Just bought a ford ba wagon and when you do a hard turn like driving in your driveway or turning in a street it makes a loud creaking noise coming for the front


check the strut or top strut bearing for failure
the creaking noise can be from the spring being wound up from turning as the bearing has seized
have it inspected by a specialist suspension shop

Noise and rough pedaling from main crank


not knowing if this is a single speed or multispeed bike, this could be several different things and a proper analysis by a mechanic at your local bike shop is what is needed.
It could be that the chain is too tight, it could be the derailleurs are out of adjustment and the chain is skipping between gears or rubbing on the derailleurs. It could be a bottom bracket out of adjustment and the bearings are loose and making the noise. It could be a loose bottom bracket shell in an aluminum frame make creaking noises.

When pressing gas pedal car makes a loud rating noise


use 2 persons to find location.
like real estate. Location-location-location...
same deal, nothing else matters. guessing is total waste of man power and cash.
the first test is to get it to make noise, parked. with brakes hard set
and in drive (A/T or m/t you never said) or in any GEAR.
that be first. if you can , then its 100 x easier to find,.

Creaking sound when applied lots of torque


This is probably due to a loose pedal crank arm. The cranks are attached to an axle (bottom bracket spindle) by means of a tapered fit and a nut or bolt. Just Google "How to tighten crank arm"
Good luck.

When pedaling starts off making squeaking sound but now it is very loud with cracking and popping.


Pedal or bottom bracket bearings need a look. The web has many resources for identifying noises on a bike. Just search for a few key words. For example "bicycle pedal loud cracking and popping"

One resource...

I have a jamis cross country 2.0 bike. the bottom bracket creaks. not sure why.


One or both of your crank arms are probably loose. Try pulling and pushing (pretty hard) on the pedal end of the crank arm (toward the bike and away from the bike) If it's loose, it will be apparent. The arbor of the bottom bracket is usually square on the ends, and this is tapered (the square is bigger closest to the bike) You just need the right size wrench to tighten the nut that holds the crank arm onto the bottom bracket arbor.

Fitted tiagra triple to cannondale caad9 frame. bottom bracket creaking


There are many possible causes for the noise you're hearing, but the most common source of creaks is loose crank arms.

You might be able to eliminate the sound by tightening the crank arms on the bottom bracket spindle. However, I would recommend removing both crank arms from the spindle and reinstalling them after lubricating the surfaces where the spindle and crank arm meet as well as the crank arm bolts. Use a high quality grease (not oil, such as Triflow) or anti-seize compound.

Torque the crank arm bolts to the factory spec. Crank arms bolts can take a lot of torque -- about 300 ft/lbs. Most people don't have a torque wrench, so you can "guesstimate" this by applying about 50 lbs of force on the end of a 6" long wrench.

Other possibilities are loose chainrings (check each bolt where they are attached to the crank), pedals (lubricate/service bearings), bottom bracket (check it is properly torqued), chain (look for tight links), derailleur idler gear, crack in frame.
