Question about 2004 Kia Rio

2 Answers

Front suspenion. I'm getting a lot of loud creaking when going over bumps and turning corners. I know it's not the C.V. joints. I tried to lube but there are no fitings. Is there a way to lube this suspension, or does something need replacement?

This noise could be a bad ball joint or tie rod end that is dry and damaged due to no grease.have the front suspension checked for worn components or seized(tight)components.you may have to have parts replaced.if the noise just started then you could grease the components with a needle grease adapter that you can pierce the rubber boot of the joint and grease the component.

Dear,

I think the front axles have worned out due to which it makes noise while taking a turn around.

and also get the shockers checked due to which it squeeks while on move.

thanx

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning


Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

Creaking 2001 isuzu rodeo


our first creaking ever.
love that.( its haunted? LOL)


nobody can fix a car, if you can't demo it
not heard, can't fix it if it is not broken, rings true here.
when you do that, they are forced to guess, at your expense.
its an Implied GUE$$

first off you need to find out when it happens. exactly
first. (bounce car hard parked)?
only turning, only at bumps, when?
only moving, I guess
it can creak and be AOK,
for example the front stabilizer bar is mounted in rubber mounts
and will creak. and be ok. (so spray them)

why not buy a can of SILICON spray ,and spray
all things under car that moves,
all things, not the drive shafts.
there are swing arms, Arms, and many things to make noises in the the whole suspension systems.
it could be tie rods failing (bad that)spray them.
if have weeks to find it spray 1 at a time>? tedious.
any suspension shop in town knows what to do.
find one.
a real shop can use his electronic 4 channel stethoscope
and drive it and find it. but must FAIL for HIM.

see?

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer


Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.

My grandfather has a 97 Ford Crown Vic that used to do the same thing. He had the front end greased when he got an oil change and that solved the problem. So thats probably all you need.
