Q: Why does my tire sounds so loud when I turn my wheel?

asked by on

Every morning when I turn my car on when I am about to leave and turn my wheel to the right or left it starts doing a loud noise until I stop turning. I changed the tie rod but I still hear this sound? What can it be?

My car has 118000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. It all depends on the sound you are hearing. If it is a whining sound, then you may be low on power steering fluid caused by a leak in the system or a defective power steering pump. If the noise is a squeak, then you may have bad ball joints, bad strut bearings on top of the struts, or struts that are bad. I can only recommend having a mechanic inspect the noise in person to pinpoint the fault and recommend a repair path for you.
