u-joint or carrier bearing or exhaust. Carrier bearing would be my guess

Struts noise?


I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

I have a knocking in my passanger side tire when i turn if i turn slowly it does not make the noise what could this be ??


It could be a hub bearing, or CV joint in the axle, or a faulty tire.
You could move the tire to a different position and see if the noise moves with it.
Usually a hub bearing will make a roaring sound not a bump or knock, the CV joint can clunk as the axle turns.

There is a knocking noise coming from the rear of my 94 chevy 1500 series truck it is knocking at the speed of the tires turning and is loudest at slow speeds,what is it?


Car wheels spin at different speeds, especially when turning. When making a turn the outside tire turns faster than the inside tire since to outside tire has a longer distance to travel in the same amount of time through the turn.

Humming noise when car is moving


most likely if its a hum it could be tires , if its a roar it could be the drive train

support the vehicle on jack stands , start the engine , put in drive and let it idle, if noise is gone ...its the tires if not check the drive train ...start with fluid levels

I was driving today and it sounded like I blew my tire (but I didn't, they look just fine.) It was making this weird whirring sound and then it was squealing and soon after it felt like my back right tire...


Sounds like a CV joint or outer wheel bearing assembly. Jack the right side up & remove the tire. Block the car so it doesn't roll away. Put emergency brake on & put car in neutral. Try to move the hub by rotating the spindle & listen to any noise. See if there is any up & down movement in th CV joint. Replace any worn parts. Good luck!

Clanking Noise in rear end,when I start from a Dead stop,


I recommend an inspection of all universal joints or CV(constant volocity) joints, whichever apply on the vehicle! A quick inspection of the rear suspension at the same time should reveal the source of the unusual noises that you describe.
A reputable service shop will do the inspection for free or for a minimal fee.
Have a great day!

2004 volks jetta,, weird noise and slight shaking from left front tire area ,, just had all new tires put on still shaking and a knocking noise


Is the noise apparent when you are making a turn? It sounds like you may have a CV joint problem. When they put new tires on did the installer mentioned that you needed your cv boot or axle replace?
