    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    Update? I can't really say this is an update to my clunking noise problem but last week, I started feeling grinding when I stop - I immediately took the truck in to get the brakes checked out. I needed two new front brake pads and one rotor on the driver side. Since I had them replaced...

    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    OK! I figured that and since these guys yesterday didn't seem willing to go further than they had to go (they were just 'looking' - I'll try another mechanic and have him do a 'real' check! It's just so weird because the 'clunks' one time and one time only. Thanks for all of your responses!

    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    Nope! I have to say no to that - they had the truck up on the lift, they had the 'lamp' that they use to get a closer look, but they didn't disassemble anything. I think these guys (there were two checking it out) were looking for something that they see right away and when nothing looked...

    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    Update.... I took the truck in the shop, didn't make the one 'clunk' sound on the way so I knew it was coming. One of the mechanics drove it, confirmed he heard the clunk (it only happens one time) they put my truck up on the lift, check the slip yoke, it was fine. They also checked my...

    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    It's Annoying, but..... It is annoying but it sounds like something I need to have checked out soon, right? I mean, if I let it go - could it get worse and break on me totally......now what if it's the radius arm bushing - isn't that serious to ignore too?

    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    Slip yoke? what is it? where is it located? Costly to replace?.....I just want to make sure to get enough info before I see a mechanic and of course they try and say it's something else or it'll cost me $500 to replace a part that I don't need to replace-:) Thanks for replying!

    A Weird Clunking Noise!

    When I stop sometimes, I hear and feel a loud clucking noise - and it only 'clunks' one time and only when I stop and at no other time. (no break squeaking/grinding). It doesn't happen all the time - maybe one or twice when I'm driving. I'm thinking something in suspension -has this ever...

    New Transmission

    It all depends.... Yes, it all depends on whether you want to hold on to the truck or not. I have a '92 Eddie Bauer that I bought last October from this guy who moved to Texas. Of course he didn't tell me everything about the truck so I found out the hard way. rebuilt engine put in...

    Good!

    Doesn't matter It doesn't matter, I'm still not buying another Ford or any other American vehicle ever again....

    Good!

    I saw your comments right after I posted my reply - that's good you got a second opinion. It's such a shame these dealerships lie, misrepresent and do whatever they can to bilk customers out of money - I have to honestly say, I WILL NOT ever buy American again - I've had the engine replaced...

    Help needed!! getting ripped off by a dealer

    No way.... Bardz, I'd definitely get a second opinion! Do you know of a mechanic nearby? Have the truck towed to their garage if you can't drive it. I've been dealing with my neighborhood mechanic for 2 years now and he's one that will NOT take me for my money or just tell me I need...

    Churping sound

    When does it happen?.... O, A fellow NJer, huh?...I live in Woodbridge, and I noticed you're from the same area - cool! The chirping happens as soon as I start to drive and as I accelerate it seem to get louder, you can hear it more, etc. I've told my mechanic about it, he had it...

    Churping sound

    I've just recently started hearing a 'churping' sound from underneath the truck, not sure if it's coming from my suspension or somewhere under the hood. I'm thinking a warn belt or something, not sure. Has anyone ever experienced this before? It starts as I start the car, then as I...

    girlfriend wants to trade her honda for an X.

    Another thought #2 Elite, I just read your last reply regarding the Honda and what's going on with it. It sounds like you and your girlfriend have pretty much decided on the X. Just please make sure it's checked out by a reputable mechanic before you purchase it, and yes, a automobile...

    girlfriend wants to trade her honda for an X.

    Another thought I can understand if she doesn't want car payments, I didn't want car payments when I bought my X ('92 w/97.00o) miles back in December 2001 and since then I've had to get replaced: rebuilt engine from '94 X w/67,000 - $1800 (labor included) front & back brakes $225 new ball...

    girlfriend wants to trade her honda for an X.

    No trade My personal opinion, I would keep the Honda. I love my '92 Eddie Bauer, I've put a lot of money into for repairs, but if I the choice to keep my X or get a newer vehicle and it's a foriegn one, I'm sorry, I would go for the foriegn automobile. Sorry to say, the quality is just...

    Trans Question....

    I don't know if I saying this right, but I may need a trans 'cellanoid' replaced....what does this mean? Is it costly? Serious? I just spoke with my mechanic and he says he needs to spend more time with it, but he mentioned this 'cellanoid' - need to be educating about this. I'd...

    Slipping Transmission?

    Trans slipping? Thanks for responding! I just had a recent death in my family, I've been away but the next day I added a quart of fluid, it hasn't jerked since - how do you like that? It now starts off without jerking and driving in reverse, no jerking or noise anymore!??? I'm still...
