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 excessivel…y. The current drawn during the self-test can be enough to kill the engine/fuel delivery system if your cables are loose or corroded. Regards.
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 th…is ASAP.
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
What is wrong with my 1991 Mazda 323 automatic it made a loud thunk then stopped driving there is no acceleration you push the gas pedal and the car doesn't move?
maybe the engine fell out
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!
"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 hitssomethi…ng, similar to thud. A thunk in computer science or computer programming refers to ahidden activity occurring when passing possibly incompatibleparameters to a subroutine.
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. Reac…h up and grab the center shaft and push and pull on it (side to side motion). There should only be marginal side to side play. Also look at dust boots at the joints to see if they are ripped open or torn.
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.
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 jo…ints 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!
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!"
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 w…eird to the ear if one is unsure. A lot of people choose a word tense based on what sounds correct. But, most Americans speak incorrectly. Choosing the most common use isn't always the correct or proper use.

In CV Joints
How much does it cost to replace a cv joint on 4 wheel drive
because they had free labor
In Chevy Silverado
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 h…umorous effect, with the understanding that the speaker knows it is not correct English.
