I have a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am. While driving home from work, it started to make a thud, thud, thud noise like I had a flat tire. Then it started doing a realy bad vibration, (roughness) more so when I was slowing down( it is a 5 speed/4 clyd)and also a ratlling kind of clunking and it sounds and feels and sounds like something is going to break, is coming from what seems like the front drivers side. Seems to do it a little less when accelerating, does not do it at an idle. This car has front wheel drive? Not sure. Could this be a u-joint or something with the clutch.
