It's the power steering pump. If it only happens when it's cold it's just a condition related to the oil thickening up. Often a very small bubble of air can get caught inside a power steering pump and it will expand and contract as the pump turns. The condition is quite common and causes no damage other than the annoying sound. If it doesn't bother you, ignore it.

A Geo Metro is a front wheel drive vehicle. When a squealing noise occurs when the wheel is turning, it can be an indication of damage to the CV joints.

Check your wheel bearings. Mine made a noise when turning right and had to replace the wheel bearings and hubs as they are all one unit on my 92.

A whining noise present when turning the steering wheel indicates a faulty power steering pump. As the pump fails, it allows air to enter the system and a distinct whine.

Can be a bad wheel bearing, caliber sticking, u-joint problem, or noise from the tire.

If it is a thumping and a front wheel drive car, it is probably one of the axles.

A defective CV joint will make a grinding noise when you turn the steering will. A bad strut can also cause a grinding noise.

check power steering pump or belt tension.

A bad bearing can cause can the front end of car to make a squeaking noise when turning steering wheel either direction. It can also be caused by bad suspension.

If the sound is a popping sound when turning it is a CV axle, If the sound is a squeaking sound it is most likely your upper strut mount, or a wheel bearing.

An expert would have to hear the noise. Some possibilities are dry top bearing of the shocks, horn ring loose in steering wheel, tire rubbing on frame - -

most grinding noises that come from turning is usually a cv axle that needs to be replaced. Can also be a bad wheel bearing. If you hear the grinding when turning to the right then the left front wheel bearing is bad.
