2001 Kia Rio. Noise when turning to the right

The noise is only when I turn to the right, not the left, but it is a hum not a click like a cv joint. Could it be the power steering pump?

If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?


cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

Cv joint or wheel bearing noise? 2008 Kia Rio sx. Grinding noise when turning.


Most likely a bearing. With the wheel on, raise that side off the ground and see if you can wiggle the wheel,place one hand on the right side at at the three oclock position and the other at the nine oclock position, press with one hand and pull with the other and see if it moves. If you can rock it in that manner then it is the bearing. Also be advised that you should replace them on both sides if you do one, do the other. Then get it aligned. IF it is a cv joint the test is almost the same except try to twist the tire to the front and back, Check for excess motion and clicking or other sounds.

When you turn to the right there is a noise coming from the left front wheel


Have the CV joints replaced by your vehicle maintenance center. With CV joints the noise nearly allways comes from the opposite side that the one that you are turning to. Turn right, noise, Left side CV joint to be replaced.
Don't replace only the one side but have both replaced

Grinding noise in 2001 cavalier 2.2 engine replaced left front hub noise is still there. how difficult to replace left cv joint?


If you still think the noise is coming from the left side CV joint it would be more advisable to replace the entire axle as an assembly. For the time and effort it takes, you can usually get a rebuilt axle assembly for only a few dollars more than the CV joint and the boot required to repair one. You will need a large axle nut socket (usually 30 - 32mm) to remove the axle nut. The lower ball joint and tie rod will need to be separated along with the brake caliper and rotor, from the spindle. I would recheck the grinding noise before doing it. A lot of wheel bearings are mistakenly diagnosed to the wrong side. If the noise is loudest when turning left, most people would assume the left side wheel bearing is at fault. However if the noise is loudest turning left it indicates the right side wheel bearing is most likely at fault. Due to the weight distribution of the front end, turning left the weight all transfers to the right side, loading that bearing. Make sure thats not the case before tackling an axle.

I get a loud humming sound when my 06 volvo s40 is moving straight or to the left. Could this be the wheel bearings or the cv boot?


I would say it's the bearing because the CV joints will usually make a clicking noise when turning right or left........Hope this helps.

My 2003 chevy malibu makes a clicking noise when i turn right or left. What could that be?


A clicking noise heard especially while making a turn is most likely a CV (constant Velocity) drive axle(s) that is worn out, and if the CV boots are torn and dirt has been getting into the drive axle CV joint, then replace the CV drive axle assembly and do not have the drive axle re-built or re-booted, especially when you can purchase a complete new CV axle assembly for under $60.00 and here is a link to check one out.

"Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds


That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

Loud clicking noise when 4wd is engaged on left wheel when turnin


Check your cv (constant velocity joint) , It may have a big clearance which is the source of the noise when turning left or right and when 4wd is engage. Juts like front wheel drive cars, if the cv joint is with clearance it will tend to sound in the left or right turns. It is not exactly clicking sound , nmore like knocking sound , low in pitch, but not heavy.
