Question about Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

I drive a 1998 Lincoln Continental. I replaced the CV joints and wheel bearings on the front in October 2010 (it's front wheel drive). During the past two days, my car has started making a really loud clunking noise when I turn right or hit bumps. It feels and sounds like I'm hitting a curb when it happens. It seems like it is coming from the rear right side of the car. A lot of forums have suggested that it's my CV joint, but since I just had those replaced and since it's coming from the back, I'm not sure that makes any sense. What else would you suggest checking?

Grinding noise when turning wheel


I have heard a lot of dry outer tie rod ends and ball joints causing this problem. Ford used non greasable front end parts in those years.Could also be in the strut mounts. Get a second opinion. If it makes the noise sitting still it should be easy to find with stethascope or chassi ear.

My left front tire makes a rubbing or grinding noise when I drive. When I turn the wheel either way it also rumbles and bangs. What is causing this?


You could have a bad wheel bearing or a bad CV joint. Inspect your CV joint by turning the wheel all the way to the left and inspect the rubber boot for any signs of damage and see if there is any play by grabbing the CV joint and try to move it.
The other way to check is to drive the van slowly in an empty parking lot turning the wheel to one side and then the other. Listen for any abnormal noise and see if you can feel anything lose through you steering wheel.
If there is any signs of damage to the CV joint like oil leaking or movement. Replace the CV joint as soon as possible, and try not to drive the van till you have the CV joint replaced or the wheel bearing. Total CV joint failure will cause you to have the van towed to have it replaced. Try to drive it to the Garage to save you the tow cost.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

When driving around corners the front end makes a wroubbling sound. on the straigth aways the sound gone. is it the CV joints? wheel bearings? U joints? or what should I be looking for? 98 Ford Escort zx2...


Does it happen turning in both direrctions? It could be cv joints. from a standstill,turn the wheel hard to the right and accelerate in a circle. do the same on a left turn. If you hear a clicking sound, it's bad cv joints. inspect the rubber boot for tears & stress cracks. once the grease escapes,the joint is no good

hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds as if you may have waited to long to have your cv joint replaced and now it has possibly caused some internal damge that may even have affected your transmission, but all hope isnt lost, try and have the vehicle twoed to a shop you trust and have them take the joint out and check for what type of damages anwhat the repair cost would be

Severe bearing noise from front wheel bearing/cv joint area.Cv joint still lubricated,I tend to think axle support bearing is dry & on the way out,but only assuming.How does front wheel bearing come out of...


you have to replace bearing and hub as a unit.you have to remove remove brakes and caliper rotor set them aside dont disconnect brake line. get a piece of clothes rack wire to hold brake caliper .do not let it hang by brake hose. you got to remove hub nut. best way to do that is loosen it a litttle while tire still on weight of car keep wheel from turning .
