I went to change the rear spark plugs on a 2001 Pontiac grand Prix 3.8l gt. I used a ratchet strap to support the engine (to gain more access to the back of the engine) as I removed the engine mount brackets. Upon completion, I went to release the ratchet strap & it went completely, allowing the engine to rest on its own with no support. Everything was assembled back in place. Motor doesn't shake, vibrate, or any issues there. Now when I drive (turn and brake), I have a grinding, clunking type sound coming from the front driver and passenger side
Thank you for writing in. It is impossible to tell what may have happened when the engine dropped without being able to inspect the vehicle. Based on the information you gave, it sounds likely that something may have broken as the engine fell into place. You will want to inspect the front steering and suspension linkage. It would have taken the majority of the force when the engine dropped. Also make sure that the engine isn't still resting on or touching something it shouldn't be. Only further inspection will tell. Good luck!
