CV joints. Get it checked right away. (or it could just be the person you ran over trying to get you to stop. lol)

Where is the noise coming from? If its from the fenders or wheels is a much different problem than if its coming from the transaxle.

Assuming it is front wheel or 4 wheel drive, it is worn CV or Constant Velocity Joints. :o)

IT is your CV Joints which is making this noise.

possibly distributor. tow to mechanic . if you drive , you could damage your engine.

Let the body out of the trunk, alternatively it could be a homeless man at the window.

It might be a CV joint, when the CV boot is ripped and the grease is partly gone , then it makes noise.

It should not. A U-Joint that is worn will make a knocking sound when it starts or reverses.
