2002 gti front noise ...

There is a noise coming from the front left. It goes away under load but
when you take your foot off the gas you can hear it. It is a knocking sound
like something is loose. Just had the Loft Axle Joint replaced but that was
not it?

You will need to replace the CV joint at that wheel.

Clicking noise goes away when braking


Look at the constant velocity joints on that side. When the rubber boot tears it lets road dirt in which fouls the grease and allows premature wear on the cv joint components.

Pound ticking noise when my 99 durango starts goes away after the engine warms up


The ticking noise could be a faulty hydrulic valve lifter. When last was the oil & filter changed, it coul be that the oil is thick and not going through to the lifters and when it warms up the oil is thin. It could be that the engine is need of an overhaul as 148.000 miles is 238.182 Kilometers and that is a hi milage.

Makes clicking noise while under load.


Sounds like you have a defective universal joint or constant velocity joint in the drive line.

Noise like wheelbearing up to 55mph jacked up car and spun wheels but can hear no noise


if noise goes away at 55 not bearings, check for tire cupping. Move tires front to rear or side to side and see if noise moves. You will not detect bearing noise when jacked up with no load on bearing.

Clicking noise coming from the Engine and car shakes when stoppin


Probably a disc brake pad scraping on a warped rotor as it goes around. When you apply the brakes the warped rotor causes the car to pulse or shake as the rotor goes around and applies the brake unevenly. You need a front brake job.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

Grinding noise coming from under driver floor board


You have a u-joint in the rear drive shaft that is no good..Look under the truck at every one and look for rust next to the caps..Also look at the mid shift bearing that is in the center of the rear drive shaft.It is bolted to the frame and the drive shaft goes through the center of it..Hope this helps you and that is almost 100% the problem I promise..Have a great night....

Moaning sound in front end


Try rotating tires. If it gets better or worse, its probably the tires.
