This is caused by deterioration of the Fluid in the rear differential of the car. This occurs when the rear end is opened at its extremes at first and will progressively get worse to the point where it will make the noise all the time while driving. First the fluid in the rear end needs to be changed, and replaced with the appropriate Honda fluid (either vtm 4 fluid or dual pump fluid depending on model) if the doesnt immediatley fix the problem, there is a burnish procedure that your local honda dealer can perform for you which involves changing the fluid and cleaning the clutches inside the rear diff. Good luck!

Why is the steering making a moaning sound on 1991 volkswagen westfalia ?


Groaning in the column itself could be the column bearings, or perhaps the horn contacts, although they make more of a scraping sound. A little lube sprayed between the steering wheel and column may help that. If you're referring to noise in the steering itself, sometimes the front upper control arm bushings groan when they're worn out. Or power steering fluid loss due to leakage from rotted power steering lines under the van. Trying to address all that I can think of, but your question is rather vague.

2007 VW Jetta (wolfsberg). It's making grinding


It sounds like the inner liner of one of your wheel wells has come loose and is touching the wheel. This would make a sound while moving, but not while stopped. Look inside your wheel wells for the plastic lining that goes all the way around the tire. Look for wear signs. It may even be a hole by now. If you see wear, tug on that wheel well liner to see if it is loose. If so, get replacement screws to hold it in place.

That would explain rumble sounds, high pitched sounds, changing sound when hitting bumps. And it would not affect any dynamics.

The creaking and groaning when car is turned off is a different animal. Possibly something to do with A/C which is depressuring after the car is turned off. To determine if that is the case, see if it makes the same sounds if you've been driving with the A/C off? If not, it's A/C related.

2005 saturn vue, have rubbing sound when turning steering wheel at low speeds,occurs when backing up or going foward


I would start by inspecting the tire and wheel well for any physical contact. Outside of that, is sounds like a wheel bearing. A failing wheel bearing or a bearing with a flat spot will groan and sometimes mimic the sound of mud tires. A flat spot can be causes by even a slight impact the the wheel.

2002 buick rendezvous groans when turning


The fluid in the versa trak AWD in the rear is old and needs to be drained and refilled. After you drain and refill it, make a bunch of sharp left and right hand turns, then drive it for 10 minutes. Drain and refill it for the second time and problem solved. Use only versa trak fluid available at any GM dealership. There is TSB on this now at the Buick dealership.

Sounds like the power steering pump failing. If it seems to be worse when you turn the wheel at a stop, it is time for a new p/s pump.
