Squealing Sound When You Turn

If your car starts to make some unusual sounds, then it is trying to tell you that something is wrong with your vehicle. One of the most common sounds that you may hear is a squealing or squeaking sound when turning. Here are some reasons why your car may be squealing when you turn.

Bad Lubrication

You may hear a squealing sound because of bad lubrication in the steering wheel or in any components of the steering system (for example, bad lubrication in the steering column or the universal joint .) It’s hard to check by yourself to determine this issue, that’s why you should ask your mechanic to check the specific point of failure within your steering system and add lubrication if this turns out to be an issue.

Suspension Problems

If you hear this unusual creaking or clicking sound coming from the front of the car, the problem may be with the suspension. This issue can be caused by worn out bushings or ball joints , sometimes even attributed to a broken control arm . If you are having suspension problems, you may experience vibrations as well.

Power Steering Problems

You will hear a squeal or a whine, instead of a creaking sound coming directly from the steering column if the issue is with the power steering system. In the power steering system , your car uses hydraulic liquid to generate a turning force. If there is no fluid, for example, because of a leak, you will have problems in turning and hear unusual sounds. Another problem can be a bad or broken belt or a malfunctioning power steering pump .

Don’t ignore these issues, if you noticed one of the causes mentioned above, take your vehicle to your mechanic to diagnose the problem and to fix it. Otherwise, you may have other serious issues with your car.
