Question Asked: sharp clunk when accelerate hard to @35 mph and abruptly let off on the accelerator.
May 15, 2011, 04:25 PM
When I accelerate hard to about 35 mph and then abruptly let off on the accelerator, there is a hard clunk in the front left wheel area. It does it every time I try. If I accelerate hard but do not let off abruptly on the accelerator, later when I slightly brake there can be a clunk or two like I ran over a branch with my left tire.
