ENGINE KNOCKING.... OR SOMETHING..... ACK!!!!

Chevrolet Other

AAAHHHH!

I don't know what is going on with my car. Its making a strange knoking sound, similar to tht of a flat tire, but the car doesn't shake, and it only happens while I'm coasting. It never happens durring acceleration or breaking. And its coming from the drivers side. What is happening to my car?

oh yeah, its an 87 nova, with almost 217000 miles on it. I can't get a new car, or I would, so I have to fix it. Help me please!

Does it happen when turning or change when vering left or right?

Sounds like it may be in the drivetrain, such as an axleshaft. I say that because when it is under load the joints are torqued tight, but when coasting they are relaxed.
