1998 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 102500 miles
I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager, and recently it has started making noises that are not normal, and it also doesn't accelerate smoothly. I have given the details below. Please help as soon as you can because I really need to go on a long drive with this vehicle.
When I turn my steering wheel, I hear noises that sound like a spring is being pulled, with a clunking noise as well. I can notice this especially when I am turning left or right at an intersection.
The second abnormal noise I hear when driving is when I apply the brakes. As I am braking to a complete stop, it sounds like some rubber or solid material is scratching something hard - something like a very soft roaring noise. Sometimes, I hear clunking when I am brakingto a complete stop.
Can you please tell me what these noises mean, and what I should get checked by the mechanic? Finally,
the other problem I notice is when I am accelerating. As I am accelerating and pass the 25 mph mark, and then passing the 55 mph mark, the vehicle shakes a little bit each time. Can you please tell me what this problem is and what I should get checked by the mechanic?
