My car sounds like a bell "ka-boing"

from your description of the damage it sounds like a metal reinforcement got loose (it helps the flat pice of metal such as the hood or trunk lid keep its shape and not flex) though it would help a lot to know year make and model of your car. is the dent only on the impact side of the trunk or did it form a bump on the side that didnt have direct impact, have you tried to pull the dent out? - that also puts tension on the metal and will make a noise. basically if you want to get a better answer let me know about your car and what has been done to it after the damage.

My car sounds like a bell!

I would suggest checking to see if you bent the exhaust when it hit the pole. The 1992 camaro has very little room for the exhaust system to run over the rear axle to start with it would not take much to make it hit under the car

Car stalls while driving.. starts right up but shuts off i start it hit the gas and engine tries to rev up but hesites alot then shuts off

Ford vehicles have an auto shut-down switch. The switch is in the trunk. If a Ford is hit with enough force or if the car rolls over in an accident, the switch is triggered and it shuts off the vehicle. This is to prevent fuel from continuing to flow to the engine, possibly causing a fire. If you were hit in the rear and the car will not start, look for the shut-down switch in the trunk. It is usually on the driver's side under the carpet.

Check your U-joints, all suspension bushings, driveshaft, stabilizer bar. Has the vehicle ever been involved in a accident, hard curb hits, extreme driving, off roading??

Although alloy wheels are softer than steel, chrome and aluminum wheels, there are no reports to confirm they should not or cannot be used. wheels are dented due to impacts such as hitting a curb or getting in an accident.

2003 chevy s10 2wd- shop had replaced leaf springs because one broke due to an accident. frame ok alignment not much needed.. after driving a week rear end got loud on acceleration. now rear end...

These are most likely part of the accident damage. While you are fixing this double check to make sure that the axle on the side that was hit isn't bent as well. Also check the axle tubes from the differential to make sure they aren't bent either. An accident that had enough force to break a spring and bend a driveshaft is strong enough to bend the other parts as well. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Check the axle and tubes carefully and be sure. Hope this helps.

Whenever i hit a bump large or small on the right front of the car the stering wheel shakes and sometimes pulls hard to the right what could cause that?

Check you suspension/steering components. Something is damaged or worn out. Any minor (or major) accidents recently? Big pot hole, slid off the road, went over a curb, etc? Something may be damaged from one of these incidents. Are you the only one to drive the Murano? I ask, because I have seen people swear that they never had an minor mishaps, only to discover Jr. took the car out off-roading, and bent the heck out of the lower control arm when he hit a rock. No damage evident until it was checked for alignment, which was way out of whack. Drive the car up on ramps and look very closely for any scrapes, dents, bends, etc. It is most likely a suspension component that needs to be replaced. Let me know what you find. Good luck!
