your constant velocity joint is shot. the other side is probably gone to. check the rest of the steering as well.Answeri had the same problem with my 96 breeze. it was the ty rods in the wheels. it cost about 300.00 dollars to fix it I've seen lower ball joints cause the problem. also, make sure the font wheels are tight, that is, check the lug nuts on the wheels.
You probably need new tie rods on that side. have someone turn the wheel and check to see if you have in play any where.
That loud popping noise is most likely a sign that your CV axles are worn out. If you turn to the right and you hear the noise most likely it is the right side. and visa versa for if you turn left.
If im right about the noise, its your cv joints. You can tell which one it is on hearing which side its coming from. Well I believe its coming from both sides.however i did change the passenger side cv axle but not the driver side.and it only does it when im making a u turn.
Front cv joints most likely
Power Steering Fluid Or Power Steering Pump
When the wheel bearing goes, you will usually hear a whining moan noise that will increase as you drive faster, and decrease as you slow down. If the noise is coming from the front, you can determine which wheel it is by steering the car left and right as you travel. Steering the car left causes the weight to shift to the opposite (right) side and vice versa. So if the noise gets louder when you turn right, the left side bearing is worn out...louder when you turn left, the right side is worn out.
when you turn the wheel all the way to the left or right you here a popping noise when the car is rolling.
It probably needs steering fluid.
Many things can cause that, the simplest cause being lack of power steering fluid.
The drive shaft may need to be tightened
There is something serious wrong, take it back!
Only thing i can think of is the power steering. check to see if the fluid is full. If it is, a simple cure is not to turn your wheel all the way :)
Could be the power steering pump.
Check your steering pump to see if you need to add more power steering fluid.
you power steering belt is in need of replacement of the pump is bad if you have done that
Could be a bad CV joint or something to that nature.depends on what kind of noise it is
Power steering belt is slipping, check that the belt is at the proper tension and that you power steering fluid is at the right level.
If the sound is a loud growling , whining, noise you're probably low on power steering fluid. Now the cause of the fluids loss is WHERE ?
Worn right front wheel bearing.
Worn out bushing or steering joint probably.
Bearings, cv shaft, or brakes.
A broken car =]
Low power steering fluid or you need a lube job.
Did it go left or right........ or straight ahead? It's usually the driver's interaction with the steering wheel that causes it.
