Why Is My Car Noisy When Going Through Turns?

A good rule of thumb is that you should never ignore unusual noises that your car makes. As your vehicle ages, your vehicle will work harder and emit odd sounds, and they sometimes spell trouble. Depending on the nature of the sound, such as when it occurs, can tell what the issue could be. Read on to learn what could be behind your noisy turns.

When your ride is in good working order, you shouldn't hear any noises as you travel. If you are experiencing loud turns, read on to learn what could be the culprit.

Reasons Why Your Car Is Noisy When Going Through Turns

  • Suspension Joints: Creaking and clunking are typical sounds that worn suspension parts will make during turns at low speeds.
  • Struts and Shocks: Often controlling your vehicle over bumps and patches in the road, your shocks and struts can make noises once they're no longer effective.
  • Power Steering Pump: Another common problem behind loud turns is a failing power steering pump. It can often be described as a whining noise.
  • CV Joints: If you turn the steering wheel at high speeds and it emits a loud noise, your CV joints are likely the problem behind it.
  • Low Power Steering Fluid: If you hear a piercing screech or whine as you make turns, it may be due to excess friction within the power steering system. Sometimes a little extra fluid is all that is required to stop this disruptive noise.
  • Tie Rods: A loose or damaged tie rod will emit a clunking sound.
  • Ball Joints: If you overhear creaking that gets louder over time, the culprit may be a faulty ball joint.

Have been going to Lex Brodie's for tire and alignment work for over 40 years and they have been outstanding. Sure, I've experienced a few "quirks" with them, but that also happens with any other best other shops taking care of them in good order.

Wonderful, quick service. My low tire pressure light came on while driving to work downtown. I was able to make an appointment to drop off my car at lunch and picked it up after work. No charge for checking my tires and the employees were extremely friendly and efficient even though they were busy.

Yelp: Jack and the girls at the front took really good care of me and my mom. They are professional and probably one of the most honest mechanic shops I have been to. You can tell they really want to make their customers happy and give them the most fair price they can. Jack and the sales girl I talked to broke down all the costs before starting the work so I knew exactly what we were paying for. Great staff, patient, kind, and honest. This place treats you like family and wants you to leave happy.
