Hello, recently my car started to make a clunking, banging and shaking. Mostly when turning or giving it gas. When I check over car I noticed CV axle had a lot of play on the left side. I removed and axle is definitely bad so I replaced the CV . I also replaced ball joint and upper control arm. I replaced Inner outer tie rods on both side as well. I test drove car and it's still doing it. It even feels and sounds worse at times. When shifting from park to drive or reverse it makes a bang noise now. It hadn't done that till new axle installed. My alignment and wheel position is way off just to note. Also to note when install new axle the plunger side pulled out alot but went back in. Can my new CV be bad or defective.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

Is it loud enough for you to record and upload for me to hear? Also, have you checked the engine and trans mounts? You could have one broken.

Let me know if what you are experiencing seems to mirror what is in the links above. If you can, open the hood. Have a helper shift through the gears while you watch for excessive movement in the motor when shifting.

Try that and let me know what you find.

Joe

I'll will take a video best way to see and hear what's happening. None of those. Just to note before this happened there was zero issues with car. No noises no vibrations no shims or shakes. It happened overnight. It's not the mounts, misfire etc. When car is on there is no vibrations, no engine movement and or transmission moving or shaking. When turning steering wheel in idle there is zero noise. When driving The noise sounds and feels like it's coming from under feet or near inner part of wheel. Same thing when shift from drive to reverse or reverse to drive ect in idle. I When I installed the new CV I noticed the joint on plunger side completely pulled out but went back in. Could it be the new CV is faulty?

This is just shifting gear. You can hear that clunk. When driving that noise sounds rapid and 20 times louder. Mostly when turning the wheel. That shaft has no movement but the plunger side of CV jumps even the housing moves. I couldn't take a video while driving.

Sorry for posting so much but I have a update. I changed the CV and it's no longer making that noise when shifting gears. But when at idle turning wheel it does that clunking banging noise. I shortened tie rod and at idle it stopped for most part. But still makes the noise at time when turning wheel. I had sister boyfriend get behind wheel and turn it slowly and let off break and give very little gas. He only moved few inches before The whole engine, transmission jumped. So it looks like the mounts are bad plus the CV which I replaced plus alignment is really off. I think that might be what's wrong.

Hi,

If the engine jumped, make sure the mounts are good. I watched the video above, and there is a lot of movement when shifting. I'm not sure what you mean by the plunger side of the CV joint. Are you referring to the inner joint?

Let me know. Also, let me know if you find any of the mounts broken. If possible, record the sound you hear when turning.

Here is whole story from start to finish. I should of started with this. I will record a better video now I have someone to help me. By plunger I mean the inner joint. More details I forgot to include. It all started when driving home. I was turning left and the wheel didn't return it kept turning. I get home and look at right side and saw outer tie rod is bad. I replaced Inner and outer right tie rod. I saw sway bar link was snapped. I drove to shop and started to hear a very faint banging that got progressively worse. After having sway bar link replaced it got worse. I get the car home and I replaced Inner and outer tie rod on left side and still happening. When at dead stop and turning going no more then 5 mph it clunks and bangs. Even when going straight it vibrates. Now at complete stop and turning the wheel it was clunking and popping. When I shortened tie rod ends on left side that popping banging stopped for most part. When shifting gear it would jump and make same noises. I replaced left CV and now it is no longer making noise when shifting. When you start to turn wheel and move just a few mph it makes that loud banging clunking noise. When this happens the entire engine jolts forward and backwards it does look like mounts are bad. I thought it would help if you knew everything start to finish my bad for not starting off with all this first. I will also include video ASAP.

At 8 seconds in it makes the noise you will see engine jump. The clunk you hear sounds a lot louder in person and is very rapid. In video car was barely moving 1 mph. Steering wheel was turned.

Hi,

I watched the video. It really seems like you have a bad CV joint causing it to jump like that. I realize you replaced the left one, but have you inspected the right one? Also, are the splines on the axle fully seated?

That is what I would be checking. If you find the axle/CV joint is the issue, here is a link that shows in general how it is done:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/replace-cv-axle

If you look at the attachments below, they include the directions and pics specific to your vehicle for replacement.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe

I will double check the left to make sure it seated. I did check the right side and there is no sign it's bad. But again neither did the left side. So I'll just replace it. Motor mounts are cheap so might as just replace them to since I want to keep it for another 2 years or longer.

Hi,

The way it sounded and acted made me think a joint or one of the splines jumping and banging. That didn't look like a motor mount, but it still would be a good idea to check.

If you have a chance, let me know what you find.

Take care,

Joe

When I shift you will hear minor knock and see slight movement with engine. Right as I start to turn wheel you will see engine lift forward. Oil pan is in front of inner joint.

Alternator is hitting. The video I sent you see the engine lifting when turning wheel. I redid CV and it still clunks but not as loud or as much.

Hi,

The entire engine/transmission has to be moving for the alt to hit and it looks like the axle is hitting or nearly hitting the control arm.

Take a look at the pics below. Check these things and let me know if you find anything broken, missing bolts, or loose.

As far as the set ring, that may be a hard find. Have you tried the dealership? Did you lose the original one?

This motor mount is no good. This is how it came out. When I was taking this mount off I was able to move the engine back and forth With very very little force.

I forgot to mention I haven't look closely at the others. I do know the lower left engine side is gone. The lower right trans side is cracked through.

So I think it's fixed. I installed lower front engine mount. I also found upper mount wasn't fully tighten. I did timing belt couple months ago and forget to torque them to spec. I tested car in driveway to neighbor driveway going forward and reverse and turning wheel fully both way with no noise. Once I fix my alignment I can do a real test drive. So it looks like the lower front transmission mount cracked all the way, since the lower engine mount was gone engine dropped slightly and caused a lot of movement. In turn it caused cv to bind and make a lot of noise. The original CV axle was bad. The first 2 replacement where defective. So it looks to be a whole mess of things going wrong in a row. Also me making a mistake and not double checking my work. Now I don't know for sure, but this was the first time it make zero noise when testing in driveway to neighbor drive forward/ reverse and turning wheel both ways fully and stomping gas and then brakes. I should know in a few days when I do a at home alignment if it's truly fixed. Also the rest of the motor mounts are in good condition. Only the 2 front lower where bad and the 2 nuts on top engine mount loose.
