Q: When I step on the gas I hear a noise on the left rear.

asked by on

We took the car to the deal to fix the problem. We bough it new in 04. The dealer had us replaced the rear upper control arm and the transmission lifted. We also replaced shocks. However, we still hear and can feel a tug on the gas everything we driving and place our foot on the gas.

My car has 71600 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
