I get a slight clunk noice when starting forward and upon braking. Someimes I can feel it through the brake pedal. Not a major noise but worrisome. Car runs fine otherwise.
when I excelerate at times not every time but some times I get a quick pop sound just 1 pop then it stops !
i have poping cracking noise and vibration in the front of the car on accelaration. When i hit a dip in the road it sounds like the cv axiles are touching something because i hear a grinding noise. i have replaced the struts, cv axiles, checked the wheel bearing, check the motor mounts and transmission mounts, and all rubber seals under the car. what is it?
Vehicle makes popping, straining, squeaking sound... seems like it's coming from dashboard/front of car.
Same problem area. Clunk/pop noises when starting forward or braking.
I have been hearing a loud clicking when car is moving forward.
Makes a popping noise while accelerating on freeway / freeway speeds. Does not occur frequently seems to just happen randomly from time to time
While accelerating, there is that popping noise in the front of the car, which cab be the Axle, where the rubber part is torn, which lets grease out which causes the problem.
Replaced axle and now runs great again.
Clicking in the front by the axle
