I had a "what I call a clunk" in the drive train somewhere(mine is an auto) when I moved off from traffic lights/stop sign etc, had Kia mechanics spend lots of time on my car with no positive result. I found on a forum that another sorento owner had this problem which is, the tail shaft slipper spline gets dry and has a very small amount of play. There is a grease nipple to this spline, however this gets grease into part of the spline only. The only way to grease the spline properly is to remove the tail-shaft from the vehicle, clean out the both halves of the spline, grease well by hand and push back together, refit to vehicle. NOTES- when you push the splines back together any excess grease will bleed out of a small hole in the back of the front half of the tail-shaft in the universal joint area, this is normal.Also make sure you mark both halves of the tail-shaft before you slip the splines apart. I have done this twice now at about 30000km intivals (when I felt the clunk again as grease will eventually squash out) I use neverseize lube. Regarding the shudder on takeoff, haven't had that problem and not sure what it could be. Hope the above helps.

2002 olds intrigue shakes while idling with brake on in drive


The cause is too low an idle and engine is starving for fuel so it shakes like that.The thumping sound you hear is most likely just the exhaust being too close to the floor amd bumping against it when in drive with brake on.You said yourself that it stops when you put it in nuetral,well the engine speed goes up when there's no stress on it.With some one holding the brake and it's sitting there thumping,set the idle speed up just enough to make the engine stop rocking that way.

2000 dodge stratus, thump noise increase/decreas while driving,new tires 4,new cv axles,new brakes,new power steering pump installed, but thump sound is still there ?


My thought would be to look at the u joints and drive line. When driving the car and it makes the thumbing sound shift to natural, if the sound stops it is probably in drive line.

1. When I brake to stop, say at a stop light/sign, just as I come to a complete stop, the entire car jerks forward a bit even with my foot on the brake. This happens EVERY time I stop. The jerking/lurching...


Sounds like an automatic transmission problem, specific the clutch. Either a rebuild or a new one. Check the fluid level and smell it to see if there is a strong odor. The collar should be cherry red. If it's brown, it's cooked.

When i come to a stop like at a light or something the car jerks even with foot on brake.


When you say the car jerks even with the footbrake on dose the car try to drive as well or just the engine **** as if its trying to drive when jerks then its the bands and or oil problem in the box as this is the convertor not braking free when down on 5 to 650 RPM.
GET IT CHECKED OUT AT YOUR AUTO BOX PLACE IT WILL ONLY TAKE 1/2 HR AND THE COST OF A NEW G/BOX IS A LOT OF MONEY.
HAVE A GOODDAY.

I replaced the pads on my 2005 Honda Accord. I had


ABS only senses if the wheel is spinning or not.
"Thumping sound" sounds like a bad problem. I've not had thumping sound from my front brakes ever.
I don't know how a caliper could cause thumping.
Is everything installed correctly and do the brakes stop the car??

2005 honda accord noise when breaking (transaxle)


You say you hear the noise when you "slow down". Does this mean you hear the thumping noise when you let off the gas and let the car coast to a stop or only when you are applying the brakes to decellerate?
If you only hear the noise while applying the brakes then I would assume it has something to do with your brakes. The first thing that comes to mind would be rotors that aren't true or warped which could make a thumping sound.

Do you feel any vibrations in your foot when it is applying pressure to the brake pedal? If you do feel a sort of pulsating feeling then it could very well be your brakes making the noise.

I hope I was of some assistance,
