Noises problem
2002 Pontiac Grand Prix 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 127xxx miles

I just bought an '02 Grand Prix GT, and I've noticed that when I go over speed bumps and over rough roads, the front end suspension makes a loud clunking sound like its hitting something. Can u tell me what this might be?
Also it has trouble starting sometimes, it always turns over and starts initially, but it boggs down and shuts off right away. I have to tap the gas for it to start and stay on. Do I need a tune up, or is it the starter or what could it be?

Check if there is a broken or craked coil spring. Also, check steerug componets too such as ball joints, stabilizer bushings.

Can you describe the sound that it makes?
