Most dryers suspend the drum on felt glides, nylon glides and rubber tired rollers, if these are worn or locked up, there are regular clunk noises.

I have a 5 speed wen i come off the cluch and get up to high rpm it fill like my trans is sliping


The clutch is probably worn out and slipping and needs to be replaced. With a manual transmission, if the engine revs and the car doesn't accelerate at the same pace, the clutch is slipping. This usually gets very very worse almost instantly. The clunking could be related or it could be an unrelated problem you're just noticing now that you have a slipping clutch. Has the car recently made clicking noises while turning sharp corners or in reverse? If yes, maybe a bad CV joint. If you don't have the technical aptitude to remove the transmission and replace the clutch, I suggest taking it to a shop to have them check into it. Clutches are a wear item and go bad around 90,000 miles of use.

Creak, cluck, or light clunk noise coming from front passenger end during acceleration from a stop or slow speed.


It is hard to tell, without checking it. Iti could be the universal joint or CV, whatever you have, show it to a mechanic.

Sounds like the battery is too low to start the car. The clicking noise sounds like it could be the starter relay. There is enough voltage to cause it too cluck but not enough amperage to turn over the started. They need a lot of amps. If you can, try putting a charger on the battery overnight to see if that helps. Just because you have 12 volts in the battery does not mean you will have enough starting amperage. Hope this helps you...

"I hear and feel "Clucking noises when I drive me


If it is clucking then someone has hidden some chickens in your trunk, open it and let them out. If it is clunking then I would suspect rubber bushings on any of the several suspension components have reached the end of their life and metal is banging into metal as the suspension moves up and down.
You need to take it to an alignment shop and have them give you a list of what is worn out. Consider replacing those parts and getting it aligned. If the clunking is reserved only to times when you shift from D to R and back, then I would suspect U joints and CV joints in the axles. If it is reserved to times when you are turning, check the CV joints and wheel bearings. Everything on the car is 14 years old and each part will eventually fail from use and age.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.

When turning it makes loud noises and is harder to turn, but there seems to be enough fluid in container.


Does it make a clunking noise when turning? How about a continuous clicking noise when turning? That would be tie rod end if clunking, or cv shaft (ball bearings) if continual clicking when turning. Sometimes turning very sharply can put to much pressure on the power steering pump and strain on the belt when turning. Do check your steering linkage and make sure nothing is rubbing against the tire when turning.
