Where is the squeak coming from? And is it a squeak or a whine? Could be ball joints, power steering, springs, brakes, we need more info

Re: when i turn my car squeaks

Ball joints will squeak, power steering is a possibility but that usually "groans". Control arm bushings will do it. Stupid question but are your tires inflated properly?

Re: when i turn my car squeaks

brakes are a slim possibility even if its just when you turn. The caliper will "flex" with the sideways pressure while turning and could cause a crack in the pad or the indicator to rub the rotor slightly.

Pin point where it is coming from. Have someone check while you turn the wheel. Does it do it in both directions?

Re: when i turn my car squeaks

It could be moisture on the belt and it is slipping on your pullies. That happened with my Ranger. After about a minute the squeaks would stop. After it would warm up a bit and the moisture was gone.

Re: when i turn my car squeaks

You could have someone drive it in a parking lot for you and you can stand outside of the car and listen.

Also have someone sit in the car and turn the wheel while sitting still to see if you can hear it as well.

Might help you at least figure out what side its coming from. Squeaks are tricky little things.....

Agreed, do that and you will be much better armed to kill that squeak

Re: when i turn my car squeaks

Ball joints or tie rods, ball joints are easy and doesn't cost a whole lot.
