Q: My car makes a woo woo noise

asked by on January 09, 2018

My car makes a woo woo woo noise when I turn right or left and makes the same noise when I brake

My car has 161000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The typical causes of what you are describing are brake system faults, faulty wheel bearings, and possibly the CV axles. There are a few other possibilities but a mechanic would suspect those issues first. If you request a vehicle noise diagnostic, the responding certified mechanic will pinpoint the origin of the noise and indicate what, if any, repairs are needed. All inspections and repairs can be performed on a mobile basis, right at your location. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
