Sounds like a CV axle. (constant velocity axle) its the part on

your car that turns the front wheels. it is a bar with joints on

each end. the joints are in a rubber boot. this sound is most

likely caused by the rubber boot tearing or slipping off and

expelling all the oil. now your joints have no lubricant and are

probably warped. this happend to my 1993 Toyota corolla 1.8l. to

check yourself turn your wheel all the way to the left and park the

car. MAKE SURE YOU TURN THE CAR OFF! now lay near the front of the

tire and look behind it. there should be the bar i described. look

at the rubber boots on each end if they don't appear OR feel to be

torn then this is not your problem. if they are get it fixed. this

is not a severe problem until the car makes this noise on a strait

away but still you may want to get it fixed.
