Why Does My Car Make Noise When I Turn?

Honda Steering Wheel

After years on the Dayton roads, you may notice signs of wear and tear. Many customers visit us in Voss Honda wondering “Why does my car make noise when I turn?” and this is one of the most common car noises that drivers encounter. While there could be a variety of reasons, our team is here to help. Take a look at some of the culprits behind those steering wheel squeaks, and then schedule your service with our talented technicians at Tipp City.

Common Steering Wheel Noises

When you’re driving a well-maintenance vehicle, you shouldn’t notice any strange sounds coming from your steering wheel at all. However, some Troy drivers notice sounds like:

  • Clunking
  • Popping
  • Creaking
  • Squealing
  • Groaning
  • Screeching
  • Whining

These sounds can indicate issues ranging from minor to serious, so it’s always good to swing by the service department for a diagnosis. The faster your problem is diagnosed, the faster you can get it solved and get back on the Sidney roads!

Reasons for Unexplained Noises

While you can’t diagnose your car’s issue based on noise alone, you can often narrow down your issue using audio clues. Here are some of the most common car noises and the associated problems:

  • Suspension Joints: Hear a creaking, clunking, or popping sound at low speeds? This could indicate worn out or broken suspension joints. 
  • Power Steering Pump: Notice a whining sound at low speeds near the engine? Your power steering pump could be to blame.
  • CV Joints: Hear a crunching noise when turning at high speeds? Then the CV Joints are usually the issue. 
  • Power Steering System: What about a screeching or whining noise while turning at normal speeds? This could result from any number of problems within the power steering system itself, from simple to complex.
  • Tie Rods: Notice a clunking noise when turning? This could indicate a loose or broken tie rod. 
  • Sway Bar Link: Do you notice a knocking sound accompanied by poor handling? A failing sway bar link is likely to blame.
  • Ball Joints: Found a creaking sound that is gradually getting louder? Get your ball joints checked. 
  • Bushing: Do you notice creaking when you turn? Part of your suspension system can either need lubrication or to be replaced.
  • Struts and Shocks: What if you hear a noise coupled with a bouncy feel when going over bumps? Your shocks and struts are probably at fault.
