2003 Pontiac Vibe rattling noise

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From stircrazy on 2003 Pontiac Vibe rattling noise

I have a 2003 Pontiac Vibe, automatic transmission, front wheel drive, with 50,000 miles. For the past week or so I have noticed a loud rattling noise upon acceleration, in both drive and reverse. It only does it when I first start to accelerate. Once I get going it stops. Its really hard to tell where the noise is coming from most of the time it sounds like it is coming from the front of the car but every once in a while it sounds like its coming from the rear. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? Thanks for any and all advise!!

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Hard to say. Try ratlling around the exhaust system -- grab it cold and shake it a bit and see if that's it. Other that comes to mind is a CV joint which about can't make a sound when still, T

My car was jumping and it seemed like the passenger side front wheel was wobbling. So i replaced the cv joint but when i put the new one in, I notice it still had alot of play once inside the transmission.. Could it be the gears??? All assistance is needed Or is this be or is there anyway i could possibly get a diagram??

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

What kind of play? You verify you have the correct axle? Always compare your old axle input shaft to the transmission to your new one. I had one Friday that looked the same but the axle input shaft had a smaller diameter.

Did you check hub bearing for looseness? Axle shafts usually don't cause the wheel to wobble. That is usually a worn out tie rod, control arm bushing, ball joint, or wheel bearing that causes that.

Very important to be sure that your axle nut is tightened to specification (159 ft lbs) because that preloads the hub bearing.

Question From Guest on Car Vibrating - HELP!

I've been having trouble with my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT shaking at 50 mph and up. I've gone to 4 mechanics, each of them saying it was the tires... so I replaced them. I've also gone to a transmission specialist under the advice of another mechanic, which got me no where. Does anyone know what this could be? Please help!

Response From Guest Top Rated Answer

could be out of balanced wheels or bad cv joints. I had that problem and it seemed to be low on power steering fluid as well. I filled it up and the shaking almost fully went away. Be sure to come here and ask first, and when you go into a place don't act like you don't know nothing.

It makes me wonder what kind of mechanic couldn't figure that out?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Each wheel should be checked and all shocks, and bearings and the parts that are involved with steering and suspension.

It's odd that different tires would cause the same problem but there are bad new tires, T

sqeaking and clicking

Question From Pyrcide on sqeaking and clicking

1998
Pontiac Grand Prix SE
3.8
170k

Well It's been awhile, I'm back. For those of you who don't remember I had the bad intake manifold, and thanks for the help diagnosing. Turns out not long after that, my engine threw a rod bearing (not surprising after all the coolant it burned). So after It sat it my garage for 8 months, I finally had a used engine put in it.
On to the new. I just replaced the both front tie rods and brakes pads last weekend. My rotors are shot, bad. I'm going to do them this weekend. Anyway, I made a sharp corner a couple days ago, and heard a loud thump front passenger side. Ever since then, the front passenger side area (wheel area) makes a hard clicking (or thumping) when turning and a sporatic sqeal just when driving straight. Everything I can think of points to the CV axle. I pushed up and down on the front to test the struts, and no sqeaking. Anybody disagree with the CV axle being the issue. Let me know thanks.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Welcome back

Hmmm? Just doing pads on bad rotors may account for the squeaking noise. IDK about this loud thump? Were brake pads securely in place and the caliper? Enough miles for some more than just the rotors and carefully inspect your new pads as they don't like it not being done together.

CV joints frequently make a crackle, or like pop corn popping when you turn and accelerate from a stop is a good clue that they are bad but don't usually make noise straight ahead at first. If a boot is torn and spewing grease the shaft really should go and even if not CV joint life is unknown to me. Some go, some go on forever. I've seen one without warning just snap too.

After you are convinced of the noise and do or have the work done do get a real alignment which should include a complete check of all the parts that could wear out or disallow a proper alignment. Do your best to check wheel bearings too. Good luck,

T

Response From Pyrcide

Thank you for the advice, but I can assure you this noise is not the brake rotors. Yes they are are shot, they have been for some time, yet this noise is quite severe. I just bought rotors for my car 3 hours ago, they will be put on by saturday evening. I had an 89 grand prix, in which, the axle collapsed into the rim, ruined both. I'm just checking all my points, before I go sinking money into the wrong problem, and once again your advice is very much appreciated, thats why I post here, I hope any advice I can give, will do the same... Thanks again

Response From Tom Greenleaf

This is tough to know exactly what by a web forum so it needs everything inspected at the age and miles. If need be get a shop to diagnose it and you can still do the work,

2006 Grand Prix Front End Popping

Question From bryanmiller5 on 2006 Grand Prix Front End Popping

I have a popping on the drivers side front end of my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix that has 62000 miles on it. I am trying to get to the bottom of this problem as I have taken it to two places already and they cant pinpoint what it is yet. This popping occurs whenever I start to take off from a complete stop, when applying the brakes to slow down and also when I'm just driving down the road and I happen to hit a dip in the road. I'm not sure if this could be my struts or strut mounts or possibly even my ball joint. Here is a link to a video that I attempted to take while driving in my car. It was windy out when I took this video, and I'm sorry if the quality isn't the greatest. I would really appreciate your thoughts and or suggestions!!

Response From fordtech

could possibly be the lower controll arm bushings. have seen a lot of the vertical bushing go bad.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

We are guessing without being there and checking ourselves. I'm with R-T that upper bushing plate is more likely at 62K than control arm bushings but anything is possible,

Response From re-tired Top Rated Answer

I agree with you , the video is usless . BUT , at least you made an effort . If it only made popping sound in turns i would say CV joints . But you are getting sound in straight driving .I would suspect the upper bearing plate on strut(s) ,coil spring binding. Next would be a loose motor/trans mount. Try pinpointing the sound by spraying some lube at suspect areas.wd 40 with a straw works. listen for a change in the sound .This would get you in the right area.Also check all CV boots for tears.
