I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
I presume that the right driveshaft was replaced correct? let me ask you this if standing still and turning do you hear the noise like a spring coiling up and then releasing?
let me ask some more please! now was there any other engine work done to the vehicle before this started? is this noise a deep noise or tinny?
ok look at the mount at the right side at the timing belt area does the bolts look backed out where the engine is sagged down or the mount at the engine looks crooked?
ok not loose but maybe bolted together cocked is what im wondering? pic of the mount will help me see what you are seeing?
lost electricity !!! sorry . the engine is pushed too much towards the right need to center the bolt head more . you see the witness mark where the bolt was tigtened before ? it needs to be at that position and then road test again!!!
let me know
the 2 where the mount of the body to the engine in the pic!!
right means passenger side!
trust me it will go the opposite way because you are making more space between the frame rail and the engine!!!
