    Yes, but don't want anymore negative feed back like "thanks for trying"

    How is that negative?? I believe the key word in that phrase is thanks and that is what I was trying to say.

    point taken.

    Here is a more detailed description of my problem. .

    I can only describe it as a rotational type of knocking like something is loose. If I swerve side to side the noise goes away? You can't hear it when you are under load. Only hear it when you back off the gas and it doesn't matter if I shift into neutral (while coasting) the noise is still there. I tried driving in reverse and then coasting in neutral in noise at all?

    I had the outer axle joint replaced but did not help.

  • jason386 Aug 21, 2008

    I haven't . Is there a way I can check it myself? My mechanic who is a great guy and have used for years replaced the left axle joint hoping that it was the problem. Is the locking hub part of the axle assembly and would he have had to take it apart to put the left axle joint on?

    I am worried it could be something in the transaxle what do you think?

    Yes, but don't want anymore negative feed back like "thanks for trying" This is a free site, all I have is your description of issue, pretty hard to diagnose from this keyboard, do you agree? Give me the best description you can, make it detailed, the more info I have the better chance of giving you an answer.

If it lowers my % then it is negative, I tried to be helpful, so why not rate it as that, that is nuetral, it neither raises or lowers my % rating..

    It sure sounds like the locking hub has a broken part or was assembled wrong, have you checked that?

    You will need a detailed picture of how it goes back togeather, ask the jeep dealer for a copy of the exploded parts view, it shows the way everything fits togeather in the correct order, they cam print the page very easily and should be free.

I have a 2001 Volkswagen gti 1.8t that is making a ticking noise when the car is in idle, when I am driving the noise for away .. I recently changed the oil and oil filter and the problem is still there .....

From description you have given it could be either injectors operating as they get up in mileage they can get noisey or valve tip clearances, which could be be caused through wear or slight drop in idle RPM oil pressure

Oil pressure light

Oil pump broken, or oil sensor on control panel faulty. First option more likely, contact a mechanic and have oil pump checked, do not use the car, as you can damage the engine.
