Q: Car jerks and grinds when I turned

asked by on

I was at a stop light about to turn left on the freeway ramp and when I went to accelerate the car made a grinding sound from the driver front tire area and was jerking so I immediately pulled over and there was grease all over the wheel well and dripping everywhere. Sat there for a while waiting for someone to come help me and then started the car up and it was fine. Had a slight humming sound on the way home.

My car has 32000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
