2004 S4 Strange Sound

Hey Guys, I've noticed lately a moaning sound coming from the front of my car. As i take turns, mostly left, at low speeds, there is a moaning sound coming from the front. My power steering fluid is full and clean, so i'm pretty sure its not that. I've also noticed it makes the sound when i'm slowing driving on an incline. Any Ideas?

Will the struts make a moaning sound if they are going bad?


No they will not....the only thing that is noticeable when the struts **** out is that particular side will botttom out on a dip or speed bump...making a thud noise as the chassis hits the frame or very bad crunchy/squeaking noise....but not a moan.

Where is the sound sound like it is coming from or what or how are you driving when you hear this?

Jeep makes a whining sound when I turn left sometimes. Doesn't do it when turning right ever and only seems to do it when driving forward. Only happens at low speeds and doesn't seem to affect...


It MAY,,,,,, be the start of a power steering pump problem.Just maybe.The pumps can moan and groan without leaking,so keep an eye on it.Hope this helps.

Power steering moaning sound during turning left or right


This is most probably due to low powerstering fluid in the system, you can simply top it up and have the steering rack pipes and pump checked for leaks.

Moaning noise reversing while turning wheel to left


The moan is caused by the brakes and the vibration is due to a defective part on the front end a tie rod end or drag link. If you want more information I would be glad to assist but have to run to work so post here and I will give it a shot tonight when I get home.

Moaning noise when I turn left or right in my 2002 VW Passat


Your power steering pump has gone bad. Consider replacing it. I had the same problem before.

It moans when u turn at a stand still but rolls freely when in motion?

Scraping sound at very low speed (5MPH)


I have personally seen a lot of wheel bearings go bad on these vehicles. If you hear the noise get more pronounced when turning left, the right front (passenger side) bearing is most likely the culprit- if turning right, it would be the left front (driver side) bearing.

Hope this is helpful!!
