SOURCE: 2002 kia optima,,, whining noise that stops when turning left

power steering pump probably went out.. if you can easily get at the belt and are any kind of mechanically inclined, remove the drive belt to the p/s pump and then start the car if the noise is gone then its probably part of the power steering pump

SOURCE: i have what sounds like

sounds as if your brake pads have worn down to the "screechers" These are small
metal clips attached to brake pads that scrape the rotors to alert the driver that
it is time to have the brakes serviced.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: fix kia optima 2008 front suspension noise

If the car had been in my garage with those symptoms I would have put new bushings in with the new struts as a precaution. If you have the strut out.... it's really quite simple and adds about 10 minutes to the job. Quite frankly a car with 7000 miles shouldn't clunk when you turn.

Does it wander as you drive down the road or move sideways on bumps? Not necessarily a lot but just enough to notice, you maybe have to turn the wheel a hair to get back in your lane. If so this would lend support to bad bushings, possibly the struts but also possibly control arms or sway bar. Tie rod ends could do this too, but it would be rare.

When it makes this clunk does the steering wheel jump in your hands? This would suggest a problem in your steering rack or power steering pump. I did a quick check at alldata and didn't see any recalls that would affect this problem.Hope this helps.

The clunking noise is now a grinding noise in the front driver side. I am told that it is a part attached to the steering box component.


Get it to a reputable suspension shop to have it checked out,if it was said a part on the steering then you don't want to risk losing steering when the worn parts break.Speculating it could be tie rods,sway bar links,ball joints,bushings etc etc everything that moves when you hit the bumps.

Front end creaking noise


Have your rack and pinion steering unit checked. Here is a very good video that will help you understand rack and pinion. The creaking noise is likely from the grease in the joints that pivot when you turn your wheels.

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning


Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

Were the top strut bearings changed?

You don't turn the steering wheel, unless
your have the vehicle moving or off the ground

Do you flush the power steering fluid every 3 years,
when you do the trans fluid every 3 years?

Grinding or creaking in 2008 ford fusion front end


Mr.Mangus have you checked at all your front suspension struts,shock absorbers,or lower wishbones with bushing and ball joints? I had recently a diesel ford focus 2007 with similar case and both front wishbones were replaced due to ball joints and bushes and then sent for steering alignment. Vehicle drive excellent. Please check.

Front suspenion. I'm getting a lot of loud creaking when going over bumps and turning corners. I know it's not the C.V. joints. I tried to lube but there are no fitings. Is there a way to lube this...


Dear,

I think the front axles have worned out due to which it makes noise while taking a turn around.

and also get the shockers checked due to which it squeeks while on move.

thanx
