My 2006 Saturn Ion 3 is making a clacking and popping noise

Asked by Apr 26, 2016 at 05:30 PM about the 2006 Saturn ION 2 Manual

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I took my 2006 Saturn Ion 3 to a GM dealer and their recommendation is to
replace steering gear (rack and pinion), replace i-shaft. I had a mechanic do
all that was recommended by the GM dealer and it is still making a clacking
and popping noise. My mechanic also replaced the tire rod ends. He did find
that the lower control arms rear bushings are torn. I have not replace that yet,
but will. My car is still popping while turning the wheel side to side while
rolling 10 to 20mph. Can suggest or make any recommendation how to fix
the popping an clacking nose.

Surprised your mechanic didn't hear the noise and fix the issue. Might be the CV joints. Have another mechanic look it over for you to make sure.
