Unfortunately...if brakes and tires are fine...usually this is a whell bearing...does the noise get faster and slower as your Malibu goes...? A wheel bearing replacement is about $240. installed with new parts...a qualified mechanic needs to do this repair...hope this helps:)

Noise in stering colum only when i drive staight, if i turn wheel one way or other noise stops


if you are drive straight all the time than that part of is getting worn out. you mite see if the are any type of grease points on the steering
column, the grease in the center or as you stated driving straight it make alot of noise, the grease has broken down and now it is metal on metal or plastic on plastic. where as you turn right or left it picks up a little grease and soon you will start hearing the noise in any direction because the grease is braking down or drying out.

make sure there enough fluid in the steering control box, mite look for a condition fluid.

May need to have the transmission flushed.

the car,run the car and switch gears while someone listens
for the sound for exact location.

On my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 limited slip when i am turning it hops like its in 4wheel drive?(just started doing this) Why?


Could be a front end velocity or universal joint. turn the wheel sharp and jack the vehicle then rotate it forward and back while looking at the front axle and drive shaft. It should turn freely and shouldnt hear any noise or see any movement other than it rotating. Let the vehicle down, turn it sharply the other way and do the same thing, let it down and turn the wheel straight and try it again. Do this with both sides. Physically try to move the drive shaft and axle by hand, up and down, side to side... There should VERY little movement if any at all and you shouldnt hear a noise at all.

With the steering wheel straight if u turn it right or left there is a clunking noise comming from under the car. the power steering fluid was low and i filled it up but the noise is still htere. any...


the drive couplings on the end of the drive shafts are noisy but not worn out so ignore ,make sure the rubber boots are not split and in good condition,if the boots are perished and split then replace them and whilst the coupling is off i always stip then by turning and moving teh cage do teh balls come out then wash in diesel and refit so the balls are in different positions ,repack with grease and then after rubber boot is pushed up the shaft refit the coupling and i always buy some big jubille clip for a chimney pipe from hardware shop and use these instead of them plastic tie things as they always come off allowing dirt back in ,if after cleaning and fitting a new boot they still make a noise just ignore it as its not dangerous or life threatening ,just a pain listerning to it .
