i have a knocking noise coming from the front end of my car, almost sounds like the axel because it only happens in motion, the thing is it almost sounds like it depends on the amount of pressure i apply to the gas pedal, it happens at a certain amount of pressure, if i take my foot off the gas it goes away, if i press harder it goes away, my dad thinks its the transaxel any idea as to what it might be?
driving straight, and i can feel like vibrations through the pedal when it happens, if i tap the gas quickly like on off on off on off it makes a short 1 knock noise also, i have no idea what this may be
I had a similar sound and turned out mine was the endlink between the sway bar and control arm - an $11 part plus new ES busings at $15.... Still waiting for the metal piece though... mine was destroyed.
Yep I am having the same problem too. I usually get it when I get to speed. Around 60-70 mph and usually during highway driving. This started my suspension install. Still trying to figure it out. Going to change bushings, End Linksm, Tie rod ends. Hopefully this will fix mine. Next thing will be new tires and then maybe axles.
I was having a similar problem. I ended up putting the front of the car up on jack stands and putting it in gear. It still made the clunking noise. So we turned it off and put it in neutral. Then turned the tire manually. Ended up being my axle.
i am still having the damn knocking sounds, its getting worse, and the car seems to be idling weird, if i rev the engine and then let or the gas the rpms drop down and then try to go back up but it seems like they have a little bit of trouble getting back up like it sputters and bit for like 2 seconds and then it goes back to normal, also it only really makes the knocking noise when i press the gas pedal in like a quarter inch..... i dont have money to pay for repairs!
I have a similar problem as well. It just started recently, but a lot of times when I start going from a dead stop theres a weird sort of vibration type of deal that feel like its coming from the wheels. At first I thought I was hitting a pothole but it doesnt happen all the time. I have no idea what it is.
You guys need to check ALL bolts related to your motor mounts. Check the mounts themselves, the center bolts thru them, the bolts that hold them to the crossmember, the three tranny bolts on that mount braket, the dogbone the 4 crossmember bolts themselves, the passenger side mount bracket bolts that bolt to the block. If the mounts are way worn, get some ES inserts or Ghetto fill them. Then check the suspension bolts such as the sway bar bracket bolts the end link bolts (these can come loose for some reason), the control arm pivot bolts, the bolts that hold the donut end of the control bushing in. Then check the strut bolts. at the knuckle and at the tower. Check the steering rack bolts. Stick a pry bar in various places and pry on stuff to see if you get movement. Check wheel bearing endplay. Is the noise RPM related or speed related? Very important to know that. Check clearances and make sure nothing is close to touching like engine and crossmember. I had this happeneing for quite some time when I put my DET in. I also had the intake elbow from the IC rubbing up against the master cylinder and causing horrible rattles in the gas pedal! It took me forever to figure that one out.
could this has anything to do with my tranny? cause my second gear synchro is screwed (at least thats what i think it is), my second gear was getting worse and worse about popping out and now i dont even use second anymore... so could my knocking noise be tranny related cause i notice the noise more when i hold the clutch in... but it also seems like the knocking noise happens often when i am turning left.... so thats why i think its the suspension... i dunno

Thanks To AztekSE-R for the sig pic!
I had the same problem with the intake hitting the master cylinder, it damn near drove me crazy, i ended up changing the tranny because it felt like it was comming from there. When i realized what it was i felt soo stupid.Oh well
Mine did the same thing you know what it was? The left axle was trying to come out of the tranny the little snap ring on the end of the left axle was not holding it in there. And you know what it just started doing it again last night. Im really starting to get tired of my SE-R something always breaking?
I had a similar problem with mine as well...cross member that actually bolts up to the front end of the car was totally rusted out..there was nothing holding the front 2 bolts on the cross memeber except rust...i had fabricated a bracket to replace what rotted away. During acceleration i was hearing vibration noises on the front end...checked everything i could think of then when i lifted it up and revved it up i saw that the engine would flex and it would make the sound..
