My Car Makes a Noise When I Turn

There are many ways to answer the question, “Why does my car make a noise when I turn?” Most noises are not a serious problem when they first start, but if they get worse with time, you probably want to make a service appointment and get your car checked out.

Common Car Noises When You Turn the Wheel

There can be many reasons your car is making noise, but here is a list of common car noises you might hear in your daily travels around Hudson:

  • A crunching noise at high speeds could be the CV joints.
  • Creaking, clunking, or popping at low speeds can come from worn-out or broken suspension joints.
  • Screeching or whining at normal speeds could indicate an issue with the power steering system. These can be easy repairs like topping off the power steering fluid, or more work is needed. The power steering system includes many hoses, belts, and other materials that can wear out over time.
  • A whining at low speeds that seems to come from the engine could be the power steering pump.
  • If your car is handling poorly, and you hear a knocking noise when you turn, it could be a failing sway bar link.
  • If you hear a clunking noise when you turn, you might have a loose or broken tie rod.
  • An odd noise paired with a bouncy, loose feel when you drive over bumps in Clarksville might be an issue with the struts or shocks.
  • A creaking sound that gets louder over time could be a ball joint problem.
  • Another source of creaking noises could be the bushing joint in your suspension system.
