Re: noise from the rear of my 97 crv when turning left...
Does the noise have any sort of metallic sound to it? I had a '97 CR-V and when I turned hard right or left it would slighty bind the exhaust sytem. Just enough over time to cause the spot welds on the heat shield over the resonator (the "muffler" behind the catalyst) to fail. When I'd turn sharp, the heat shield would lift slightly due to the failed welds and vibrate against the resonator. Took a bit of head scratching to find this one.

ok does noise change when turning left or right if not its not a wheel bearing next try putting in neutral at 55 does noise change what you are looking for these is pinion and carrier bearings in differential the noise can be coming from several places have you checked all your fluid levels front and rear diffs and transfer case also check fluid condition also check for metal in fluids if you stick finger or paper towel in and if you see metal you will know where your noise is coming from
check you power steering fluid level, little black cap under hood look in front of engine down around fan belt Chevy or GMC usually on left side. if fluid level is OK the possibly you need a new power steering pump
WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.
YOU should find that if you let off the turn a bit and not turn on hard full lock,, now do this stopped and someone sitting in the drivers seat and bonnet open and turning the steering wheel with engine running in idle
if the noise goes and the shuddering goes then its the powered steering pump is either low in fluid or airrating or if belt driven then see if belt is trying to stop on full lock and if it is then try a new belt or other wise its the pump faulty.
if gets low definitely a leak foam is pump mixing fluid with air roar is pump cavitation check lines or pump for leak keep fluid at recommended level air bound unit can cause steering difficulty and or failure if need have trained mech look into problem
from a local tyre and honda dealers, a growing noise at the back were caused by tyres profiles. According to them, CRV's come standards with certain brand ( Goodyear i think) and with certain size and certain profiles, so if you have got different ones at the back, it would create that noise. I've got myself honda crv 2005. hope its helpful.
I forgot to ask if the noise was front or rear and stationary or moving so I will cover both.
If the noise is while the truck is stationary and the noise is from the front I would have to say the power steering pump. I have been changing several lately for similar concerns.
As far as the rear if the noise happens while making sharp turns and makes a whirring/growling noise while in motion its the rear differntial. What you can do yourself to be sure is find an open lot and drive in rather tight circles for about a minute, then noise should stop. This action flushes the clutch disks and stops the noise. If the noise goes away you will need to do a rear diff flush.
The fluid is very expensive so be sure this is your problem first.
In order to do the flush drive in tight circles for 5 minutes in each direction and then drain and fill the rear diff with the new Versatrak fluid.
