I've seen three or four around here, but that doesn't mean much with all the traffic going through Southern Cal, could be from anywhere in 500 miles. I've never seen a silver one, 1 black, 1 white and the rest reds. When I lived in Montana there were two other reds, one was local with the liscense p...

I had the exact same problem, didn't know what the hell it was. I still don't but I changed oil, plugs, wires and trans fluid/filter and hasn't done it since.

Let me know if the sensor thing helped.

Thats great mileage man, mine is getting about 275 highways and between 180 and 220 street. But something is wrong with it. When it was running like a champ I was getting 350 highway and 300 street.

1 miles = 1.609344 kilometers

so 400 miles = 644 km

350 = 563 km

Wow very similar problem for me, was suspecting the CV's but I get the noise from front AND rear! It usually happens around turns or when braking, though I can't get it to happen consitantly. Hard braking is fine most turns are fine etc. The rear is the really werid one because its louder and sounds...

It still could be the tranny, even with the engine off and in neutral it still has to spin.

But I would still suspect the suspension. It's always possible that your last alignment wasn't done right. Could also be shocks/struts; if ones gone bad enough.

Anyhow good luck.

I'm no expert but I've had similar problems. Try a regular tune-up and trans service, that did it for me. Also could be ball-joints or some other suspension part. If you're doing 50mph, and let off the gas completely does the shudder go away or does it happen only under engine load? I would think th...

Insurance companies are only liable for the value of the car. Value of the car is estimated by comparable vehicle sales located in roughly the same area, options, mileage etc. Having gone through this with much less damage to my car I got only $1000 and I had to bite and claw for it.
