There is an odd knocking sound from the front of our vehicle. If I had to describe the noise, it sounds like the shock absorber is knocking against the top of the strut whenever you hit bobbles / bumps in the road. (I am not talking pot holes... just minor bumps in the road). We have had the vehicle looked at several times and each time discussions of roll-bar ends and alignment all come back as OK / fixed! The front offside (driver side !) tyre does ware on the outside edge EVEN though the


If all the components that are visible are determined to be good (ball joints, tie rods-both inner and outer, and roll-bar links) then it is probably the struts. There is always a small amount of gas leakage from them, and ... 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan

1998 Saturn: Grinding/rubbing/screaching noise somewhere up front. Usually I can hear it when I first take off and then after a block or two it quits. It also quits when the car is stopped. It seems to have started after I hit a bump with the front passenger-side tire a couple of weeks ago. At first, I thought it might be the brake drum, etc. but the noise does not seem to come from that part of the car.

There is a knocking noise (when cold weather) when vehicle is in gear and brake isdepressed- at stop sign- the noise will stop if vehicle is put in neutral (brake still depressed) and begin again if put back in drive. The noise seems to be coming from the front right side under the hood- and is a thumping bumping sound. The noise also stops when you take off and the engine picks up rpms- could this have anything to do with brakes or some engine or transmission brake-or even the level of fluid in

There is a noise coming from the left side of the car. The noise happens every time I hit a bump. It sounds like a muffler bracket is borken. Are other people with Infiniti's experience this problem? Some times the noise sounds like it is coming from the suspension system up front.

Sounds like you have a bearing going out in the hub. The reason it stops making noise with 4 wheel engaged is having the truck in 4 wheel drives puts power to the front hub. Which gives it more stability. In other words you have power which helps bin ... 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty Super Cab

When I go over bumps or am turning I hear a clunking noise on my front right side. It seems to slowly get worse. It seems like it happens whenever the weight of the car is transferred. If I make a turn really slow and soft I can make it not happen. I checked my axles and they seem intact. My struts seem to be OK, I can push down on my hood and only get 1 bounce. This noise occurs more loudly when curving to the left and then to the right. Weight transfer of some sort. Any Ideas or suggestions?
