmission (transaxle).

If the boot gets ripped or damaged it will allow the grease from inside to escape and dirt and water to get inside. Thus ruining the CV joint.

I'm NOT saying for sure this is the problem.

You can check if the boots are damaged or if it looks like grease it splattered from the boot. If it is, at the very least the boot and joint will need replaced.

Actually it's probably going to be less expensive and easier to replace the entire CV shaft rather than installing a single joint and boot.

The 'popping' sound from a CV joint USUALLY shows up when accelerating while the front wheels are turned. That's not always the case, but is pretty common.

The other possibility is the 'popping' is a lower ball joint or a bad upper strut mount.

If the 'pop' happens when hitting a bump then those would be more suspect than the CV joint.

IF that's the case then you may be able to simply bounce that corner of the car to try to make the 'pop' happen while sitting still.

If you can do that then you should be able to detect where the sound is coming from.

Hopes this helps.

Bad cv joint symptoms noise

Need more info. CV joints when they go bad make a noise when turning. Sound like a crunching sound. Easy way to check is to simple part the car, turn the wheel all the way to one side and look at the boots. If they have a tear or show signs of leaking, you could have a bad one.

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Sounds like you have a bad CV joint. Roll down your windows and drive the vehicle slowly while turning to the left and right. If you hear clicking coming from your drivers side then your CV joint bearings are worn. Replace the CV arm.

Front end popping when stopping at slow speeds

Check the cv joints behind each front tire. See if they are torn. Really inspect then. I there is a little crack the dirt can ruin them. Check your brakes and make sure they are not worn down to the indicator.

Popping and grinding noise coming from the right front tire.

it depends if you have 2WD or 4WD, probably either your CV joints, or your wheel bearing, also have your upper and lower ball joints looked at, durangos are bad for those going out. 4WD could have additional problems, like transfer case, front axle bent, and other 4WD probs. i had a similar problem and it was my wheel bearing. buy it offline, not at the parts store, it saved me $140. compared to O'riely Auto Parts.
