I HEAR A NOISE WHEN I REVERSE

2004 Chrysler Pacifica • 112,465 miles

I have a 2004 PAC, I recently bought it from an auction with 110,894mi in NH, I dont have many problems but minor issues that I can't figure out. When I put the car in reverse I can feel the transmission shift gear and as I reverse straight it doesnt make a noise, but as I turn the wheel its makes a thuding literally as the wheel moves it goes thud, thud, thud as I continue turning. Then I put it in drive and turn the wheel and it makes a similar thud as if I was reversing but just once but a firm thud. I don't know if its the steering or if it as to do with the reversing issue? Any advice would be thankful and any basic information or things I should look for due to the high mileage to pay attention to would be grateful. F.Y.I. I also think I need engine mounts after doing some research today with PAC common problems, don't know if it has to do with reversing and steering?

The front mount is common.

It sounds like an axle is making your continuous noise.

Have them checked to verify
