Sounds like worn out front wheel drive CV (constant velocity) joints. A CV joint is a flexible coupling attached to a drive axle. A front wheel drive car will have 4 of these. (2 per side)If they are making noise they probably need to be replaced. If it is a clunking/knocking sound it could be a bad CV joint. If it is a whining sound the power steering fluid may need to be flushed, or possibly the power steering pump may even need to be replaced. If it is a knocking soud while turing, your problem is a rusted out strut mounting pieces, your going to need to get it fixed before it brakes and comes through the top of your wheel well.

Possible wheel bearing, see if noise changes on left & right turns.

Will not move, shake on acceleration, or a popping noise during turns.

51% of turns are right turns.

check the power steering fluid level and belt tension.

A clicking sound either when you are driving or when you make a turn. The Clicking sound will come from the outside wheel during turns, such as if you turn left the right cv will generally make the noise.

it is were it turns on the heat to warm it upThe coefficient of expansion per degree per inch causes the metal to expand and contract making the sounds

AnswerNoises have to be heard to correctly diagnoise. TAke it to a garage. But a good place to look for a noise when the driveline is under torque ( accel and turning) would be the CV axles.

if clicking is in turns than a front axle needs replaced. if turning right it is your left axle-- turning left it is your right axle!! the clicking is the cv joint in axle.

It turns out that it was a bad idle air control valve. Right after I replaced it the loud noise stopped. About a hundred dollar fix, it was well worth it!

When a car makes a squealing noise during turns it means that your roters are worn out and you need new ones, bad breaks can cause wear on roters due to more friction heat being pruduced because of the lack of break pad material so you probably need to get new breaks as well.

Oh Ford Ford explore when I turn my steering wheel to the right just a little bit ago oh

The fear of making right turns is call dextramophobia.

Noise is the most telltale sign of bad wheel bearings. Specifically, a rumbling or growling noise while the car is moving, often louder during turns at a low speed, indicates that the bearings need repair or replacement.

if noise during accelerating probably cv(constant veloscity) joint easiest to shange whole driver side axle shaft if at all left turns not accelerating may be in steering, suspension, or allignment.

This will be a guess, but most Nissan trucks, after you first turn the key to ON, before starting the engine, the electric fuel pump in the tank will turn on and prime itself. It turns off when the fuel pressure rises to normal

Sounds like you may have a broken motor mount that is causing a line to crimp or somethig.
