Alero Oldsmobile Clunking when steering

My 2002 Alero is making a clunking sound every time I turn my wheel all the way to the left or all the way to the right and clunks again when i bring the wheel back to the center again.  Is this my axel? Or what else could it be, and is it something simple that I could fix on my own?

I have a 2002 Alero with the exact problem. I have taken it to the dealer where I bought it from...and at cost they replaced the wheel assembly, tie rod ends, transaxle, 2 driveaxles, brakes, rotors, struts, CV Joints, motor mounts, and rack and pinnion...still has the problem. I'll let you know when mine is fixed...if ever it is.

Sounds like a broken tie rod end or ball joint. Either way, the car's unsafe to drive in this condition. have it checked out right away.

Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

Remove/replace power steering pump on a 2002 Olds alero. Works perfect-except whining noise-after I emptied/refilled the sump with new prestone power steering fliud!


Make sure that u get all the air out by turning the steering wheel from left to right.. And most important make sure the power steering fluid is for GM product.
Hope this helps..

When turning steering wheel - either way, clunking sound.


Sounds like you have a bad CV joint, this will make a clunking or clicking noise like you described only when turning, and varies with vehicle speed.

Have it repaired before it breaks and leaves you stranded, or damages anything else.
