Most likely a bad CV joint (Constant Velocity). The CV joint is a flexible power transfer shaft that sends power from the transmission to the wheels. It has a rubber boot to cover the flexible joint. If the boot rips from old age, water and dirt get in and the joint wears out rather quickly. Take it to a shop for an inspection/estimate.

The front left wheel makes a terrible grinding popping sound when I turn the wheel to the left. It also seems to be driving a little "weird", kind of "mushy" and loose. There is a boot...


That a CV joint you're describing. That boot protects bearing from dirt getting in and grease from getting out. You don't have to hit anything, they split with age, deteriorate and sometimes actually twist on shaft and gives the appearance like you smacked something. Replace or have someone replace CV joint and boot on that wheel and you should be good to go.

There is a popping sound coming from the front end of my car when I accelerate but only when my car is moving, not when it is parked. Any ideas?


Sounds like your half shafts are going bad. Does it make this noise when turning left or right? If it does your half shafts have gone bad.

My anti lock brake light started coming on when I took left hand turns. It is now coming on when I take left and right turns, every now and then the brakes are not at there full capacity as the brake petal...


This sounds like your cv boots when you take a turn do you hear a clicking sound?. If so that is what it is. If thats the case I would get them repacked soon as possible if not you will have to replace the whole boot or maybe cheaper to replace the whole axle. With your breaks going to the 1/2 way to the floor you either need the brakes bleed or need new brakes. But with you saying they feel grindy you probably need new brakes. Hope this helps.
