I have a 1997 Avenger 2.5 and I am looking for tires. Also I think the front axles are bad as I hear a click whenever I accelerate or go from drive to reverse. Need advice!!
The car has 131,000 miles but being an ex-mechanic I keep up with the maintenance and the
car runs fine. I believe the axles are bad, even though the boots are not ripped, and when I pull
on the axles they seem fine but whenever I accelerate or go from drive to reverse I hear a
clicking noise. I am not sure if it is the transmission as it is shifting hard when you first
accelerate or if it is the axles. I do not drive the car hard as it is my only vehicle.
I am also looking for a decent set of tires but do not know which ones to get that are not too
expensive. I was looking at a number of brands but the more I look the more confused I get.
Please let me know which brand of tires you recommend and if you feel the axles are the
problem with the car or if it is the transmission.
hi im a mechanic end i work in a axle shop sonds like a axle for the clicking noise check the front & rear transmission month i all so had 1997 avenge & 1995
You might want to check the suspension. The lower ball joints in these cars have a recall on them and are defective. also the automatic transmission in these cars are horrible. the a604 is a picky beast. check your transmission fluid. for tires look into the Continental Xtrmeme Contact DWS. amazing tires, good price, and they are all season.
