My 1993 850 has a pulsation in the sterring while in a turn. The feeling is like the pump is pulsating.

Hi, this is usually caused by a worn out CV joint on one or both axles. Check to see if the boots are torn open. There are 2 boots on each axle. If they are torn, the joint is likely to be worn out or will soon wear out. Replace any axle with a torn boot. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Ford fusion front end noise when doing tight three point turn or manovers

popping noise when turning is usually caused by worn CV joints. Inspect CV boots for tears. Torn boot will allow dust to get in and cause wear. If boot is torn, replace CV joint or entire shaft (usually easier). If boot is not torn, grab shaft next to each CV joint and see how much movement you can cause in the joint. If one CV moves more than the other three, that one is probably bad.

Cv boots torn do I need to replace axels

no but it is easier to replace the whole axle, and fairly cost effective considering the amount of work and the special tools to make the job of replacing the boots easier (slidehammer with attachment etc.) and very messy.
If the inside boots are torn take a close look at your motor mounts. they could be bad and cause the inner boots to tear.

When i turn left i hear a knocking sound from my steering and i also can feel it when im pressing on the brake

What year and how many miles on the Kia? I suspect your axle boot is torn. This is a rubber boot that goes around the axle to protect it from dirt, water, and crud it would be exposed to when driving. As the car ages, the rubber will crack and split, allowing road debris to enter the axle assembly. When this happens it isn't long before the axle must be replaced. If you can look under the car at the center of the front wheel, check the boot for damage, splits, cracks, etc. You may see a lot of grease in that area, another sign the rubber boot has been torn, and axle grease is leaking out and being spread around. Have it checked soon, as the other side is either about to go, of already is beginning to. I just replaced the axles in my 92 Honda w/ rebuilt axles for only $50 each, but there is a lot of labor involved in changing them, so it isn't a cheap fix. Let me know what you find in your inspection, but it does sound like a bad axle due to a torn boot. coountrycurt0
