My car makes weird noise when I turn

Asked by Jun 28, 2015 at 04:07 PM about the 2005 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

Like a growling sound? Power Steering fluid. A clunk or rattle? Maybe tie-rod ball joints or some suspension part. When you turn, even at a relatively slow speed, the Explorer will 'lean' away from the turn, say turning right puts more weight on left side and something may be loose, worn out or just plain broken

If yours is a 4X4 make sure it's not in 4WD on the street. Non 4X4 is rear wheel drive, so not CV joints
