Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix
Im having a clicking noise when turning left. went to get a axle thinking that was it but when I parked with the driver side down hill and it in park it was making the noise. when driving straight or taking left turn no noise. what can it be?
I concur with cwradio73 the first answer, if you are not handy with tools then pay someone, you will do more damage than good.

The CV joints have worn out on car. They can be replaced I would do both left an right if you do, one is not far behind the other. Common complaint you have. If you do it yourself make sure you have all the tools. Really should have a mechanic do the job. Sometimes on older cars things get stuck an difficult to remove. Some special tools are needed at times. But its a common on front wheel drive cars

If you have stock sized tires on it.. check the brakes.. also look for loose fender skirting near the wheel as a helper turns the wheel maxxed out to the right.. Lemmie know, Thanx

This is a damaged torque converter and you may have a blown shift solenoid as well. check the fluid level. i suspect major torque converter damage.

SOURCE: Clicking while turning
Have you been the one doing the work if not fire your mechanic. It sounds to me like a wheel bearing.
to check jack up the front wheels , leave the tires on, then grab teh tire move the wheel up/down then left/right then in/out if it moves in any of these directions you got a problem in and out is the bearing, left to right a steering componant, up down ball joint general slop is either a CV joint or the wheel bearing again.
If that is all good on both sides then is may be teh trransmission has an issue get it to a shop for a look. hope this helps
