Question about 1993 Saturn SC2

1 Answer

My 2002 SC2 is making loud, whirring, almost clunking noise front right when I step on brakes, slow down, or turn. Just had front ends replace and that didn't fix the problem. What else could it be?

A whirring noise is most likley a wheel bearing. The fact that you can make it louder by placing more weight on the that side by turning confirms this. Not sure what you mean by having the front end replaced since this term doesnt apply to this condition.

Clunking noise when turning steering wheel going slow around corner


A lot of these Chrysler Town and Country vans had issues with the front stabilizer bar end links, usually you wont feel them move if you try to move them by hand, but they will make an awful noise clunk noise when turning or going over bumps slowly, i would suggest replacing the end links and that should take car of your clunking issue. Also the front lower control arm bushings separate as well and can cause this noise as well.... but i would replace the end links as a first step and go from there.... Hope this helps..

Black the rear wheels, put the car in neutral with the parking brake on, jack up the front end and spin the tires. Once you locate the source of the noise, you can pull the tire off and check the brake pads and rotors.

Whirring noise from the front of car as you drive.


I would first rule out the possibility of a "rough" tire making the noise. You can move the two front tires to the rear of the vehicle and see if that changes the noise any. If it does, you might have a worn tire that needs replacing or a tire that has worn unevenly and should be rotated and balanced more often....

Good luck..
