Q: I hear a rumbling sound when I make a sharp turn

asked by on

When I turn sharply in my Honda, I hear low-pitched rumbles. There aren't any vibrations, it's only a sound. What could this be?

This could be due to a breakdown in your differential oil. Changing the differential oil will normally correct this issue. Use only differential oil suggested by the manufacturer. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who has the training and expertise to inspect if your differential oil is contaminated.
