Question about 1991 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

91 Nissan Torreno has a metal snapping noise when turning

Whenever I turn to the right I will get a metal crack, only one time, then go straight for a bit and then turn left, the same thing.
I have replaced just about everything I can think of as for as steering and shocks, all bushings, tie-rods, balljoints ect. I was woundering i you might have some ideas of what it might be.

Thank you for your help.

Noise in stering colum only when i drive staight, if i turn wheel one way or other noise stops


if you are drive straight all the time than that part of is getting worn out. you mite see if the are any type of grease points on the steering
column, the grease in the center or as you stated driving straight it make alot of noise, the grease has broken down and now it is metal on metal or plastic on plastic. where as you turn right or left it picks up a little grease and soon you will start hearing the noise in any direction because the grease is braking down or drying out.

make sure there enough fluid in the steering control box, mite look for a condition fluid.

Metallic clicking noise from wheel area when turning left.


This noise sounds like one of the constant velocity joints in the half shaft. The joint is probably dry or worn out and needs to be replaced.

09 Jeep Patriot, metal grinding noise when turning left only


It is most likely the drivers side front wheel bearing. These are an easy fix for a mechanic, or if you mechanically inclined you could try it yourself (2 hour max job) and part runs around 50-70 bucks.

Whenever I drive I continue to hear a loud roaring noise. Is this wheel bearing problem or is it something else


Quite often it is a bad wheel bearing, a lot of chevy's are notorious for them. A wheel bearing will usually create a growling type noise that is more prominent at around 40-60MPH. If its a wheel bearing you should notice a change in pitch when turning in one direction, for example if you have a bad right side wheel bearing it will be noisy driving straight ahead, then get louder when turning LEFT. If you turn right the noise softens. The weight distribution of the front end will be greater on the right side when turning left. Of course the works in the opposite direction. If the noise remains constant going straight and turning it could be a bad tire. Visually check the tire for pressure and bulges in the side wall. You didn't mention what type or model vehicle you have, because in some cases the rear wheel bearing could be causing the noise.
