My car has 117000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Sounds like your have bad strut mounts and a broken spring with the spring popping in and out and then getting reset as the spring pops into place. Check the front springs and see if they are cracked or damaged. If the spring is broken, then I suggest replacing the strut assembly. If you need further assistance with your front end making a popping noise when turning the steering wheel, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
