Ok I have 2 problems and I need help finding out what they are.
1. When I go in reverse and turn to the left or right, I can hear a popping noise coming from the front of the car. But it only does it when I am going reverse.
2. Whenever I press on the gas I hear a rattling noise that sounds like its coming from the back of the car, somewhere in the exhaust area. But it only makes that noise when I start taking off, when I already have speed the noise goes away. It makes like a "pebble shaking in pipes" noise, if that makes any sence.

Help anyone please.

And thanks vortex for helping me out with my oil leak problem http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

^HaHa^ My thoughts exactly. Didnt even have to read the entire sentence for both of those.
Good luck. Cheap fixes. Ball joint ($50 +- if you can find someone to press it for you for free) and heat sheild =useless.

Control arm bushings and a catalytic converter that's falling apart on the inside are other things to look at too.
