Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Popping sound from Chrysler Pacifica

Whenever I am turning or steering my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica, I hear a popping sound. It makes no noise when driving down the road, but when I turn the steering wheel, I begin to hear a popping sound. What could this be? I want to take it to be repaired, but would like to know what it could possibly be before I take it in. What does it generally cost to fix this problem?

It is called a clockspring.
the other thing to check is that the rear part of the steering wheel is clearing the column shroud properly.
call a few places in your area and how much it is to change the clockspring.

Why is my car making a popping noise in the front end on the right side..........

if the popping sound occurs when going over bumps, you may want to have the stabilizer links checked for looseness.

Whenever i turn my wheels to the left or right i hear a squeeking noise as well as a popping sound coming from the front end area,whether im in motion or not?what could be the problem?

check your power steering fluid -- if that is low, your pump will make funny noises like that. If it is not that, have the pump itself checked out. If not that ... it might be something more major than that (but most steering parts won't squeak and pop unless they are VERY damaged ... if you are still able to turn the car reliably, it's probably the fluid or the pump.

My chrysler pacifica has motor mount problems. I bought a 2004 pacifica and every time I stop hard you hear this popping, the mechanic said he repaired it but it still makes the popping sound

check if the struts are mounted well because sometime when they lose that rubber top They keep the car do that popping. Jack the car side by side or both and and try to shake the wheel with your hands while you're looking at the struts on top and see if there is any paly. Do that on both sides if they are ok, then check again your Motor mounts.
