Noise when turning the steering wheel

When I turn my steering wheel, it makes a lot of noise in the tire area. Can anyone tell me what this might be?

    It's kind of like a groan. I'll check the power steering fluid and see if that could be it. It almost sounds like the tires don't want to turn.

    I wouldn't really say it's like a typical power steering whine, it's more like a deep groaning sound down near the tires, like the tires don't want to turn, but they still do.

    this sounds like a problem that needs to go to a shop for diagnosis ASAP.

  • Zachary Kloefkorn May 11, 2010

    is it more of a whining type noise or a popping and clunking?

Sounds like a Power Steering Whine to me. Simply check your power steering fluid. If it is low, there is a leak somewhere. If not it's possible the pump may be on it's way out.

There is a noise coming from the front left wheel when the vehicle is in motion. It seems to speed up & slow down with the speed the vehicle is traveling. I can't tell what it is. If it's not brakes or a...


Another problem is the CV universal joint going to the wheel. this is inside a rubber boot to protect the constant velocity universal joint and maybe the boot has been damaged and allowed water/dirt inside. Find a large open parking lot and make a tight figure eight with the steering wheel all the way over and listen to see if the noise is louder. locking the steering wheel hard over turning left and then hard over turning right and if the noise is louder then your CV joint is bad. A squealing scraping noise could be worn out brake pads allowing the small L shaped metal tab to rub on the brake rotor causing the noise too. Look at the pad, the should be very thick riding against the brake rotor. You should be able to see the L bracket and if it is against the brake rotor, new brake pads are needed. A grinding kind of noise that changes its sound when you make small turns like avoiding pot holes could be coming from a bad wheel bearing. Jack that wheel off the ground and then grab the top and bottom of the tire and see if it wiggles on the axel. There should be no play at all if the wheel bearing is good. Regards, Dennis

What is causing the front end noise while in a hard turn (left or right) on my 2004 Toyota Sequoia?


The power steering pump capacity on some motor vehicles is unable to sustain full flow for more than a few seconds which could account for the noise which is the pump 'cavitating'. You might check the power steering reservoir fluid level in any case and read your car handbook for any warnings. I once owned a Mitsubishi Magna which had this limitation.

Do you have 4 wheel drive ? If you do you "could " have a problem with the transfer case. The noise you describe is indicative of transfer case issues.

this might help:
Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

Humming noise from front drivers side tire, is it the tie rod? how do I fix?


hello
most of the time when there is a humming noise other then a brake noise you have a wheel bearing bad the best way to tell if it is a wheel bearing making noise is while you are driving down the road and the vehicle is making the noise slightly turn the steering wheel left to right if the noise changes at all replace the wheel bearings gm cars are notorious for wheel bearing
good luck chris

I had this same problem and the dealer could not reproduce the noise when I would take it in to get looked at. (during the day when the temperature was warm) So I decided to leave it over night and they test drove it in the morning when the temperature was cold and they heard the noise. It ended up bing the steering rack.

Check the Brakes first. Are the pads worn down to metal. Is the Caliper Stuck (open)?
Raise and Support the Front and Rear (because of AWD) of the vehicle.
Remove the left front tire. Make sure the Parking Brake is engaged. Place the lug nuts back on the lug studs. Place the Vehicle in Neutral. Turn the wheel (without the tire on) and listen for where the noise is coming from. A bad bearing will feel rough (not smooth) and sound 'crackly' when trying to turn the one wheel. Make sure it is not from the CVJ.
If not smooth: Remove and Replace the wheel bearing. And yes you can do it yourself saving you about $150-$200 dollars. It is a bolt-on (4 bolts) bearing. Bolt Heads should be on the back side of the steering knuckle.
Remove the Brake Caliper, Caliper Brace, and Rotor.
Remove the 4-bolts (turn the wheels left and right to better access these bolt heads) and slip the bearing off the Axle. You may have to hit the bearing to loosen it.

Screeching noise


If your C/V joint is going bad it will make a nasty clicking sound and get louder the longer you leave it unattended.If this noise went away it could have been something stuck it the moving area of your wheel and just worked itself out.Keep an ear out for the noise to return,it it dosen't come back be happy.

Noise in front wheel how do i know its the wheel bearing?


if the tires are not rough or cupped then it would be a bearing. If you steer right and it gets louder, 90% of the time it is the left one . Turning right puts more vehicle weight to the left. if it gets louder turning to left it is the right bearing. Tire noise wont change a lot when turning.
