Having problems with your 2003 Mini Cooper ?
2005 mini cooper knock felt through steering when turned to right noise does not continue on hard lock
Get the outer CV joints checked
Problem with a CV joint that is worn as it seem that the noise is heard only on partial turn. Try to find from which side the noise come from and replace the CV joint. Not serious if noise level is low and can be used if you do not mind the noise. Check however if the booth (cover) of the joints are intact and are filled with lubricant. Replace as soon as you can

I have a chrysler grand voyager ltd 3.3 2002. The steering wheel shudders when turnning left or right. Sometimes when I start it and try to drive off the steering is stiff and you can't move it. Only when I pull on it really hard that it starts to work. It feels like the steering is locked on something because it makes a clonking noise and becomes loose. I have had a new steering pump put in and it still makes a continual whining noise as it did with the other pump. I have taken it to a steering

Good Afternoon, My power steering system light came on awhile back and I changed the fluid and light continues to stay on. And now making left turns such as parking and making a u-turn the steering is extremely hard. Just the left turns not the right. It's not leaking fluid and not making any kind of noise. What could be the cause and how do I get it repaired without costing an arm and a leg????? Thanks,Vivian Gutierrez

Our 2002 ford windstar lx has a groaning noise coming from the power steering. It is hard to turn the wheel at times and the groaning gets louder when at full lock left or right. fluid level is fine and the noise has been happening for some time. It seems that this is pump failing. Is there anything that I check to see if the issue is the pump or a seal?
If fluid not coming out then the pump is likely toast \015\012go to salvage yard and get a new one if you have tools and time remove the pump your self for added savings and a great learning experience and hell if it comes off easily enough yo ... 1999 Ford Windstar
We have a 2004 Ford Expedition when you turn right there is a noise coming from the wheel on the driver side. At first it was like a grinding noise so we changed the inner/outer tie rods. The noise continued so we changed the rotors. Now, the noise is not as loud but like a tum tum tum noise only when turning what can it be. We can't continue to put money in this truck times are tough right now.

2002 Superduty Ford F-250 4x4. Had auto locking hubs, changed to manual Warn Hubs, but only lasted for 4 lock-in/lockouts and the the right hub will no longer engage. The mecnhcanic could not fix the problem, so he put on my second new set of Warn hubs, worked for 3 lockin/lockouts and the right front hub will not lock back in. this last time it made a grinding noise until I turned the hub to Lock and then back the "Free" where the noise went away. This condition only happens on the passange

Problem # 1: My car's steeering wheel is locking up when I turn a corner. I notice it when I'm making right hand turns. However, most of the trip home is right hand turns. The car does NOT die when this happens. but it does feel like it is dying. When it locks I have to pull hard to the left in order to get it from staying in position. I'm very scared. Problem #2: I have another problem that the car IS dying when I first start it. I have to constantly hit the gas in order for the car t
Check the steering wheel lock first of all. The fact it's only doing it on right hand turns makes me think you need to check the steering linkage. It may be hanging up on a plug wire or something, which would make the engine stumble too. It could ... Mitsubishi Eclipse

I have a 1997 88 Oldsmobile. Just recently it has started making a squealing noise that seems to be coming from the front tires. The noise only happens when I am going straight or turning left, the noise stops whenever I turn right. It's not particularly loud unless I turn left hard or am breaking. I am wondering if it may be out of alignment, as I drive over rough rail road tracks almost every day. Has anyone else had this problem?

On April 29, 2011, a clacking sound started coming from the area of my right front passenger side tire. The noise from the right front passenger sided starts the clacking noise every time I make a right or left turn and when I take off from stop. This noise continues until my speedometer gets between 25 mph and 30 mph when it makes a light clicking sound for a few seconds and then stop. The clacking or clicking sounds goes completely away when I am traveling @ 35 mph and above. 2 guys who work
It sounds like your noise is comming from your right axle.More than likely its the inner CV joint;because,I'm guessing it is making noise while going straight and not just in turns, and when the joint is under high load like from a stop. ... 2000 Ford Focus
Car make noise, look like is left wheel bearing or transmission. When turn right noise dissapear. When car is risen on stands , noise only when left wheel is turning. It is wheel bearing or transmission bearing ? hard to detect the source. with axle out wheel bearing don't make noise when rotated by hand , but transmission with axle in (rotating on support)also don't make noise
Check the CV joint that the axle connects to. They make a clicking sound when turning a corner if badly worn. Both CV joints are commonly replaced when one of them goes out. ... 2002 Mazda Protege

I have a '93 Honda Accord with 230,000 miles. Recently it's been intermittently making a loud squealing noise when turning left or right at low speeds (like the squeaky sound you might hear when rubbing hard while cleaning glass). Doesn't happen all the time and doesn't happen when turning the wheel while standing still. It doesn't occur until after the engine has warmed up. Sometimes I can drive for blocks and make frequent turns with no noise, sometimes I drive the same route and it squeals at

I own a 2005 chevy aveo. The car had been sitting out the majority of the day not being used and the temp outside was minus 23. I went to start my car and the key turned properly but nothing happened, no clicking noise no revving.... nothing. So I turned my wheel a bit and tried to start it and nothing happened. The problem is I turned the wheel again after that a little too hard and it put my car into LOCK. I was able to remove my keys just fine but now its in lock mode and i dont know how to g

I have a 2002 toyota tacoma 2wd with the TRD package and an automatic trans. about 2 weeks ago or so when putting my truck into reverse or drive it kinda bumps hard. and for a little bit it will shift hard into each gear. it seemed to have stopped, but half way home on a drive from TN to GA it started making a funny noise while it was in over drive. i noticed it and turned off my OD from my shifter and the noise seemed to stop but the hard shifting continued. i bought the truck with 71k miles on
