    Front Sunspension

    i changed both of the cv joint halfshafts last year. could it really be that? Could be anything, we can't "see" your car over the internet. Check your front Stabilizer Links , if they are worn out , they will make a clunking noise good luck

  3. Hello guys After a week of problems with my 626, it looks that it wont go away. here is the story: While driving my Alternator / water pump belt broke which cause overheating first thought it was the thermostat (did not realize it was the belt that broke until later inspection). after getting help (got boost twice in a 3 block trip, thinking that was my battery) to drop my car at my driveway. So i replaced the Belts , try to start the engine but nothing happen by then the battery was death , try to recharge it but would not hold charge. Try with two diffrent bateries and connected to another car , nothing, could not even heard the starter. Took off the battery and starter to the PartSource store (Canada) is like Autozone in the USA. checked the battery , result was that i need it a new one. check the starter it blew the fuse of the testing computer , so i have to get a new starter also. Got home put in the new starter / battery , and the car start with not problem... when for a drive... came home try to go out again... and would not start again.. dash light will light up fine , press the cluth and try to start it all lights will shut off , no sound from the starter ... check the battery , it was reading like 18V.... weird!!.... anyways .... next day i check the wiring , took off the ignition switch to see if there was a short some where... tested it as per Haynes manual, i found it ok... check all fuses , relays (check them) .... nothing...... yesterday i took off the alternator and took it to be tested, results were that the alternator was good...yeah !.... anyway put it back in and same situation....so i decide to check the electrical again....I check the battery again and it was reading 12.8 V like it supposed to... i checked the volatge from the battery to the fuse box (engine) and surprise the voltage drops to 4 V ....i was like what the hell !!! battery to fuse boxe is like 4 inches apart ... how's that possible ,,,, so i disconnect my amplifer (need to see if it was draining the battery) , same voltage 4V.... so decided to take the + connector apart , it was barely making any contact, file all the dirt away... and ENGINE START AGAIN ... I start and re-start the care for couple of times ...when for a drive and my check engine light went on ......now this morning on my way to work the airbag light is blink twice . Any ideas code this will be?? Thanks

    Axle Problems Or Not?

    Sorry for the late update.. My problem was due to bearing failure, tried to change it myself but could not do it... took it the mechanic... noise is gone..
  9. and it will be more noticable when you turn left or right... I try to do it myself, took everything off, caliper, rotor, steering arm.. but could not take the actual bearing off , is pressed fit , so you will need to take to a mechanic.
