See if higher octane would solve the problem. It could be a timing issue or just a dirty sensor. If you can have these checked then the better. Some shops would let you borrow their diagnostic tool to see if there are error codes saved in the computer.

If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?


cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

Can turning steering wheel side to side at full lock while stationary stretch or damage cv joints. I was told by one source that it could, but i'm not so sure? Thought they were designed to be able to do...


you could damage the cv joints over time but you will damage the power sterring pump if you hold the steering in lock ,it but strain on the pump by back feeding the presser of the pump and forces the pump presser to build up and damage pump seals

Can I just replace just one cv joint


Yes you can,I'm not sure if your refering to the whole axle or one cv joint on the axle.Replacing a cv joint is best left to a qualified mechanic,most cv joints require special tools and procedures to replace correctly.

Front end popping when stopping at slow speeds


Check the cv joints behind each front tire. See if they are torn. Really inspect then. I there is a little crack the dirt can ruin them. Check your brakes and make sure they are not worn down to the indicator.

CV Joint Axle Replacement - How to Repair or Replace

Over time the rubber boots of the CV joints can become cracked, torn, or otherwise compromised. Once moisture and dirt get into a CV joint and grease makes its way out, the CV joints days are numbered. Signs of impending failures are a click-click-clicking or metallic crackling noise while turning and accelerating or a clunking upon deceleration. While one can repack, reboot, and rebuild CV axles, it makes more sense for the average do-it-yourselfer to procure replacement units and swap out the old axles. If a boot is torn or missing, it is possible to save the joint if caught early enough, but usually the damage has already been done. Replacing or servicing the entire CV joint axle assembly may be the smarter move since replacing a boot may involve removing an axle, which may also involve removing half or all of the vehicle's brakes and suspension.

Cluking sound after high speed driving


it sure sounds like a cv joint. did he take apart the cv joint? ive had some that just drove me nuts. couldnt get them to make noise when off the ground. we ended up putting in a half shaft and cured the problem after a very long day. i dont like throwing parts at a problem but this was the only way we found this one.
