What makes a constant grinding noise while driving on the drivers side coming from up past the CV joint on a 99 Alero?
check for worn out brakes check the wheel bearing - if it's a constant grinding noise, it is probably the bearing. New ones cost around $100 or so from an auto parts store. You can change it yourself if you have some skill, and you can actually do the change without removing the whole spindle assemb…ly - the bearing is attached to the spindle by 3 bolts on the engine side of the spindle. Remember to take off the axle nut first, so that the bearing can just slide off of it. And also remember to disconnect the ABS sensor - and reconnect it when done. (MORE)
Answer . \nThis would be a massive undertaking and would require a donor vehicle for parts. Oherwise the parts alone would run into thousands of dollars. Sell the one you have and go buy a 4wd.
What might cause heavy thunking sound and feeling like something is catching in front suspension when turning left or right and then letting go with heavy thunk on a 1986 Ford Thunderbird?
YOU NEED SOME POWER STEERING FLUID. . It could be your C-V joints, If so you should get it fixed before the problem escalates. This is incorrect. All Thunderbirds are rear wheel drive therefore will not have CV joints on the front. It sounds like you need ball joint/bushings replaced.
What would cause a 1994 Eclipse to make a thunk noise you hear and feel in the pedals when slowing down or from stop to initial acceleration?
well it could be any thing but I had the same problem and it was coming form the trany area so i put a new clucth,persure plate,flywheel, and throw out bearing so try that
Answer . Check the "boot" for cracks and see if there is any loss of grease. The boot is the rubber housing around the CV Joint. If the boot is damaged, grease has escaped and the CV Joint is making noise, the CV joint must be replaced.
When you start your 2001 blazer and drive for 5 feet you get a thunk sound and your headlights flicker?
It sounds like the anti-lock brake system might be going through its normal initial self-test. Check your battery cables for corrosion too if you lights are dimming excessively. The current drawn during the self-test can be enough to kill the engine/fuel delivery system if your cables are loose or c…orroded. Regards. (MORE)
What is the thunking noise from the drivers side front when you go over bumps in your 1999 Geo Prizm?
Answer . \nWorn, loose, or broken suspension parts. Have the suspension inspected by a professional. This can be a very dangerous situation, and I suggest you attend to this ASAP.
\n How to get a Jeep Cherokee out of 4WD \n. \n. \nThere is a lever just to the right of the driver's seat left of the e-brake/shifter. You have to move the lever to the right and up to get it out of 4 wheel drive.
2001 impala that is making a rubbing noise while driving you changed the cv joint but did not help could it be something in the steering?
Answer . Could be the rear bearings, brake shoes, brake pads and of course, the suspension. It might help to jack the vehicle up and spin each wheel by hand.
Your 1999 jimmy makes a whining noise when in 2 wheel drive but stops making the noise in 4 wheel drive and have also noticed some leakage under car?
Answer . It's probably a problem with the differential. In 4wd you're putting pressure on the gears that isn't there in 2wd.
01 Cherokee Classic 4x4 65000 miles makes a grinding noise in D drive when stopped at a light and seems to come from back passenger side exhaust No problem in neutral and only happens when stopped?
Check the rear drums, make sure nothing is broken in there, I was having the same problem and that's what it was...
Why does my 1994 Nissan Pathfinder 4 wheel drive auto hub makes grinding noise after shifting from reverse to drive automatic transmission?
The transmission on the 1994 Nissan Pathfinder may need to have afluid flush. Dirty fluid will cause the gears to shift hard whentransitioning from place to place.
Why over sudden bumps at low speeds does the front end of a 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII make a thunk sound from the two front wheels?
I would suspect you need new struts. Have you front suspension inspected. It sounds like the sway-bar end links are bad. If they've never been replaced, then thats where i'd start. I just did this to my 94
Your 2000 Ford Windstar makes a growling noise from the front end while driving could that be coming from the CV joints?
Answer . sounds like your transaxles or transmission. Answer . It could also be a bad wheel bearing - See "Related Questions" below for more
its either vacuum hoses . the jeep has a fork that engages the 4 wheel drive system . that could be broke . it is located on passenger side of axle it will have three hoses going to it . 4 bolts hold the part on.
This is done by putting the vehicle in Park first. I have actually done it in two different ways and both work. One is in park and then pulling up the lever for the 4-wheel drive to 4H. After that I put the vehicle into drive and then I let is role a little until I see the light for PART TIME comeon… on the left side of your driving display panel. The other way is the same but with the vehicle in neutral. (MORE)
if you have to ask this then I would have to guess that your Cherokee is NOT a 4wd model...otherwise the 4wd SHIFTER right beside the regular shifter would be a very obvious clueon how to do this. If what you mean is exactly how and "when can you" then you can engage 4hi at any time moving or stoppe…d but to engage 4low you need to be stopped completely and in neutral. same answers for going back to 2wd.

CV joints make loud clicking noises when the steering wheel is turned while vehicle is moving (usually when accelerating). If you put off replacing them for too long, the bearings will fall out and you will have to pay a tow truck to tow the vehicle. The bearings are marble sized and fit inside the …boot - generally when a CV joint goes out, it's because of the bearings. (MORE)
If it is 4 wheel drive there will be a shift lever for the 4 wheel drive right beside the drivers seat to shift from two wheel to four wheel drive
1999 Jeep Cherokee When stopping and also when letting off the brake to start there is a thunk in the rear end like the car is lurching It comes and goes but is usually quite pronounced?
If the clunk, or thunk, is quite pronounced both when you are taking off and when you apply the brakes or before the vehicle comes to a full stop, the problem is most likely to be the U-joint(s) on the drive shaft is/are going bad.
Answer . The joint would eventually break. possibly with disasterous results. for your own safety get it replaced as soon as possible.
Just shift your Jeep into "Neutral" and then move the 4WD lever into place; you should hear it drop into 4WD... Then just put your Jeep into gear.. As a heads up, when in "LOW", taking corners too sharp, you may hear a knocking sound......don't worry, that's normal from what I've been told by sever…al Jeep mechanics.. Hope this helps!.

What would cause a thunk noise in the rear right side of a 2007 MazdaSpeed 6 when applying thrust not when braking switching gears or clutching in or out?
The rear-differential is shot. On a year old car with 20,000 miles. Quality engineering go!
When you make a turn it makes a loud thunk coming from the rear end its an 89 Ford Bronco guessing bearing but not sure any ideas?
Three things come to mind. U-joint,axel bearings, and differential spider gear.. Probably not u-joint as turning would be no factor to vary the noise. Possible axel bearings but if they are that bad they should be making noise such as a groweling sound all the time.. With your description of the t…hunk when turning, it sounds like something internal like the spider gears, or the positraction clutches (if you have posi or limited slip rear end).. The more I think about it, if you get one thunk, then it probably is the clutches.. Good luck. RR (MORE)
"Thunk" is not proper English at all. It is used either humorouslyor ignorantly. The word is "thought." Thunk is a sound made by a falling or thrown object when it hitssomething, similar to thud. A thunk in computer science or computer programming refers to ahidden activity occurring when passing po…ssibly incompatibleparameters to a subroutine. (MORE)
Put it in neutral,and shift the 4 wheel drive lever into two wheel drive,then back up a few feet. This should disengage 4 wheel drive.
Shift to 4-wheel drive on the go and let off accelerator for a few seconds and go back on the accelerator and it will shift in about 5-10 seconds ..
98 grand Cherokee started making nosie in the front end and front CV drive shalf joint came apart put new one in started making same noise?
It's probably the axle pre-loaded to much. They all suffer with this. Rebuild the axle and reset the preload on the planets throught the bearing using shims. Best way to test for this noise on free run down a hill, if its making a wherring noise it'll be the axle. Pre loads will need to be set up wi…th a DTi gauge, best to be done a by a pro. (MORE)
If the noise is only when you turn or accelerate hard it is most likely a half shaft joint has gone bad. To check, lift the front of the car and place it on jack stands. Reach up and grab the center shaft and push and pull on it (side to side motion). There should only be marginal side to side pla…y. Also look at dust boots at the joints to see if they are ripped open or torn. (MORE)
Your 2002 clk430 cabriolet makes a thunk-grinding noise under the driver seat when you drive over a bump on the diagonal what is it?
I had the exact same problem with my 2002 CLK430 cabriolet. Everything seemed fine 99% of the time, but when I drove over and uneven surface diagonally--- like pulling into a gas station on a slightly higher grade than the road --- I could hear a distinct THUNK from under the car. Mine sounded like …it was coming from the forward part of the car. The problem was a loose bolt that holds together a couple of pieces of metal that add structural support to the vehicle. I think they are specific to the cab, but not sure. Solution was to disconnect the pieces, clean them off really well and bolt them back together REALLY tight. If the problem is ignored for too long, the pieces in question can degrade to the point where they must be replaced at substantial expense. This was not the case for me. I think the cost at my local German Indy specialist was less than $100 for the fix. I haven't heard a peep since. (MORE)
The Answer is Yes! The CV joints are connected to each of the front axles! (some SUVs and 4wd or AWD vehicles also have rear CV joints as they have rear axle shafts). These joints exist to allow each axle to pivot along with either the vehicles suspension and/or its steering axis. Each Axle has 2 CV… joints, an inner (located at the end of the shaft closest to the front/rear differential and 1 outer joint located just behind the front/rear spindles on the inside of both front/rear inner wheel wells. They can be easily identified by a round tapered rubber black boot that houses the joints! Most commonly these rubber boots dry out and break overtime due to everyday driving! When this happens the bearing grease inside the boot gets ejected due to centrifugal force, in other cases the grease become old, thins out, and can no longer properly lubricate the bearings. The joints consist of large bearings and a bearing racer that holds the bearings in place and the joints come together via usually a snap ring! Whether in 2WD or 4WD the CV Joints at which these axle shafts are connected to are in constant motion with the vehicle. On my Suburban a 97' K1500, the 4WD system is activated by an actuator which pushes a rod to lock the ring gears inside the differential together, when I push the button to engage the 4WD. To Keep it simple the front/rear axles which again the CV joints are connected to,, are always in motion with the vehicle as the axles themselves are directly connected to the front/rear wheels! :) Hope that helps your question! (MORE)
There is no actuator. The connection is made inside the transfer case when you put it in 4wd.
In the early days of radio and TV, Edgar Bergen (yes, Candace's dad) had a ventriloquist act which featured a dummy named Mortimer Snerd. Mortimer was pretty dumb, and most of the time when something was explained to him, he'd shake his head and say "Who'd have thunk it?" You might also be familiar… with another of Mortimer's inventions - the word "DUH!" (MORE)
Yes, " thunk " it is the past participle of think . It reminds me of " snuck, " which can be used instead of sneaked . But, most people don't use either, it sounds weird to the ear if one is unsure. A lot of people choose a word tense based on what sounds correct. But, most Americans spe…ak incorrectly. Choosing the most common use isn't always the correct or proper use.

The front axle could need fluid or rebuilt or you are mistakingtransfer case noice for front end noice. You should check the fluidin both and change and orb top off if needed
SelecTrac Step one: move the selector into desired 4WD mode, either Part Time or Full Time at any vehicle speed Step two: keep driving for 4Lo: Step one: slow the truck down to about 2-3mph Step two: move the tranmission (P, R, N, 2, 1) into neutral Step three: move the transfer case (2…wd, 4PT, 4FT, N, 4LO) to neutral, then press down and move into 4LO Step four: place transmission into "1" QuadraTrac I,II Step one: enjoy, you are already in 4WD Don't have the shifter? You can't do it! (MORE)
My jeep makes this noise sometimes too the only thing I can tell you is check the transfer case fluid then if it doesn't stop make sure it's not something more serious like u joints or your transfer case itself, but it's most likely the transfer case fluid
You move the SlecTrac/QudraTrac into 4WD If you do not have the option to move it into 4WD as described above, then your vehicle is not equipped with 4WD and is considered 2WD
Your wheel isn't supposed to make noise, so you are ether low on brake fluid or you'll need new brake pad's, its recommended to get your vehicle checked as soon as possible. What type of noise? A scraping could be the dust shield on the brakes rubbing the rotor. The mud guard may have come loose a…nd rubbing the tire, Wheel bearing, axle. Lots of things. (MORE)
It should not. A U-Joint that is worn will make a knocking sound when it starts or reverses.
Impossible to answer, too many variables. If it has just started clicking when going around corners, you could probably get another 6 months. A big factor is where you are driving. The joint went bad because the rubber boot split and let the grease out and dirt in. If you are on gravel roads much, m…ore dirt is going to get in and it will go bad quicker. City driving, not so much. Let it go too long and it can come apart while driving and very likely tear up something else, probably the transmission. I have seen them break the transmission housing if they come apart and jam up. (MORE)

How do you know when a person is a goth i need to get this answer i thunk one of my friends is a goth?
This is going to sound very stereotypical so sorry : ) for the record I like Goth kids, they're much nicer than those preppy kids. Ok so if ur friend is getting a lot of new tattoos, wears exclusively black clothes and makeup, foundation 9 shades too pale, and spends more than 3 hours a day in a gra…veyard, he or she just might be a Goth. If they are, make sure you stay friends with them. Goths make good friends. (MORE)
Several things could do that but the first one that comes to mind is a bad front wheel bearing/hub assembly.
What makes a jeep grand Cherokee make a cracking noise when you cut the wheels all the way and drive?
You are probably in Part Time (4 wheel drive). Mine does make noise (tires cupping and tugging on steering wheel) when it is in PT. I have a 95 with Select Trac and the vehicle info center tells me that it is in Part Time even when I have shifted it back to 2 WD. It shows all 4 tires engaged also …and flashes "service four wheel drive switch". Sometimes it gets back to normal on it's own. I adjusted transfer case shift linkage but still get errant message. Good luck (MORE)
The CV joint would have to be broke in 1/2 to cause the 4-wheel dr. not to work. 4-wheel drive would work BUT the front wheels would not pull.
No, "thunk" is not the past participle of "think". It is not even a word. The correct form would be, "Who would have thought it?" Sometimes "Who'd have thunk it" is used for humorous effect, with the understanding that the speaker knows it is not correct English.
a cv (constant velocity) joint is used to transmit power from drive train (engine, transmission) to the wheels like universal joints, but also allows wheels to turn (steer) in front drive vehicles
\n. Look underneath for a drive shaft that goes from the transfer case to the front axle. If it has one, it is four wheel drive.
Depends on what your vehicle is. On something like an OldsmobileBravada - which uses a transfer case - you simply replace it withan NP231 transfer case. For something like a Subaru, which uses adifferential attached to the transmission, it gets much morecomplicated, and would ultimately require eith…er extensivemodification to the drivetrain, or mounting the car body onto acompatible 4x4 chassis.
