1990 Mercuray Topaz, automatic, Milage: 129,260, Transmission does leak.
For almost a month now, I've been hearing this loud popping sound coming somewhere near my left front tire, I can tell it's diffently coming from under my car but I have no clue what it could be.
I've taken it to two differant companies and they both can't figure out what it is either. The first company told me it was the brakes, so I had the brakes done (as they needed to be done anyways) and the sound kept happening.
The second company said it was the Rack and Pinion, so I had that fixed, still happening. Then the 2nd company told me it was ball joints and they replaced that for free, but it wasn't those either and their completely stumped on what it could be as well.
The sound only happens when I make a left hard, kind of a hard left turn, go over a pot hole (Front driver side tire only), or press the brakes somewhat firmly to make a complete stop.
Another thing I noticed the other day was that my front driver side tire was making skidding sounds when I was driving a somewhat bumpy road the other day.
I think its the axle but I'm not to sure. The 2nd company told me that my strut and cv joint are ok so those aren't causing the issue, but I'm just so stumped on it. Any help would be greatful.
have the same problem?
