Sounds like it may have an exhaust leak, rusted pipe or gasket that has rotted out, lift car off ground and look at the exhaust system and the power steering may be low on fluid. Hope this answered you questions.

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets


You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

When driving mainly when you let off the accelerator it makes a deep roaring sound and turning to the left causes severe vibration in the steering wheel.


Rear differential fluid deterioration causes a moan/vibration noise when turning left or right. Try flushing the rear diff with honda dual pump fluid and see what happens. As far as the roaring sound on deceleration this could be in the Transmision or Transfer case. I would go to your local Honda dealer and have a qualified technician go on a test drive with you. Some noises can be difficult to diagnose.

My scooter makes wierd humming noises


This sounds like (passing) resonance -- a natural phenomenon. You might be able to eliminate it by just tightening some bolts in the exhaust system -- or, it may never go away, or it may stop of its own accord.

Moaning noise in steering column


The probably lubed the intermediat shaft conenction. The loud poping noise could be from them not sitting the boot back correctly. Inspect your boot. As for the moaning noise Only thing I can think of is a hydraulic noise.

1994 Integra RS front end noise?


Without hearing noises first hand it is very hard to diagnose.

Things to check from the description you gave:

- Heatshields/Exhaust
- Thow-out bearings will make noise depending on the clutch pedal being engaged/disengaged. The noise will come and go as you move the pedal in or release it.

I would rule out the CV joints if the noise happens while moving straight. CV joints will click while turning when they go bad.
