Hi there,

I would be checking that the exhaust mounts are not broken, the engine mounts are sound, the suspension is all ok, has the mechanic heard this noise, does it do it all the time? Check the sway bar bushes, and the suspension, it should not be that hard to locate.

Hi thanks,
According to mechanic the second time he check the car told me eveything was fine and nothing loose under, second mechanic told me after hear the noise its gearbox(automatic) fault. Noise getting bad took it to first mechanic had drive with him but no sound of noise as he was drive bit faster and straight road, but that doesnt work with noise only when drive slow and over humps.I read fiat forum which I found lot people with same problem and suggest REAR SUBFRAME BUSHES cups(MODIFICATION). Bought them 2 for rear, but the guy say I dont need them as last time he check no pro with bushes. Dont know what to do hes fixing my brake shoe and wheel cylinder at the moment.

If you have the bushes, have them fitted, if others have this same problem, it is worth a try.
