Q: clicking popping sound when turning sharp left

asked by on

When turning sharp left in a parking lot hear a clicking popping sound from up front. It will stop if i let off the turn but dont do it on right turns or going straight.

My car has 168000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there. Is your Jeep four-wheel-drive? A clicking or popping noise can come from a CV joint with a torn grease boot. The boot develops a tear or leak and the grease will leak over time until the joint is dry and begins to make noise. This is also a symptom of a failed wheel bearing, but a bearing will usually groan at speed as well. If you would like to have this diagnosed properly, a certified technician from YourMechanic can inspect the clicking noise and assist with repair.
