Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
It would be helpful to know what kind of car this is, but generally speaking, and in most cases, these popping noises are associated with trans to axle looseness or axle shafts.
This is driveline related and should be checked on a lift with someone in the car, in the air while doing different drive/shifting tasks while someone on the ground is observing the results of the suggested tasks. The noise will obviously get worse over time, but we need to attack it now so nothing gets ruined because of it.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case we need to chat again about this in the future.
