Q: Kicking sound in Reverse

asked by on

Every time I reverse, I hear a kicking sound.

It sounds like you are having a problem with a motor or transmission mount, allowing the engine to move when you are in reverse. The kicking sound may be the engine hitting the hood or the firewall. I would recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home to determine the source and cause of the kicking sound, and recommend the best path to repair.
