Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This sound is common on all cars. This is usually caused by a worn out timing belt or chain. You may need to replace them including the tensioner to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Ok so it is either your tyre or tire if your american, or the rubber boot on the cv joint just look under the car it should be quite obvious, if it is neither of these things let me know and we will get more detailed but we will sort it with some effort. let me know how you go and if i am right vote.
