I inherited a 2007 Mazda CX-7 from my family in good condition. About a week ago due to low tire pressure, I lost control of the car on the LIE taking a turn and ended up rolling over a bumpy highway divider, spinning the car, and blew out both of my back tires. I rode the car on the flat tires about 1500-2000 feet to the highway exit where there was luckily a Mavis discount tire, and they replaced both the tires. Everything seems to work perfectly, except for a loud creaking/clicking noise coming from the rear left tire about once per rotation. It seems to be mostly when the car turns to the right. I don’t know much about cars, but I don’t think its a CV joint since its a FWD car and correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t these only in the front? What else could this clicking noise be? Could the wheel be damaged, or could it be the rotor/brakes?
I just changed my distributor cap.and rotor today as well as the spark plugs and spark plug wires. I also attempted to change the fuel filter but only the top fuel line would crack. The bottom nut wouldn't bulge so I stopped trying because I didn't want to cause any damage to the fuel lines. Fuel came out of the top fuel filter end and the end that connects to the engine so I know the engine is getting fuel. I also tried to get spark by putting a new spark plug into the wire end that goes down the spark plug hole and put it on metal and tried to crank and I didn't see any spark. I didn't touch anything on the distributor besides the cap and rotor. I'm really stumped as to why it won't start and apparently i'm not getting spark. Anybody have any ideas what could be the issue? The engine cranks but wont start. The car is a 1998 honda civic lx and the car started before i attempted to do regular matienence but it cranked longer than it should and idled hard before i had to give it gas to stay on. Thats why i even tried changing the stuff mentioned above in the first place. Thanks in advance for any advice.
