Why Does My Car Make Noise When I Turn?

2022 Volkswagen Passat

Have you ever wondered, “Why does my car make noise when I turn?” If so, you might feel a bit uneasy when taking on your commute from Easton to Stoughton. While some common car noises are just signs of an aging vehicle, others can be symptomatic of a serious issue. Below, our team offers a range of service tips to help you understand what’s causing the strange noises you hear on the West Bridgewater streets.

Common Car Noises When You Turn the Wheel

When you turn the wheel of your vehicle, do you hear a popping or a knocking sound? These are generally considered benign noises that occur when you take a turn. If you hear clunking, creaking, squealing, groaning, screeching, or whining, you may have a serious issue on your hands. If the noise your car is making comes from the latter group, make your way to Silko Volkswagen for an immediate inspection. Our team can diagnose the cause of the sound and provide an affordable solution.

More Common Car Noises

  • Creaking, clunking, or popping at low speeds can be caused by worn-out or broken suspension joints.
  • Whining noises that occur while you’re driving slow could be coming from the engine or from the power steering pump.
  • If you hear crunching when you’re traveling at higher speeds, it might be the CV joints.
  • Screeching or whining sounds that come at normal driving speeds are often indicative of an issue with the power steering system.
  • Clunking while you turn can be a sign that you have a loose or broken tie rod.
  • Poor handling accompanied by a knocking sound is generally caused by a failing sway bar link.
  • If the creaking you hear is getting louder over time, you may have a ball joint issue.
  • Suspension issues are also often identified by creaking noises.
  • Another source of creaking noises could be the bushing joint in your suspension system.
