Thumping Sound when I accelerate

Asked by Mar 29, 2010 at 05:25 PM about the 2008 Nissan Quest SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just purchased a Quest and I have noticed a weird thumping noise.  When braking the brakes work fine; However, when I accelerate I hear a loud thump.  It sounds like it's coming from the front drivers side, but I am not sure.  I was thinking maybe a bad rotor or caliper, then I also thought maybe a driveshaft related problem.  Does anyone have any Ideas?  Again, I only hear it when I am at a stop light and take off.  Thanks!

perhaps the drive shaft is not lined up properly or some warped rotors

Yep - Joren, you were correct! I just took it to Carmax who said it is the Engine Mount. They are sending it over to the Nissan dealership today - I hope it is something they have the parts for and can fix in one day! Thank you for your insight! =)
