My car has 277000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. It sounds like you may have a bad joint in your front axle. These have joints that allow the axle to move when turning. When these joints fail they will cause this exact issue. These will need to be checked. It can also possibly be the bearing but that is not as common. If you need help getting this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [diagnose where the noise is coming from] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/clicking-or-popping-sound-is-coming-from-wheels-inspection
