Thumping when accelerating and turning...
This isn't a Honda but I thought some of the problem solvers might have an idea...
A friend has a '99 Camry V6. The car has been well maintained (he's the original owner).
Over the last few months, there's a weird thumping/bumping noise coming from somewhere in front of the driver - maybe right on the other side of the firewall.
It only happens in one situation and can be reproduce at will. Accelerate, turn left, and if you quickly lift of the gas you hear and slight feel the thump/bump. Doesn't happen when braking or accelerating in a straight line.
I'm thinking - turning vehicle, body is flexing, something is secured as tightly as it should be. Maybe a rear engine mount or an exhaust hanger? Because it only happens when turning, I thought maybe CV joint or suspension component but there's non of the typical CV joint clicking and the boot isn't leaking. Maybe a loose strut mount?
Otherwise, the car drives fine - solid, steering is OK (for a 10 year old Camry
), no vibrations or anything else quirky.
Two mechanics and a Toyota dealer can't figure it out.
