Aveo noise when turning and breaking

The thing is that the car makes the noise when: 1- braking but when the car is almost stopping like: Clunk, clunk, clunk clunk... 2- and when turning curious that does not makes any sound at high speeds, but i dont run the because im afraid it could get worse. i went to a mechanic and he "adjust" the tie rod ends, ball joint, and sway bar link. after he fix those things the car got better, but a day after he "adjust the parts" the noise began. I was thinking to buy the control arm of bought sides and the tie rod ends too... please, hope you can help me....

Sounds like the wheel nuts are not fully tightened on the wheels.I would check that first.Some shops use a "torque" bar when tightening wheels which can result in loose wheel nuts due to rusty/tight/damaged wheel stud threads creating a false torque reading and loose wheel nuts.

Normally the axle does have some end play. A bad bearing usually will give you rumbling noise and have up and down play if it's bad enough.Normally the seal will leak as well. Before you begin taking everything apart, get under there and put your hand on the axle tube nearest the brakes and try to feel where the noise is coming from while someone moves the bed. Listen carefully as well and check anything and everything for movement. The "hand on it" method will allow you to feel as well as hear the shift. I'm almost betting it's not the bearing.

You are on the right track. You may have overtightened the tie rods or the sway bar links. Whenever you do this much front-end work, you should always get the front-end re-aligned. The front-end mechanic will probably find and fix this as a normal part of the re-alignment at no extra cost.

A Ball Joint Can Usually Be Replaced Without Removing The Control Arm From The Vehicle. Place The Vehicle On Jack Stands. Remove The Shock Absorber And Install A Spring Compressor on The Coil Spring.Remove The Nut Securing The Ball Joint To The steering Knuckle And Separate The Knuckle And Then Joint. The Ball Joint Should Be Pressed,Riveted,Bolted,Or Screwed Into The Control Arm.A Service Manual Will Give The Details For The Specific Make And Model Vehicle.

Front end clunking noise

Take the brakes apart & clean up all rust,check everything out
& lube things when putting back together
Have to do that at least once a year

Don't need machining every year or new pads, but have to knock
down the edge on the rotors & get rid of rust & lube (anti-seize on
everything but inside the caliper slide bolts, there you use the synthetic caliper lube

The clunk could be worn drive axle joints or drive shaft joints
or shocks
When your on the brakes or hit bumps your loading things differently & the clunk goes away

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

Aveo noise when turning and breaking

sounds like axle shafts.. when they did the ball joints they probably let the lower control arms drop, they should have been supported.. which probably stressed out the shafts

i dont know if i would go to that same mechanic, maybe ask a few friends who they use and trust.. its such a 'rookie' mistake (if it turns out to be the shafts) that my guess would be that they were just thinking of job security.. just more work for them

good luck!

I hear a loud clunking noise coming from the rear of the truck every time i take off from a stop

Three things: Either the rear brakes are releasing, causing a clunk, try service and adjust rear brakes. If not, go to the drive shaft, check the u-joints and/or jack up the rear of the truck and rotate your tires by hand to see if there is a clunk in the rear end itself.

My 2008 trailblazer is making a clunking noise when I stop

2 things to look at, check your front swaybar end links, these tend to make a clunking noise when bad. Also, if you're having a feeling of beeing bumped a tad with that clunk, check your slip yoke on your driveline, needs to be greased.

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup

The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.

Trans clunking when slowing down

Sounds like youi may have a few serious problems going on to have that kind of back lash occuring at higher speeds. I have experiance with low spped clunks on Bronkos and your type of vech being a car dealer. One you might try for low speed clunk on take off and braking at stop likts just completeing a stop? Pull the drive shaft and lubricate the splin - two check your leaf springs for weakness and wore bushings - take a look at your shocks - three u bolts holding springs to rear axle housing may be letting the axle housing actually dip or tweak or all those thing in combination - now you may have some serious slop in the pig - transfer case may be causing that clunk - as far as high spped clunk and activity you have a serous problem and you just might drop the transferr case have an accident fliping over..............Mike South Bend Indiana don't just keep driving and making problem worst...........
