Why Does My Car Make Noise When I Turn?

Service Technician Working Under Vehicle

 

If you are hearing a grinding noise when you drive around Cookeville, you may be a bit concerned. Is it a problem? Did you ruin your car? Well, it could be. Cars age, and over time, they can make new noises and not all of them are good. It’s good to understand what these noises mean, and at what point they need to be checked by a technician at Casey's Frontier Chevrolet Of Livingston to confirm that the noise you heard while turning isn’t the sound of something worse. Learn why your vehicle makes weird sounds, and don’t hesitate to contact us after finding out more.

Why Does My Car Make Noise When I Turn: The Wheel

As you turn the wheel of your car while driving around Cookeville, do you notice a knocking noise or a popping noise? These can actually be considered common car noises when turning, but that doesn’t mean they are benign. Hearing clunking, popping, creaking, squealing, groaning, screeching, or whining are indicative of an issue, and your car should get inspected right away. Most of these noises aren’t serious when they first start, but could become problematic over time. You’ll want to make a service appointment to prevent them from becoming a serious problem.

Other Common Car Noises

  • Creaking, clunking, or popping at low speeds could be worn-out or broken suspension joints.
  • Whining at low speeds seemingly from the engine could be the power steering pump.
  • A crunching noise at high speeds could be the CV joints.
  • Screeching or whining at normal speeds could indicate an issue with the power steering system. This could be repaired easily by topping off the power steering fluid or may require more work. The power steering system includes many hoses, belts, and other materials that can wear out over time.
  • If you hear a clunking noise when you turn, you might have a loose or broken tie rod.
  • If the vehicle is handling poorly, and you hear a knocking noise when you turn, it could be a failing sway bar link.
  • A creaking sound that gets louder over time could be a ball joint problem.
  • Creaking noises could also be the bushing joint in your suspension system.
  • An odd noise paired with a bouncy, loose feel when you drive over bumps in Sparta might be an issue with the struts or shocks.
