1995 Plymouth Voyager

Yes I have a 95 Plymouth Voyager and when I turn to the right or just corner to the right I hear a clicking noise down near the wheel. When I turn to left or going straight I don't hear it. It has a 3.0 engine. It has 90,000 miles on it. Does anyone know what this could be, should I take and get it check right away and what would be cost to get fixed it you know what is wrong with it ????

Likely a CV joint gone bad. Best bet is to replace the whole axle with a rebuilt unit from the parts store.

Are you talking about replacing the whole front axle ??? If so will that be very expensive ?? Why not just replace the CV Joint ? Just like to know for info so when I go to get it fixed ?? Thanks

Yup, the whole axle. They run about 100 to 150 a side. A CV joint runs about 60 bucks or so, and it's a lot more labor to do. In the end, a rebuilt axle is a better choice. I believe even Mopar/Chrysler has them now.

it could be a bunch of things, as easy as a partially broken hubcap(i didn't believe it until i saw it)just remove it and see if it's quiet

also could be the axle if it is a constant click-click-click

if it is a one time click/clunk when the vehicle's weight shifts, it could possibly be a ball joint, tie-rod, power steering rack, sway bar bushing, motor mount, loose control arm or even a wheel bearing, or loose rim

does resting your foot lightly on the brake pedal make the noise 'not' happen when turning to normally make it happen, that usually leads to a broken/missing anti-rattle clip (appropriately named!)on the brake pads

it's tough to fix a noise based on a description, it's usually best to have a trained ear listen to it for you

I agree with both... Most likely an axle.. Take a peek under the van, inside the tire (where the axle goes through) You'll see the rubber cv boot (outer). If the boot is ripped/torn, then it's a pretty safe bet. If you're still not sure, have a tech take a look for you.
As for a boot versus and axle, I recommend the axle.. You can replace a boot, get a warranty on the boot, and still have a 90,000 mile axle in there, or replace the whole axle and have a new warrantied item with 0 miles..In my book, the little extra cost of an axle out-weighs the 90,000 miles...
